Seasonal Movies Come to Screen

The winter holiday season is here, with decorative lights warming up the nippy evenings and carol tunes flowing out from record shops ― and of course, colorful movie posters adorning the faces of movie theaters. Here are several films to complete the year-end celebration.

"My Love"

Popular actors convene in this warm drama, which pieces together different love stories in the tradition of "Love Actually".

Subway engineer Se-jin (Kam Woo-sung) is madly in love with his free-spirited and spontaneous girlfriend, Ju-won (Choi Kang-hee), but his deep affection for her makes him feel increasingly insecure.

College student So-hyeon (Lee Yeon-hee) makes a big move on her love interest Ji-wu (Jung Il-woo), by asking him to teach her the art of drinking.

Su-jeong (Im Jung-eun) is constantly rejected by Jeong-seok, a copywriter and widowed dad. But despite the damage to her pride, she perseveres.

Tree-hugging activist Jin-man (Uhm Tae-woong) returns home after six years to find his ex-girlfriend, though chances are slim. In theaters Dec. 18.


"Hansel and Gretel"

A young man gets lost in the woods but finds himself in a beautiful house with three adorable children. With a warm fireplace and plenty to eat, the place seems too perfect to be true ― and impossible to exit.

"Hansel and Gretel" gives a harrowing twist to the classic story by the Grimm brothers. In this homegrown thriller, the abandoned children from the traditional tale become empowered with the ability to manifest their imaginations, and begin their revenge against the world.

"Christmas is a merry occasion for most people, but it probably makes the less fortunate feel even more lonely and marginalized", said pre-teen actor Eun Won-jae in a recent press event. The film translates messages about child abuse and the like as it explores the dark depths of limitless imagination. In theaters Dec. 27.
