So, some film reviews from Black Nights Film Festival, Tallinn. 18.11. \”Anarchist from colony\” aka \”Park Yeol\”. Screening in Kosmos IMAX, largest screen in the Baltics. Guest: female lead Moon Choi. The film was surprisingly light-hearted and funny, despite dealing with some gruesome matters. No side was black-and-white, everyone blurred with similar cluelessness and I wouldn´t say they displayed particular intelligence there. There was a lot of hatred, but there were also compassionate hearts, even if they didn´t express themselves loudly.
On the Q&A session, Moon Choi spoke great english and displayed great understanding and sharp analyses of human nature and history. When asked how she approached the character, she mentioned watching La Strada at the suggestion of the director, Lee Joon-Ik, and relying on some strong and independent, but also child-like and naive female characters from the classics, and called her character a feminist, who believes in equality of men and women, but still yearns for love, being deprived of it by her own family. She said the rather loud and bold nature of Kaneko Fumiko came from having to stand on her own and her idealism. The host mentioned Moon also being a writer and a director, to which she shyly admitted she has made a few shorts, and added, that in Korea, female actors don´t much get scripts written FOR them, always being someons´ wife or sister. She said she wants to try change that some day. I definitely became her fan in an instant and I really hope she´ll return to this festival one day as a full feature film director (starring women, of course). she also mentioned The Villainess (also screening on this festival) and got lost in gushing about the cinematography, telling us with exitement how the cameraman jumped after the actress in every scene, and how dynamic the… um…this is how you recognize a passionate filmmaker…
after the Q&A, some local korean fanboys were waiting for her to take pictures and posed with victory signs.

and WYWS ep 32: for a moment I thought the office couple relevation was going into a totally different direction… kind of regretful that it didn´t. Would have been more original.

wtf those categories are nonsensical but I do agree Teacher is fabulous indeed. Star, artist, celebrity? But they got it wrong with Kim Hee Sun, what Daesang blah blah, she is Daebak!

This girl! You tell him. I adore both of them, but Mr Ma can be such a Yesterday Man sometimes. Still, I like them even more than our main couple. They have such interesting dialogue and quest.

    I wish someone will compile their scenes only, or maybe I will do later once this drama completed. I dropped this drama but I’m interested with the story of these two.

I like how BTIOFL gives a generous, equal amount of screen time to the female characters as it does to men. I think this years´ dramas are trying harder in that department. Lets keep this going.

      It is more like I feel more entitled to whine and throw a tantrum because Louie is doing it too.

        Hahah… yeah that whiny boy does bring out the lazy bum in me sometimes! If only I had a Bok Shil like figure to handle my tantrums!

11 tickets for the film festival – german, russian, iraqui, finnish, korean and estonian. There were more Korean films (with guests) but all on \”Hell Joseon\” theme and seemed a bit depressing.

Buamdong Revenge Club: I really want to but they are starting with violence again! And there are so many questions… like how did they end up marrying those jerks? why don´t they divorce? Why protect a jerks´ reputation and not go to police? It kind of doesn´t make sense. And how do people humiliate and abuse others just because of wealth? where is the media? why does none of that become a scandal? I just find it hard to get into, because their circumstances seem avoidable. ok, maybe if I get over my initial desire to shoot a hundred holes into jerk husband, I´ll see it differently. Still hope he IS dead by the end. I would spit in his coffin.

I think Soo-Ji in BTIMFL is my second favorite supporting character this year (really uncomfortable saying \”supporting\”, too, since she has a solid story in the drama & strong mindset. on the other hand, she offers support to her bae now, so it´s appropriate. Really such a YinYang couple. She being the Yang here
