Han Suk Kyu and Kim Rae Won get praised. Prison gets divided reviews.






[+1585, -520] (1/10) It's like having two top players like Messi and Ronaldo but with no goals. That's the kind of movie it is. 

[+886, -230] (5/10) I dreamed in vain...

[+476, -155] (10/10) Since the score is low I gave it a 10... but honestly it's 8.5 for me... Entertaining movie, Han Suk Kyu and Kim Rae Won didn't disappoint.

[+316, -92] (10/10) It's been really entertaining. Seeing the whole thing was such a thrill ! 

[+233, -57] (9/10) It's quite a brutal movie and the ending is lacking but the development and material are good. Most individual performances are really good but Han Suk Kyu and Kim Rae Won are something else!

[+1331, -489] (1/10) I only trust Han Suk Kyu and I saw his last battle with Kim Rae Won at the watch tower.. oh my goodness... there's nothing i can remember except screaming... It's a waste of money. Is this the best you could do with such good actors? 

[+871, -431] (1/10) Prisoners ruling the prison? I give you one point because it's too unrealistic 

[+629, -224] (10/10) As expected from Han Suk Kyu, his acting powers really deliver 

[+510, -178] (1/10) Except for the acting, it's so vain and boring. I had my phone in my hands the whole time.

[+546, -216] (10/10) Been a long time since I saw a well made Korean movie. I had so much fun. Han Suk Kyu and Kim Rae Won were the best.

[+520, -223] (10/10) It's a movie that made me think twice about people in power...

[+464, -159] (1/10) Why is there no zero rating or negative score option? 

[+372, -126] (10/10) I think this is the most fun movie I've ever seen 

[+566, -179] (1/10) If you're a fan of the actors you might as well check it out... 

[+441, -203] (4/10) I watched it yesterday. It wasn't fun and left no impression on me. I have nothing to say except acknowledge the acting powers of Han Suk Kyu and Kim Rae Won

[+376, -140] (10/10) Was so cool. I enjoyed it!

[+373, -151] (3/10) Time was passing too slowly when I watched this movie...

[+310,-124] (8/10) I rediscovered Han Suk Kyu, he really got me immersed in the role

[+270,- 128] (10/10) Han Suk Kyu's performance was the best! And Kim Rae Won's was like watching Sunflower all over again! 

[+364, -161] (1/10) Like experiencing two hours of prison then coming out... damn. 

[+183, -60] (10/10) Han Suk Kyu's charisma is something else. And Kim Rae Won has great chemistry with him! 

[+83, -8] (10/10) As expected from Korea's top actors Han Suk Kyu and Kim Rae Won! Everyone acted so well and I enjoyed it. It was really fun!

Netizen protest the choice of Jung Eun Chae as judge of Jeonju International Film Festival



Ha Ji Won and Jung Eun Chae were chosen to figure amongst the judges of the 18th Jeonju International Film Festival


[+2069, -82] Okay for Ha Ji Won but why Jung Eun Chae ?

[+1265, -57] Why is Jung Eun Chae there?

[+1033, -60] Jung Eun Chae is really a strange actress...

[+1049, -78] Jung Eun Chae??? Is she now on the level of Ha Ji Won? Are you serious?

[+567, -23] What??

[+309, -13] I know Jung Eun Chae did a lot of short movies but is her acting enough to be a judge? And she had that one article about an affair with a married man

[+301, -17] Jung Eun Chae is an actress who had an affair ㅋㅋㅋㅋShe's exactly like Kim Min Hee, she starred in a Hong Sang Soo movie then went and had an affair with a married man

[+245, -11] Who is behind Jung Eun Chae? She is a Judge? This is not funny... that Japanese actor....

[+193, -7] When I look at Jung Eun Chae, I remember the Japanese actor



Netizen react negatively to Yoon Eun Hye appearing again in a Korean Magazine








[+5639, -118] So now you're trying to work in Korea because of Thaad?

