I was browsing the site and randomly found that there is a Korean Film Festival going on this year! (2nd year as Luna Film had started this event last year though. =/)
I suppose they are going to set it as a yearly event where they would bring in a few of the local “HIT” movies over to share with the locals.
This year’s theme would be ‘Romantic Korea‘.
And the 4 movies that would be screening are :
1) Architecture 101 – 건축학개론 (2012 movie)
The film tells the story of two students who meet in an introductory architecture class and fall in love. The story unfolds 15 years later, after the girl tracks down her first love to seek his help in building her dream house. continue to read here. (extract from wiki)
2) Sunny(써니) (2011 film)
Sunny is a South Korean film about a middle-aged woman who tries to fulfill her friend’s dying wish of reuniting their group of high school friends. The film alternates between two timelines: the present day where the women are middle-aged, and the 1980s when they were in high school. continue to read here. (extract from wiki)
Any familiar face?
Yes, I saw Kang Sora in it..
This is one of the movie that she acted and get awarded if I’m not wrong.
3) Couples 커플즈 (2011 movie)
This is a comedy movie though. (read it here)
4) My Secret Partner (2011)
A screenplay writer Jun-seok and a famed chef Hee-sook, each of them starts having sex with their own students, respectively with Yeon-hui and Min-soo on purpose for inspiration! Each of their wild and secret relationship surprisingly gives continuous inspiration to them. These two couples try to be physically affectionate even in public areas to draw more inspiration. While all Jun-seok needs from the relationship is finish his screenplay to make his splendid comeback, all his student-turned-secret lover Yeon-hui desperately wants is win a prize at the screenplay competition. Also, while Hee-sook tries to get in her second prime, her young lover Min-soo works to develop his great recipes. Will their controversial relationships indeed fulfill their needs?
Eh..I think the last show would be a M18 show? LOLS!
