  • [Interview] Listening to Ku Hye-sun's music

    2015/06/17, Source
    Ku Hye-sun is out with her newest new age album called "Breath 2" for the first time in 6 years. But that's no surprise because Ku Hye-sun has been very busy as an actress, film director, hosting exhibitions and publishing novels. There have been people who looked at her with jaundiced eyes and the reasons being that she released mostly repertoires and her acting skills. However, her music is comfortable enough for anyone to hear. Listening to them with closed eyes releases a field of imaginations. Her music makes one liberal and so did the interview with her. The discussion was mainly her album and the talk of music soon became talk of people,...More
  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Gang Dong-won

    A desirable appearance and star appeal are things that feed one's popularity. For young male South Korean actors, the fastest way to fame is often through the female audience's hearts and the marketability they gain from them. However, this is not always as good as it sounds. Attractive stars usually have to work twice as hard for their acting to be seen above their looks and it does not always happen. Gang Dong-won has successfully gone from a simple heartthrob to someone valued for his talent,...More

  • [Guest Review] "Haunters"

    2011/10/15, Source
    Some things to know about my review: - My reviews are subjective and my opinions based on my own general likes and dislikes, unclouded by obsessions. - They usually don't have major or ending spoilers, but if they do, they will come with a warning. - If I like a movie enough to write about it, I write a lot about it. My reviews are huge. - I don't take myself too seriously so my reviews reflect that. It's light reading. A lot of it, but light. I have started with Gang Dong-won movies, using my newly acquired obsession for inspiration and since I like them a lot. Which is why you won't be seeing a review about "Temptation of Wolves", which was frankly god-awful,...More

  • Idol Groups to Have Showdowns in New Year

    2011/01/05, Source
    Group TVXQ Open year-round Idol groups are fighting fierce battles from the start of the new year by releasing new albums. Many idol groups including star idol groups such as TVXQ, Seungri from Big Bang, and JYJ, and newcomer groups such as MBLAQ, Secret, Dalmatian, Infinite, and Dalshabet will release new albums. Usually, singers do not release new albums in January and February after finishing their activities at the end of the last year, but this year will be different because star singers and new singers are all beginning to have showdowns from the beginning of the year. The team leader of the Music Business Department at Mnet Media said on January 2, "Singers tended to release new albums in September or October in the past, but recently they are actively performing all year round by releasing single albums and mini albums. Idol groups regardless of their popularity all think that they will be forgotten if they do not have activities, so they release new songs one after another without taking a long break",...More

  • [INTERVIEW] Gang Dong-won

    2009/12/28, Source
    Actor Kang Dong-won [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] It took some time to get used to talking with Gang Dong-won. And it is not because of his slow way of speech. Kang is one who will listen to a question, remain silent for a long time and give his answer just when you are about to ask another question because you thought he would not answer your previous question. He is an actor who will think over both the question and answer in his head thorougly, check how geniune his answer is and then speak. That is why we were able to experience 'sincerity' -- a value we thought existed only in letters -- from Kang who is the star of recent hit Korean film "WOOCHI" ("JEON WOO CHI : The Taoist Wizard"). 10: You had quit smoking when starting to film "M" -- have you taken it up again? Gang Dong-won (Kang): I failed (to quit). It's hard not to smoke while working on a film because you get stressed. And you also go out to drink a lot after shoots so I'd smoke once in a while when I do. I'm going to try quitting again next year. 10: You mentioned stress. Director Choi Dong-hoon used the word 'hell' to express what it was like on set of "WOOCHI". Kang: I think the rough time the actors and directors have on set is different though. I simply got bruised here and there because the action scenes in "JEON WOO CHI : The Taoist Wizard" is all about speed. There are a lot of scenes where I dash this way and that, fall or ram into places, get beaten up and run away. 10: Working with director Choi must have been very different from working with director Lee Myung-sae of your previous films the "Duelist" or "M". Kang: They have very different styles. They're both great at details but differ in their methods. Director Choi creates complex stories while director Lee goes with simple stories but uses a lot of detail in telling them. 10: This is also a commercial film in the traditional sense. Kang: But I thought "Duelist" was also a very commercial movie. In the midst of filming some people had told me it's becoming too much of an art film but I and director Lee had claimed that it was a commercial film. Both of us had misjudged entirely. (laugh) I can, however, confidently say that "JEON WOO CHI : The Taoist Wizard" is a commercial film.,...More
