Kim Yun-jin Returns as Distraught Mother

By Lee Hyo-won

Staff Reporter


Actress Kim Yun-jin's latest battle onscreen is not surviving the aftermath of a plane crash but negotiating the safe return of her kidnapped daughter. The star of "Lost'' returns to Korean cinema for the first time in two years through "Seven Days'' as a hotshot lawyer who must pay a dear price for her child's life.

Director Won Shin-yun ("A Bloody Aria,'' 2004) offers an emotionally charged, action-packed thriller where Kim stars as a mysterious attorney whose life takes a frightening turn when a man abducts her daughter. The kidnapper offers a deal: to clear all charges of first-degree murder against a suspect in just seven days or else the child's life is at stake. This is mission impossible, even for someone who has never lost a case.

"I hadn't received such a well-constructed screenplay in a long time,'' Kim said about seeing the script for the first time. "It was hard for me as an actress in Korea to come across such a complicated female character. For `Seven Days,' with its tightly knit scenario and attractive character, I really did not have trouble making a decision. I also had great confidence in the director, so I wanted to work right away.''

Kim spoke to reporters briefly after viewing the movie for the first time at a Seoul theater, Monday. She apologized in advance for having to leave early to catch her flight back to Hawaii.

"An attorney or a mother, I think it became increasingly difficult as I acted out those roles. I was constantly agonizing over it because there is no `right way' to do it per se,'' she said.

"It was also a situation where I couldn't entirely express my emotions, so the director and I discussed how much emotional range we should portray. We shot scenes from different angles, and I think we managed to capture it pretty well so I am quite satisfied.

"The movie shows situations that people should never have to experience firsthand. One should never have to go through them even indirectly, nor would I ever want to,'' she said about having to act out such dramatic circumstances. "Sometimes the imagination is much more intense… I think I just went by the script and did as the director told me,'' she said.

Kim looked very chic in a gold-studded black outfit that day, vastly different from her distraught character in the film, though she said she never paid heed to looking pretty onscreen. The star smiled brightly for the camera with the director and her co-star Park Hee-soon on her arms. The venue buzzed with reporters and incessant camera flashes.


When asked about how it was like to work with a "world star,'' the director explained how Kim deeply impressed him.

"After the first or second day of shooting, Yun-jin wrote me an email, saying `My beloved director,' and listed all her grievances. And I thought, this isn't going to be easy. But her complaints were really signs of affection, and I felt wonderful. I am truly fortunate to have been able to work with Yun-jin,'' he said, explaining how Kim's warmth lightened up the working atmosphere.

"I was very nervous at first… I thought how snobby Kim Yun-jin might be, having gotten some Hollywood air,'' said Park. "I sent her an SMS, saying how honored I was to work with her, and she replied, expressing her discomfort with the `star treatment.'

"And as we worked together I saw how down-to-earth and humble she was, and how she managed to keep her smile even though her parts were very emotionally draining and could easily make an actor very sensitive… But I maintain what I first said, it was an honor to work with her,'' he said.

"Seven Days'' will open across theaters here Nov. 14.

'Seven Days’ Offers Gripping Suspense

By Lee Hyo-won

Staff Reporter


Kim Yun-jin plays the role of a lawyer who must safely get her abducted child back in “Seven Days.”

"Seven Days'' just may be what audiences have all been waiting for: a great homegrown crime thriller. With a good serving of believable characters, a scoop of wholesome drama, and even a sprinkle of good humor, director/scripter Won Shin-yun whips together all the right ingredients to offer an edge of the seat experience.

The main plotline is fairly simple. Ji-yeon (Kim Yun-jin) is a hotshot lawyer who wins case after case. One day her daughter is kidnapped, and the abductor gives her seven days to win an impossible case ― to set free a man whose death sentence is practically set ― or else she will never see the child again.

The abductor orchestrates the perfect crime. He watches her every move and forces her to comply by outwitting the police. Ji-yeon has no time to break down because she must run around in a frenzy to get this case together.

To make things worse, those around her get in her way. Her friend Seong-yeol (Park Heui-soon), a less than perfect policeman, is too tangled up in his own mess to help her out. In the meantime, the prosecutor is a longtime rival who's determined to crush Ji-yeon and naturally gives her a hard time. Plus he's backed by a power-thirsty superintendent.

