  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Behead the King"

    2017/03/25
    Normally when I write that a movie or drama makes a mockery of history I mean that it does so by portraying events in an exceptionally stupid and implausible way. "Behead the King" mocks history rather differently- most of the story is quite plausible, it's just shockingly crude. Say, a teenage king laughing at farts. Or common people engaging in a professional wrestling style farce. Or nobles passing morality laws while they themselves engage in lewd and indecent sexual acts,...More

    Foreign fairytale narrowly outplays "The Prison" for the top spot... "Beauty and the Beast", Bill Condon's re-imagining of Disney's classic fairytale, fended off a flood of new entries last weekend to secure a second week at the top. Now in its third weekend, the film once again narrowly retained pole position by capturing 32.51% of the sales (650,185 admissions). That sum moves its bottom line in Korea now to over 4 million admissions ($30.1 million) and is currently the third highest-grossing film of the year behind "The King" (5.3 million) and "Confidential Assignment" (7.8 million). Worldwide, "Beauty and the Beast" is closing in on a billion dollars in sales: $876.3 million,...More

    A trio of foreign beasts capture the podium... A new beast arrived in Korea last Thursday and dislodged "Kong" at the top of the chart. With 66.86% of the box office pie, Bill Condon's musical drama "Beauty and the Beast" (Emma Watson, Dan Stevens) dominated proceedings by capturing 1.4 million admissions ($10.5 million). The film, a remake of Disney's 1991 live-action classic, after having also been recently released in America, has already banked $350 million worldwide (the film was produced for an estimated $160 million),...More
