    December 11, 2018 ‘Default’ holds off competition for second week: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ continues to rock and roll in its sixth weekend Source: INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily Despite several new releases hitting theaters last week, the best-performing movies over the weekend stayed the same. While “Default” stayed atop the Korean box office for the second straight week, the sensational “Bohemian Rhapsody” impressively took the second place spot in its sixth weekend. From Friday to Sunday, “Default,” set right before a wave of bankruptcies that overwhelmed Korea and led to the International Monetary Fund bailout of the country in 1997, sold 631,000 tickets at 982 screens, accounting for 25.9 percent of the entire weekend ticket sales revenue. According to the data provided by the Korean Film Council on Monday, the movie pulled in 5.59 billion won ($5 million) over three days. Since its release on Nov. 28, the movie, starring Kim Hye-soo, Cho Woo-jin and Yoo Ah-in, has sold a total of 2.7 million tickets. Right behind “Default” was “Bohemian Rhapsody.” In its sixth weekend, the movie, about the British rock band Queen and its lead singer Freddie Mercury, sold 592,000 tickets at 965 screens from Friday to Sunday. Since its release on Oct. 31, the movie has sold more than seven million tickets, and has raked in more than 61 billion won as of Sunday. Although the horror movie “Door Lock,” adapted from Spanish horror title “Sleep Tight” (2011), started off strong in its debut on Wednesday and continued staying atop the daily box office for the next two days, its performance dropped slightly over the weekend. Over three days, “Door Lock,” about a woman whose house is continuously being intruded by a mysterious and frightening stranger without her knowledge, sold 572,000 tickets, with total ticket sales adding up to 823,000. The movie shows the realistic dangers, threats and fears a woman living alone could experience. The movie stars Kong Hyo-jin as the woman living alone, Kim Ye-won as her supportive co-worker and Kim Sung-oh as a detective. Disney’s live action fantasy film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” arrived at a distant fourth. The widely-anticipated movie, starring Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren and Mackenzie Foy, sold only 74,000 admissions. The adaptation of the ballet classic aimed for a splash just ahead of the upcoming Christmas season, but failed to seize people’s hearts. It features a fearless, young and intelligent heroine named Clara (Foy) who has difficulty getting over the death of her mother. Feeling lethargic and filled with grief, she questions her place in the world. Things suddenly change when Clara receives a locked egg-shaped music box without a key from her father on Christmas Eve. Determined to find out what’s inside, Clara starts a journey to find the key. In the process, she enters a far-away land, where she embarks on a dangerous yet fulfilling journey. “Mortal Engines,” another new release, rounded out the top five. An adventure fantasy story adapted from the young adult book series by Philip Reeve sold 131,000 tickets over the three days. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, where humans live in moving cities that devour smaller towns, the movie revolves around a group of people who try to prevent London - a giant predator city on wheels - from devouring everything in its path.

  6. Planned to make and post these much earlier .. like, before SJS started his drama. But one task led to another and another.. so, here they are, finally. Better late than never. This is probably the last post.. doesn't feel like there'll be a season 2 unlike the other variety shows (still waiting for TMAD / Youn's Kitchen / GOF). But, who knows.. right? Poor Little Match Girl.. Truth about Cats and Dogs.. Perfect Double-burger PPL..

    December 10, 2018 Jin Goo And Seo Eun Soo To Lead JTBC’s Remake Of Japanese Drama “Legal High” Source: Soompi by J. Lim JTBC’s remake of the Japanese series “Legal High” has found its leading actors! On December 10, it was announced that Jin Goo and Seo Eun Soo have been cast in the leading role for “Legal High.” The drama will tell the story of two completely different lawyers. Go Tae Rim is a lawyer with a 100 percent success rate who knows how to play with the law, and Seo Jae In is a rookie lawyer who believes in the law and justice. The series will be based on the 2012 Japanese drama of the same name. Jin Goo will take on the role of Go Tae Rim, who may be sharp-tongued and full of arrogance, but he also has a 100 percent success rate in his cases. He’s the kind of person who believes the purpose of cases is to win, and to lose would be to give up his status as a lawyer and a human being. He is so talented that as long as you can pay the high legal fees he asks for, a win is guaranteed. Meanwhile, Seo Eun Soo will play Seo Jae In, who may not have had the highest marks in her class but is second to none when it comes to pursuing justice. She wants to be a just lawyer who helps those in need, but when she’s faced with the reality of the societal mentality that “A lawyer who can’t win is useless,” she puts everything on the line and teams up with GO Tae Rim. The drama will follow their story as two completely different lawyers team up to take on various challenges together. The production staff stated, “Jin Goo and Seo Eun Soo plan to bring laughter to viewers as they take realistic situations head-on. Please anticipate the two actors’s transformation for their new roles.” “Legal High” is set to premiere in February 2019 on JTBC. Source (1)