To top off our protagonist's misery, she faces moral a dilemma. Her client is charged with brutally murdering a young woman, with almost all evidence proving his guilt. When she meets the mother of the victim, her own motherly instincts surface.

But deeper into the investigation, dark secrets unravel one after another in a rhythmical fashion. The movie deals with some heavy issues ― drugs, violence, corruption and loopholes within the judicial system, but they add to the gripping drama rather than weigh it down. The crime investigation scene is delightfully reminiscent of "CSI,'' which is highly popular here.

These well thought-out subplots are in tune with the fast-paced beat of the movie, and even minor characters contribute to the intrigue.

The 126-minute running time goes by quickly as seven suffocating days tick by like a time bomb. The surprise ending is not contrived; rather, it hits you with a deep pang as you go with the suspenseful flow of the film, piecing together fragments of the case.

Actress Kim Yung-jin returns to the Korean screen for the first time in two years. The star of "Lost'' gives a compelling performance with her screaming and running around, which is done with tasteful moderation. She manages to keep her cool by finding the right balance as a distraught mother and elite lawyer. Kim gives life to one strong-willed woman with a high emotional quotient ― a three-dimensional heroine that is quite rare in Korean cinema.

Park Heui-soon also deserves a pat on the back as a grumbling police officer, who walks the fine line between a thug and officer. Kim Yun-jin complemented the actor as a "prepared star,'' and one can surely expect to see more of Park in the future.

Be warned, however, that the shaky hand-held camerawork may leave some feeling a bit nauseous.

The dark side of the script

November 14, 2007


Director Won Shin-yeon By Yang Yeong-suk

Director Won Shin-yeon, 38, is back with the thriller “Seven Days.” The story is about coldhearted female lawyer and mother Ji-yeon (played by “Lost” star Kim Yun-jin) who is trying to get a murderer on death row acquited within seven days in order to rescue her abducted daughter.

Won took over the project after another writer-director backed out. He immediately saw the potential of the script and got the movie into production. But filming proved to be a challenge.

“I was short on production costs,” Won said. “We had to take a lot of shortcuts.”

A stuntman and martial arts director for almost 10 years, Won used more artistic means to compensate for the lack of expensive action sequences that the film demanded. This meant finding different ways to encapsulate the action. In the original scripts, one chase scene required 100 cars in 12 lanes of traffic. That wasn’t feasible, so the camera units just shot live street scenes and used that footage instead.

“There are no strict rules in filmmaking. I do what fits best,” he said, which is not surprising. Won is a self-taught director who has not received any formal film education. He started out in films in 2005 with the horror flick “Scary Hair,” but his involvement in filmmaking goes back to 2002 when he received the top prize at the Korea Film Awards for producing “Bread and Milk.” He later won the screenplay prize for writing “A Bloody Aria” (2006).

Seven Days, which opens today, is Won’s third full-length feature. This movie was also shot using Won’s philosophy of filming: no set rules. Won used around 3,800 shots to heighten the tension, the highest number in Korean movie history. In comparison, “The War of Flower” (2006) had 2,300, and the Hollywood-made “Bourne Ultimatum” used around 600 for the car chase sequences. Two to three cameras were running simultaneously to capture enough action for the editor to create the level of drama and action that the director required.

“It’s best to write and shoot as many scenes as possible,” Won said. His own stance and belief in the filmmaking process helps him compensate for his lack of formal training in the business.

Kim Yu-jin gave him her full support during the shoot, accepting a role in the film without hesitation. Won e-mailed Kim the script, and in no time at all she flew back to Korea from Hawaii. Casting Kim was the best choice, Won said.

“The role is tough. She has to play the mother of an abducted child who is trying to achieve the impossible [acquit the killer],” Won said. “But she was so absorbed in her character that she continued to cry even after we’d finished shooting an emotionally charged scene.” Her skill as an actress tap into a deep reserve of emotion, Won said.

Part of the intrigue for Kim was the twist in the tale at the end of the film, although Won says the twist shouldn’t be seen as the main purpose of the film. “It’s pretty obvious who the abductor is, but having the twist keeps the audience hooked,” he said. The tension lasts until the last court scene. “The case is actually based on a real-life story. I wanted the movie to be as realistic as possible,” Won said. The director was also keen to portray what he believes to be Korea’s lax legal system.

