Lee Seon-kyun gets angry for new movie role
by | August 25, 2014 | 9 Comments
Lee Seon-kyun is lining up his next project after enjoying a successful run with his action thriller A Hard Day earlier this year, and this time takes on the titular character in Angry Lawyer. Okay, so that title doesn’t sound the most exciting, but at least the premise seems promising: It’s a legal thriller about... More »

by | June 22, 2014 | 38 Comments
A Hard Day (previous working title: To the Grave), the action thriller starring Lee Seon-kyun, has held its own against an onslaught of Hollywood blockbusters, selling over two million tickets in the first three weeks of its release. We’ve highlighted the movie before, but in a brief review: Lee Seon-kyun is the investigator Go Geon-soo,... More »

Oh Snap! To the Grave
by | April 7, 2014 | 19 Comments
I hate when movies release only one still at a time (soooo stingy), but as far as single stills go, this one from action-crime thriller To the Grave is pretty compelling. This is the movie starring Lee Seon-kyun as a cop who makes a mistake that results in a death, then tries to cover it... More »

Miss Korea: Episodes 1-2
by | December 23, 2013 | 128 Comments
Miss Korea was the other new drama that premiered last week, and while I wouldn’t call it a straight romantic comedy (it’s a bit moody for that, though not in a bad way), it has some solid things going for it, like two charismatic leads and a backstory to keep their present-day connection crackling with...

Queen-maker and crew in Miss Korea’s promo posters
by | December 16, 2013 | 71 Comments
Posters are out for MBC’s upcoming drama Miss Korea, and mostly what I take away from them is: everybody pretty. The posters illustrate our rather straightforward premise of turning a regular woman into a beauty queen. What’s less clear to me is how this is supposed to be such a challenge when we’re talking about... More »

Miss Korea’s preview introduces its cast
by | December 7, 2013 | 43 Comments
This preview for MBC’s Miss Korea has zero dialogue, but still manages to deliver a pretty efficient intro to the show, which looks (I hope) easygoing and cute. At least, that’s what I expect of the writer-director duo who are reteaming for a third time after Pasta and Golden Time, Kwon Seok-jang and Seo Sook-hyang.... More »

Lee Seon-kyun goes back to high school for Miss Korea
by | December 4, 2013 | 36 Comments
Pwahaha. Lee Seon-kyun is playing HIS OWN high school character? I’m going to go ahead and assume that this makes his new drama Miss Korea a comedy then, because there’s nothing not funny about that. I love the man, but he looks like an ajusshi pretending to blend into a room full of high school... More »

Ha, well this PD-writer team is nothing if not consistent. The writer of Pasta and the director of Golden Time and Pasta are coming back with the new rom-com Miss Korea for MBC this winter, and they’ve called their favorite leading man Lee Seon-kyun up for a reunion tour. He’ll be joining Miss-Korea-to-be Lee Yeon-hee... More »

Jung Yumi and Lee Seon-kyun’s reunion in indie film Our Sunhi
by | September 16, 2013 | 25 Comments
It’s always nice when an indie movie has a good showing at the box office. Director Hong Sang-soo’s latest project Our Sunhi did well in its opening weekend, with over 13,000 tickets sold. Though the numbers pale in comparison to the blockbusters — of course movies like The Face Reader (already nearing 3 million tickets)... More »

Lee Seon-kyun takes action film To the Grave
by | July 4, 2013 | 22 Comments
There’s a new movie on the docket for Lee Seon-kyun (Golden Time, All About My Wife), which answers my question of Huh, where’s he been and is he finally trying to slow down and rest a little? (Conclusion: nope.) ‘Cause for a while there it seemed like he was on a tear, going from movie... More »
