Hollywood Adventure & Korean Romantic Movies

2007/12/21 | 897 views | Permalink | Source

Time now to check on the week's new movies.
From Hollywood comes a fantasy based on a bestselling novel and as for domestic fare we have a cheeky story about a very confident woman.
Here is Lee Jeewon.
We begin this week with "The Golden Compass", based on a bestselling and award-winning book of the same title.
The book is the first of author Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy set in an alternative world where people's souls appear as demons.
The epic story begins when a teenage girl named Lyra tries to rescue a friend kidnapped by a mysterious organization.
Newcomer Dakota Blue Richards stars as the main character playing alongside screen heavyweights, including Nicole Kidman.

Now if you're a fan of Han Yeseul you can't miss the next film "Miss Gold Digger".
Han plays Sin Misoo, a successful career woman with looks, skills and the determination to get any guy she wants.
Misoo can turn into just about any man's dream girl and she proves it by going out with four men at the same time.
Not surprisingly they all find out about her dating habits.

The last movie "My Love" on our list also benefits from star casting with actors including Kam Woo-sung, Choi Kang-hee and Uhm Tae-woong .
The movie comes from director Lee Han, who has directed several romantic movies namely "Lover's Concerto" and "Almost Love".
But the story of miracles happening to four couples in time for an eclipse may bear too much similarity with the British romantic comedy "Love Actually" for some moviegoers.