Having released a thriller, some fans want Won to make an action film next, showcasing his skills as a former stuntman and martial artist. But Won hesitates. He feels that he doesn’t yet know enough about what makes people tick and how society works. Right now, he is still learning about people, their emotions and their stories. “I want to depict the darker and more isolated aspects of society,” he said.

After Success in America, Actress Kim Yoon-jin Charts a New Path Back in Korea


The peculiar boom in abduction-themed movies in Korea is about is about to get a new twist. Most such movies have depicted parents as weak and helpless, but “Seven Days” is quite different. In it, a single mother whose only child is abducted by a stranger doesn’t give up, but puts up a fight; this is a new kind of character for Korean audiences.

Another element drawing attention to the movie is its leading actress Kim Yoon-jin, in the role of the defiant single mother. Her first movie “Shiree” represented a step forward for Korean cinema, but Kim had to face the bitter failure of other movies. In the American scene, she’s perhaps best know for her role on the hit drama “Lost.” This success catapulted her to the status of an actress representing Korea—ironically to many, she was more successful in the United States than in Korea.

“Lost is indeed a great drama, but because of its popularity, my image is becoming more and more weak, sensitive and submissive,” Kim said. “It is the strong energetic woman who gets important role in America, and it is vice versa is Korea.”

Because her role in “Seven Days” was very unique, Kim said it was a challenge. There have been many different abduction movies, most depicting a weak mother, so Kim swore off all such movies in preparation for the role. Having never been in such a situation in real life made it even harder to imagine and act, she said.

In the past, Kim was often criticized by Korean viewers for actually misrepresenting Korea, something that deeply concerned her. Despite the typical drama making process, which offered very little room for her to make changes, she managed to adapt and her image is now powerful enough to regularly fill theaters.

Hollywood Plans Remake of Korea's "Seven Days"


The rights to the Korean thriller “Seven Days” were recently gobbled up by Summit Entertainment, which plans to start filming in 2008 for an eventual U.S. release. Prime Entertainment, distributor of the film which just opened in Korea on Wednesday, agreed to sell the copyright for a reported price of six figures and said it was the highest price yet for the rights to a Korean movie.

“Seven Days” is about a single mother whose only child is kidnapped by a stranger. But Ji-yon is also an undefeated and charismatic lawyer, admired her success; so when the kidnapper demands that she defend a convicted murderer in court in order to save her daughter, she fights back.

“Seven Days” has received particular attention for being actress Yun-Jin Kim’s comeback movie, following a slump in her career in Korea and success in America on the TV drama “Lost.” Fans are eager for a repeat of the success of her previous Korean hit, “Shiri,” which left a strong impression in Koreans’ minds, especially now that she has made a name for herself in American entertainment.

Summit Entertainment also produced “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” in 2005 and is a well known entertainment company world-wide. According to Prime Entertainment, Summit Entertainment is now planning to spend 30 million dollars on their remake of “Seven Days” and to penetrate the European market.

A Grueling 'Seven Days' for Kim Yun-jin


Kim Yun-jin smiles for reporters at a press premiere late last month of her new movie 'Seven Days.'

“Seven Days,” starring “Lost” star Kim Yun-jin is getting an explosive response. With a fast-paced storyline and a complicated plot, the movie released on Nov. 14 appeals especially to movie fans in their 20s. Overseas markets have also shown interest: at the American Film Market recently, U.S. production firm Summit Entertainment, the maker of popular movies such as “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” (2005) and “Vanilla Sky” (2001) snapped up the right to a remake for US$1 million. It plans to spend $30 million on the Hollywood version.

Kim Yun-jin recalls the moment when she was offered the lead during shooting of “Lost” in Hawaii. At first, she says, she didn’t think she could take the offer due to the tight shooting schedule for the drama series. “I printed out the screenplay, just to give it a shot. But once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. I finished reading the last page standing beside the printer and decided to take the offer immediately.”

In the movie, Kim plays a top lawyer who has to fight against a kidnapper to rescue her daughter. She has seven days to swap her daughter for a convicted murderer. “The leading character is unusually strong for a Korean movie; that’s why she’s so attractive,” Kim says. The heroine pushes ahead with her impossible mission to release a murderer on death row rather in the style of Hollywood warriors like Jodie Foster and Sigourney Weaver. Kim’s charismatic performance and explosive presence are instantly riveting. “Once the camera is on, I never lose my concentration for a moment,” she says.

