Time to Hunt, the latest movie from director Yoon Sung-hyun after 9 years, is slated for February premiere on the 26th (although the date has been pushed to March due to the alarming spread of COVID-19 in South Korea). The director himself has been invited to give a number of interviews, despite being the director of a movie that is yet to be screened. The premiere date itself was only confirmed during the press conference on January 31st, and the cast members of Time to Hunt arrived at the studio for the photo shoot session of CINE21 cover pictorial later on that day after dinner, having to meet a number of schedules for the whole day.
Lee Je-hoon, Ahn Jae-hong, Park Jung-min, Choi Woo-shik. The four actors who have written their own history in movies cross paths by chance in the film Time to Hunt.
New year, new movies of course! Although there’s not much changes except for changing number in years and age (when you’re old like me LOL), there’s something we can be sure of: new movies in production will come out. I’m ecstatic to see not one. but THREE sageuk movies making it into the list of premiering titles in February 2018: one is the ‘Joseon Sherlock Holmes’ 조선명탐정 Joseon Detective 3; the other one is the much anticipated 흥부 Heungbu; last but not least is the second part of the Korean Confucian ‘mechanics’ series, 궁합 Gunghap.
Director Lee Joon-ik delivers the first teaser for his anticipated movie Park Yeol earlier today, with a lighter tone as compared to the heavy premise everyone expected it to be based on the subjects alone. With its English title Anarchist from Colony, the movie’s first teaser is considerably campier compared to Sado’s breathless and Dongju’s subdued teasers, the two most recent productions from the director. At least the wait won’t be that long, since Park Yeol will be gracing the Korean big screens in June.
It looks like the magazine heard my prayers for Kim Rae-won to have more pictorials, because he’s being featured in W’s April issue. I am guessing this is in anticipation of his upcoming movie, The Prison which will hit Korean theatres tomorrow, March 23. The film also stars Han Suk-kyu, Jo Jae-yoon, Jung Woong-in, Shin Sung-rok, Lee Kyung-young and Kim Sung-kyun. It will tell a story of a group of prisoners escaping to commit crimes.
