2014 Busan International Film Festival’s opening red carpet

It’s red carpet season! I both love and hate awards/festival season (fall-winter, mostly) because on one hand, it’s never a burden to look at scores of beautiful people strutting a formal event looking (mostly) their best, but on the other, these posts can be massive and a pain to compile. But let our pain be your gain, I suppose?

Hot on the heels of the Korea Drama Awards just the night before, stars and film industry folks headed down to the coast for one of Chungmuro’s biggest festivals, the Busan International Film Festival, now in its 19th year. The ten-day event kicked off on October 2, and over the course of the next week and a half will screen more than 300 films from 79 countries.

No awards tonight; just lots and lots of stars. So let’s get to it.

 

Jung Woo-sung arrived with his Madam Bbaeng-deok co-star, newcomer Esom, both of them looking polished and pretty.

Their film just opened this weekend, and has been making the promotional rounds, building up some buzz for its racy interpretation of a classic folktale…


 

But it was The Informant, another new opener, that came out on top, taking first place on opening day. (Cha Tae-hyun’s Slow Video was the third Korean film to open the same day, taking second place.) And boy oh boy isn’t it a great time to be Yoo Yeon-seok, who is the It Boy (Guy? Man?) of the moment. I do wonder how long it’ll take him to leave the Chilbongie image behind, but to be honest, who’d gripe about being dogged by the specter of a character loved for being sweet and perfect?

He’s here with his co-stars from The Informant, Ryu Hyun-kyung, who pops in bold hot pink, and the always-wonderful Park Hae-il.


 

For a brief second I was confused as to why Yoo Ji-tae (Healer) and Cha Ye-ryun (She’s So Lovable) came together, since it’s been six years since they acted together in the romantic melodrama A Star’s Lover. As it turns out, they’re in another project together, The Tenor – Lirico Spinto. There were a lot of people doing the black-and-white thing tonight, but their look just may take the cake. Cool, finished, flawless.

 
Uhm Jung-hwa (Venus Talk, Witch’s Romance) favors black for most of these red-carpet events, but I’ll give it to her—she manages to do a different take every time. Well, as different as you can get within the parameters of black, sophisticated, and fits like a glove.

We can still swoon over the romance Uhm Jung-hwa had with noona-killer Park Seo-joon in Witch’s Romance, right? Isn’t he looking dapper here in a crisp blue tux.

 

This is one of my favorite looks of the night. I’m not sure what to call the not-quite-necklace worn by Tang Wei (The Golden Era, Late Autumn), but now I want one. Her graphic-print gown isn’t too bad either, giving her a modern edge. If I looked like this in this dress, I’d wear it everywhere.

 
Moon So-ri (Venus Talk) was one of the opening event’s hosts, along with Japanese and Hollywood actor Ken Watanabe (Godzilla, Inception)—aie, I love him. Don’t they look elegant?


 
Jo Jung-seok (love him!) has already had one box-office success earlier this year with King’s Wrath, and is hoping for a second in the upcoming romantic comedy My Love My Bride with Shin Mina, which releases next week.

 
Kang Ye-won (The Huntresses) joins in one of the trends of the night, which was long white gowns. I don’t like the particular peekaboo cut of hers, which kind of looks like somebody took a sword to her front and left her flapping in the breeze. Beware of big gusts of wind!

 
Kim Hee-ae (Elegant Lie) also wears white (sort of—it may be champagne or silver up close, but it gives off an overall white-like impression) and looks crisp and polished. Does she ever NOT?

 
Aw, Yoon Kye-sang (Full Sun), rocking the classic tux, with just the perfect amount of stubble. Yum.

 
Honey Lee (Tazza 2) is here on the arm of Kim Nam-gil (The Pirates). He looks fantastic, even though the navy jacket and black pants count as some kind of fashion faux pas, perhaps. Her, on the other hand, I’m torn on. I love beaded gowns with wispy chiffon layers! And yet, hers looks a bit sloppy to me. Does anyone else want to rip off the sheer curtainy bottom portion, a la every spy caper comedy ever, making her dress short and sheath-like?