To maximize the speed, director Won Shin-yeon shot a large amount of scenes with three cameras. That did not allow Kim to consider reactions from her co-stars and required her to perform impeccably at all times. The fast pace of shooting was exhausting. “I got completely worn out while shooting a running scene in mid-summer. But I didn’t feel it was too much, because we all believed that Won will make a great movie,” Kim recalls.

Kim Yun-jin, winner of the best actress award at the 2002 Cheongryong (Blue Dragon) Film Awards for her role in “Deep Loves,” suddenly upped sticks and went to the U.S. in 2003, and there she made the rounds of Hollywood agencies with her portfolio by herself.

She says she can cool-headedly give up anything when she comes to the conclusion that it doesn’t work. But if she decides to do something, she puts it into action without fail. Despite the worries of her acquaintances, she did not quit in her efforts to become a star in the U.S. and eventually she established a worldwide name for herself in “Lost.” But Kim says she has not forgotten her Korean fans or that her starting point was Chungmuro, Korea’s Hollywood. Asked whether she has achieved her dream, Kim says she is just getting ready for another leap forward.

7 Days

Sebeun Deijeu

(South Korea) A Prime Entertainment release and presentation, in association with FiTech Venture Partners and KS/JS/OS Bank, of a Prime Entertainment production, in association with Yoon & Joon Film. (International sales: Prime, Seoul.) Produced by Lee Seo-yeol. Executive producer, Kim Sang-il. Directed by Won Shin-yeon. Screenplay, Yun Je-gu; adaptation, Won.

With: Kim Yun-jin, Kim Mi-suk, Park Heui-sun, Lee Jeon-heon, Jang Hang-seon, Yang Jin-woo, Lee Ra-hye, Oh Gwang-rok, Ok Ji-yeong, Choi Myeong-su.


A piece of cinematic sleight-of-hand that provides plenty of passing thrills, "7 Days" is at least two too many movies rolled into one. Part kidnap drama, part murder mystery, part psychodrama and part legal-eagle yarn, over-egged script gets by with punchy visuals and some strong supporting perfs but leaves the viewer feeling emotionally and intellectually shortchanged. Released locally mid-November, pic looks unlikely to replicate its peppy take of $14 million in other territories, though there's plenty enough good material here for a U.S. makeover to score, following Summit Entertainment's purchase of remake rights at AFM.

Starting off with a socko pre-credits sequence and main title straight out of the "CSI" handbook, pic has hotshot defense lawyer Yu Ji-yeon (Kim Yun-jin, "Shiri," TV's "Lost") finding a note that her 8-year-old daughter, Eun-yeong (Lee Ra-hye), has been kidnapped. Flashback to the day before shows how mom took part in a school student-and-parent relay race with Eun-yeong, who went missing afterward.

Captions check off the days as Ji-yeon learns that the kidnapper doesn't want ransom money. Instead, with her lawyerly smarts, she has to get off a sleazebag who's been found guilty of murder, and whose case is coming to appeal next Wednesday. By now, she has four days to do the seemingly impossible or she'll never see her daughter again.

In a seemingly open-and-shut case, Jeong Cheol-jin (Choi Myeong-su), was convicted of the bloody slaughter of an art student a month earlier. Ji-yeon teams up with maverick cop (and old friend) Kim Seong-yeol (Park Heui-sun) to reinvestigate the crime, in the meantime receiving threatening cat-and-mouse calls from the kidnapper.

Crowded plot, which involves drugs, a high-level cover-up and possible police connivance, is further complicated by Seong-yeol being under investigation by internal affairs and crises like Eun-yeong needing emergency medication for a tuna allergy. Despite pic's title, most of the story is crammed into three days, further stretching credibility.

Final two reels work overtime to bring all the various storylines together, -- and even then the plot doesn't hold up under close investigation.

Borrowing heavily from the visual palette of American crime series, plus pics like "Seven," helmer Won Shin-yeon ("A Bloody Aria") constructs several adrenaline-filled setpieces, pumped up by Kim Jun-seong's propulsive score. But as the red herrings mount while the characters' psychological development stays in neutral, the leaps of logic become more and more exposed.

Tech package is up to the usual high South Korean standards; however, the nervy camera style and editing progressively work against the human drama rather than support it.

In the central role, Kim Yun-jin is just OK, never really gaining the viewer's empathy for a complex character who's clearly used to bending the law for her own career. Though onscreen virtually the whole time, she's outclassed in individual scenes by flavorsome playing from vet Kim Mi-suk as the dead girl's mother, Choi as the convicted killer and Oh Gwang-rok in a crucial supporting role as a gangster client.

