It’s kind of funny how on paper, this movie sounded like Before Sunrise when Yoo Yeon-seok (Warm and Cozy) and Moon Chae-won (Good Doctor) were cast: A man and a woman meet by chance on the KTX train from Seoul to Busan and a romance unfolds over the course of a day. But it turns... More »

by | November 30, 2015 | 96 Comments
I knew Answer Me 1988 was cutting it close to the wire from the start, given that they took two extra weeks to premiere after Twenty Again and didn’t even do a standard pre-show press conference (because they literally didn’t have the time to spare actors and producers for a day), but it looks like...

2015 Blue Dragon Awards
by | November 26, 2015 | 96 Comments
The Blue Dragon Film Awards are one of the biggest awards ceremonies of the year in Korean film, but this time the red carpet seemed more star-studded than usual, perhaps because it’s such a direct contrast to the Daejong Film Awards, which were held last week amidst great controversy.

More posters for tvN’s webtoon adaptation Cheese in the Trap, or perhaps more accurately, Kim Go-eun in Park Hae-jin’s trap.
