  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Showdown"

    Kang-ho (played by Lee Jung-jin) and Poong-ho (played by Lee Joo-seung) are brothers who have always fought. Not in the general normal way brothers fight, but in actual straight-up fistfights. Kang-ho has usefully parlayed this skill into becoming an action movie detective, which is like a regular detective except they get into a lot more massive Hong Kong style action sequences. Through†the mysterious disappearance of an Indonesian immigrant, the brothers run across Jae-hee (played by Oh Ji-ho),†a wealthy businessman†who beats people into disability and/or death mostly just for the fun of it,...More

  • As Heat Wave Continues, Could Ice Cream Help You Stay Cool, Lose Fat, and Feel Happy?

    2013/08/31, Source,
    As the sweltering heat and humidity that greets Korea every summer continues, people search for ways to stay cool. Some wear shorts and sandals.

However, perhaps the most enjoyable way to escape the sizzling summer blaze is with ice cream. While people eat ice cream all year long, summer is unquestionably the ultimate season for its indulgence, even in countries where ice cream is not a traditional dessert, like Israel. In Korea, too, more ice cream is consumed in the summer than in any other season, according to online trade data system Global Trade Atlas.

    Films from Greater China increasingly employ technical specialists from Korea - KIM Seong-hoon reports   For a long time, the film industry has evolved according to emergences of new technology and this has meant new opportunities for those working in the field. We all know how when "talkies" were invented, many silent movie actors lost their jobs and at the same time, many other people found work as synchronized sound technicians and post-sync supervisors. When things went digital from film, jobs were created in the field of digital intermediate and color calibration. In a similar vein, when 3D films became the trend, new kinds of specialists came to be in demand in post-production. We could perhaps begin to understand the emergence of Korean film makers in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan in a same vein - technicians of VFX, special effects, and stunts who hail from Korea,...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

    Korean entertainer Rain in Los Angeles [photographed by Chae Ki-won/10Asia] Rain says "really want to brag about this one", referring to his win at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards It was only a year ago that Rain was overwhelmed after winning a trophy at an awards ceremony which looked a lot like the MTV Video Music Awards. Of course, it was a television commercial for a Korean mobile telephone company. When Rain gave his acceptation speech at the fully-packed venue amidst the applause from the crowd, the sight looked so unattainable that it felt like "a miracle" or "a fictional news event". But this young man, who claims that "a miracle is something you create, not something somebody hands you", has eventually grabbed that very dream in his hand. Instead of uttering some unknown magic words, Rain endured extremely demanding, five-hours-a-day training sessions and kept on running like "a tiger on the verge of starving to death" to make it to the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. At the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, 10Asia met with Rain -- a man who, like his name, exudes a freshness to the desert-adjacent, hot city of Los Angeles,...More