References in the script to "Thursday's Child" refer to the original title of the pic, which had a choppy production history. Shooting originally began in late 2006 under scripter Yun Je-gu, with actress Kim Seon-ah ("S-Diary") in the lead; after a hiatus, during which Kim left the project, shooting resumed in 2007 with Kim Yun-jin in the lead and Won directing.

Camera (color, widescreen), Choi Yeong-hwan; editor, Shin Min-geong; music, Kim Jun-seong; production designer, Jeon Su-ah; costume designer, Kim Jae-ah; sound (Dolby Digital), Lee Eun-ju, Lee Seung-cheol, Lee Seong-jin; visual effects supervisor, Jeon Geon-ik; visual effects, DTI; action directors, Kim Min-su, Shim Jae-weon; assistant director Hwang Geon-wook.

Complex thrillers lead the pack in annual film awards

June 11, 2008


A scene from “The Chaser,” above, and right, a scene from “Seven Days,” both films that are nominated for best film as well as best director at the Daejong Film Awards this year. [JoongAng Ilbo]

The biggest event in the Korean film industry is back.

On June 27, the 45th Daejong Film Awards will take place at COEX, southern Seoul. This year one of the Korean films under the spotlight is “The Chaser,” a film about a serial murderer.

The film drew audiences of more than 5 million, and as of April it is the most successful Korean film of 2008, according to the Korean Film Council.

“Forever the Moment” trailed behind The Chaser with over 4 million viewers.

The Chaser currently is nominated in 11 categories, hoping to win the hearts of film critics as well.

This year thrillers are garnering the most interest in Chungmuro, Korea’s Hollywood.

Currently the top three films on the most nominated lists are from this genre.

“Seven Days,” a thriller about a child who gets kidnapped, is second in the number of nominations.

The film is nominated in all 10 categories. “Shadows in the Palace,” a thriller that takes place within the palace of the Joseon Dynasty, is nominated in eight categories.

Compared with comedies, dramas or action films, thrillers lacked quality.

“Since ‘Memories of Murder’ in 2003, hardly any satisfying thrillers have been made,” said the film critic Jeon Chan-il.

“The success of these three films is good news [for the film industry] as it shows that a single genre can captivate audiences,” Jeon continued.

Thrillers are also notoriously difficult to pull off since the plots are highly complex, Jeon added.

Another point of interest is that The Chaser and Shadows in the Palace were directed by rookies who made their debut as film directors through these movies.

Seven Days is Won Shin-yeon’s third feature film. He previously directed “The Wig” and “A Bloody Aria.”

Won was chosen recently to direct “V,” a film about Korea’s most beloved robot, Taekwon V.

“Until now the Korean film industry was led by artistic directors such as Park Chan-wook and Hong Sang-soo,” said Kim Bong-seok, a film critic. “It is interesting and positive how Korean commercial films are gaining strength.”

Film fans here are currently fascinated by the best male actor award. Those vying for the award are Kim Yoon-seok, who plays the corrupt cop in The Chaser; Ha Jeong-woo, who plays the serial killer in the same movie; Song Kang-ho, who starred in the film “Secret Sunshine (Milyang)”; and Im Chang-jeong, who plays a scout who tries to recruit Korea’s famous pitcher, Sun Dong-yeul, in the black comedy “Scout.”

Kim from The Chaser won the best supporting actor award last year for his role as the devious card player in “The War of Flower.”

Competition for the best female actor award is expected to be fierce. One of the nominees is Kim Hye-sook, 53.

Kim has been nominated for best lead actress for her role as a mother in love with her daughter’s boyfriend in the low-budget film “Viva Love.”

She is also on the list for best supporting actress for her role as an ex-convict in the film “Open City.”

She could take home two awards, or nothing at all.

One disappointment of the film awards show is that many of the movies nominated for best film are also nominated in the best director category.

While the movie The Chaser is nominated for best film, its director Na Hong-jin is nominated for best director.

Secret Sunshine is also nominated for best film and its director Lee Chang-dong is up for best director.

Happiness, nominated for best film, has its director Heo Jin-ho on the list for best film.

It is the same for the film “The Happy Life,” and the director Lee Joon-ik as well as “Seven Days” and its director Won Shin-yeon.