 
As with a number of gowns tonight, what really makes this work on Jung Yumi (Wonderful Mama, Mother’s Garden) is that back. (I just wish that didn’t mean that most of the times the fronts look a bit bland.)

 

How time flies. Who can recall when ten-year-old Kim Sae-ron (Manhole, Do-hee) broke out with Ajusshi and showed up at every awards show that season (1) on the arm of Won Bin, and/or (2) wearing an adorably complicated and amazing confection of a dress? (See: Exhibits A, B, C, D, and E. Well, she’s grown up and still knows how to rock a red carpet.

 
Speaking of former child stars, Go Ah-sung (Snowpiercer) has been making the transition to adulthood gracefully, both in her acting choices and her style sense. She’s got an eye for structured and chic pieces, like this white number here.

 

Well, I don’t exactly like this gown worn by Kim So-eun (Liar Game, Mourning Grave). She looks older than her 25 years, and not necessarily in a good way. But I like the concept of the red—especially in such a sea of black and white—and the hair and makeup are spot-on. Just… RIP, giant red doily. I’ll see you in hell.

 
Another lady in red: Similar in concept, but (imo) such a better version of it. I remember Hwang Geum-hee making the award-circuit rounds back when she was named Ji Sung-won and coming off the acclaimed thriller film Bedevilled, which gave her enough notice for her name to pop up here and there. She hasn’t done much since, with one film coming out quietly this year, An American Friend.

 
I would’ve expected more crossover between events, but Clara (Emergency Couple) is one of only a few to have made it to the red carpets for both the BIFF opening and the Korea Drama Awards. Her look seems rather severe—black hair, white dress, red lips—but perhaps she was going for a big contrast with her KDA appearance, from flirty to va-va-voom. Or maybe she was channeling vampire princess bride. (I’m pretty sure I saw that monster red pendant in Vampire Idol, ‘s all I’m sayin’.)

 
Is Jo Yeo-jung (The Target, Obsessed) wearing a nightie? Granted, it’s a very pretty nightie…

 
…but white nighties have a tendency to wash you out, as with Lee Jung-hyun (Roaring Currents)

 
Here’s Im Ji-yeon (Obsessed),and while I don’t have any complaints about the specific dress, after a while you see another lady in a vaguely bridal white gown and they all start blurring together.

 

Okay, I KNOW I’ve seen this dress a bunch of times before at various red carpets before. Which stylist keeps shopping it around? But then again, everyone always looks fantastic in it, so maybe it’s worth it? This one is worn by (Kim) Soo-hyun (Level 7 Civil Servant, The Avengers: Age of Ultron), who appears to have dropped her surname, probably so as not to confuse her with Mr. Star Man Alien himself.

 
No matter how many times I see them together on shows or at events, every time I see Sung Dong-il (It’s Okay, It’s Love) with his son Joonie, I have to awww. He even let him wear sneakers!

 
I’m used to seeing Song Il-kook (Entangled) looking sharper, but the rumply ajusshi look is strangely attractive on him. Okay, not strangely. Just attractive.

 
I’m sorry for laughing, but blame Sly and Single Again, after which point I can never see Kim Gyu-ri wearing a dress with a slit and not think of her completely unrealistic fake leg in it (and how she always brooded over her giant photo baring her formerly whole leg, only the picture highlighted the wrong leg). But yes, okay, also she looks great and her shoes are highly covetable.

 
You know, I don’t really like the front of this gown worn by Han Ye-ri (Haemoo)… but I think the back makes up for it. What can I say, I like shiny things.

 
Chun Woo-hee is shaping up to be an actress to keep an eye on, earning accolades for her performance in the small indie drama Han Gong-joo. Her black gown is simple, but elegant.

 
Jo Jae-hyun was kind of terrible in King’s Wrath, but by terrible I mean amazing, of course, in portraying the ghastliness of his character. Shudders.

 
In addition to black and white, there were a lot of beaded champagne-colored gowns, such as this one worn by Jo Min-soo (Venus Talk, Pieta). I love how confident she always is on the red carpet.

 
Do Ji-won (Gold Rainbow) wears something with a similar feel, and looks awesome.

