Daekyung DVD World of Silence (VCD) (Korea Version) at 14.99 USD from YesAsia
Daekyung DVD World of Silence (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Up-and-coming director Jo Eui Seok, who made a strong impression five years ago with debut feature Make It Big, breaks his silence with his sophomore film, the crime thriller World of Silence (a.k.a. Missing Girl). Beautifully shot and tightly told, the suspenseful story pulls the viewer into a dangerous mind game between the police and a serial murderer. Lead Kim Sang Kyung is no stranger to crime drama, having portrayed a detective in the acclaimed Memories of Murder, but this time his mysterious character falls on the other side of the case. Park Yong Woo, fresh off the success of My Scary Girl, stars as a police officer who must race against the clock to save a young girl's life. The tense chemistry between the two men drives the film as the plot builds up to its gripping conclusion.

When three young girls from the same orphanage turn up dead, weathered detective Kim (Park Yong Woo) realizes he has a serial murder case in his hands. One of the suspects on his list is Ryu Jung Ho (Kim Sang Kyung), a troubled photographer who has the mysterious ability to read minds. Having just returned to Korea from the US, Jung Ho becomes the guardian to a young girl, Su Yeon (Han Bo Hae), whose mother is in a coma. Is Jung Ho protecting the girl, or is she the next potential victim? As Kim digs deeper into the case, the situation reaches a crisis point when Su Yeon goes missing.

Daekyung DVD Romantic Warriors
S$ 21.30
Since the start of its production, Crazy Assassins (a.k.a. Romantic Warriors) was put under the microscope since director Yoon Jae Gyun had already gained monumental success from his two previous mega blockbusters My Boss My Hero and Sex Is Zero. The press had a field day speculating whether Crazy Assassins would put an end to leading actor Kim Min Jong's infamous losing streak at the boxoffice. Yoon courts a slew of stars like Kim Min Jong ( The Windmill Palm Grove), Choi Sung Kook (Master Kims), Jin Jae Young (Sex Is Zero), and Shin Yi (Oh My God) for his first period action comedy. Behind its hilarious premise lies multiple layers of slapstick humor and belly-clinching action sequences, making Crazy Assassins, one silly charmer from beginning to end.

During the Joseon era, there exists a group of merciless assassins who will kill anyone upon request given the right price. Or so people thought. The truth is that these assassins are a bunch of dimwits who have messed up just about every little job they've had in hand. One night, after getting lost in the woods while dragging their hostage around, the assassins decide to spend the night at a nearby house which turns out to be a haunted house swarming with virgin ghosts! Nonchalantly, the assassins gulp down the wine they find inside the house - a huge mistake as this is no ordinary wine, but a precious collection of the virgin ghosts' 999 teardrops, only one drop short of transporting them over to the next life. Realizing now that the only way to make the crossover is to avenge those who have wronged them in the first place, the virgin ghosts threaten the so-called assassins to take on the task. But the boys are in for a surprise when they find out who they have to kill.

Daekyung DVD Mr. Wacky (VCD) (Korean Version)
S$ 21.30
Mr. Wacky is a comedy from first-time director Kim Dong Uk. Park Gun Hyung, star of Innocent Steps, plays Ju Ho, a layabout playboy who spends his life chasing girls and staying out late. His grandfather scolds him for living life so carelessly, and sends him off to work. But he doesn't send him far. Ju Ho's grandfather runs a high school and so gives his wayward grandson the position of mathematics teacher.

It looks like it is going to take more than this to sort out Ju Ho's life. The school is not exactly Ivy League - there are mounting disciplinary problems with the students, the staff are only interested in their paychecks and the police have received reports of corporal punishment! However, a young female teacher, Yoon So Ju (Kim Hyo Jin from Everybody Has Secrets), takes it upon herself to give Ju Ho some much needed guidance.

Daekyung DVD Three Fellas (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Director Jo Bum Gu might not be a big name (yet), but he had earlier raised eyebrows in the industry for his little known debut, The Bad Utterances, a low-budget affair which expertly mixed action, comedy, and coming-of-age tropes. Three Fellas is a bigger and better version of his debut film with one very important detail: this time it's Jung Doo Hong (The City of Violence) behind the wheel for action! Throw in singer MC Mong (in his film debut), former musical actor Park Gun Hyung (Innocent Steps), and a couple of gangsters, and we have a winning cinema experience.

Back in the day, Jung Kwon (Park Gun Hyung) and his two buddies Sung Hyun (Lee Cheon Hee of The Aggressives) and Kyung Ro (MC Mong) were renowned around the riverbank behind school as the "No Touch Gang". Kyung Ro's mouth was scarier than his fists and Sung Hyun lacked experience in fighting despite trying really hard, but Jung Kwon had the charisma and superb fighting skills. As the years pass, things change for them all. Work, family, and life get in the way, and even the riverbank is changing. Now it's not just fights between students anymore; organized crime is starting to make a mark in the area. Will the trio be able to go back to their glory days of youth?

Daekyung DVD Someone Behind You (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Korean comics (or "manhwa") have recently been inspiration for many films, such as the blockbuster hits Tazza and 200 Pounds Beauty. Now director Oh Ki Hwan (The Art Of Seduction) hops on the comics-to-film bandwagon with Someone Behind You. The film is based on a best-selling comic book titled "Two People", which tells of an old family curse marking one person dead at the hands of two people in every generation. Created by popular science-fiction comic artist Kang Kyung Ok, the original comic version has received critical acclaim from media and comic art fans. Staying true to its genre, Someone Behind You provides a bloodbath of horror using familiar scare tactics like gory visuals and chilling audio effects. Combining Oh's understanding of mainstream trends and Kang's meticulously devised, twist-laden plot, this creepy screamer is a horror-thriller like no other.

After witnessing the murder of her eldest aunt by her youngest aunt, Ka In (Yoon Jin Suh, A Day For An Affair) encounters a series of deadly, unexplainable occurrences in her life. Her classmate attacks her without warning, and her fencing teacher and even her own mother attempt to kill her. Meanwhile, watching Ka In's paranoia is Suk Min (Park Ki Woong, My Tutor Friend 2), a mysterious boy rumored to have murdered his own father. No stranger to dark deeds, Suk Min teaches Ka In that the only way to survive the coming horrors is to trust no one. Not knowing who to turn to for help, and not trusting her own boyfriend Hyun Joong (Lee Ki Woo, Sad Movie), Ka In searches desperately for clues, finally learning of the bizarre family curse that has marked her dead. Now all she needs to do is identify the killers. But who are they?

Daekyung DVD Humming (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Sadly, it is often when we lose our loved ones that we suddenly realize the meaning they bring to our lives. Shedding light into the very matter, director Park Dae Young (Love Wind Love Song) presents Humming, a touching storybook romance about a man who loses the love of his life in a tragic accident, but is miraculously given one last chance to mend all his mistakes before letting her go once and for all. Invited to the 11th Shanghai International Film Festival, the film features Lee Cheon Hee who made a striking performance as the sympathetic cop in the Kim Ki Duk-produced psychological drama Beautiful. In Humming, he plays a man who feels chained to his commitment to his longtime girlfriend who is more than ready to take their relationship to the next level. Han Ji Hye (My Boyfriend Is Type B) makes a memorable turn playing the pure-hearted girlfriend whose life hangs on the line when fate suddenly intervenes.

With their two-thousand-day anniversary just around the corner, Jun Seo (Lee Cheon Hee) and Mi Yeon (Han Ji Hye) are about to face the most difficult challenge in their lives. Unlike the steadfast and loyal Mi Yeon, Jun Seo has lately become tired and complacent in his relationship with Mi Yeon, so much so that he signs up for a year long project at the South Pole just so he can be away from his overbearing girlfriend. But fate has a wicked way of interpreting our inner thoughts: one day, Jun Seo excuses himself from Mi Yeon and hurries out of his house, whereupon he hears the shocking news that his girlfriend is hospitalized from a car accident. But when he realizes that the time of the accident was before the time he last saw her in his house, Jun Seo becomes disarrayed and rushes out to find the woman he saw earlier.

