As the jealous MR.YOO starts to snoop around Eun-sook and Suk-gyu's past, will their secret be kept, and will they get together again?

  • CJ Entertainment America Presents "Helpless"

    2012/04/10, Source
    Dark Horse Korean Hit at the Gate in the U.S. LOS ANGELES, CA (April 9, 2012) – CJ Entertainment America is launching the moody Korean thriller "Helpless" on April 20, 2012 as an exclusive engagement for Los Angeles at the CGV Cinemas, with national dates expected for early May. The film was a critical darling and unexpected box office champion for two consecutive weeks when it was released in Korea earlier this year. - Russell Edwards, Variety "...The film never ceases to compel. As the layers of deceit are peeled back, Byeon seems in complete command of her material. A key demonstration of her narrative dexterity is the way she flaunts an audacious 'Chinatown'-like clue to the missing woman's whereabouts without pre-empting the climax",...More

  • Ji Jin-hee's Movie Picks

    2010/02/24, Source
    Actor Ji Jin-hee [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia] For a long time on television, Ji Jin-hee wore the kind smile his character Min Jung-ho of smash hit TV series "Dae Jang Geum" wore. Even though Min was the only upright character he played. "Many people watched the show. And the TV commercials played a huge part too. I was wearing a suit in most of them, or were finance-related commercials so that image kept getting reinforced". That is why the path he took after "Dae Jang Geum" looked like his struggle to break free from Min. His advertiser complained because he ruined his image so much through the roles that followed -- as a hopeless libertine in drama "Miss Kim’s Adventures in Making a Million", a good-for-nothing cartoonist in film "Bewitching Attraction", an activist student out of prison in "The Old Garden", and a cruel hired killer in "Soo". It looked like he was attempting to scrub off his upright image completely but Ji's response revealed he was actually not too bothered. "I think having such an image is my strength since I can turn around people's expectations and make them surprised that I have different sides too".,...More
  • Ji Jin-hee: 'I Don't Regret a Thing'

    2010/02/10, Source
    In the beginning of the new film "Parallel Life", the image of character Kim Suk-hyun, who is the youngest chief prosecuting attorney in Korea, is fairly similar to actor Ji-Jin-hee's when it comes to integrity. On the one hand, Kim is a hard-headed attorney who absolutely believes in his judgments based on the available evidence, but on the other hand, he is an attentive and loving father when he spends time with his family. Ji has given viewers the impression of gentleness and integrity principally through the character Min Jung-ho in the drama "Dae Jang Geum", and as an exclusive model for a bank advertisement, though he has played diverse characters, including funny and charismatic ones, in TV dramas and movies up to now.,...More
  • Ji Jin-hee feels bad for making Ha Jung-woo murderer again

    2010/02/04, Source
    Actors Lee Jong-hyuk (left) and Ji Jin-hee of "Parallel Life" [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia] If your life was exactly the same as someone else's from the past, what would you do? Is it a blessing or a curse -- without having to ride a time machine back in time -- to be able to know what your future holds for you by looking at someone else's life? The film "Parallel Life" begins with an anecdote about U.S. presidents Lincoln and Kennedy. Like the two presidents who lived very similar lives but existed 100 years apart, character Kim Seok-hyun (played by Ji Jin-hee) -- who is the youngest person to be appointed chief prosecuting attorney -- becomes increasingly aware that he is caught up in the whirlwind of the parallel theory. Every circumstance surrounding him runs exactly the same as they did for judge Han Sang-joon, whose entire family was murdered thirty years ago, and hence begins the mind games of Kim Seok-hyun who tries to protect his family.,...More
