  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Apostle"

    Why do missionaries in hostile environments keep trying? Surely it becomes obvious pretty quickly that whoever's persecuting them is taking that work very seriously. Cheol-ho (played by Kim In-kwon) knows this all too well. The first scene in "Apostle" depicts Cheol-ho in North Korean custody. The officers in charge are not...pleasant people. The tone soon takes a turn for the brutal and vicious. The message is clear. Don't proselytize again. And yet that's what Cheol-ho continues to do. Now, make no mistake, even if he is a man sent by God, Cheol-ho is all too mortal. He has fears, anxieties, and worries,...More

  • Working Mom Stars Kim Ha-neul, Jeon Hye-jin-II and Cha Ye-ryun

    2019/07/08, Source
    Dramas with a variety in subject matter are filling up the small screen. It's even more fun watching the actors' performances. Among other things, the performances of actresses who have returned from a long hiatus stand out. Kim Ha-neul from jTBC's "The Wind Blows", Jeon Hye-jin-II from tvN's "Search: WWW" and Cha Ye-ryun from the KBS 2TV drama "Perfume" all share the common factor of being working moms. They have all found places in the dramas as key figures and opened a second chapter of their acting careers,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2015.04.24 ~ 2015.04.26

    Mind the Gap: The "Avengers" return to ruin… Crumbs. That's what Marvel's monster left for the rest of the pack over the weekend, crumbs. Its pre-sales were brilliant, over a million, and a million more stormed cinemas across the country to catch the heroes' phenomenal return (as well as to catch South Korean model-turned-actress Claudia Kim make her movie debut as a support character). The hype building up to its release made the weekend's landslide no surprise, but the furiosity of the frenzy was still a sight to behold as "Avengers: Age of Ultron" affected a perfect cinematic storm,...More

  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2014.04.18 - 2014.04.20

    The "Captain" remains on course... The weather may be heating up but Marvel's "Winter Soldier" still managed to stick it out for yet another week at the top of the pile. The comic captain added another 242,939 admissions (24.2%) over this past weekend to bump its bottom line to $28.6M (3.7M admissions), securing its place as the fourth highest grossing film of the year. The "Captain", however, had some stiff competition this time around as Neil Burger's sci-fi action film "Divergent" snatched a virtuous 212K (21.1%) during its first weekend out. Overall, foot traffic has been soft this year, and the Korean representatives have struggled to find/maintain traction in the top ten,...More