 
It’s another similar concept for Gu Hye-sun (Angel Eyes)—beaded, long, lacy—but I do wish she’d wear things that suit her better.

 
Ki Tae-young is here with his Gangnam Blues co-star Kim Hee-jung, who I’m not sure picked the best gown for her. She’s only 22, but looks easily a decade older.

 
It’s shiny purple for Kim Jung-hoon, who’s slowly but steadily working his way back into the spotlight after a few years of being off the radar. He had a few dramas (Her Legend, I Need Romance), had a movie this year (Stray Dogs) and released a mini-album this summer.

 
Kim Hyang-gi (Elegant Lie, Wolf Boy) is so adorable. Her look hits just that right note of being dressy without going overboard.

 
Film industry (and red carpet) veteran Ahn Sung-ki (God’s Play, Top Star) kind of always looks the same, but in the best way—classic and timeless.

 
Aw, Choi Woo-shik (Fated To Love You), whose cheeks I always want to pinch. That tux looks a touch formal for the event, but I kinda think that just adds to his cute-little-bro appeal.

 
My Jang Hyun-sung (Secret Door), for a guy who’s carving out a niche as the perennial villain, you sure look happy. Please enjoy yourself and stop torturing poor innocent souls in dramaland, maybe? Yes? I’ll give you a cookie?

 
Okay, so maybe Lee Hyun-woo (Covertly, Grandly) is wearing a head-to-toe maroon suit, but damn if he doesn’t make it look fantastic. Our little boy’s all grown up. *Tear*

 
I just checked to see if Otani Ryohei (Joseon Gunman) was wearing the same tux he wore the night before at the Korea Drama Awards, because if I were a dude, that’s totally what I’d do and hope nobody noticed. Maybe wear a different bow tie or something. But nope, Ryohei is a professional and got a new suit like a proper celebrity, because he is not a lazy ass who never leaves the house.

 
Sexy ajusshi! I can’t help it; those are the first words that spring to mind every time I spy Park Sung-woong (King’s Wrath, High Heel) at a black-tie event. Man knows how to work a three-piece tux.

 
And here’s Sohn Hyun-joo (Three Days, Hide and Seek), another ajusshi favorite.

 
Love the shock of electric blue worn by Yeom Jung-ah (My Neighbor’s Wife), who can always be counted on to turn in a classy look (and performance).

 
Huh. Remember when Go Eun-ah cut her hair and dressed in baggy clothes to pass for a boy to be in an idol group for K-Pop Ultimate Survival? Yeah, looking at these photos I wouldn’t remember either. She is the farthest thing from tomboyish with this low-cut, form-fitting dress.

 
Um, no, Shin Hyun-bin (Mimi, Warrior Baek Dong-soo). No.

So these actors came to attend the opening ceremony? Will there be another one for handing out awards?

No worries. The bait of a film festival is photo ops galore, and the Busan Film Festival will not fail to oblige its star-studded guests and star-struck masses. If it doesn't, the stars will not return to it next year. The business model of a film festival is as simple as that. So every day and night, under many combinations and permutations, there will be red carpet events. So stay tuned.

This is the 16th festival in Busan. A more interesting issue involves its relevance. Isn't it about time that one of the Asian film festivals rises to the top league? But so far, neither Tokyo nor Hong Kong nor any city in Korea seems to be even close to cracking it.

Currently, only Sundance and Cannes really matter to the industry. All other film events in the world really are media/fan events. And Cannes is all about Hollywood. In short, the American domination is firm in filmed entertainment as well as hi-tech. Think Hollywood & Silicon Valley, despite occasional home-made blockbusters in local markets. While the emergence of Alibaba makes me dream of new world order in global e-commerce, nothing in Asian film industry stirs hopes of new future.

The one time I attended the Busan event as an invited guest, I found it impossible to navigate from one part of the festival to another. Though the festival provided its guests with an armada of limousine, Busan is basically like Bangkok. (Surely, you've heard about Bangkok drivers and the potty in their cars?) It can take a whole day to move from one part of the metropolis to another. So, most of us simply stayed in the same part, once taken there from our hotels. In emergency, take helicopters!

