by | April 17, 2014 | 8 Comments
The Korean film industry seems to be taking it literally when people call Ryu Seung-ryong (Miracle in Cell No. 7) a hit-maker, because at this rate I’m pretty sure he’s about to star in every movie that gets made from here to eternity.

I love the man, but he looks like an ajusshi pretending to blend into a room full of high school... More »
