  2. September 19, 2017 CINE21 published an interview (in Korean) with Lee Byung Hun. We can read and understand some of it via Google translate. Mostly questions about THE FORTRESS but realizing that Korean genres tend to focus more on male-dominated action thrillers, LBH stated that he's very grateful to be able to film SINGLE RIDER (with female director Lee Jo Young) and IT'S ONLY MY WORLD (with veteran actress Youn Yuh Jung). Asked about Hollywood, LBH mentioned that his next Hollywood project is pending. While there are some good suggestions, it's still easier to express and present good domestic projects, acting-wise. In the end, everything will be his choice, as he's trying to decide without greed and be forced to fit due to pressure. Just a bit of Google-gist to share, in the meantime a couple of nice pictorial photos released Source: CINE21
  3. September 19, 2017 Lee Je Hoon Opens Up About How Much He Enjoyed Being A Guest On “Three Meals A Day” Source: Soompi by J. Lim Actor Lee Je Hoon appeared on “2 O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show” on September 19 and during his interview, he opened up about his experience being a guest on tvN’s “Three Meals a Day.” The latest season of the show has been inviting guests to the island, and Lee Je Hoon was the second star to stay with the trio of Shinhwa’s Eric, Lee Seo Jin, and Yoon Kyun Sang. Talking about his time on the island, Lee Je Hoon said, “I was worried that things might get awkward hanging out together with all of us being guys. But Eric made sure to make me feel comfortable and told me, ‘It’ll be okay. Don’t worry about it and relax.'” He continued to add, “Eric’s food is really delicious. It’s so good that it left me speechless. I think his food is the tastiest thing I’ve eaten recently. I can’t cook at all, so I’m envious of how much of a great cook Eric is.” Lee Je Hoon also talked about Lee Seo Jin and said, “He took care of me like I was his younger brother. He made me feel at ease, and I think that’s why I was able to open up to him and ask him lots of questions.” Source (1)

  5. September 18, 2017 Booking war starts for Chuseok holiday movies By Kim Jae-heun The Korea Times Moviegoers are rushing to book tickets for long-awaited movies during Chuseok, the harvest festival, as the 10-day holiday period is approaching. The government has designated Oct. 2 as a temporary holiday, practically making the first week of October a "Golden Week" of Chuseok. Chuseok is the time when the biggest numbers of moviegoers gather to watch movies, along with the summer break. The film industry is expecting even more moviegoers to flock to theaters as this year's Chuseok marks the longest break of the year. According to the Korean Film Commission Monday, the British action film "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" has the highest ticket sales with 20 percent. It is set to be released in local theaters on Sept. 27. "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" is a follow-up to "Kingsman: The Secret Service" released in 2015, which collected 6.12 million viewers here despite its R-rated status. It set a record as one of the most successful foreign films at the local box office and the latest film is also rated R. Actors Colin Firth, Taron Egerton and Mark Strong, who star in the film, will visit Seoul on Wednesday to promote it and participate in the press conference the following day. It is the first time for Firth and Strong to come to Korea and fans are excited to see them. Korean action film "Criminal City" is ranked second in ticket sales for the Chuseok box office. The film is based on the true story of a notorious criminal ring which decides to take over a new criminal gang in Harbin, China, that put Korean society in danger in 2004. It stars popular actors Don Lee and Yoon Kye-sang. The actors and film crew have been traveling around the nation since last Thursday to promote the movie in 12 different cities, including Seoul, Busan and Daejeon and the movie has been well-received after the premieres. The action film will open on Oct. 3. The most anticipated film in the second half of this year is "The Fortress" starring big name stars Lee Byung-hun, Kim Yun-seok and Park Hae-il. The history drama film, directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk is based on the novel "Namhansanseong" by Kim Hoon. It depicts the war of the Second Manchu invasion of Korea in 1636, where King Injo and his retainers sought refuge in the fortress located in Namhansanseong. The King spent 47 days in the isolated fortress to avoid death from the Qing Dynasty's attack. Lee took the role of Choi Myung-kil, a leader of one of the two ideological cliques that clashed _ making peace during the fight against the Qing Dynasty. Kim, on the other hand, plays Kim Sang-hun, who went against Choi's opinion and firmly believes in defending the nation's dignity by fighting against the Qing Dynasty's army. The historical movie is also set to open at local theaters on Oct. 3. jhkim@ktimes.com

    September 19, 2017 [Korean Box Office] ‘Memoir of a Murderer’ holds its top box office spot Source: INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily “Memoir of a Murderer” stayed at the top of Korea’s box office in its second weekend. [SHOWBOX] The action-packed “Baby Driver” raced to the second spot in its debut weekend at the Korean box office while Tom Cruise’s latest “American Made” reached the third spot in its first weekend. But local crime thriller “Memoir of a Murderer” held on to the top spot for the second weekend in a row. Starring Seol Kyung-gu and Kim Nam-gil, “Memoir of a Murderer” maintained its spot atop the box office despite competition from several new releases. The film, based on Kim Young-ha’s 2013 bestselling novel, sold 483,000 tickets from Friday to Sunday at 884 screens, accounting for 31.7 percent of the weekend’s entire ticket sales. Since its release on Sept. 6, it has raked in a total of 4.07 billion won ($3.6 million), and has sold a total of 2.06 million tickets. Director Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” came in at second, selling 338,000 admissions, bringing its total sales to 422,000 since it hit theaters on Thursday. Starring Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx, the film is a heist tale revolving around a young getaway driver Baby (Elgort), who soundtracks his life with a constant stream of music with a collection of iPods used for different moods and locations. Music plays a key role in the film, as the car chases and shootouts are choreographed to Baby’s playlist, which includes songs like Queen’s “Brighton Rock” and Bob & Earl’s “Harlem Shuffle.” Cruise’s latest vehicle “American Made” is based on the life of Barry Seal: the infamous pilot who became a drug smuggler and in turn became an informant at the center of the Iran-Contra scandal. Directed by Doug Liman, the movie sold 216,000 tickets over the three days. “It,” based on Stephen King’s eponymous bestseller, and action comedy “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” each dropped two spots to rank fourth and fifth, respectively. Film industry watchers can expect changes in the weekend box office next week with the release of “I Can Speak,” which is being released to coincide with the upcoming Chuseok holiday.