[+4506, -123]ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋTraitor surrounded by plagiarism

[+4129, -151] Just look at this opportunist

[+3219, -115] Too late to apologize, you're done forever

[+1247, -39] Although I hate Yoon Eun Hye, I hate the photographer and Marie Claire even more for shooting this

[+1203, -36] Is your activity in China blocked? You're the one who didn't care about Korean public opinion and made your way to Chinese broadcasting

[+957, -31] Didn't you want to live in China

[+942, 32] Thaad is though on you, isn't it? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[+900, -31] Are you sad that Thaad is still ongoing and you were a b*tch to your domestic fans? Don't worry, you collected astronomical amounts of money already, you don't have to be a celebrity. People at the Republic of Korea are not going to be sad because you're not on TV.

[+839, -26] So just like that, you want to come back?

[+831, -34] You've been quiet for a while, now why are you coming back from China just because of Thaad?

[+825, -43] She's back, probably has a sponsor

[+723, -23] You still have designers that want to sponsor your costumes? Who would want to take pictures of someone who plagiarizes their work... I think it's still a sensitive issue within the fashion industry

[+666, -27] Slowly crawling backㅋㅋㅋ

[+642, -21] Can't work in China so coming back to Korea?

[+657, -27] (derogatory word for chinese) plagiarist

[+410, -14] I curse the reporter who actually wrote this article

tvN "Chicago Typewriter" release their poster







[+1384, -174] Looks like a movie poster ....ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Is it really a drama

[+1127, -175] Drama looks very unique

[+828, -177] It won't be a simple romance, will it?

[+616, -140] Looks like a movie poster really, this drama will be as fun as a movie

[+294, -47] It's from the Kill Me Heal Me writer! I'm looking forward to it!

[+156, -35] I'm also looking forward to the OST, Looks like the same music director as Goblin. Han Se Joo's Yoo Ah In fighting!

[+48, -9] Woah, so cool  

[+46, -9] Poster looks so cool. I wanna check out this drama

[+30, -4] I want to see Han Se Joo asap! (Yoo Ah In's character)

"The Prison" surpasses 1 million views in 4 days









[+1521, -128] I saw the movie yesterday. The content was really fresh and the actors were so good. However I was disappointed with the predictable ending. Aside from that, it was overall interesting.

[+1064, -116] It's similar to Asura but the actors are really good

[+896, -106] Be sure to go and watch it

[+703, -100] Prison <3

[+554, -97] On my way to see it with my family, it will be fun

[+131, -11] Jo Jae Yoon is in this too? Is he a prison style movie specialist?

[+161, -22] The actors were all good. Especially the main two actors, they're a guarantee for a great performance. However there was no reason given for Han Suk Kyu's character as to why is he a bad person... and the story is a bit obvious

[+113, -15] There's a lot of content... but why did Han Suk Kyu's character turn out the way he is? I didn't understand why... I think it was different in the Director's Cut.

[+50, -4] I was sad they didn't give a character story to Han Suk Kyu's role



Park Chan Wook awarded in Florence for his contribution to arts and culture








Park Chan Wook has been awarded "Chiave della Città" from the Florence mayor on the night of the 25th. It is a prize given by the city of Florence, which is the home of the Renaissance, to an artist that has accomplished an outstanding achievement in the field of arts and culture. Previously tenor Luciano Pavarotti has won it, Park Chan Wook is the first Korean to receive that honor.

[+544, -12] Korean directors getting awards from abroad is a reason to celebrate

[+417, -9] He seems to be the only world class director representing Korea

[+316, -11] Congratulations to Park Chan Wook. I've seen the Vengance Trilogy more than once. I'm a huge fan of Park Chan Wook.

[+328, -18] For people of his generation, I like that he keeps himself open and keeps refreshing his work

[+46, -5] He's a good person and his movies are good. Hurry up with your next work please!

[+25, -1] A masterpiece of the Republic of Korea recognized by the world

[+33, -5] Congratulations Park Chan Wook. I would like to keep watching your movies for a long time in the future. Always be healthy and happy!

[+33, -6] The level of treatment of artists in Korea is very poor. I am truly embarrassed.

