  • [HanCinema's Drama Review] "Beautiful Gong Shim" Episode 19

    Episode 19 of "Beautiful Gong Shim" is where all the action is. Joon-soo's uncle is caught by his own avarice and stupidity, Joon-soo chooses the righteous path, and Dan-tae solves a decades old mystery while getting his girl. That girl, Gong Shim, didn't have much to do with the episode, which left most of it without Bang Minah's bright Gong Shim,...More
  • "Nameless Gangster" released in North America

    2012/03/28, Source
    PREFACE "My reason for wanting to tell a story from the '80s is because I feel that the current societal climate is very similar. About 3 years ago I got a feeling that the era of my deceased father was suddenly coming back, an era in which everyone's good will is only reserved for their own survival and well being. But like my own father, I did not see these people as selfish fools, but sympathized with them. I wanted to portray these characters not as criminals who were on the wrong side of the law, but as people who tried their best to survive and thrive despite the conditions they were in. People innately follow the times they live in and those who ride it architect the next generation. The '80s in South Korea were an incredibly volatile decade in which a single person's decision could change the direction of an entire era. Following men who lived through that decade, I wanted to show that the eighties had more dramatic appeal than any other decade. I wanted to inquire whether it was the times that were changing the people, or if it was the people that were changing the times. Most of all, I hope that the audience can laugh and identify with these men who lived like kings in the face of loyalty, betrayal, and ambition".,...More
  • Actor Lee Jong-suk's Song Picks

    2011/01/07, Source
    Actor Lee Jong-suk [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] "I went to a restaurant yesterday and there was a lady who called me by my name and gave me a free drink. It was unbelievable!" Lee Jong-suk is a rookie actor from SBS TV series "Secret Garden" who is still not used to people recognizing him on the streets. Despite making short appearances in the show, he has made a strong impression playing the dirt-poor musician Sun who is so broke that he will sing at bars and work on fishing boats but harbors a pride strong enough to jeer right into the face of Hallyu star Oska (played by Yoon Sang-hyun) about how his music "stinks". He confessed that in reality however, he is so shy that he was close to an outcast among the drama team until actor Yoon started speaking to him first. Nonetheless this shy boy who breaks into an occasional smile, proved himself quite charming in his interview with 10Asia,...More
