Art and Culture

Now it's time to learn more about the latest art and culture events with our Michelle Kim. I hear she has brought us movies and something that she encourages us to actually perform for ourselves.

Hello Michelle

[Reporter : ] Hello Conn-young

What do you have for us today

[Reporter : ] To start us off today I have two movie updates with two very good looking actors. Two inspiring actors from Korea and the United States, Ryu Seung-ryong and Johnny Depp are coming back to the big screen to lure all the female fans.

Ryu Seung-ryong plays the Casanova that sends women head-over-heels in the film, 'Everything about my Wife'.

Unlike his previous charismatic roles, he makes a drastic change and plays the seemingly perfect yet awkward Casanova, Sung-ki .

He not only seduces the women in the movie but also audiences by showing off his masculinity as well as stimulating women's maternal instincts.

It will be interesting to see the change from Ryoo's previous movie roles into this awkward Casanova.

Ryu Seung-ryong, actor [Interview : Ryu Seung-ryong, Actor] "Sung-ki is a smart, rich, humorous, well-mannered, and charming Casanova".

Another Casanova from a different era is coming to theaters in the movie 'Dark Shadows'.

Barnabas is a famous Casanova living in the 18th century, who is cursed by a witch he was madly in love with.

He is buried alive and wakes up as a vampire after 200 years.

The pale face and dark shadows around the eyes of the Casanova vampire steal the spotlight with Johnny Depp playing the lead role.

His ongoing love for the witch allows him to go back and forth through time to portray the modern yet classic Casanova characteristics.

Ryu Seung-ryong and Johnny Depp look set to excite movie fans with their drastic change in roles.

[Reporter : ] The film, "Everything about my Wife" will be out in theaters on the 17th, which is Thursday of this week, and "Dark Shadows" is out in theaters so don't miss it!

I've always loved Johnny Depp as an actor. At first you always wonder why did he choose this role

[Reporter : ] That is very true. I loved him especially in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. He was everything I imagined Willy Wonka to be like. And also after I watched the "Arrow, The Ultimate Weapon", I fell in love with Ryu Seung-ryong's performance. It felt like his charisma radiated out of the screen.

I watched that movie too and his acting was impeccable. I'm very excited to see these two movies, especially now that I know the two actors are starring in each of them. And moving on, what else do you have for us[Reporter : ] Flash mobs are when groups of people start dancing or perform something together in public. Until now, we were used to seeing flash mobs of hip-hop and pop dance routines, but these days, flash mobs performing classical music is spreading all over the world. Take a look at this.

The sudden sound of a flute rings through a busy subway station in Copenhagen. The flute starts off with the melody of Peer Gynt 's Morning Mood and suddenly more people stand up with their instruments and add to the melody.

The members of The Denmark Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra were in the subway acting like passengers. As soon as one of the members started to play, the rest stood up and started playing along.

At first people were in shock, but after listening to the beautiful music, there were more smiles than confusion.

This flash mob was a surprise present from the Denmark Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra to the citizens of Copenhagen.

In the northern part of France, a man starts playing the drums at a train station.

The performance grows as more and more musicians gather and play the music of Bizet.

The performers and the audience are all having a good time.

Another flash mob takes place at a marketplace in Vancouver Canada. As a man starts singing a song from the opera "Rigoletto", people start to look in wonder. A mom holding a baby and a man walking through the shops all start singing along as well.

[Interview : Vancouver citizen] "When they came around and we heard, I guess it was Phillip singing
