  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "200 Pounds Beauty"

    In the Spotlight this Week: "200 Pounds Beauty" (2006) by Kim Yong-hwa Earlier this year Korea put out its first 3D tech-tank with "Mr. Go", an expensive experiment that was truly fantastical but still failed to capture the imagination of the Korean public.
