The Flu (S. Korea): Movie Review


The Flu, I think, can be compared to the best disaster movies I’ve seen. Sure, its small scale in terms of location since it only covers a city with a half a million population, but because of the area’s proximity to the the capital city of Seoul, the sense of urgency automatically magnifies ten-fold.

Age of Innocence aka Empire of Lust – Teaser 1 and poster


Ok I’m very excited! This movie is looking very good already. On the first teaser we can see the characters played by Shin Ha Kyun, Jang Hyuk and Kang Ha Neul.

I love that Lee Bang Won already has a completely different energy in relation to other JH characters.

Let’s hope the best for this movie will premiere on March.

Rabbit and Lizard (Maybe) Korean Movie Review


A great review of Rabbit and Lizard aka Maybe by Zhaoul

Some people really like a fast paced movie with an intricate plot line and complex character development. Well, if that’s what you are looking for, turn around and run away. This movie is not like that, but that doesn’t mean I think you should dismiss it. If you can enjoy a movie with an independent feel which focuses more on the simple moments, this movie may pique your interest.

Synopsis: May (played by Sung Yu Ri) returns to Korea after 23 years to try and find her birth parents. The only clue she has to her past is the large scar on the back of her shoulder which looks like a lizard. Eunsol (played by Jang Hyuk) is a taxi driver who has little time left to live. He is suffering from a rare disease. Both characters are searching for something. They also share a connection in which they are unaware of.

There’s limited dialogue at times. This allows the viewer to zone in on the…

Thorn/Innocent Thing: Stream of Consciousness Review


This is what I wrote on DC Jang Hyuk gallery after watching the movie, and I just translated it. It contains a lot of spoilers, and assumes readers have watched the movie. Junki=Jang Hyuk character, YoungEun=high school girl, SeoYeon=Junki’s wife.

Thorn aka Innocent Thing – Thoughts on Junki and gifs


Hi! I’m going to repost something I wrote on the comments section (my laziness has reached new levels!) in an attempt to give you some insight on Jang Hyuk’s character (and in order to introduce the gifs I made and conceal the fact that they are absolutely random haha)

THE JUNKI I SEE 

Junki was mostly bored and or repressed by his life and that’s how we see him in almost every scene. Even when he is watching soccer he has a “meh” expression, until he starts remembering Young Eun. However when he is smoking, drinking, playing rugby or making love, he comes alive as if he is releasing all that repressed energy.

He has a competitive streak that is hinted at when he is challenged by Young Eun when he couldn’t hit her with the ball. And there is his love for sports. Also I read he had been a succesful athlete. So he has all this inside of him yearning to get out. He may be also going through a midlife crisis and the anxiety that he will be a father soon and therefore will have to give up on his “youthful” dreams and do his “duty”? When he smokes you can see him suck on that cigarette with such need (it makes it seem really desirable and I am totally against smoking) Then again, this P.E teacher makes everything that is “wrong” feel desirable.

IN SUMMARY: Junki sees in Young Eun a way to escape his suffocating life, a way to release his suppressed energy and also, a way to hold on to his youth. All of this until she begins suffocating him as well…
