High-octane thrills for fugitive Gong Yoo in The Suspect
by | December 1, 2013 | 43 Comments
Sure, it’s a pretty timeworn formula to make your blockbuster action movie about a super spy who’s been left to fend for himself in a strange land, but hell, I’ve seen the Bourne trilogy more times than I can count, so it’s not like I’d say no to slick, pulse-pounding thrills. Plus, Gong Yoo. His... More »

Gong Yoo goes from hunter to hunted in The Suspect
by | November 5, 2013 | 81 Comments
Helloooo there, Gong Yoo and Gong Yoo’s Abs (which surely deserve their own mention, no?). He’s got a new action-thriller movie in the works called The Suspect, which has released a “real action trailer” and promo stills and plans to release by the end of the year. In the film, Gong Yoo plays former elite... More »

by | May 31, 2013 | 43 Comments
Does Gong Hyo-jin never rest? She seems to be doing piling on the back-to-back projects these days, with a bunch of films (Boomerang Family, 577 Project, Love Fiction) and a drama on the way (the horror-rom-com from the Hong Sisters). Now there’s You Are More Than Beautiful, a short film set to release in two... More »

Posters for All About My Romance
by | March 29, 2013 | 63 Comments
Upcoming political rom-com All About My Romance has finally released its posters, and uh… the result is a little underwhelming. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen fanart pop up two hours after a drama casting announcement (*cough Lee Min-ho cough*) that look better than these, but I think the white ones are likely pre-photoshop, which then...

by | March 5, 2013 | 37 Comments
I know, I know — I wish the production of All About My Romance gave us more to go on, too. But for now we’ll have to make do with this first official still, above, picturing the leads of the political romantic comedy, Lee Min-jung (Big) and Shin Ha-kyun (Brain). Then below, we’ve got behind-the-stills... More »

Movie Review: Gabi (Coffee)
by | October 14, 2012 | 34 Comments
There is one thing that pulled me into watching this film, and that one thing delivered. In this quiet conspiracy thriller, Kim So Yeon battles her conscience as a spy who’s ordered to assassinate Emperor Gojong in the late 1890s. Also starring Joo Jin Mo and Yoo Sun, this film was certainly not what I expected in more ways... More »

Movie Review: The Client
by | April 22, 2012 | 55 Comments
Considered the first Korean courtroom thriller to hit the big screen, The Client is a commanding cerebral experience headlined by three acting heavyweights and a taut storyline that will keep you guessing, or at the very least second-guessing, until its explosive finale. It premiered to critical and box office success, taking second place to The... More »

Coffee’s “special poster” and additional trailer
by | February 26, 2012 | 52 Comments
I know, lots of posts about Coffee, but despite danger of Coffee overload (as if there could BE such a thing!), the latest poster (above) was too good not to share. They should’ve made that the main poster… although I suppose they’ve all been strong, and eye-catching in their own ways. This one provides a... More »

Coffee’s action-packed trailer and comic-inspired posters
by | February 3, 2012 | 48 Comments
Now THIS looks cool. The trailer and posters are out for the historical spy movie Coffee, which are totally different from what I was expecting, but in the best way — it’s historical action with a twist. And the character posters have a comic book feel that is totally different from what I thought this... More »

Kim So-yeon turns into barista-spy for historical thriller Coffee
by | January 21, 2012 | 48 Comments
Death by coffee. That seems to be the main idea behind spy-intrigue-historical-thriller film Coffee (phonetically Kabi, per the old word for the drink). Well, I’m sure there are worse ways to go. Said the coffee nut who named herself after the addiction. Above is the film’s newly released poster, which I find intriguing. It sets... More »
