April Movie Releases

(waterleaf has compiled a list of films releasing this month, the trailers for which you can watch below. Enjoy the sneak preview. —javabeans)

“폭풍전야” (Stormy Night aka Lovers Vanished)

This is a story about a man (Kim Nam Gil), who after being betrayed by love is falsely accused and put in prison. He escapes with the help of an inmate and sets out on the path of revenge. Yet his desire for revenge starts to fade as another women (Hwang Woo-seul Hye) starts approaching his heart. In a lone restaurant on the beach, the two start a sad “lie-like love story”.

Watch trailer:

 

“작은 연못” (A Little Pond)

This is an anticipated remake of an popular 20-episode drama which aired in the 1970s by KBS. A documentary with a political bent, it is an uplifting overview of modern Korean history. Not much energy was put into the visuals but rather on the message given through various incidents and actors/people within the documentary.

Watch trailer:

 

“구르믈 버서난 달처럼” (The Moon that has escaped the clouds)

Javabeans has already gone into depth about this movie, which is set in 1592, under the reign of King Sunjo staring Cha Seung Won, Hwang Jung Min, Han Ji Hye, and Baek Sung Hyun.

(You can read more about the plot here and here.)

Watch trailer:

 

“집 나온 남자들” (The Men who Left Home)

This movie stars Ji Jin Hee as Sung Hae, a music critic with perfect looks and a sexy voice. One day, he unilaterally announces a divorce on the radio without any consultation with his wife and he and his friend of ten years, Dong Min (played by actor Yang Ik Jun) go away together. However, the very next morning, Sung Hae feeling guilty and remorseful calls his wife and returns home only to find out that his wife left him a day before he did! Feeling betrayed, the two friends tap into his wife’s cellphone to find out her location and goes about enacting revenge.  Lee Moon Shik stars also as Ji Jin Hee’ s wife’s new “oppa”. The trailer has a very light and comic feel. One scene which made me laugh was when Ji Jin Hee remarks “How can I call my family at such a time?” to which his friend replies: “Then, when your wife is missing, do you call you’re in-laws?”

Watch trailer:

 

“베스트셀러” (Bestseller)

The final release Bestseller seems to be cross between horror and thriller, staring Um Jung Hwa, who for the last ten years enjoyed life as the best author in Korea. However, after she is accused of  plagiarism she and her daughter escape to the countryside. There, Um Jung Hwa does not find the calm that she searched for, but rather a house full of mystery. From the strange sounds that echo through the house, to the strange “unnie” that her daughter talks to, and the spreading blackness on her ceiling, the house becomes a fascination to its two inhabitants. Um Jung Hwa eventually writes about the house and the stories that “unnie” tells her child and publishes yet another bestseller. However, she is again accused of plagiarism as it turns out another book with the exact storyline was already published ten years ago. Um Jung Hwa then goes back to the house to figure out the mystery surrounding the house and her novel.

집 나온 남자들 looks really funny.

Just the kind of movie that I would love to see...

...if my Korean were better. I get like most of the trailer, but then there are some stuff that I KNOW is supposed to be funny but I don't get it.

Like when I watch stuff with other k-peepz, and then they all laugh at something, and I'm sitting there like "hehehe oh.... who am i kidding, i have no clue what i'm laughing about..."

My lack of instant Korean fluency is KILLING ME. KILLING ME! GAAAAAAAAA.

"Lovers Vanished" looks interesting and "BestSellers" looks intense!

Either way, I would love to see both and some of the others as well. :) Thanks for the previews!

woohoo I love trailers. Thanks for posting this. I've been waiting for 폭풍전야 for a while now! Kim Nam-gil!!!!!! (heh, I'm afraid that movie is not going to end well :/ )

Oh and 구르믈 버서난 달처럼 I forgot that one was being released soon. Thanks for reminding me

@Samsooki
Hey, don't give up. Humor is very difficult to get when you're learning a new language. I'm familiar with that feeling you've just described; I'm still struggling with English. Also? I'm fairly sure you're better than you think

This is so cool. Though I don't understand Korean by just looking at the vids all of them are worth watching.

Oh My! Stormy Night looks fantastic! I'm loving its cast and the moodiness. Just hope no one dies in it. Never seen the actress before but she looks a lot like Go Ara -- so pretty.

ONE QUICK QUESTION.
i know that this is the wrong article to ask this but i was wondering who the MAIN love interest is in "Prosecutor Princess."

Hm. I watched several k-movies but all had a light romantic-comedy feel to them so i'm not sure how i feel about these.

oh, I like this posting. The movies all look so good and each one is different, a spooky, a saeguk, a comedy, etc. I just have to wait or hope they're subtitled! I hope this becomes a regular feature along with all the other great stuff that Dramabeans is known for!

While Lovers Vanished is a testament to Kim Nam-Gil's talent, it was so damned depressing.
