  • [HanCinema's Film Review] Political Scapegoating and Posturing in Moon Hyeon-seong's "As One"

    Film: "As One" (aka "Korea") Director: Moon Hyeon-seong Stars: Ha Ji-won (Hyun Jung-hwa), Bae Doona (Lee Boon-hee), Choi Yoon-young (Choi Yeon-jeong), Han Ye-ri (Yoo Soon-bok), and Park Chul-min (Coach Lee) Review Score: 3 / 5 Also Try: "GLove" and "Perfect Game" Have no doubt about it that Moon Hyeon-seong's "As One" is a feel-good romp around a political pigsty that will have you cheering, crying, cringing and counting the minutes until it's all over.

    Sports film based on a true story hits North American theatres on June 1, 2012 CJ Entertainment brings "As One" (aka Korea, original title) to North American theatres this summer on June 1, 2012.  The film, based on a true story about the first ever united North and South Korean sports team, will be releasing in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Vancouver, Toronto, and Los Angeles (L.A. release on June 8, 2012).   A touching true story about the historic first Team Korea "As One" recounts the dramatic tale of the first unified Korean team that competed at the 1991 World Table Tennis Championships in Chiba, Japan. South Korea's ping-pong star Hyun Jung-hwa and North Korea's LI Bun-hee have each suffered humbling defeats at the hands of China's formidable "Ping-Pong Witch" every time they reach the tournament's final rounds.  Forced by politicians to suddenly team up as the first united team Korea, HYEON and LI experience only conflict and mistrust, and face the loss of their championship dreams.  But game-by-game, the two begin to build teamwork and find a budding friendship.  When political winds change again and just as suddenly an announcement is made to disband team Korea, the two young women must prove to their people and the world that teamwork can outshine the dark shadows of a painful history,...More
