Ha Jung-woo’s new thriller The Terror Live

Is it just me, or does Ha Jung-woo (The Berlin File) come out with a new movie every time I blink? Not that I’m complaining, of course. He’s got a new thriller due out this summer called The Terror Live, also going by 90 Minutes of Terror, about a radio news anchor who gets a call from a terrorist seconds before he blows up a bridge on the Han River. The anchor assumes it’s a prank call and nonchalantly tells him to go ahead and blow it up, and while he’s still on the line, the guy sets off the explosion.

I totally watched the trailer waiting for Ha Jung-woo to spring into action, because it never even occurred to me that he wasn’t ALSO a cop. I literally sat there going, But when’s he gonna kick some ass? Turns out he’s just a news anchor in this movie, so he sees this as a career opportunity and decides to broadcast live on television, and basically has an open line to the terrorist as he threatens subsequent attacks.

But what he thought was the chance of a lifetime turns into a dangerous game, and he becomes the target. He goes from a brash reporter chasing a story to a man afraid for his life, and meanwhile he’s the only person the bomber will talk to. It promises a breathtaking battle of wits and suspense, which sounds like a good way to spend 90 minutes to me. And okay, maybe I’ll still be holding out hope that the news anchor will suddenly yank off his tie and start knockin’ some heads around, but that’s probably not how this is going to go.

The Terror Live opens in theaters August 1.

I really enjoyed this film when it was called 'Midnight FM' and starred Su Ae. Excellent thriller premise.

LOL, it really is the same isn't it? I'd still give it a watch, since I like the suspense that comes with things like this.

I have been a fan of his since I learned about H.I.T. It does seem like he has a new movie out every five minutes. When I first saw the headline, I thought, "Does this guy EVER sleep?"

Sigh, another movie to put on the list and wait form subs. I just need to start studying my Korean harder.

I was this close to saying on my Korean language school applications that I wanted to learn Korean to watch Ha Jung Woo and Choi Min Soo films and finally know all the words to Sung Si Kyung ballads, but I didn't think that would go over well with the grant funders!

that one has been on my radar for a while, because of the director and not the cast. his previous film is somehow my all-time favourite film, so im excited to see what he does on this one.
although, i do wonder what he has been up to since his last one, its been quite a while...

Translation:

He is everywhere... We see his face everywhere... He is torn off(?) from everywhere...

To know that there is only him for the big screen... South Koreans...

The Koreans definitely go not have confidence in new blood! They have a fear of taking risks...

They prefer to bet on "bankable" actors

They don't even search for new talents...

And that lasts (?) for already a good decade...

It's very sad to see...

Their TV and cinema policies are pathetic!

*End translation*
