The swords come out for Six Flying Dragons’ posters
by | September 14, 2015 | 30 Comments
Ha, my first thought upon seeing this new poster for SBS’s upcoming sageuk Six Flying Dragons was that Yoo Ah-in looks more like a fashion model than a warrior or a royal. Perchance he’s striking a pose to become Joseon’s fiercest model-turned-king? Sure, he’s holding a sword up to Kim Myung-min, but he’s also flashing... More »

Kim Myung-min considers a stint in prison for next movie
by | December 8, 2014 | 22 Comments
No, I don’t mean he’s actually going to prison, although when we’re talking about Kim Myung-min (aka Korea’s Method actor extraordinaire), you never know what lengths he’ll go to in the name of character analysis. It’s still in early stages, but the ever-busy Kim (A New Leaf, King of Dramas) is lining up his projects... More »

Movie Review: Closer to Heaven (2009)
by | October 17, 2014 | 18 Comments
Director Park Jin-pyo is best known for unconventional melodramas like Too Young to Die and You Are My Sunshine, but when I heard about the basic premise of Closer to Heaven (내 사랑 내 곁에), I thought perhaps director Park had finally decided to make a conventional terminal-illness melodrama. And in terms of its story,... More »

Kim Myung-min cast as president in disaster film
by | September 9, 2014 | 26 Comments
Normally I find presidents to be the least interesting characters in disaster movies — the scientists usually do the heavy lifting, while politicians panic and then give speeches — but it’s a totally different story if you cast Kim Myung-min (A New Leaf, King of Dramas) in the role. I can see him being a... More »

Himalaya revived, now starring Hwang Jung-min, Jung Woo
by | September 2, 2014 | 20 Comments
This is an interesting re-casting, given that I had just assumed the movie Himalaya was dead once its two leads, Kim Myung-min and Lee Min-ki, dropped the project last year when its production was delayed.