S$ 21.30
Take to the skies in writer/director Yoon Jong Chan's Blue Swallow, a film inspired by the life of Park Kyung Won, credited as one of Korea's first female civilian pilots! The Sorum director reunites Singles co-stars Jang Jin Young (Over the Rainbow) and Kim Joo Hyuk (When Romance Meets Destiny) in telling its fictionalized account of the life of Park Kyung Won (Jang), a woman pilot living under Japanese colonial rule who bravely puts everything on the line in order to achieve her dream of flying the friendly skies!

Born and raised in Daegu, Kyung Won believed that aviation school in Japan was her ticket out of poverty. To achieve her dream, she spends her days studying, while at night, she works tirelessly as a mechanic and taxi driver to save enough money for tuition. For five long years, Kyung Won attends aviation school, eventually graduating at the top of her class. But even as she earns her pilot's license, there's one thing she hasn't planned for - being forced to choose between her job and her love, as she falls for Han Ji Hyuk (Kim), a weather officer.

With a story so unique, several questions arise. What inspired her to choose such a dangerous occupation? What was her relationship with the Japanese, if any? And what kind of anti-Korean prejudice did she have to encounter in Japan? These questions and many more will be answered in Blue Swallow, an exhilarating tale of one woman who dared to dream! Shot in the United States, Japan, China, and Korea, the film also stars Nakamura Toru (Tokyo Raiders, Gen X Cops, 2009 Lost Memories), Yu Min (Bad Wife, All In), Han Ji Min (Revenge, Dae Jang Geum), and Kim Tae Hyun (All for Love, Spin Kick).

Michael Staudacher received the Best Music Award at the 43rd Daejong Awards for his work in Blue Swallow.

Daekyung DVD Silk Shoes
S$ 21.30
It took 6 long years for Yeo Gyun Dong to make his comeback as a director. Responsible for what's still one of the best road movies in Korean Cinema history, 1994's Out To The World, Yeo also starred in controversial films like Jang Sun Woo's To You From Me and romcoms like Love Bakery. Silk Shoes shares something in common with Out To The World, because of its deep road movie roots and the low key atmosphere.

Shot on a shoestring budget of 300 million won, Silk Shoes tells the story of Man-Soo, one of the many film directors struggling with the system. His films barely register a blip at the box office, but he turns out to be good enough for a group of thugs, who employ him as the director of his first real-life blockbuster. His mission? Create a realistic North Korea for the boss' senile father, to allow him to go home one last time. And then the problems begin, because as Super Family showed, trying to recreate how the neighbors up North live can be a little problematic, especially if you live in the South.

Daekyung DVD A Cruel Attendance
S$ 21.30
The story seems familiar. The average salaryman loses money and resorts to borrowing from loan sharks; then the crazy interest and threats to his life lead him to crime, in this case kidnapping. Pushed to the edge, Dong Cheol (Kim Su Ro, Vampire Cop Ricky) reluctantly teams up with the equally desperate and debt-ridden Min Ho (Lee Seon Gyun, The Customer is Always Right). The bumbling pair's first attempt fails when the victim's parents don't pick up the phone. After 108 unanswered calls, they have little choice but to give up. For their second try, they ambitiously decide to kidnap Tae Hee (Ko Eun Ah of Ssunday Seoul), the daughter of a rich family. Just when it seems they have pulled off the kidnapping, Dong Cheol receives a phone call - from his daughter's kidnapper.

If the two million tickets sold by his debut as leading actor in Vampire Cop Ricky weren't enough, Kim Su Ro's performance in A Cruel Attendance, a.k.a. Educating Kidnappers, once again proves how much he has grown both in acting skills and popularity. He has certainly come a long way since his (literally) five seconds of fame for his first role in Two Cops. Mixing quirky humor with the unique theme of double kidnapping, Kim Tae Yoon's debut film, A Cruel Attendance, could very well be the icing on the cake of Kim Su Ro's long-overdue rise to stardom.

S$ 21.30
Kim Young Jun, director of 2000's Bichunmoo, helms the exciting new fantasy swordplay epic, Shadowless Sword! Set during the Balhae Dynasty in the tenth century, the film is full of danger and political intrigue. It centers on the fate of Dae Jeong Hyeon (Lee Seo Jin, Damo) who lives a simple life in a Chinese frontier town, but who hides an amazing secret - he is an heir to the Balhae kingdom! Little does he know, however, that he will soon become the last surviving one! When the king and the remaining heirs are wiped out by the murderous Khitan, it's up to Yeon So Ha (Yoon Soy, Arahan), one of Balhae's top female warriors, to accompany the exiled Prince Jeong Hyeon back to his homeland so he can ascend the throne and take his rightful place as ruler of the empire.

Hot on their trail is a band of highly trained assassins, including Khitan chieftain Gun Hwa Pyeong (Shin Hyun Jun, Bichunmoo) and his female companion Mae Yeong Ok (Lee Gi Yong), who are looking to insure that the prince's reign will be cut short...permanently! And to make matters more complicated, it turns out that Jeong Hyeon isn't quite the regal, honorable gentleman that So Ha was expecting, but is instead a man eager to protect himself at all costs with no concern for the well-being of his fellow countrymen. Will Yeon So Ha escort Jeong Hyeon back safely? And if so, will he become the kind of leader that his people long for in this desperate time of need? The truth will be revealed in Shadowless Sword, an amazing swordplay saga also starring Park Seong Woong, Nam Ji Hyun, Han Gang, and featuring cameos by Choi Ji Woo, Kim Su Ro, and Jung Jun Ha!

S$ 21.30
The most anticipated film of the year, Fate stars two of Korea's hottest leading heartthrobs, Kwon Sang Woo (My Tutor Friend) and Song Seung Heon (He Was Cool), in a haunting portrait of friendship tainted by greed. This thrilling action noir marks Song's much awaited return to the silver screen after recently completing his military service, as well as Kwon's first stab at playing a malicious character. Real-life pals Kwon and Song play longtime best friends who share a bond that is thicker than blood. Along with two other friends, Kim In Kwon (My Father) and Ji Sung (Blood Rain), the foursome enter the fast lane of criminal life. But soon their friendship falters as fate thrusts them into a world of betrayal and deceit.

Acclaimed director Kim Hae Gon (Between Love and Hate) delivers a powerhouse action drama with ace performances from his actors. The sole female cast member, Park Han Byul (Wishing Stairs), who stars as Song Seung Heon's troubled girlfriend, exhibits a maturity beyond her years, injecting much thrill to the plot. Chockful of drama, dangerous stunts performed by the actors themselves, and high-speed action including an elaborate car chase and a spectacular harbor scene in which various land and water vehicles were mobilized, Fate promises to keep audiences glued to their seats.

Inseparable friends Woo Min (Song Seung Heon), Cheol Joong (Kwon Sang Woo), Do Wan (Kim In Kwon), and Young Hwan (Ji Sung) drift into a life of crime built on solid camaraderie, making them the best criminal alliance the city has to offer. But with the passage of time, they look for ways to restore their innocence. Marking their next casino heist as their last act, they vow to walk away from it all and find a new life. But their chance to turn over a new leaf slips through their fingers when Cheol Joong capriciously pulls a double cross. Events snowball into a climactic point of no return and a ruthless game of greed and revenge begins between the betrayer and the betrayed, with only fate left to determine the outcome of the battle.

