  • [Guest Film Review] "Addicted"

    The 00's decade signaled a trend where romantic films were injected with supernatural and/or mystery elements, in order to stand out from the plethora of entries in the category. "Ditto" and "Il Mare" are two distinct samples, as is the case with "Addicted". Two brothers, race-driver Dae-jin and carpenter Ho-jin live happily in the same house along with the wife of the latter, Eun-soo. One day, both siblings get into traffic accidents at the same time, although in different incidents,...More

  • Kang Ji-hwan's Movie Picks

    2009/12/23, Source
    Korean actor Kang Ji-hwan [photographed by Lee Won-woo/10Asia] There are usually two ways that male actors can have a competitive advantage on television and movie screens. He can be drop-dead gorgeous or have drop-dead fantastic acting skills. Of course, not all actors fulfill either one requirement completely, but in most cases one could tell how much an actor satisfied each requirement. But what makes Kang Ji-hwan interesting is that one cannot quite discern exactly how handsome or how great of an actor he is. Of course, Kang Ji-hwan has an attractive smile and is a very detailed actor. But his appeal comes from that certain something that goes beyond good looks and good acting skills. In other words, there are other actors who are more attractive and more talented than he is, but one cannot easily think of any actor that is better suited for roles in the following movies -- Hong Gil-dong in "Hong Gil-dong", Sunwoo Wan in "Capital Scandal" and Jae-joon in "My Girlfriend is an Agent". This isn't simply because he played these characters well. For parts like Hong Gil-dong, who trudges around with a knapsack and a pole, and the cheesy, immature Modern Boy who is busy seducing women in a midst of societal chaos [in "Capital Scandal"), Kang's looks and acting are a perfect fit for making such comic book-ish characters come to life. Few actors can pull off a really difficult role but it is just as rare to find an actor like Kang, who can play around with interesting characters. So it comes as no surprise that Kang would recommend such comical, imaginative movies as below.,...More

A very good plot. the story twisted and turned throughout the whole story. It even twisted with only 15-20 minutes to go in the movie. If you want to see something original watch this.
quite confusing...LBH character really confusing..have to watch carefully the expression of LBH face to understand the story..anyway, different from others which is good :)
