  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Hindsight"

    Lee Hyun-seung's return to filmmaking took the form of the rather limp and indulgent "Hindsight", a less than enthralling piece that lead actor Song Kang-ho will surely wish to forget along with Hyeon-seung himself. The film failed to create a buzz at the 16th Busan International Film Festival; in fact it was harshly slammed. The local box office figures mirrored that same stiff response as Hyeon-seung's soporific characters wander meaninglessly through the film's dreamy, but jarring inconsistent, visuals,...More

    2017/08/14, Source
    Song Kang-ho is the creme of the crop in the Korean movie industry. The film "A Taxi Driver", which surpassed 8 million viewers in 13 days and stands at the threshold of the first 10 million film in 2017, depicts the painful history of the Gwangju Democratization Movement. It resonates with the audience with its thoughtful directing and story that touches the painful past.

  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Jang Young-nam

    Some actors just have looks or a style of appearance and carrying themselves that are not typically associated with star qualities. Getting a breakthrough role depends a lot on image, but also choices. Jang Young-nam is an actress who might not have the preferred image of a star, but who has chosen her roles wisely, focusing on interesting characters that offer her material to work with as an actress, rather than an image. Jang made her start as a stage actress in 1995 and has worked in productions since then. Having done both her drama and movie debuts in the early 2000s, she has had a prolific career in all three industries as well as time to adjust and find her strengths in all of them. Much like many secondary actors, her choices in cinema and drama have given her the opportunity to try different genres and interesting characters, building her skills and prestige,...More
