Born in Hong Kong in 1960, LAU has worked as a producer, a cinematographer, and Hong Kong's most renowned director, earning him the nickname "the box office hit maker" In 1995, he teamed up with Jing Wong and Wong Man-chun to create BOB and Partner Limited, producing the series Young & Dangerous, which topped the Hong Kong box office for consecutive years. Through < The Storm Riders > and < A Man Called Hero >, he rewrote the record books for action movies and created a sensation across Asia. His dramatic style and memorable soundtracks have been instrumental in raising Hong Kong action films to a new level. The success of his Infernal Affairs trilogy has brought him fame akin to that of John Woo, making LAU most sought after in Hollywood and Hong Kong. Despite his many offers, however, LAU spurned them all for a chance to direct < Daisy >.

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Daisy"

    Every single character in this movie is a naive idiot who is incapable of learning from past experiences. As "Daisy" opens there's some hope that maybe this is actually the point. Portrait artist Hye-Young (played by Jun Ji-hyun) openly notes her lack of romantic experience in the initial voiceover. Romance in the mind of hitman Park-Yi (played by Jung Woo-sung) is kind of sweet and yet, well, also kind of incredibly creepy. It's hard to imagine these two having any kind of future when their initial expectations start out this bizarre. Then we meet Interpol agent Jeong-Woo (played by Lee Sung-jae) and he has the same ridiculous ideas, even though this older presumably more normal man should have grown up out of this nonsense a long time ago,...More
  • CJ Entertainment action thriller THE BERLIN FILE by RYOO Seung-Wan

    2013/01/30, Source,
    Opens in Los Angeles (CGV Cinema), Fullerton (Regal La Habra) and Irvine (Edwards UTC) on Feb. 15 120 min, Korean, English, German spoken, 2013, North American premiere. Director Ryoo Seung-wan is available for phone interviews. Screen International: "Arguably one of the most high profile South Korean releases of early 2013, Ryoo Seung-wan's "The Berlin File" continues to adopt Ryoo's visual trademark through pulsating and spectacular set-pieces". Until now, Korean directors have been underrepresented in the Asian action genre dominated by Hong Kong masters (John Woo, Andrew Lau) and their most passionate American aficionado Quentin Tarantino. With "The Berlin File" - Korea's biggest release of 2013 - American audiences have the chance discover the visual pyrotechnics of Korea's only action auteur, Ryoo Seung-wan,...More

  • Actor Lee Jung-jin's Movie Picks

    2010/11/18, Source,
    Lee Jung-jin [10Asia] "I am actor Lee Jung-jin and I'm still best-known for 2004 film 'Once Upon A Time In Highschool'", said the actor at the press conference for his new film "Troubleshooter" that premiered in September. It is not that he did not star in other films during the past six years. In film "Mapado" (2005) he evoked laughter by appearing in embarrassing 'mompe' pants (loose-fitting attire usually worn by old woman) and practically betraying his former career as a model and in MBC drama "9 End 2 Outs" (2007)" he offered his viewers with a different form of fun by playing a character full of twists called Byun Hyung-tae who looks like a perfectly charming guy only on the surface. And although he acted like a loser in the drama, writing down all the misdeeds his girlfriend makes and even fighting with her physically if necessary, he was still able to win women's hearts by being there when his girlfriend needed him the most. Nonetheless, it is the 2004 film "Once Upon A Time In Highschool" that stands as the most important character to refer to when describing actor Lee. Nothing could stop his character, the charismatic Woo-sik, who could scare off his opponents with just a few words. And he was the same when he had to leave school after losing in a fight against his rival or falling in love, knowing no hesitation. Just like Eun-joo (Han Ga-in) had chosen Woo-sik over the gentle, exemplary student Hyun-soo (kwon Sang-woo), it is this captivating aura that made Lee unforgettable to the audience,...More
