Korean Movie Screened With English Subtitles

For lovers of good cinema, Korea has a wealth of local releases. Some are of the finest quality, showing innovation and moving cinema in a new direction as applauded by Chris Berry on a recent Discovery Channel program.

What had been a major problem for film lovers of all Korean cinema who do not speak Korean has been the frustrating wait until the films are released on DVD to watch them with subtitles. This scenario is now one of the past.

CINUS in Gangnam and Myeong-dong are to screen latest release Korean films with English subtitles.

One movie of note is "Mother - 2009", directed by Bong Joon-ho.

Bong is a South Korean film director and screenwriter who had a huge hit at the box office in 2003, with "Memories of Murder", a film loosly based on the true story of Koreas first recorded serial killings.

In "Mother - 2009", Hye-ja is a single mom to 27-year-old Do-joon. Her son is her raison d'etre. Though an adult in years, Do-joon is naive and dependent on his mother, and sometimes behaves in ways that are stupid or simply dangerous. He is a constant source of anxiety for everyone.

One day a young girl is found dead in an abandoned building and Do-joon is accused of her murder. An inefficient lawyer and an apathetic police force that closes Do-joon's case too quickly inspire his mother to act on her own ― to act as Mother in its purest form. Summoning all her maternal instincts and trusting no one, she sets out to find a killer and prove her son's innocence.

The film is screening at both cinemas.

Directions: CINUS Gangnam is located on the eighth floor of the Aara Tower in Seocho-dong. By subway: Take line 2 to Gangnam station (stop 222) and go to exit 5. There is the connecting passage to the theater building before you use the stairs to exit and use the elevator to the theatre on the eighth floor.

CINUS Myeong-dong is located on the 10th, 11th floor of Tabby 2 shopping mall in Chungmuro 2-ga. By subway: Take line 4 to Myeong-dong station (stop 424) and go out exit 6. Once you exit from the stairs turn left. There is an outside ticket booth for the theater on the corner. You can enter the store to access the elevators to the 10/11 floors.