Synopsis and first reactions to "Yoon Restaurant''








It all begun in Youn Yuh Jung's 50th anniversary where Na PD decided to cast the three for his next variety show. They received training in cooking, managing a restaurant before hand. When they arrived in Bali, Youn Yuh Jung worried that it was too big while Lee Seo Jin got really excited at the idea of making drinks and immediately started with a pineapple juice. The day before the restaurant opened, the three made trial meals and tasted them. When the restaurant first opened, the first guest was a tourist from Denmark.... but he ordered a drink. Then two women came in.

[+1780, -49] As expected from genius Na PD. Youn Yuh Jung is aging gracefully, Jung Yumi is so pretty and Lee Seo Jin is so manly. Shin Goo soensaengnim is so cute

[+1560, -45] Really so much fun... When they finally opened the shop, I got so worried

[+1203, -41] Jung Yumi is so enthusiastic about everything

[+1114, -50] Jung Yumi is so smart and kind... It's nice to have a teacher as lovely as Youn Yuh Jung as well

[+1074, -44] The members combination is really good... Yum-vely + Teacher Youn Yuh Jung + Lee Seo Jin... Great chemistry

[+421, -29] If you look at the program you will feel at ease, it's something between a documentary and variety... the members don't even try hard to make you laugh, it's Na PD's camera work and observations that make it so fun.

[+366, -13] The audience rating is rising... It's a new style of variety

[+356, -17] Na PD is a genius, he takes a lot of shots from the background... Another fun aspect... I want to eat Bulgogi too now... You could put ramyun or kimchi fried rice on the menu too

[+313, -13] It was so unexpectedly sweet... Felt like getting a guest for the first time in your living room


Movie "The Prison" takes over 1st place in the Box Office





Article via Naver 

[+641, -36] As expected from acting genius Han Suk Kyu 

[+570, -57] Of course it did.... Koreans love gangster movies ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[+366, -45] I wish the movie was a bit better...ㅜㅠ It was just okay

[+311, -32] A collab between God Suk Kyu and Tae Shik from Sunflower (Kim Rae Won)

[+251, -43] That spoon scene was daebak

[+126, -14] Koreans are always up for a gangster movieㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[+94, -5] Features of Korean box office hits: Satoori, swearing, criminals

[+30, -4] Please stop with gangster, corruption and thriller movies... They already take 70% of market share. We must abolish this screen quota 

Netizen react to Lee Byung Hun signing with United Talent Agency for more Hollywood activities






Article via Naver

Lee Byung Hun was previously with CAA. He joins the agency that also features Angelina Jolie, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum and Benedict Cumberbatch 

[+4087, -109] Woah seriously.... Scary

[+3558, -147] Woah... he's really big..... a successful person really

[+3493, -352] Too bad about his personal life 

[+2469 -187] I hope you'll give back to your wife and disappointed fans with great performances

[+2071, -224] If only it wasn't for his personal life...

[+826, -44] When asked if Dokdo was part of Japan, Bae Yong Joon avoided giving a reply, Lee Byung Hun said of course it belongs to Korea

[+639, -29] Probably the closest Korean actor to a Hollywood career

[+552, -24] Nowadays there are many works that aren't attractive... Some actors just parade as advertisements. A least, Lee Byung Hun's approach to acting is different. Whether it's a box office hit ot not, he is building a prolific career

[+499, -23] He starts shooting immediately after finishing his previous work. An acting machine... seriously

[+466, -42] Seriously so daebak... Let's see if he can be reborn as an Asian lead in Hollywood. Are there any Asians in the Avengers? Lee Byung Hun would totally pull it off

Release of "300 billion won" movie -With God- pushed back till December...







Based on a popular webtoon, the highly anticipated movie was supposed to be released this summer but the unprecedented extensive CGI work has made it impossible to be ready in time for a summer release, thus the first part of the movie will release in December, the second part will release next summer. 

Lotte's strategy is to take advantage of both the coveted winter and summer markets. The gap between the two parts will only be six months, adding more pressure to the production team to have all the special effects ready in time.

[+1977, -24] At least I hope they don't damage the original story. It's such a good piece of work.