  9. BH101 by MJ If we follow Minjung's IG, we'd know that she is a foodie.. she has been posting and sharing a lot about food & meals shared with her friends. This explains why MJ often goes out with her BFFs for meals.. but when at home or on trips with BH, the couple shared their meals their way. MJ might be eating slower at the beginning of the marriage, she's eating a bit faster now. And as indicated in the related articles, BH had also slowed down as well, to match with his wife's pace. That's a good compromise, eventually. LBH is very professional at work, he usually is the first lead in the project but he doesn't want the other cast / crew to wait on him. He always came prepared before filming and doesn't waste time unnecessarily. This is why movie directors / PDs / writers wanted to work with him. A lot of people tend to think the worst of LBH but they could not be more wrong and they'd be surprised if they knew which actor(s) are really the ones being 'divas' at the set. Thank you to utarykk for uploading & sharing this precious clip. Again, my English translation & perception may be a little different from the original dialogue ~ MJ: I'm a slow eater. I eat very slowly as I wanted to enjoy my meal. We only have three meals a day, so I wanted to eat leisurely. But now my pace is much faster. When first getting married, I eat very slowly. MJ: I would take out the dishes, slowly. But he couldn't wait for me. BH eats less than 5 minutes. He really eat his meal so fast. Because of the busy and tight schedule at the filming set, eating fast becomes a habit for him. Guest: Is that so. MJ: He also has a bigger mouth. He could eat a large 'wrap' easily. (MJ showing with her hand ) I was just bringing out the soup and he already finished eating. I was so surprised.

    Kim Hye Soo 김혜수

    December 10, 2018 'Default' wins for second weekend at box office By Shim Sun-ah SEOUL, Dec. 10 (Yonhap) -- The Korean drama film "Default" is approaching the 3 million mark in attendance with another number one weekend at the box office, data showed Monday. The movie garnered 631,249 admissions in local theaters from Friday to Sunday, bringing its domestic total to 2.7 million, according to data from the Korean Film Council. Directed by Choi Kook-hee, the CJ Entertainment release looks back at a difficult time for South Korea, when the country was on the verge of bankruptcy during the 1997 Asian financial crisis. It stars Kim Hye-soo, Cho Woo-jin, Yoo Ah-in and Huh Joon-ho. French actor Vincent Cassel plays the role of the managing director of the International Monetary Fund.

  13. Yes, his impact in Japan is still going strong and now with MR.SUNSHINE, he's also more known internationally. Not that he hasn't, he already made his mark through highly-acclaimed Korean movies. However, higher number of viewers are more interested with everything related to Korean dramas, so this has been a reboot of some sort as well. Totally agree that no other actor could play Storm Shadow and the production must not mess with this character as the comic book ardent fans will not like it. Paramount better not treat him like they did with Terminator Genisys. At least there would be either GI Joe 3 (if it happens) and the Snake Eyes spin-off movie, or both but a lot of travelling & work for BH, again. Whenever he's in LA, BH would be discussing work and negotiating (schedules) indeed. It's his job and he'd be the one doing it, so he needs to set everything beforehand for things to run smoothly. It's not like he can go back-and-forth each time. It's almost sure that he'll be in the US in 2019 after finishing the MOUNT BAEKDU filming. As for CHIEFS OF NAMSAN, from some fan-sightings and IG posts (related to props/locations rented), the filming is really going well. It's most likely that they will finish filming before year ends.
