Preview screening for horror movie Chaw

Just watch, I’ll bet that after all the razzing I’ve done about Chaw [차우], it’ll put me to shame and turn out to be a hit. It’s just that I can’t get past the dubious-sounding premise of a wild, people-killing boar going on the rampage near a small village that results in a hunt through some remote mountains. But I’m hesitant to write it off, if anything because the cast is so solid.

The film held its preview screening and press conference on the afternoon of July 8, attended by the film’s stars (Uhm Tae-woong, Jung Yumi, Jang Hang-seon, Yoon Jae-moon, and Park Hyuk-kwon) whose characters form a five-member hunting team to capture the murderous beast.

Jung Yumi related a story of actually eating a caterpillar as part of her filming experience. When the director of photography had asked after the filming had wrapped whether she felt disappointed by anything, she had named one breakfast scene because she hadn’t actually eaten the caterpillar that was supposed to come out of the food prepared in the mountainside. Jung explained, “I didn’t know we’d actually re-shoot it. When the director said, ‘Let’s do it again’ in June, I was surprised. The crew, art team, wardrobe, and the entire staff got to work.” Her reasoning was, “even if the character didn’t eat the whole thing, I felt she would at least give it a taste.”

(So… I infer that Jung Yumi is again playing a quirky oddball, then? Love it.)

Chaw opens in theaters on July 15.

Uhm Tae-woong is currently wearing his hair long for his television series, the Monday-Tuesday historical drama Queen Seon-deok:


 
Jung Yumi (Que Sera Sera, Oishii Man) looks pretty in pink, and also white:


 
Yoon Jae-moon (Mother) and Park Hyuk-kwon (Bandhobi, Antique Bakery):

 
And Jang Hang-seon looks pretty happy to be there, although I’ve grown to think of him as selfish, gruff Chairman Chae of Story of a Man:

Is it just me or does my Uhm Tae Woong look sorta kinda like Jackie Chan? Not liking the hair, I like the clean cut hair better. Isn't Queen Seon deok gonna run for like 50 episodes? Which means the Jackie Chan hair will be around for a while :(

The best scene in Welcome to Dongmakgol featured a wild boar on the rampage. Never has slow motion been used so effectively.

I'd watch Chaw for the story alone. I like stuff like that!

<--- kinda lowbrow

Is Jung Yumi wearing her shower curtain? i'm sure the dress looks better in person but it didn't photograph well. i almost did not recognize UTW, the long hair makes him look older :(

I agree about UTW. That is definitely not the best hairstyle for him and he sure does look different and maybe older?

I love Uhm Tae Woong in Sassy Girl Choon Hyang and of course Mawang. Despite his age he still has that charm, but now with his wavy hair, he gets minus points in that department. Please, please, please convince him to sport the clean cut look....NOW!!