Daekyung DVD Rough Cut (AKA: A Movie is a Movie) (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Winner takes all including the Best Actor Award in Kim Ki Duk protege Jang Hoon's stylish action blockbuster Rough Cut (a.k.a. A Movie Is A Movie). Appearing in his first production since completing his military service, Korean Wave star So Ji Sub makes his long-awaited screen comeback four years after the hit TV drama I'm Sorry, I Love You turned him into a household name throughout Asia. Still the lonesome brooder, So Ji Sub faces off against television heartthrob Kang Ji Hwan (Host and Guest, Hong Gil Dong) in this reality-blurring actioner about two actors dueling it out in front of the camera to see who steals the most spotlight. Just for the record, So Ji Sub and Kang Ji Hwan ended up sharing the Best New Actor award at the 29th Blue Dragon Awards for their performances. Attracting over a million theatergoers in its first week of release, Rough Cut is the second non-self-directed film produced by Kim Ki Duk after Jeon Jae Hong's Beautiful.

Hounded by the media everywhere he goes, movie star Soo Ta (Kang Ji Hwan) has a temper that matches his paycheck, and a bent for trouble. Shooting for his latest production, a gangster film, comes to standstill after he beats up another actor. Too invested in his role, Soo Ta recruits real-life gangster Gang Pae (So Ji Sub) to become his new co-star. Gang Pae agrees, but on one condition: all the violence in the movie has to be real instead of staged.

Daekyung DVD A Man Who Was Superman (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Sassy girl Jeon Ji Hyun finally breaks her two-year silence, making her long-awaited celluloid comeback in A Man Who Was Superman, a romantic comedy helmed by Jeong Yun Cheol (Marathon). Boldly renouncing the beloved wholesome image her fans have long been accustomed to, Jeon plays a chainsmoking, tomboyish documentary filmmaker who falls in love with a mentally challenged man who believes himself to be Superman.

The unlikely superhero is deliciously portrayed by Chungmuro's new leading man Hwang Jung Min (Happiness, You Are My Sunshine). Like Superman, Hwang wears the big letter S on his chest and the trademark S-shaped spit curl on his forehead. Some scenes from the original Superman movie are spoofed in the film with Jeon and Hwang appearing as Lois and Clark, offering a nostalgic moment for many who grew up watching the comic book superhero come alive on screen. Despite director Jeong's failed effort to feature the actual Superman theme song in his picture (largely due to a high royalty fee), A Man Who Was Superman nevertheless makes a stunning entrance like no other.

After three years of making one sappy human documentary after another, filmmaker Song Su Jung (Jeon Ji Hyun) is at her wit's end. Hoping for a refreshing change, she signs up for an African safari shoot only to see it get axed. Adding to her misery, someone mugs her precious camera. "Help! A thief!" Hearing the damsel's cry, a man (Hwang Jung Min) wearing a Hawaiian shirt runs after the thief and retreives the camera. The mystery hero then explains to Su Jung in detail about how he could not use his usual supernatural powers because Mr. Evil has implanted Kryptonite in his head. Yes, the man is Superman, or more precisely, a self-professed Superman - nonetheless, a newsworthy subject! Su Jung follows him around shooting his daily activities, which consist of frivolous - but in small degrees, heroic acts, such as finding lost pets and performing handstands in an attempt to distance the Earth from the Sun to prevent the North Pole from melting. Then one day, the man injures his head and Su Jung takes him to the hospital where she discovers that her superman does indeed, have something in his head.

Daekyung DVD Arang
S$ 21.30
Korea's latest horror film Arang is loosely based on Arang Tale, a famous folk tale in which the ghost of a minister's daughter solicits a governor to help her settle her grudge. Ahn Sang Hoon, assistant director of ...ing and director of the 2004 short "Pass Over", has been busily preparing Arang (previously titled Line), his feature debut, for the last few years. His efforts have produced an eerie, interesting film that transcends the typical summer horror flick by focusing on characters and personal horrors rather than predictable thrill elements.

Arang starts out with the usual duo of detectives. Song Yoon Ah (Hotelier and Lost in Love) is So Young, a seasoned veteran who just returned from suspension, while rookie Hyun Gi is played by My Girl's Lee Dong Wook in his film debut. Investigating a serial killer case, the two find clues leading them to a young girl violently murdered in a rural village ten years earlier. Plagued by external and internal ghosts, the detectives must unravel the disturbing mystery.

Daekyung DVD Black House (2007) (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Amongst the heady line-up of Korean summer horrors, Shin Tae Ra's grisly psychological thriller Black House has emerged as the critical and box office winner of 2007. Shin previously directed the low-budget sci-fi Brainwave in 2005, but the scope for his new title is greater, as it is co-produced by Japanese filmhouse Kadokawa Pictures and will be seeing a wide theatrical release in Japan. Delving into the investigation of a psychotic killer, the film is based on popular Japanese writer Kishi Yusuke's novel, which was previously adapted for the big screen in 1999 by Morita Yoshimitsu. Featuring top-notch production design and photography, Black House is a stylish, spine-tingling exercise in modern gore and goth that goes straight for the root of fear. Acclaimed actor Hwang Jung Min (You Are My Sunshine) underacts to great effect, creating a remarkably restrained character opposite the chilling performances of Kang Shin Il (Hanbando) and Yoo Seon (The Wig).

When insurance investigator Jeon Jun Oh (Hwang Jung Min) arrives at the scene of his latest case, a run-down house in the middle of nowhere, he is greeted with the sight of a little boy hanging from the ceiling. The child's father, Park Chung Bae (Kang Shin Il), is jumpy, shifty, and eager for insurance compensation, while frail, grieving mother Shin Yi Hwa (Yoo Seon) bears signs of physical abuse on her body. The police close the case as suicide, but Jeon suspects Park of foul play and fears that his wife may be the next target. Projecting his own troubled past into the case, Jeon wants to help Shin escape from danger, but soon discovers the shocking repercussions of digging too deep.

Comedic favorite Cha Tae Hyun (My Sassy Girl) stars in the surprise box-office hit Scandal Makers (a.k.a. Speedy Scandal), Korea's highest-grossing comedy of all time. Written and directed by first-time filmmaker Kang Hyung Chul and produced by A.P.T. director Ahn Byung Ki, Scandal Makers serves up hearty laughter with the story of a former pop idol who enters panic mode when he discovers he may have a teen daughter. Mixing family sitcom laughs with winking jabs at the entertainment industry, the film is the perfect vehicle for Cha Tae Hyun to flex his comedic muscles and hapless faces. Adding to the fun are breakthrough actress Park Bo Young (Our School E.T.), who won Best Newcomer Actress at the 45th Baeksang Arts Awards, and adorable scene-stealing child actor Hwang Suk Hyun, whose priceless facial expressions had moviegoers up in stitches. Already picked up for a Hollywood remake, Scandal Makers collected over eight million admissions during its amazing run from December 2008 to spring 2009 to become one of Korea's biggest hits of all time.

Thirty-something former pop singer Hyun Su (Cha Tae Hyun) is now a popular radio DJ who spends too much time reminiscing about his idol past. He's got plenty more to occupy his mind though when Jung Nam (Park Bo Young) shows up claiming to be his daughter. What's more, she's brought along a mischievous little boy, Ki Dong (Hwang Suk Hyun), whom she claims to be her son. In the blink of an eye, Hyun Su has become a father and a grandfather. His career is over if the media catches scent of this!

