@irilight thank you so much for linking to that beautifully written and insightful review by @KwonSangSeung i still point my finger at SBS for their responsibility in the debacle - they under-promoted MHTT (I believe there isn't a single BTS video of the drama).
More reviews/mention of My Heart Twinkle Twinkle: Thanks to the three reviewers on MyDramalist: http://mydramalist.com/11942-my-heart-twinkle-twinkle/reviews and thank you to Irteqa for the mention of both MHTT and BSB in the seoulbeats Mid-Year Review http://seoulbeats.com/2015/07/sb-mid-year-review-2015-dramas-get-some-cliche-love/
Wonder if the movie is generally more favourably thought of by people who are fans of martial arts movies? A positive tweet by Simon Abrams, a freelance film critic whose work has been featured in The Village Voice, Esquire and rogerebert.com:
Looking forward to reading Mr Abrams' review, to see what he thinks works (and also what doesn't).
@rubie the same critic at Blood Brothers gave 2.5/5 to a recent movie (Tsui Hark movie) which I think was also shown by Well Go. He also gave a high rating to I Saw the Devil - you might wish to read his review The Naver site for MoTS has an average rating of 6.12 given by journalists (I think?) - I would like to believe that that is a more " accurate" assessment of the film.
@rubie I just glanced through quickly some of the reviews done by Matt Reifschneider - he must have watched over two hundred martial arts films, including many Shaw Brothers classics of the 60s and 70s.
Good to see BSB at the VIP premiere of The Chosen: Forbidden Cave (no performance of The Pride for him today).He's worked with a few of the cast members before; my guess is that he's invited by Im Hwa Young (ex-BH Ent). Love his look and simple outfit today:
Thanks to TheFact for this clip: yep, I think it's IHY who invited BSB:
Thanks to ZenithNews for this clip of the press call - Philip (BSB) in the doctor's (?) office:
http://tvcast.naver.com/v/487579 Same scene, different video - love it, thanks to uploader, themusicalco. http://www.themusical.co.kr/Media/Detail?enc_num=ZoFuCHU8D8TN/5WIIxV0Gg%3D%3D Thanks to TVDaily for this clip of the VIP premiere of Beauty Inside:
@rubie superb job on updating this thread, and naming the guests (most of them are unknown to me also) The handsome young man in the pic above Kim Sun Young is Lee Jae Joon. The lovely lady on the right of Kim Jae Kyung is Noeul (both from Ranbow). Also at the premiere were: http://www.generasia.com/wiki/Rosie_(WE) - real name Kang So Yeon; and http://asianwiki.com/Soy real name Kim So Yeon (so coincidental that both ladies are called So Yeon :)) Big thank you to Ms Google Translate.
Must say that I've never watched any of Jung Ryeo Won's dramas but was absolutely charmed by her brief appearance at the VIP premiere. Very happy to see BSB at the event (and keeping my fingers crossed that he has a little more screen time than what has been shown in the clips so far).
