    Lee Seo Jin Is Told He Should Just Marry Choi Ji Woo, This Is How He Responds
    Soompi

    On the July 31 episode of tvN’s “Three Meals a Day,” Lee Seo Jin dropped a brow-raising comment about Choi Ji Woo, who had been on the show the prior week.
    While waiting for the guest of the week to show up, Taecyeon tries some of the kimchi that Choi Ji Woo had brought to the house, and comments on how good it is. Lee Seo Jin then says, “Is she not coming again today?” Producer Na Young Suk says cheekily from behind the camera, “Bring her here everyday?” “Just get married then.”
    But Lee Seo Jin responds, “If we get married, [I’d] probably bring her [here] even less. Because if you get married you want to be apart more.”
    Hilariously, the on-screen caption says, “What is he saying..”
    Later, when Son Ho Joon shows up, Lee Seo Jin does not hold back in expressing his disappointment.

    "Assassination" has topped ticket sales for Korean movies released this year.
    The action movie has drawn almost 6.19 million people, beating "Northern Limit Line"s 6 million, according to the Korean Film Council on Sunday.
    More than 6 million tickets had been sold in the 11 days after the film opened on July 22, the shortest time a Korean movie has taken to reach the mark this year. Average ticket sales were more than 580,000 a day.
    Set in the 1930s during Japanese colonial rule of Korea (1910-1945), the movie spotlights the heroic attempts of Korean independence fighters who battled fearlessly for freedom and justice in defiance of their colonial rulers.

    Korean film 'Assassination' tops 6 million viewer mark
    SEOUL, Aug. 2 (Yonhap) -- The Korean action film "Assassination", which features colonial-era assassination attempts by Korean independence fighters, drew more than 6 million viewers in 11 days since its opening, box-office data showed Sunday.
    Since its release on July 22, the film was watched by 6,005,639 viewers as of Saturday, including a daily viewer count of 585,705 registered on that day, according to the data by the Korea Film Council.
    The feat makes "Assassination" the first South Korean film this year to surpass the 6 million viewer mark in the shortest time since its release.
    It's about the same speed as director Choi Dong-hoon's previous movie, "The Thieves," in 2012.
    The favorable outcome is also likely to help cement Choi's position as the second-ever film director who has achieved the feat of drawing more than 10 million viewers for two successive movies in South Korea.
    Previously, director Yoon Je-kyoon achieved the title with his movies, "Tidal Wave" and "Ode to My Father."
       Set in Shanghai and Seoul in the 1930s when Korea was a colony of Japan, the star-studded film by Choi depicts three Korean independence fighters teaming up to assassinate the commander of the Japanese troops in Korea and a Korean business tycoon with ties to Japan.
    Among the actors in the leading roles are Jun Ji-hyun, Lee Jung-jae and Ha Jung-woo.

    The 25 Best Action Movies Of The 21st Century So Far
    By Jessica Kiang and Oliver Lyttelton | The Playlist
    We think it was Jean-Luc Godard who once said “the purest form of cinema is Tom Cruise dangling off something very high.” Well, maybe it was Bresson. Regardless, this week sees the release of “Mission Impossible — Rogue Nation,” the fifth in the long-running spy series that over the last twenty years has presented some of the most spectacular set pieces for the screen in modern times, and in a year when action cinema has been thrillingly revived, it marks a high point. 
    The action movie has been around since 1903's “The Great Train Robbery,” and when done right, it's a form of pure cinema injected straight into the veins. It’s a very particular set of skills, one that’s thwarted many great directors, but in able hands capable of precisely choreographing a fight, battle, chase or showdown, to shoot them in inventive and thrilling ways, and to cut them to maximize tension and visceral qualities, the form can reach a level of transcendence.
    With Ethan Hunt smashing up motorbikes and hanging off planes again, it seemed like the perfect time to turn the spotlight of our Best Of The Century So Far series (see Comedies, Sci-Fi, Music Documentaries, Animations and Horror) to the action movie. We tried to exclude films in slightly adjacent but different genres —war, thriller, superhero— and those that had already appeared in one of our lists, but otherwise, any theatrically-released action fare was game. Take a look below and let us know your favorites in the comments.
    25. “Bad Boys II” (2003) 
    24. “Unstoppable” (2010) 
    23. “Lucy” (2014) 
    22. “Blackhat” (2015) 
    21. "The Good, The Bad, The Weird" (2008) 
    Hollywood may have given up on the Action-Western (and if they hadn’t before “The Lone Ranger,” they certainly have now), but Korea hasn’t, as Kim Jee-Woon’s agreeably nutty “The Good, The Bad, The Weird” makes abundantly clear. Like Sergio Leone directing a mash-up of “Treasure Of The Sierra Madre” and “Raiders Of The Lost Ark,” the film’s convoluted plot sees the title characters (Jung Woo-sung, Lee Byung-hun and Song Kang-ho) tussling over a treasure map in 1930s Manchuria. Beginning with three cracking sequences in a row —a train robbery, a siege and a heist— the film barely lets off the gas from there, until the epic closing horse and motorcycle sequence. With the tone-juggling magic that often characterizes Korean cinema and Kim’s killer skills behind a camera, it’s essential for anyone that loves Westerns, Asian action flicks or cinema in general. 
    20. “All Is Lost” (2013)
    19. “Elite Squad” (2007) 
    18. “Sleepless Night” (2011) 
    17. ”Ong Bak" (2003)
    16. “Fast Five” (2011)
    15. “Why Don’t You Play In Hell?” (2013) 
    14. “Hero” (2002) / “House Of Flying Daggers” (2004) 
    13. “Casino Royale” (2006) 
    12. “Apocalypto” (2006)
    11. “Gladiator” (2000) 
    10. “13 Assassins” (2010) 
    9. “Crank” (2006)
    8. “John Wick” (2014)
    7. “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” (2011)
    6. “The Bourne Ultimatum” (2007)
    5. “Exiled” (2006) 
    4. “The Raid” (2011)
    3. “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon” (2000) 
    2. “Kill Bill” (2003/2004) 
    1. “Mad Max: Fury Road” (2015)
    Honorable Mentions: So what did we leave out? Well, a ton. We tried to avoid anything already appearing on one of these Best Of The Century lists, which meant things like “Edge Of Tomorrow,” “District 9,” “Star Trek,” “Inception,” “Minority Report,” “Attack The Block,” “Hot Fuzz,” “Gravity,” “Battle Royale," and “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.” We also tried to avoid superhero movies, because we may do a separate piece for those at some point, and also because it’s not like they need the help. We also excluded war movies (“Black Hawk Down,” “The Hurt Locker”) and thrillers (“Collateral”), which would only muddy the waters further, and stuck to theatrical releases, so missing excellent DTV movies like “Universal Soldier: Day Of Reckoning."
    Even then there’s plenty we couldn’t fit in. Briefly (and excluding sequels to other films mentioned above), there was also “Ip Man,” “Avatar,” “The Rundown,” “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” “The World’s End,” “Hanna,” “The Last Stand,” “Brotherhood Of The Wolf,” “Kung Fu Hustle,” “Zatoichi,” “Torque,” “Red Cliff,” “300,” “Grindhouse,” “Chocolate,” “Pineapple Express,” “District 13,” “Let The Bullets Fly,” “Welcome To The Punch,” “Fulltime Killer,” “A Bittersweet Life,” “The Man From Nowhere,” “The Nest,” “Dredd,” “Point Blank,” “Fearless,” “Unleashed,” “Taken,” “Sherlock Holmes," and “The Matrix Reloaded.”
