Working together in the past as assistant director and director this team of teacher and student brings us two films in one. They share the same lead and Some qualities that one can only assume were planted into Kim Tae-sik by his teacher Park Chul-Soo. These films seem to only fit together only in the minds of our directors. The documentaries at the start give us a bit of insight into the overall theme, but in the end they are separate works that must be looked at separately,...More

Actor Ji Jin-hee [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia]
For a long time on television, Ji Jin-hee wore the kind smile his character Min Jung-ho of smash hit TV series "Dae Jang Geum" wore. Even though Min was the only upright character he played. "Many people watched the show. And the TV commercials played a huge part too. I was wearing a suit in most of them, or were finance-related commercials so that image kept getting reinforced". That is why the path he took after "Dae Jang Geum" looked like his struggle to break free from Min. His advertiser complained because he ruined his image so much through the roles that followed -- as a hopeless libertine in drama "Miss Kim’s Adventures in Making a Million", a good-for-nothing cartoonist in film "Bewitching Attraction", an activist student out of prison in "The Old Garden", and a cruel hired killer in "Soo". It looked like he was attempting to scrub off his upright image completely but Ji's response revealed he was actually not too bothered. "I think having such an image is my strength since I can turn around people's expectations and make them surprised that I have different sides too".,...More
Ji Jin-hee: 'I Don't Regret a Thing' 2010/02/10, Source,
In the beginning of the new film "Parallel Life", the image of character Kim Suk-hyun, who is the youngest chief prosecuting attorney in Korea, is fairly similar to actor Ji-Jin-hee's when it comes to integrity. On the one hand, Kim is a hard-headed attorney who absolutely believes in his judgments based on the available evidence, but on the other hand, he is an attentive and loving father when he spends time with his family.
Ji has given viewers the impression of gentleness and integrity principally through the character Min Jung-ho in the drama "Dae Jang Geum", and as an exclusive model for a bank advertisement, though he has played diverse characters, including funny and charismatic ones, in TV dramas and movies up to now.,...More

If your life was exactly the same as someone else's from the past, what would you do? Is it a blessing or a curse -- without having to ride a time machine back in time -- to be able to know what your future holds for you by looking at someone else's life? The film "Parallel Life" begins with an anecdote about U.S. presidents Lincoln and Kennedy. Like the two presidents who lived very similar lives but existed 100 years apart, character Kim Seok-hyun (played by Ji Jin-hee) -- who is the youngest person to be appointed chief prosecuting attorney -- becomes increasingly aware that he is caught up in the whirlwind of the parallel theory. Every circumstance surrounding him runs exactly the same as they did for judge Han Sang-joon, whose entire family was murdered thirty years ago, and hence begins the mind games of Kim Seok-hyun who tries to protect his family.,...More
