Darcy Paquet shares his experience of translating Korean films into English, "I Saw the Devil" gets reviewed on Movie Pilot, KOBIZ has an infographic detailing the top superhero films released in Korea, and find out if Na Jong-jin's latest thriller ("The Wailing") hits the mark.

"'Translating subtitles is like translating poetry'"

This is a great piece from the Korea Times by Park Jin-hai in which Darcy Paquet, an American film critic who has translated a great number of Korean films and has for years supported Korea's film industry, shares his thoughts about the process of translating Korean films into English for international viewers.

"The Avengers: Age of Ultron", "Iron Man 3", "Captain America: Civil War" and other blockbusters have banked big bucks in Korea, but which films have performed the best? And just how many tickets are we talking about here?


"'The Wailing' is the most unsettling Korean horror film in years, but it offers more chills than answers"

Aja Romano, writing for Vox, reviews Na Hong-jin's latest thriller, "The Wailing". Na Jong-jin was the storyteller responsible for such hits as "The Chaser" and "The Yellow Sea", but how does his new film stack up? "Ultimately, Na's superb direction, sleek cinematography, and sense of visuals only make the occult aspects of this film feel more raw - but they also leave us with no firm grasp on what to believe..."
