[HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2014.11.14 ~ 2014.11.16 2014/11/17 "Interstellar" absorbs nearly 80% of the box office pie…
Week two for Nolan's spacey success saw the breakthrough blockbuster add another 1.7M admissions to its Korean cause. "Interstellar" recently crossed the $300M mark internationally, $36M of which coming from Korean screens as it becomes the seventh highest grossing film of the year behind "Transformers: Age of Extinction" ($38M). Unfortunately this galactic stub-guzzler had little competition, and so absorbed over 76% of ticket sales from a greedy 1,410 screenings (close to triple its nearest rival),...More

Lee Sun-kyun says not pressured by new image in "Pasta" 2009/12/29, Source

[MBC] Briefly put, MBC TV series "Pasta" which premieres January 4, is about 'dating in the kitchen'. The romance between a boss who is divinely talented yet uses vulgar language while being disdainful to everyone and an employee who does not succumb to her boss' abusive treatment but rather bears with it to later succeed in both love and work, has been portrayed more than several times in various films and dramas. But the bar is raised higher when that story is depicted by actor Lee Sun-kyun, famous for playing mild-natured characters and actress Gong Hyo-jin who usually plays unique characters. A press conference was held on Monday attended by Lee who broke free from his past image by revealing his own style of acting in film "Paju" this year and Kong who has been expanding on her realm of acting through films such as "Blush and Crush' and "Sisters on the Road". Q: You've played a lot of characters with gentle personalities up till now. Weren't you pressured by having to change your image 180 degrees in "Pasta"?Lee Sun-kyun (Lee): I actually hadn't been pressured about having to change my image but I started thinking that maybe I should try something different because so many people started saying the same thing. The role Choi Hyun-wook that I played had a character different from the roles I had taken on in the past so I can't say that I wasn't worried or pressured but I believe that an actor expands on his realm of acting by taking on roles he is not used to, so it feels as if I'm taking on a good challenge. That's why I'm always screaming with happiness on set these days. (laugh),...More