I agree the film festival does seem to cater more to the fans, but it's just as important a film festival. Many people of different countries come to show their films and meet different audiences. What's so bad about that? At least their films are being watched by other audiences and it's good promotion.

I feel sorry for the people who invited you to the film festival. It seems you might have been in the industry too long that now you just sound bitter. And Busan does have crazy drivers, but stop with the exaggeration. If it was so hard to get from one place to the other, you could've just gotten off your high horse and taken the subway. Between Haeundae and Nampo-dong, it only takes you 50 mins to 1 hr because of train transfers. Unless you were too scared to even challenge that. And compared to wherever you come from the public transportation in S. Korea is way more reliable.

Yeah. It's a variety show that follows around celeb dads watching their kids for 48+ hours. KBS World uploads the episodes subbed in Youtube. Other celeb dads in the show are rapper Tablo (of Epik High), MC Lee Hwijae, and UFC fighter Choo Sunghoon. Jang Hyunsung used to be part of the show until he and his two sons left because it was getting too hard for him to juggle the show and his dramas.

Song Ilkook has 2 1/2 year old triplets named Daehan, Minguk, and Manse, which basically translates as "Republic of Korea Hooray!" His triplets are the cutest creatures on earth.

I often think the white dresses look so bad on these actresses who are obsessed with having white skin. They look like ghosts.

I actually really like how Jo Yeo-jung looks, though. Her skin is practically glowing, and the (admittedly nightie-ish) dress has a soft vibe that matches that.

I liked Tang Wei's dress the most, loveee the colors and style. And I also liked the bright blue on Yeom Jung-ah, a welcome shot of color in the midst of the typical red carpet dresses.

Cha Ye-ryun and Yoo Ji-tae really pulled off the best looking combo look. She looks more alive and emotive here than she does in her dramas, ha.

The lacey dresses of Kim So-eun and Kim Hee-jung really made them look much older than they really are. Kim Hee-ae looks polished like always (and every time I see her now, I get reminded of the Kim Yeong-chul imitation of her Secret Love Affair bit!)

Uhm Jung-hwa pulls off the look off well of her usual black dresses, but I do like that she is tan -- she looks healthy and glowing, compared to the usual ghostly white paleness of others.

I completely agree that Honey Lee's dress should have gotten rid of that bottom half, because it just looks half-made with the sheerness. But why wasn't she together with bf Yoon Kye-sang, who was alone in the earlier pic?

Sung Dong-il and Joonie...my fave dad-son combo from Dad Where are We Going! And Song Il-gook doesn't look as sharp as usual, but can we blame him when he's raising his handful of cute triplet sons?? (I started watching Superman because of them)

Park Seo-joon and Park Sung-woong both can rock a suit and look so freakin' hot! Yum ;P

Last saw Kim Sae-ron and Kim Hyang-gi in Queen's Classroom...but wow. They really have grown up so much! They're growing out of their little girl faces.

After reading the comment about Kim Gyu-ri...now I can't see her without thinking about that fake leg anymore, haha thank you JB :P

1. I want to take a pair of scissors and do a good *snip snip* at all the long dresses of the night, as, to me, they all seemed SO. LONG. Too long, in fact T.T As in: over-sized...
But that's just my me lol

2. Who else had to do a double-take of Kim Nam Gil?? At first glance, I thought he was Ji Sung XD

3. Kim Sae Ron reminds me of HK actress Linda Chung... Maybe 'tis the styling of her hair? I don't know...

4. On the whites/silvers/bling-bling dresses of the night:
- I luff you , Kim Hee Ae unni/sunbaenim
-Go Ah Sung's dress is doing nothing for me T.T (Sorry, Javabeans!!!)
- I.... don't know what Clara was thinking, but I think her thought process MIGHT have gone something like this, "Hmmm, maybe if I do this look, then they'll revive "Vampire Prosecutor" for another season and cast me? Pretty please??"
- who gave the idea to Jo Yeo Jung and Lee Jung Hyun that wearing nighties to an awards show--or even out of the house, for that matter-- was a good thing? T.T
- Im Ji Yeon's white is washing her out =(
- I love (Kim) Soo Hyun's white look-- clean, crisp, elegant =)

5. Song Il Kook!! Ahhhhhhh!!!! Dae Han, Min Gook, Man Se!! Ahhhhhh!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 *ahem* Apologies... But anyone watching "Superman Is Back" would understand =)

6. On all the other color dresses of the evening:
- Kim So Eun, honey, that dress ages you by 10 T.T I'm also lookin' at you, Gu Hye Sun and Shin Hyun Bin =(
NO.