[+1056, -43] 300 billion won... where did they use all that

[+808, -21] The actors are good and the content is good. Now it all depends on what the director does of it

[+653, -29] The Korean Harry Potter, let's see how they pull it off

[+68, -4] The original webtoon is the best but the actors are good too... please give us a masterpiece

- Even if he's funny... It'd feel too much like Running Man

- People these days aren't doing well on Running Man...

- He's really funny though

- in Mudo, it seems that anyone over 30 years old seems to fit in. Conversation flows well.

- He's funny but he has too much of that Running Man feel

- The Running Man of MBC

Very good (early) reviews of moviegoers for "Ordinary Person"

Hong Sang Soo's wife reiterated to MBC: "I will not divorce him"







"My husband is like a puppy in love with Kim Min Hee... We have lived so well for 30 years, so many memories, I cannot end it."

Hong Sang Soo doesn't spend any money on his wife and daughter. MBC production team confirmed the shop where his wife now has to work.

[+12540, -712] Hong Sang Soo and Kim Min Hee really have to receive some divine punishment

[+10158, -434] HSS, You said only some people were looking at you badly, right? Don't be mistaken... The majority think of you two as filthy

[+8805, -329] Please go away. I don't want to read about these two

[+8243, -333] Sigh... Hang Song Soo is not a decent human being, why should he be happy

[+5069, -148] No matter how much you like young women, how can you do this  to your wife who was with you for decades... Before being a man, you're a human... The betrayal here is no joke

[+2900, -64] Why don't you give them living expenses?????????

[+2759, -149] Kim Min Hee would have never taken care of a mother in law with dementia...She just wants the right to love without any sense of duty

[+2320, -79] This is so scary...That a man who for 30 years stayed in his house, could turn around like this

[+2163, -47] What would you learn from Hong Sang Soo? If I was a student in that university I would petition against him... What can you possibly learn from people like Hong Sang Soo? (Hong Sang Soo teaches at a university)

[+2224, -81] Kim Min Hee, you'll be forty soon... then your dirty mind will understand it... I hope you live a miserable life

Why does Na PD love Lee Seo Jin so much. 5 years in variety together.

[+202, -14] Lee Seo Jin always complains but he's a warm person ㅋㅋㅋ

Lee Gook Ju gets criticized for her sexual harassment controversies by an actor








Controversy broke out when Lee Gook Ju responded to hateful comments about her kiss with Sleepy on the latest broadcast of "We Got Married". One user called her out for double standards and netizen found out he is an actor, his reply to her received more than 11k likes on Facebook. 

Actor Eun Shi Woo to Lee Gook Ju: "You are offended by one bad comment? What about all the male celebrities you molested in public, you already have ten cases of sexual harrasment, aren't you ashamed of yourself?"



For context, Lee Gook Ju has been in sexual harrasment controversies multiple times (forcibly kissing celebs, grabbing butts, etc) and has also put down a lot of female celebs about their slim figure or use of plastic surgery. She either never apologized or brushed it off as "comedy" or "in the script". So the public sentiment is very much against her.

[+11169, -1233] Lee Gook Ju sshi, you don't have the right to use your appearance as a shield, you say you get discriminated againt because of your appearance so you indulge in these acts. There's no moral standard just for you alone

[+8328, -683] Lee Gook Ju has been criticized before for sexual harrasment, in SBS Ent Daesang, singer Kim Jong Kook asked not to be kissed but she did it, on SBS again she grabbed Jo Jung Chi's butt. She never really adressed the controversies and only said "it was on the script"

[+10382, -1392] How bad must he have felt... it's not easy to be this direct. I don't want to defend Lee Gook Ju either

[+7453, -1113] Good riddance

[+2872, -250] It's true that it backfired on her but Lee Gook Ju should start listening to what needed to be said.

[+2348, -156] Both her actions and the hate comments she received should be punished

[+2276, -168] He got his name out there with just one commentㅋㅋ... Great PR moveㅋㅋ

[+2130, -189] If someone touched a female entertainer, would he have gotten away with saying ''it was in the script"?

[+1986, -207] If Lee Gook Ju sexually harrassed those celebs, she should get punished. But receiving hate for her appearance and age is a line you shouldn't cross either
