"Ragnarok" still rules despite stiff competition from "The Bros"...
"Thor: Ragnarok" stood its ground against local writer/director Chang You-jeong's new comedy-drama, "The Bros". From 1,047 screens, down from 1,640, the seventeenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe added 833,949 admissions (38.31%), bringing its total tally in Korea to 3.7 million, or $28.8 million. Worldwide, from a production budget of $180 million, "Thor: Ragnarok" (starring a more comedic Chris Hemsworth) has grossed nearly half a billion dollars. Taika Waititi's "Thor" now needs another 256,000 admissions to overtake "The Fortress" (3.8 million) and enter this year's top ten,...More
[Video] Yoo Seung-ah's cuts from film "Method" 2017/11/01, Source,
There is something so grounded about Yoo Seung-ah's work on screen and that can be keenly felt in these cuts from her most recent film, "Method". She is the rational one of the three main characters, even when crying. While the two men become untethered by the play they are in, she sinks her heels more firmly than ever into reality, which is something Yoo Seung-ah does very well,...More

With each still that comes out, "Method" is looking like it taps more into passion than ever, even verging on wild incontrollable emotion. Both men look as though they were caught by the light, deeply immersed into acting, or perhaps something more?,...More

Two men become so deeply entrenched in their roles that the lines between reality and stage start to blur. Are the emotions they feel real or a byproduct of their intense work? It's a question worth exploring, especially since so many artists and creators suffer through simliar transformations,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Birth of a Married Woman" Episodes 8-10 2016/12/24,
With the preparations firmly in place all there is for Yeong-hee and Cheol-soo to do now is actually get married. Surprisingly, the final steps of the process aren't actually all that intricate or difficult. I suppose this is the main advantage of the South Korean pseudo-Western wedding format. Is it impersonal? Sure. But with all the complicated planning that has to go into making a wedding happen, it can be reassuring to leave the actual ceremony to professionals who pull it off several times a week,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "The Birth of a Married Woman" Episodes 5-7 2016/12/17,
For whatever reason this week's episodes of "Birth of a Married Woman are much shorter than the first ones. The general themes remain well intact. First it's discussions of wedding dresses. And I have to admit, it did not occur to me that there was such sheer variety in the different kinds of wedding dresses available. But alas, I am a man so like Cheol-soo, I don't have that great an emotional reaction to wedding dresses, instead eschewing emotional reactions for generally boring practicality,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "The Birth of a Married Woman" Episodes 1-4 2016/12/10,
Yeong-hee (played by Yoon Seung-ah) is pushing thirty and starting to feel old- after all, isn't everyone supposed to be married by that point? Then, like a champ, her longtime boyfriend Cheol-soo (played by Lee Joon-hyuk) casually broaches a completely serious proposition of marriage, and so the planning begins. With it, Yeong-hee and Cheol-soo both work to answer that all too critical question- what exactly is involved with planning a wedding anyway?,...More

Official poster for MBC sitcom "All my Love" [MBC]
At the press conference for MBC sitcom "All my Love", each of its cast members told their own stories to the romantic relationships they get involved in within the show. Brown Eyed Girls member Son Ga-in and boy band 2AM member Jo Kwon, who played a make-believe couple in reality show "We Got Married" have re-united in "All my Love" as brother (Ok-yeop) and sister (Geum-ji), while actor Kim Kap-soo's lost daughter Yoon Seung-ah is set to get romantically involved with Jo Kwon. And Geum-ji will get entangled in a love triangle with Kim Kap-soo's mysterious assistant Jeon Tae-soo and Ok-yeop's friend Yoon Doo-joon. Below are excerpts from the press conference where they detailed the difficulties about shooting a sitcom and the incidents on set. Q: You appeared in movie "Closer to Heaven" but this is your first time trying your hand at a sitcom. How has the acting been? Son Ga-in: I wanted to try my hand at a traditional drama after I've really honed my acting skills when I'm older but I had no idea I'd appear in a sitcom. And the story didn't develop much in the beginning so I wasn't able to immerse myself into my role as Geum-ji or the incidents since I don't know what sort of person she is. But I think my acting has become more natural after trying to be more of myself. I've been having fun starting from the 15th episode and I think I'll be more natural from the 20th episode onward,...More
