A Washington Post film critic has hailed the South Korean movie "Typhoon" as very Korean as well as universal.

In the daily's Saturday edition, Stephen Hunter said the movie deals with loss, pain and a sense of insignificance shared by Koreans but is vivid enough to have a universal appeal.

He compared the two lead actors Jang Dong-gun and Lee Jung-jae to Bruce Willis following Sean Penn.

On Lee's donning of a white naval uniform in the movie, Hunter said his gorgeous look will make people want to become a cadet.