Keeping passion and intimacy alive in a long-term relationship is a challenge for most couples. Korea's darling of romantic comedy Kim Ha Neul (Almost Love) and singer-turned-actor Yoon Kye Sang (Flying Boys) who recently completed his military duty play a longtime couple whose relationship has started to go stale in Lovers of Six Years. In her first feature film, director Park Hyun Jin presents a witty heartwarming romantic comedy filled with saucy dialogue that explores the vagaries of passion in a long-term relationship, and offers a few pointers to set romance back on the right track. Playing the devils are Shin Sung Rok (The Worst Guy Ever) and former Miss Korea-turned-actress Cha Hyun Jun who expel their deadly charms on the couple, causing a major stir in their relationship. Tackling on the many blunders and slumps of love, Lovers of Six Years reveals the truth about what it takes to sustain a good long-lasting relationship.

Six years into their relationship, Da Jin (Kim Ha Neul) and Jae Young (Yoon Kye Sang) are practically living together as they each have their own place right next door to one another. A successful editor of a large publishing company, Da Jin is enjoying a lucrative career. Always attracting people with his irresistible charm, home-shopping network producer Jae Young is also at the top of his game. Blissfully unaware of the dangers of taking each other for granted, Da Jin and Jae Young simply go about their normal routines, but it slowly dawns on them that their love has become too complacent. With temptations lurking around every corner, they soon realize that their fairy tale is falling apart. Facing a turning point in their six-year relationship, Da Jin and Jae Young begin to wonder if their love will be tough enough to weather out the storm.

Directed by Heo In Moo (Love so Divine), Herb sensitively looks into the life of a young woman with the mind of a child. Much like Marathon, the film centers on a mother's love for her child. Kang Hye Jung has continuously challenged herself with a wide range of roles in films like Old Boy, Welcome to Dongmakgol, and Love Phobia, and this time she completely captures the character of a childlike woman who gets her first taste of romance and tragedy. Bravely venturing into a new world, she comes of age on her own terms, and the process is both heartwarming and tearjerking. Veteran actress Bae Jong Ok (Ad Lib Night) anchors the film with her touching performance as the mother, while Jung Kyung Ho (Gangster High) portrays Kang Hye Jung's love interest.

At first look, Sang Eun (Kang Hye Jung) is a beautiful and healthy 20-year-old woman, but in reality she has the intelligence of a seven-year-old child. Lovingly cared for by her mother (Bae Jong Ok), the simple and sweet Sang Eun sees the world in fairy tale colors. One day, a Prince Charming comes into her life in the form of policeman Jeong Bom (Jung Kyung Ho). Through budding romance and unexpected tragedy, Sang Eun learns to face the world on her own two feet.

Korea's biggest film of 2008, acclaimed kimchi western The Good, The Bad, The Weird comes to Blu-ray with sky-high anticipation and buzz. A Bittersweet Life director Kim Ji Woon's wildly entertaining remake of the Sergio Leone classic The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly transplants the rollicking tale of gun-slinging anti-heroes to the Wild East, with tour de force performances from three of Korea's finest leading men. Forming the unbeatable title trio, Jung Woo Sung (A Moment To Remember) plays the relentless bounty hunter, Lee Byung Hun (A Bittersweet Life) takes on his first villain role as the stylishly menacing gangster, and award-winning actor Song Kang Ho (The Host) is all manic charisma as the eccentric bandit. Premiering at the 61st Cannes Film Festival, The Good, The Bad, The Weird unfolds an over-the-top adventure on the vast desert terrain of 1930s Manchuria, complete with horseback chases, three-way shootouts, train robberies, and action spectacle of giddy proportions.

With their homeland under Japanese occupation, many Koreans flee to Manchuria in the 1930s to make a fast living in no-man's land, including notorious train bandit Dae Goo (Song Kang Ho), the Weird. While pulling a train heist, Dae Goo swipes a treasure map from a Japanese official. Ruthless gangster Chang Yi (Lee Byung Hun), the Bad, is also after the map, and bounty hunter Do Won (Jung Woo Sung), the Good, is after Chang Yi. Dae Goo manages to escape the ensuing train shootout and hightail it with the map, but both Chang Yi and Do Won are in hot pursuit, not to mention the Japanese army and rival bandits.

Daekyung DVD Radio Star (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Chilsu & Mansu in 1988, Two Cops in 1993, Nowhere To Hide in 1999 - the first is a masterpiece of Chungmuro's social realist movement in the 80s, the second is the buddy flick which revitalized Korean commercial cinema after the drought of the early 90s, and the last is Lee Myung Se's adrenaline-filled comeback after three years, a visual tour de force centered around the cat and dog game between cops and criminals. These three very different films share something in common: Ahn Sung Ki and Park Joong Hoon. Although there's a clear age difference (Ahn is in his fifties, and started acting at the tender age of six in Kim Ki Young's classic The Housemaid, while Park is a little younger, although he's been acting since the mid 80s), the two always shared a special on-screen chemistry. Now, seven years after Nowhere to Hide, these two great actors come together for their fourth collaboration, Lee Joon Ik's Radio Star. Their latest pairing has been another success for the acting duo, winning them joint Best Actor awards at the 27th Blue Dragon Awards and a Best Actor award for Ahn Sung Ki at the 44th Daejong Awards.

Radio Star is a curious choice for director Lee Joon Ik. After surprising just about everyone with the fusion historical drama Once Upon a Time in the Battlefield in 2003, he rewrote the records two years later with the surprise hit King and The Clown, the second-highest grossing Korean film of all time. With the entire industry waiting in anticipation for his next move, Lee follows up the period blockbuster with a markedly different entry, a little film reuniting two old friends, banking on good acting, a universal story, and metric tons of warmth.

Choi Gon (Park Joong Hoon) was a huge star in the 80s, with many hits under his name and a growing fanbase. But the music scene changed dramatically in the next 15 years, and now he finds himself a has-been without ever realizing his superstar days are over. Manager and long-time friend Park Min Soo (Ahn Sung Ki) understands this better than anyone, but he still tries to support his friend. When Gon moves to a radio station in a small town, it seems like his days in the limelight are finally over. But in that small station representing the last bus stop in his career, Gon soon starts feeling that vibe, that adrenaline he felt on the stage when he was a star.

S$ 21.30
Contrary to what one may gather from the title, Korea's latest romantic comedy Operation Makeover is not about changing appearances, but rather changing fates. Life is always full of "what ifs", and this film asks a simple question: what if you could go back in time to your first love? Knowing how things work out in the decade following, what would you do differently? First-time director Kim Chang Rae, who previously served as assistant director on the blockbuster Friend, spins a fun and interesting story in Operation Makeover (a.k.a. Project Makeover and Go Go Sister), topped with a hearty dose of 90s nostalgia. Actress Ko So Young (Apartment) and her younger counterpart Jo An (Holiday) present delightful portraits of the same woman at different ages. Backdropped by the music of popular 90s group DEUX, Operation Makeover revisits first love and reckless youth through a bumpy journey of romance and self-discovery.

Jeong Ju (Ko So Young) is a disgruntled 30-year-old woman with no boyfriend and a go-nowhere job. Bitter with how her life has turned out, she traces all her misfortunes to her first love Hani (singer Kim Jung Min in a cameo), a playboy who broke her heart and is now a famous singer. One day, she bumps into her high school friend Tae Hoon (Lee Bum Soo), who used to be a nerd but is now a rich and successful businessman. Jeong Ju knows that her life would be so much better if only she had fallen for the right guy in her teenage years. Unexpectedly, a chance to right wrongs comes up when a mysterious computer program transports Jeong Ju back in time to 1994. She is determined to show her 18-year-old self (Jo An) the correct path in life. Free-spirited teenaged Jeong Ju, however, is a lot more interested in the disingenuous Hani (Lee Joong Moon) than the doting Tae Hoon (Yoo Gun, Hello God), and she will not be so easily swayed.

