Synopsis
Ye-eun was born without eyeballs and abandoned by her blood parents because of her revolting appearance. It was a completely paralyzed father and a mother operating a social welfare facility who raised Ye-eun. She was thought to be a blind piano prodigy since she was found playing the piano by herself at the age of three even though she had never played it before. But she was not actually a prodigy. She had the confidence to enter piano competitions but failed again and again. After she lost self-confidence and quit playing a piano, her parents asked for professional help to encourage her. With that help, she tried to enter a contest again and finally won the prize. She was very pleased with her achievement in overcoming her physical disability and prejudice. This film tells the touching story of a disabled main character, Ye-eun and her mother who helps her faithfully and tirelessly.

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Piano"

    2015/10/17
    If you've ever watched a variety talk show or gone to a local festival, chances are you've seen a small child play a musical instrument with unimaginable talent. Ye-eun was one such little girl, and her case was a particularly inspiring one because Ye-eun lacks eyeballs. Key word there being "was". It's one thing to be a local talented child musician- to be a genuine prodigy, one who could play on the international level, well, Ye-eun hasn't reached that yet. And that's the subject matter of "The Piano"- a documentary about one of those kids you saw once in a revue format and then promptly forgot about,...More

    Lee Joon-ik's "The Throne" still reigns supreme… For the second week in a row, Lee Joon-ik's timely period piece "The Throne" has claimed the top spot by adding another 1.2 million admissions to its total tally. Lee's depiction of the cruel fate of Prince Sado entered the charts on the 16th, and, with the Chuseok weekend included, now stands at 3.5 million admissions ($23.9 million).

    "Ant-man" enjoys a second weekend at the top... For the second week in a row Marvel's "Ant-Man" topped the South Korea box office and has now moved its total tally to 2.3 million admissions ($16 million). Release in Korea on the third, "Ant-Man" continues the superhero trend by bringing international audiences another incredible character from the Marvel's inexhaustible universe of heroes. Last weekend the film opened in first by capturing over 45% of the box office pie, and week two for Marvel's mighty mini man saw it retain the top spot by claiming 40.8% of sales (695 thousand admissions). Although a foreign flick topped the weekend's list of top performers, the home team occupied positions two through sixth with a variety of compelling local features, some of which are still writing their names into the record books,...More

  • Kim Jung-eun's Movie Picks

    2010/04/21, Source
    Actress Kim Jeong-eun [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] "Ambition" is not the first word that pops into mind when one hears the name Kim Jung-eun. Despite the sensational debut she made as a queer patient with a shaved head in MBC TV series "Sunflowers", the image she has established as a star is the actress who is always cheerful and full of life. She was the short-tempered yet loveable, and slightly aggressive yet kind-hearted youngest daughter of the mafia in film "Marrying the Mafia" (2002). And after SBS drama "Lovers in Paris", the audience identified her with her character Tae-young which brought her much glory and fame yet also summed up her ten-year career with an image she said she "wanted to overcome". That is when she came across "Close to You", a film through which she could attain her desire. Kim Jung-eun became In-young who was no Cinderella and had no reason in her life to laugh out loud,...More