7. All things sparkly: I love thee =)))))) LOVE <3

Thank you so much for putting together this post! I read the whole thing.

Nothing really stood out to me in a good way except for Kim Hyang-gi's dress which is very cute and youthful but appropriate. Everyone else just looked well put together and classy (with one or two exceptions) but in a safe, kind of boring way. Loved seeing Sung Dong-il and Joonie though. That kid is the cutest!

Clara and Jo Yeo-Jung can do better though. Both dresses are ugly on their own and not doing great things for either of them.

If Tang Wei went to that red carpet linking arms with her mom then shes the coolest girl evaaa...!! I also liked her dress for being so edgy yet elegant!! idk if theres a need to be dressier for awards ceremonies and dressed down for festivals or viceversa but either way its always the same and it suffocates me when everyone wear plain black and white to every single event lol! Even when men wear the classic tux and black tie, I cant stand it lol wear a purple tie or something pleeeaaase!!!

Yay, pretty dresses and handsome men in formal attire! Thanks for letting me dress up vicariously (cause the last place I went that required that level of dress up was my own wedding.)

every time I see Sung Dong-il (It’s Okay, It’s Love) with his son Joonie, I have to awww. He even let him wear sneakers!

"Let" him wear sneakers? ::laughing:: I can tell you exactly the conversation at their house prior to the ceremony.

"Ok, Joonie, go get your dress shoes on."

"What the hell do you mean they don't fit anymore? We just bought them!"

"Well, we don't have time to go get a new pair, do we? This is something you should have mentioned to Mom last night! FINE, just wear your sneakers, we're running late!"

As a parent, I feel his pain.

YYS stopped me short. I don't think the Chilbongie character will ever be far from my thoughts when I see him. Which is a good thing. He's so good at being bad guys, he makes me forget the head-tilting, hamburger chomping, tear-dripping, bare shoulder-icing (sigh) pitcher pretty fast.

I know I am repeating myself, but ohshitLeeHyunwoo! We still have years of his youth to enjoy, it'll be pretty awesome to see him transform into one of those sweet-looking but dangerous lady-killers.

Ladies First: Kim Gyu-ri: gorgeous in navy velvet, but yeah i can't help but crack up now when I see her.
Go Ah-sung:so chic, my favorite white dress of the night.
Honey Lee and Tang Wei have the most fun dresses: elegant yet edgy; I also want that necklace now.

Men in Black(and other shades):
Park Sung-woong!! *melts* first noticed him in New World. Will be watching For the Emperor for him (Lee Minki who?!)
Lee Hyun-woo...I don't remember him looking this good; maroon suit? Slow clap.
Yoon Kye-sang just always makes me smile (or rather grin like a doofus) Didn't see it till the second time but the iris(?) was a nice touch.
I usually don't like navy suits but Park Seo-joon rocks it. He was the only new it boy of noona love that I really fell for(from park min woo and the other pretty (but) dumb flower boy from roommate..Kang something.) His facial expressions are daebak.
I love Jung Woo-sung, can't stand patterned jackets. but Jung Woo-sung > ugly jacket = <3

The younger actresses wore some dresses that made them look too much older!! Not age appropriate, and some of the older actresses' dresses were BORING...Nothing had a WOW factor. Very underwhelming. The last photo, ugh! You paid good money to look like a granny?

I actually really like Kim So Eun's dress, and I was so happy to see her wear red instead of the usual black and white. The color is definitely something out of her comfort zone, but I think it suits her really well.

My mom has only seen Kim Sae Ron in Can You Hear My Heart and she loved her in it. I am totally showing her these red carpet pics to blow her mind! I love her dress also, very cute.