Daekyung DVD The Host (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
The biggest Korean film of the year comes to DVD! Released in July 2006, Bong Joon Ho's monster film The Host ripped through the box office like a force of nature. Breaking every record on the book, The Host became the first Korean film to sell 13 million tickets, surpassing the all-time record held by King and The Clown. It topped the box office for five consecutive weeks, writing a new page in Korean cinema history. Perhaps the only thing more impressive than its box office record is the score of awards the film has picked up. The Host won Best Film and Best Supporting Actor at the 27th Blue Dragon Awards, Best Film at the 43rd Baeksang Awards, Best Director at the 44th Daejong Awards, Best Film and Best Director at the 5th Korean Awards, and Best Film and Best Actor at the 1st Asian Film Awards, amongst many other accolades.

Although monster films have a strong tradition in Japan and the U.S., they're typically relegated to bargain bins in Korea. When Bong Joon Ho, the critically acclaimed director of smash hit Memories of Murder, announced he was making a monster movie, the film industry was unsure of how to react. But this was the film Bong was always meant to make. Bong rounded together an illustrious cast led by Song Kang Ho (JSA), Byun Hee Bong (Crying Fist), Bae Du Na (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance), and Park Hae Il (Rules of Dating). Meanwhile, a monstrous budget and state-of-the-art CG technology gave birth to the proverbial beast. The result: The Host not only conquered the box office, it garnered almost universal acclaim, winning over critics and moviegoers alike from Cannes to Korea. More than just a creature feature, The Host delves into a raw, suspenseful world of unspeakable horrors, politics, conflicts, and emotions in one family's relentless fight against the monster that rose from the Han River.

Gang Du's (Song Kang Ho) family is the epitome of dysfunctional. His brother Nam Il (Park Hae Il) is a cursing, molotov-throwing unemployed college graduate; his sister Nam Joo (Bae Du Na) is a professional archer with self-esteem issues. Gang Du spends his days running a snack stall near the Han River, and his only hope, indeed the family's hope, is on the shoulders of his daughter, Hyun Seo (Ko Ah Sung). Unbeknownst to everyone, however, a horrible monster has been growing in the polluted waters of Han River, and it snatches Hyun Seo from their life. Unable to get any help from the authorities, the family is determined to get Hyun Seo back on their own, no matter what it takes.

Happy-go-lucky gym teacher Seong Geun is completely content with his easy gig teaching high school P.E., but times are getting tough and his job is in danger. When Seong Geun's school decides to sack a gym teacher in favor of an English teacher, he too makes an important decision. To survive, he must teach English! Seong Geun determinedly makes the switch from P.E. to E.T. (English Teacher), but there's only one problem: he doesn't speak English.

Known for his versatile performances in films like Vampire Cop Ricky, A Cruel Attendance, and Attack the Gas Station, Kim Su Ro flexes his comedic talents as a hapless English teacher in Our School's ET Light, fast, and entertaining, the film packs in sitcom slapstick, feel-good laughs, social commentary, and myriad madcap antics from Kim Su Ro.

S$ 21.30
The topic of Japanese colonialism blew across Chungmuro in 2007 with the acclaimed horror flick Epitaph followed by Once Upon a Time In Corea. Now comes Radio Dayz, a lighthearted comedy about a ragtag squad kicking off the nation's first radio drama during one of Korea's darkest times in history. Written and directed by Ha Ki Ho (To My Love) as his debut feature, this humorous tale is scented with deep nostalgia for the older generation, while offering fresh new fodder for younger audiences.

Known for his unusual roles, Ryoo Seung Bum (Conduct Zero) returns as an eccentric producer with a flamboyant streak. Kim Sa Rang (Hot for Teacher) epitomizes western-influenced beauty as a razzle-dazzle jazz singer, whilst Hwang Bo Ra (Shim's Family) represents traditional Korean beauty as a pansori (Korean opera) singer. Bathed in satirical humor, the film sees its own fictional drama falling prey to the cliches of modern-day K-dramas like love triangles and terminal illness. An ironic, quintessential comedy, Radio Dayz follows in the footsteps of 2005's blockbuster Welcome To Dongmakgol in drawing humor from idiosyncratic characters and offbeat situations behind the gloomy shadows of historical tragedy.

Under the scrutiny of the Japanese imperialistic regime, a team of misfits come together to make Joseon's first live radio drama, but the ending's up in the air with such an unreliable bunch. First, there's oddball producer Lloyd Park (Ryoo Seung Bum) who spends too much time cooing over his leading ladies. Then there's the writer (Kim Roi Ha, Return) who suffers from writing block. Of course, no drama is complete without the stars: the sexy and self-indulgent jazz singer (Kim Sa Rang), who always finds herself in trouble with her habitual ad-libs, and her quirky yet charming on-air rival (Hwang Bo Ra). Last but not least, there's the freedom fighter (Lee Jong Hyuk) posing as the sound engineer. Let the show begin!

S$ 21.30
In a world where most people conform to the majority, two courageous boys took the road less traveled, plunging themselves into the unique sonic terrain of the Korean narrative opera "pansori". In the gripping documentary Lineage of the Voice, first-time director Baek Yeon Ah (previously an editor on A State of Mind, Daniel Gordon's award-winning documentary about two North Korean gymnasts) spent three years following the lives of two young pansori prodigies: one from a privileged background and the other from poverty-stricken street corners.

Twelve-year-old phenom Park Su Bum has carved out an extraordinary career for himself as a child soriggun (a pansori singer), with full backing from his father and strong professional training from great mentors, including Korea's leading pansori maestro Jo Sang Hyun. On the other hand, ten-year-old Park Seong Yeol learned to sing before he could barely form words, and grew up entertaining the elderly in small villages with his pansori acts, learned from his ex-soriggun-turned-alcoholic father. The street performances were intended by his father as a means of selling over-the-counter medicine, but the money they earned was quickly spent buying more booze for the old man.

Winner of the feature documentary award at 2008 Syracuse International Film Festival, Lineage Of the Voice also featured at the 12th Pusan International Film Festival, garnering accolades for its heartfelt portrayal of two adolescent boys and their relentless fathers as they try to realize their thwarted dreams through their sons. While offering a new angle for appreciation of pansori just as Im Kwon Taek's Sopyonje did during the 1990s, Lineage Of the Voice also delivers a stirring message about the importance of discovering and pursuing one's passion in life.

There is nothing like the sisterly bond held together by a common thread of interest: money! Celebrating girl power or rather "ajumma" (housewife) power, first-time director Kim Sang Man's action comedy Girl Scout unites four generations of fearless women ranging in age from the 20s to 60s for one bold mission: to reclaim their missing money swindled by a fellow "kye" member. "Kye" is a private fund (commonly practiced by many housewives in Korea), wherein each member of the group contributes a fixed amount of money on a monthly basis, then takes turns receiving the group's savings in a lump sum. This funny and charming money-chasing adventure sees My Lovely Sam-soon's heroine Kim Sun Ah (S Diary) making a lively turn as a feisty divorcee who is not afraid to take matters into her own hands. She is joined by veteran actress Na Moon Hee (Mission Possible: Kidnapping Granny K) who plays a quirky grandma, along with comedian-turned-actress Lee Kyung Sil (Bad Housewife). With will of iron and nerves of steel, these four courageous women who call themselves the "Bong Chon 3-dong Girl Scout" flex their muscles and brains for one of the best feel-good chick flicks of 2008.

