by | June 16, 2009 | 37 Comments
The movie Billion [10억] seems to have adopted the English-language title A Million, which is odd since the title literally means “a billion.” I can only surmise that this is a rough conversion of money, since 1 billion won is a little less than 1 million dollars, which is the prize money in the plot...

From the set of Insadong Scandal
by | February 6, 2009 | 38 Comments
I can’t say I’m exactly excited about the new art-themed movie Insadong Scandal, but I do really like Kim Rae-won (Gourmet), who acts with an effortless charm. (On the other hand, “Korea’s Madonna” Uhm Jung-hwa (Seducing Mr. Perfect) is a little hit or miss for me… and I’m sorry to be shallow, but her face... More »
