Pretty boys overtake the screen... this fall is the season for them
Published on | Source
After the female-dominated last year and after this summer filled with men, it will be the season for pretty boys.
The faces are brilliant.
Gang Dong-won, who had stayed inactive after "M", will come back with "Tazza: The High Rollers" Director Choi Dong-hoon's "Jeon Woo-chi". He is the first of the pretty boys, and will play a character who is born again into modern times after being trapped in a picture due to his wasteful life.
Director Min Gyoo-dong's "Antique", set to premiere this fall, is drawing attention for the union of many pretty boys. Ju Ji-hoon, Kim Jae-wook, Yoo Ah-in, and Choi Ji-ho were introduced recently through movie programs and provoked female sentiment.
"Antique" is drawing popularity because of the popularity of a Japanese comic of the same name and the love relationships among the pretty boys. Japanese fans even came to see Ju Ji-hoon on the set, for he is popular in Japan for "Princess Hours". This work is anticipated to be popular in Japan. This work also concluded contracts with a Japanese company at the Cannes International Film Festival.
Jang Keun-suk, who captured hearts of older women from a young age, will join in the wave of pretty boy movies.
Satoshi Tsumabuki, who is popular for "Josee, The Tiger and The Fish", will be starring in the Korea-Japan joint movie "Boat" with Ha Jung-woo. Satoshi Tsumabuki has to take care of an object that was smuggled in Korea.
The reactions of the movie industry are varied.
It may be a coincidence, but it may also have happened naturally, for they take the female audience's interests into heart.
Whether coincidence or not, it seems many female audiences who attend the movies will be happy this fall.