Thirty-something Mi Kyung (Kim Sun Ah) who drives a van for a living dabbles in small-time investment hoping to score big one day. She belongs to a monthly private fund gathering which includes lovable kleptomaniac granny Yi Man (Na Moon Hee) who still works at the local supermarket to support her deadbeat son; forty-something widow Bong Sun (Lee Kyung Sil) who's always looking for odd jobs to make ends meet for her two sick children; and twenty-something debt-stricken Eun Ji (Ko Joon Hee, Crazy For Love). Sharing nothing in common except for their monthly collective fund, these four women lead separate lives; but things are about to change when one of their "kye" members runs off with their money. Infuriated, Mi Kyung and her three unlikely partners form a special squad called "Bongchon 3-dong Girl Scout" to catch their thief, only to find themselves sinking into a deeper mess.

From Min Kyu Dong, director of Memento Mori, comes All for Love, a winning romantic comedy that details several different, but equally compelling kinds of love stories. Rather than present each of the six stories separately, the director cleverly overlaps them, having every story occur during the same event-filled week. Promoted as a Korean version of Love Actually, this highly romantic film, also known by the alternative titles The Most Beautiful Week of My Life and My Lovely Week has a story for just about everyone!

First off, there's the love-hate relationship between the macho Detective Nah (a hilarious Hwang Jeong Min, from You Are My Sunshine) and a psychiatrist divorcee named Yu Jeong (the equally comic Uhm Jung Hwa, from Singles). Then there's the relationship between Chang Hu (Im Chang Jeong from Cracked Eggs and Noodles) and Seon Ae (Seo Yeong Hi), one that endures even in the face of abject poverty. There's also the middle-aged romance between theater owner Gwak (Ju Heon) and the eternally vain Oh (Oh Mi Hi).

But not all love depicted in the film is romantic; All for Love also features a tale of a bachelor named Song Won (Kim Soo Ro, from Libera Me) and his paternal love for a precocious little six year old (Kim Yu Jeong). In addition, the film doesn't shy away from forbidden romances either: one, between nun-to-be Su Gyeong (Yoon Jin Seo, from Sympathy for Lady Vengeance) and a singer Jeong Hun (Jeong Kyeong Ho, from TV's Sweet 18); the other, an illicit love between a lonely divorced man (Cheon Ho Jin) and his male housekeeper (Kim Tae Hyeon). How will all these many loves fare? Find out in All for Love, a multi-story romantic comedy, sure to please viewers looking for a little love...at the movies!

Daekyung DVD Rules of Dating (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Dating isn't easy, but it gets even more complicated when it happens in the workplace. And if the two people dating are already involved with other people, then that's a whole new batch of complications to add to the equation. Can true love really bloom in such circumstances? Director Han Jae Rim received the Best New Director Award at the 43rd Daejong Awards for his work in this unconventional tale of lust and love.

The film centers on a dedicated student teacher named Choi Hong (Kang Hye Jeong, from Old Boy) who finds herself being propositioned by English teacher Lee Yu Rim (Park Hae Il, from My Mother, the Mermaid), a man who just so happens to be the person in charge of her class! But this is no innocent flirtation. Not one to mince words, Yu Rim simply asks the unsuspecting Choi Hong to have sex! To make matters even stranger, Yu Rim already has a long-time girlfriend. His wandering eye relates to his beliefs about true love: for him, there is no such thing. In his view, dating is meant solely for sexual gratification.

Choi Hong has a boyfriend of her own, a man she one day hopes to marry. But like Yu Rim, she harbors doubts about relationships, a feeling directly connected to some unpleasant experiences in her past. Surprisingly, Yu Rim's methods actually seem to charm her. But as this unconventional romance takes off, will the two cynics realize what the real purpose of dating is? And what about their significant others? Or the whispers in the teachers' lounge about their behavior? Filled with bawdy humor and fun performances, Rules of Dating is one romantic comedy that's not afraid to break all the rules!

If there's anyone who knows something about melodrama, it's certainly Director Kwak Ji Kyun. Starting his career as assistant director for famous names like Im Kwon Taek and Bae Chang Ho, Kwak made a splash with his debut film Wanderer in Winter in 1986, starring Ahn Sung Ki and Lee Mi Sook. Then for 20 years it was continued re-interpretation and re-discovery of the theme of love. Be it his fantastic 1990 film Portrait of Youth or the controversial 2000 film Plum Blossom with Kim Rae Won and Bae Du Na, Kwak always manages to tell interesting stories.

Written by Kim Eun Sook (Lovers in Paris and Lovers in Prague), Kwak Ji Kyun's first happy melodrama Fly High spotlights two young students entangled in a peculiar relationship. Min Hyeok (Ji Hyun Woo of Golden Apple and Over The Rainbow) is a handsome and talented singer and dancer. One day he meets a young student named Min Hyeon (Im Jung Eun from Stairway of Clouds) who introduces herself to a smitten Min Hyeok, saying "Hi, I'm leaving tomorrow. Sorry!" That's where their relationship seems to end, but after two years that beautiful smile returns to Min Hyeok's life once more, completely out of the blue. An ill Min Hyeon makes him a strange proposal, starting a very intense, possibly very short love story.

Kim Ki Duk (Time) was a painter in the streets of France, Park Chan Wook (Oldboy), a part-time critic, and Lee Joon Ik (King and The Clown), a marketing director for an advertising firm. But what did director Bong Man Dae do before entering the film world? Porn. Softcore porn, to be precise. Bong's adult videos were a little different from the rest, so much so that he gained a cult following who treated him like an auteur amongst third-rate amateurs. And that was the spark which ignited his 2003 film debut, the erotic drama Sweet Sex and Love. Bong has since found time to cameo in the comedy Love So Divine, produce a series of creative erotic dramas for OCN entitled Same Bed, Different Dreams, and finally complete his second feature, the horror Cinderella.

Mommy's little girl Hyeon Su (Shin Se Kyung, Moon Geun Young's friend in My Sweet Bride) is a normal 17-year-old student, beautiful enough to disregard her friends' latest obsession: plastic surgery. Or maybe the lack of interest is due to the fact that her ever so gentle mother Yoon Hee (Do Ji Won of Ladies of the Palace and The Land) is a plastic surgeon. When one of her friends decides to go under the knife for a little revision, Yoon Hee gives her more than a pretty new face. The result is blood all over the place. Seeing so many of her friends die, Hyeon Su finds comfort in her friend Sung Eun, but then she discovers a little secret mommy wouldn't want her to know...

Daekyung DVD The Game (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Recalling John Woo's 1997 action thriller Face Off, The Game unleashes its own shocking concept in which a starving street artist trades his youthful body with an old man via a brain transplant. Director Yun In Ho (When I Turned Nine, Mayonnaise), who previously worked as an assistant director on Hollywood films like Apollo 13 and French Kiss, offers a brilliant onscreen chemistry between quintessential chameleon Shin Ha Kyun (Welcome To Dongmakgol, The Big Scene) and veteran actor Byun Hee Bong (The Host, A Big Match), who surprisingly bears an uncanny resemblance to his counterpart. Both actors hit the bull's eye with their performances, capturing each other's quirks and personality traits right down to the nitty gritty details.

Though a penniless street artist with no straight visions in life, Hee Do (Shin Ha Kyun) is quite happy having his girlfriend Eun Ah at his side. One day, he receives an anonymous phone call followed by a visit from a wealthy middle aged woman Hye Rin (Lee Hye Young, No Blood No Tears). Soon, Hee Do is whisked into a big mansion where he meets an old financial tycoon Kang Noh Sik (Byun Hee Bong) who challenges him to a devious little game. The catch is if Hee Do loses the game, he must trade his youth to the old man in exchange for three billion won. Not only does Hee Do lose the bet in a flash, but also squanders everything he once had including his youthful body. Now, in a tight battle of wits, Hee Do must find a way to get his own life and body back before Noh Sik erases all traces of the past.

