I’m not quite sure whether this movie is going to be light, serious, or mysterious, but in any case a movie called Mutant is sure going to capture my attention. And with this casting, I’m hoping that the mutant idea is executed skillfully, as the project has now tapped Park Bo-young (Wolf Boy), Lee Kwang-soo... More »

Fashion and intrigue propel period melodrama Tailors
by | November 5, 2014 | 34 Comments
I would expect no less from a movie that’s all about royal clothing and the people who make it, but these posters for Tailor sure are beautiful. We’ve also got our first trailer, which is equally beautiful, and also highlights for us the story’s mix of tension, intrigue, romance, and thrills. Tailor is about two... More »

by | October 31, 2014 | 27 Comments
Is it just me or did this movie happen very quickly? Obviously I’m not going to complain when it means we get more Kim Woo-bin (Heirs) — maybe it’s just because he’s in so many projects lately that they’re all starting to blur together. Here’s a peek at the posters and stills for his new... More »

Joo-won’s ugly duckling transformation in Fashion King
by | October 24, 2014 | 54 Comments
I’m pretty sure this movie is going to be one big crock o’ crazy, but I’m planning to watch it for the visual shock alone. Will you get a load of Joo-won? It’s a little hard to adjust when I’m already so used to seeing him as a very poised classical music student in Cantabile... More »

Buzz about a new movie for Lee Jung-jae (The Face Reader) is pretty par for the course, but there’s some extra excitement stirring for the possible new team-up between Lee and acclaimed writer-director Heo Jin-ho, of the classic melodramas Christmas in August, One Fine Spring Day, and Happiness, and 2012’s Dangerous Liaisons starring Jang Dong-geun...

Yoo Seung-ho and Go Ara courted for Joseon-era romance
by | October 13, 2014 | 38 Comments
Oh, is Yoo Seung-ho (I Miss You, Arang and the Magistrate) already looking at army comeback projects? That was fast. I do love the early signs of an actor’s return from army duty — the movie and drama offers start rolling in, and fans can start counting down the days until he’ll be back onscreen.... More »

I know, you want to know if there’s actual mud. There is! There’s plenty for the boys to roll around in and then some. The first teaser is out for the action noir movie Gangnam 1970, formerly known as Gangnam Blues (boo, I liked the first title better), starring Lee Min-ho (Heirs) and Kim Rae-won... More »

This one, the Buil Film Awards, is actually in conjunction with the Busan International Film Festival, which we posted about yesterday and which’ll be running for the next week and a half.

2014 Busan International Film Festival’s opening red carpet
by | October 2, 2014 | 59 Comments
It’s red carpet season! I both love and hate awards/festival season (fall-winter, mostly) because on one hand, it’s never a burden to look at scores of beautiful people strutting a formal event looking (mostly) their best, but on the other, these posts can be massive and a pain to compile. But let our pain be... More »