Approximately 1.5 million moviegoers flocked to the theatres over the 2008 Lunar New Year holiday season to see this high-octane thriller loosely based on a Japanese comic book Change. Though thick with tension, The Game exudes an undercurrent of playfulness, delivering more charm and wit than typically expected from a genre thriller. A complex, character-driven morality play, The Game provides an insightful look at how life's tragedies can be fueled by simple greed and avarice.

In the kung fu films of yore, the world was only big enough for one martial arts master who must defeat everyone else to claim his title. But times have changed, and in a small village in Chungcheong province, we have not one but two masters. And they have the same name! Master Kim (Choi Sung Kook, Crazy Assassins) is a kendo (fencing) expert who spends his time playing arcade games and arguing with little kids. Master Kim #2 (Shin Hyun Jun, Guns & Talks), is a Taekkyun expert who whines all day and can't even take care of himself properly. They finally get a decent reason to live when they start fighting for the belle (Oh Seung Hyeon) of the village, the daughter of the local Chinese restaurant owner (No Ju Hyeon, Seven Princesses). But then all their efforts go in vain, when yet another Master Kim (Kwon Oh Joong, Damo) joins the fray. He looks great, fights like a star, and can even sing a mean sonata. What can you do? If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

Master Kims makes no secret about what its major goal is: laughs, laughs, and more laughs. And comic masters Shin Hyun Jun, Kwon Oh Joong, and Choi Sung Kook are the perfect recipe. Choi has become famous as one of the best Korean actors when it comes to making a fool out of himself, while the ad-lib prowess of Shin Hyun Jun keeps getting better. Other than sitcom regular Kwon, the film also features hilarious cameos from comedy mainstays like Lee Han Wi, Park Cheol Min, and even comedians Kim Byung Man and Jung Joon Ha. Director Park Sung Gyun has had an interesting career, having worked as assistant director for Jung Ji Young's Naked Being and for the drama Besame Mucho and written the script of horror A Nightmare. His debut film, Master Kims, opens a new chapter in the director's varied career.

Based on an inspiring true story, Barefoot, Gi Bong is a wonderful tale of a man who overcomes the odds to change not only his life, but also the lives of many others in his small rural village! Directed by Kwon Su Gyeong, who co-wrote the script with Kwon Sun Won, the film centers on the title character, Gi Bong, who suffered severe brain damage when he was only a child as a result of a terrible fever. Consequently, even as a grown man, he now possesses the intellectual and emotional maturity of an eight-year-old boy. The villagers quickly dismiss him as a fool and dub him "Barefoot, Gi Bong" because of his propensity to run barefooted in order to deliver food to his mother before her potential meal gets cold!

Clearly, running is his finest talent, so it isn't too much of a surprise that Gi Bong would want to make use of his skills in the upcoming National Amateur Half Marathon! His intention, as it turns out, is to use the prize money to buy his mother a new pair of false teeth! How's that for filial piety? Inspired by the man's dedication, Mr. Baek, the village chief, volunteers his services as Gi Bong's new coach. Taking Mr. Baek's encouragement to heart, Gi Bong trains hard to accomplish his goal, and it isn't long before the villagers get a little lesson on love and family from this so-called fool! Starring Shin Hyun Joon, Kim Soo Mi, Im Ha Ryong, Tak Jae Hoon, Kim Hyo Ji and Do Ji Won, Barefoot, Gi Bong is one uplifting film you don't want to miss!

Daekyung DVD His Last Gift (VCD) (Korea Version)
S$ 21.30
Director Kim Young Jun (Bichunmoo, Wanee & Junah) presents His Last Gift. Based on an award-winning screenplay also adapted into a 2003 television drama, this film tells an emotional tale about a pair of fathers - an adopted father and a birth father - who risk all to save their ailing daughter from losing her life. Though one is a cop and the other a convicted murderer, the two share a fated bond through the little girl. Shin Hyun Jun (Shadowless Sword, Marrying the Mafia 2) stars as a jailed criminal who despite learning of his daughter's identity feels nothing but inept and helpless.

Sharing the same sentiment is Hur Jun Ho (The Restless), the adopted father who cannot pay for his daughter's surgery. Joining them is the beautiful Ha Ji Won (Miracle On 1st Street , Duelist) as the girl's birth mother. Though a tearjerker in the truest sense of the word, His Last Gift is filled with thrill-packed action, including a fistfight between two drenched combatants in the heavy rain, and an adrenaline-kicking cat-and-mouse chase inside a hospital. An eye-opening film that brings to light the importance of family love, His Last Gift hits where it hurts the most, striking directly at our apathy towards loved ones when it is they who matter the most in the end.

With little time to spare, straight-arrow detective Young Woo (Hur Jun Ho) pleads to his friend, jailed criminal Tae Joo (Shin Hyun Jun) to donate a kidney to his daughter. But why would a detective ask a convicted murderer for such a favor? The truth is that Tae Joo is the birth father of Young Woo's little girl, Sae Hee. With a hidden agenda in mind, Tae Joo takes a 10-day discharge from the prison and looks for the perfect window of opportunity to escape. But he finds himself caught in a delicate dilemma when Sae Hee catches him by the sleeve and begs him to take her to her mother. Unable to shrug off her doe-eyed innocence, Tae Joo brings Sae Hee to her mother (Ha Ji Won) but is faced with the biggest shock of his life. For the first time in his life, Tae Joo finds something that he does not want to let go of: his daughter.

Son Ye Jin (A Moment To Remember, April Snow) masters the art of seduction in Open City, an erotic crime thriller penned and directed by Lee Sang Ki in his first feature film. The chameleon actress is enchantingly breathtaking as the sexy, manipulative femme fatale who leads an organized pickpocket ring. The first Korean film to reveal the intricate inner workings of what is considered Korea's equivalent of the FBI, Open City also offers a riveting first-hand look at the various methods of pickpocketing that will have the audience think twice before leaving the house. Completely smitten by Son's beauty is Kim Myung Min (Return) who breathes much charisma into his complex role as a criminal investigator. As he finds himself caught in the deadly predicament of falling for his investigation's prime target, the onscreen chemistry between the two leads explodes to a new high. Also joining the cast is veteran actress Kim Hae Sook who won the Best Supporting Actress prize at the 45th Dae Jong Sang Awards for making a dramatic career turn playing an ex-convict. Tightly coiled with sexual tension throughout the film, Open City shows all the right moves in all the right places.

The leader of an international pickpocket organization, sexy siren Baek Jang Mi (Son Ye Jin) returns to Korea after blowing her cover in Japan. Keeping a low profile by running a small tattoo parlor, she soon organizes a new ring which quickly gains power across the country. Top-notch criminal investigator Jo Dae Young (Kim Myung Min) is called in to handle the massive pickpocket crime that is spreading like wildfire. Besieged by a dark family secret, Dae Young reluctantly takes on the case. A fatal attraction ignites when the detective saves Jang Mi from the hands of her rival ring members. Ensnared by her brazenly sexual advances, Dae Young is shocked when he later learns that she is his investigation's prime target. With so much riding on the outcome, he trails her right into her tattoo parlor. But once again, he finds himself gambling away his basic instincts in the name of passion.

Finally, a must-have handbook for finding Mr. Right! Dedicated to love-craving moaners and disgruntled whiners, Miss Gold Digger is a one-stop guide to weeding out the bad apples from the goodies. In his first feature film, director Park Yong Jib hires the bubbly, effervescent Han Ye Seul (Fantastic Couple) as his leading lady (for which Han received the Best New Actress prize at the 45th Dae Jong Sang Awards), along with Lee Jong Hyuk (A Day For An Affair), Kwon Oh Joong (His Last Gift), and g.o.d's Son Ho Young, to provide some new insight into the age-old mystery of locating one's soul mate. Just as an avid shopper would know which stores to target before stepping out of the house, Han's character suggests that women too should go on a massive shopping spree for men. Her candid philosophy of "experience brings wisdom" offers some tips to those still trying to figure out the Mr. Rights from the Mr. Wrongs.

According to Mi Soo (Han Ye Seul), a "love expert" who's got all the 3 b's a woman can possibly possess (beauty, body, and brain), the first step to achieving success in finding Mr. Right is open-mindedness. Whether it be a filthy rich hunk or a total loser, Mi Soo recommends that you keep them all on your shopping list. Like the saying "if you don't try, you'll never know", Mi Soo's next step suggests a little taste of everything that's on your list. Sound agreeable? Unfortunately, there seems to be a little glitch in the handbook as our Ms. Know-It-All is about to face a major crisis in her own love fest. Take a brisk walk down the path of wisdom with our quirky heroine as she hunts for her Mr. Right!

Jang Gyu Seong, the director of crowd-pleasers Lovely Rivals and My Teacher, Mr. Kim, returns with his new comedy Small Town Rivals. He employs again the comedic charms of "Mr. Kim" Cha Seung Won, who goes even further against type this time as an unshaven, rough-mannered, and very tanned hillbilly. Cha trades verbal spars with comedy regular Yu Hae Jin, who plays it calm and straight as his friend and rival. The two actors previously shared screens in Over the Border and Blood Rain, and their chemistry here easily drives the film. Jang continues to tweak and improve on the winning formula of his last two films, throwing political satire and affecting drama in with slapstick humor and witty dialogue. The director shows a genuine ability to stay in touch with his audience, and Small Town Rivals not only attracted healthy box office numbers, it also garnered him a Best Screenplay nomination at the 44th Daejong Awards.

Dopey farmer Cho Choon Sam (Cha Seung Won) recently became village chief, a position of great importance...in his tiny village. Meanwhile, his elementary school classmate Noh Dae Gyu (Yu Hae Jin) just got elected county magistrate. Choon Sam is rather weary of his old friend Dae Gyu's newfound success, but he reluctantly re-establishes ties in hopes of getting some public works favors for his village. The upright and good-natured Dae Gyu, however, is working on a tight budget, leading Choon Sam to be even more disgruntled and suspicious. When Dae Gyu tries to construct a nuclear waste disposal facility in the province, Choon Sam leads a demonstration to oppose the project, pushing the friends-cum-rivals into a political showdown.

Horror movies have always been a staple of Korea's summer line-up, and the title of most blood-splattered flick of 2007 goes to The Cut. The film stars beloved actress Han Ji Min, known for her saucy, charming role as an independence fighter in Capital Scandal, and Ohn Joo Wan (Bloody Tie). The Cut made headlines with its sexy, provocative poster featuring a female silhouette. Directed by Son Tae Woong, The Cut also makes use of a state-of-the-art cadaver model to enhance realism and visual scares.

Sun Hwa, Joon Suk, Ki Bum, Eun Joo, Kyung Min, and Ji Young are medical students about to experience the most gut-wrenching lesson of their lives. On the first day of anatomy class, a beautiful female cadaver awaits them in the laboratory. Strangely, soon after their encounter with the dead, a string of accidents and unexplained deaths befalls their classmates, and the students' lives spiral out of control as they begin to suffer from unexplainable hallucinations and delusions. Suspecting the first cadaver they dissected to be the primary link behind the killings, they begin to investigate the past to find out why they have been marked for death. They get the fright of their lives when they discover that eighty percent of cadavers are victims of unnatural death with no surviving relatives. Suddenly, nothing seems the way it appears to be...

S$ 21.30
Picture this situation: a professor, his attractive young student, and a white Mercedes. He simply wanted a nice weekend drive in the countryside with his favorite student - but he quickly discovers that sometimes people can be scarier than ghosts. What seemed like his own One Fine Spring Day turns into a Korean-style Deliverance, complete with angry, crazy country bumpkins. And then it just becomes a miserable day for everyone involved.

Extremely violent, sadistically comic and just oozing creativity from every corner, Won Shin Yeon's second film A Bloody Aria continues one of the most important trends in recent Korean Cinema, that of mixing elements from different genres and adding a little (wicked) humour on the side. Whereas his debut The Wig was a producer-driven horror film heavy on the visuals, A Bloody Aria is pure, unadulterated raw energy. Its script created huge buzz in the industry, when it won an important contest in 2004. And with a cast like that, it's no surprise the performances carry the film: Han Suk Kyu plays a villain for the first time in his career, and eternal second-liners Oh Dal Soo (Oldboy, Sympathy For Lady Vengeance) and Lee Moon Shik (A Big Match, Mapado) get the chance to show their considerable talent. A Bloody Aria is certainly not for the weak of heart, but it's probably one of Korea's most unique black comedies since The Humanist.

They dared to dream the impossible...

One of the best surprise hits of 2008 and Best Film winner at the 29th Blue Dragon Awards, Forever the Moment is a fictionalized account of the real-life Korean women's national handball team which against all odds reached the finals at the 2004 Athens Olympics Game. The world witnessed a true miracle as these fierce underdogs strode past the nonbelievers and proudly battled it out against the powerhouse Denmark team in a decisive game. Director Lim Soon Rye (Waikiki Brothers) presents an inspirational saga that travels beyond the typical sports film, weaving a touching humanistic tale about ordinary women and their remarkable journeys. The first film in history to revolve around the sport of handball, Forever the Moment hit the wall during its initial phase because of the lack of reference material and investors, but the film's real-life story served as an inspiration for the film's production team.

Anchored by a high-caliber cast that includes Moon So Ri (Bewitching Attraction), Kim Jung Eun (Marrying The Mafia), Kim Ji Young (Old Miss Diary), and Uhm Tae Woong (Devil), Forever the Moment illuminates with its realistic portrayal which includes interview footage with the real-life heroines and the appearance of the Danish women's handball pro-league team who spared no effort in acting out their part for the crucial final match scene. Three and a half years in the making, Forever Moment is a stirring testament to the power of human spirit.

Japanese pro-league handball coach Hye Kyung (Kim Jung Eun) is suddenly called in to salvage the Korean women's national team. To improve the team, Hye Kyung recruits her old teammate, two-time Olympic winner Mi Sook (Moon So Ri), and a few other older players. But trouble looms when Hye Kyung's aggressiveness causes ripples in the team, eventually leading her to be replaced by famous handball star Seong Pil (Uhm Tae Woong), her former lover. After much consideration, Hye Kyung decides to remain as one of the team players, but now Seong Pil is in the hot seat as his European-style training regiment and diet does not sit well with the older players. To make matters worse, the team loses to a high school boys handball team in a qualifying match! But where there's hope, there's a way...

It is October 1988 and the city of Seoul has been rejuvenated thanks to the recent Olympic Games. But a few months after this celebration of sport and humanity, the city was sent into shock waves after a daring and, until then, unheard of prison break. Based on the gripping true story, Lee Song Jae stars as Ji Kang Hyuk, whose neighborhood is destroyed to make way for pre-Olympics re-development. The destruction of their homes incites the people to riot, and Ji loses control after seeing his friend gunned down by police.

Ji finds himself in jail and his life gets even worse when the new prison warden is revealed to be Ahn Seok (Choi Min Soo), the officer who killed his friend. The warden proceeds to make Ji's life a living hell, until he is driven to escape. And shockingly, he succeeds, with the aid of a gang of inmates who help him overpower their armed guards. The nine days that followed have been well-chronicled in the Korean media, as Ji and his gang robbed and rampaged, before holing themselves up with a houseful of hostages to sweat out a long and draining police siege. Ji's immortal statement, "The wealthy are always innocent, while the poor are always guilty" struck a chord with the Korean people and helped Ji's legend live on, long after the siege came to its tragic end.