Last year a low-budget film, “The Birth of a Family,” won best film.

The Daejong Film Awards are jointly organized by the JoongAng Ilbo, SBS, Korean Film Council and Daesung Group.

The award ceremony starts at 8:40 p.m. and runs for two hours. The show is broadcast live on SBS.

The evaluation is made by 10 movie experts and 50 members of the public.

The evaluation of experts will account for 60 percent of the vote.

There are 19 categories for the awards show, including best acting and best technology.

The main vote will take place between June 16 and 27 at Seoul Cinema in Jongno, downtown Seoul.

Actor Kim Yun-seok won best actor for "The Chaser".

South Korea's esteemed 45th Daejong (Grand Bell) Film Festival held in southern Seoul, showcased the latest local box office trends, with its stronghold of original thrillers, stylistic period pieces and experimental projects. While superstars grabbed the limelight as expected, hitherto overlooked veteran actors and young debutant directors shined the most, suggesting that blatant star power, be it a reputed director or ravishing screen beauty, don't always guarantee ticket sales or awards.

The red carpet event took place outside the COEX Convention Hall in a sea of blinding camera flashes as glamorous cineastes filed in. Screen beauties like Han Chae-young, Park Jin-hee and Shin Ae were elegant in cleavage-bearing, long evening gowns while others such as Kim Yun-jin and Ko Ara chose mini-dresses to show off their figures.

Actress Kim A-jung, who won last year's award for Best Actress ("200 Pounds Beauty''), and popular announcer Choe Gi-hwan hosted the show. To add more sparkle to the star-studded event, pop group the Wonder Girls took to the stage to deliver bubbly dance music.

"The Chaser,'' the feature film debut of young director Na Hong-jin and the highest grossing film this season, took the festival by storm by winning five of 11 nominations, including those for Best Picture and Director. For Actor Kim Yun-seok, who has endlessly displayed solid acting through supporting roles, his first leading role won him both the Best Actor prize and the BMW Popularity Award. The 40-year-old dazzled the screen as a sullen, disheartened former cop opposite hot young actor Ha Jung-woo.


Actress Kim Yun-jin won best actress for "Seven Days"

Another murder thriller "Seven Days,'' the latest homegrown film starring "Lost'' star Kim Yun-jin, won three of 10 nominations including Best Actress, Sound Effects and Editing. Like "The Chaser,'' it enjoyed critical acclaim and high sales at the box office earlier this year.

Awards for Best Supporting Actor and Actress went to Yoo Jun-sang ("Return'') and Kim Hae-sook ("Open City''), respectively. The latter star showed off a wild, charismatic streak as an ex-convict in "Open City,'' breaking away from her usual TV roles as a housewife. The 52-year-old, sexy in a sleek black dress on the night, also received attention for her role as a mother who falls in love with her daughter's former fiance. The romance film "Viva Love'' won director Oh Jeom-gyun the title of Best New Director and Best Screenplay.

Korean cinema and broadcasting have seen a high tide of stylistic period pieces depicting lives and loves from the Joseon Kingdom (1392-1910). The befittingly named court intrigue "Shadows in the Palace'' by debutant director Kim Mee-jung won the award for Best Lighting while "Hwang Jin Yi,'' starring actress Song Hye-kyo as the famed poet and dancer, received prizes for Best Music and Costume.

"M,'' celebrated director Lee Myung-se's striking, surreal story starring Gang Dong-won, received the Best Visuals Award. "Miracle of a Giving Fool'' starring Ha Ji-won and Cha Tae-hyun, a hit among popular cartoon-turned-movies, won the public vote for Best Hallyu (Korean Wave) Movie.

Actor Daniel Henney, who recently finished shooting his Hollywood debut in the "X-Men'' franchise, was named Best New Actor ("My Father'') and model-turned-actress Han Ye-seul won Best New Actress. A special honor went to Yoo Dong-hoon, president of the Korea Scenario Writers Association, for his lifetime contribution to Korean cinema.

Stellar Event Casts Dark Shadows

But brightness is always accompanied by dark shadows. Inefficient organization prolonged the running time of the event, and the awardees did not receive sufficient time to express their happiness.

The preceding film festival inviting moviegoers to watch movies and meet cineastes at the Seoul World Cup Stadium, May 24-28, was popular and was extended until the 30th. However, the award ceremony itself drew a rather disappointing level of public participation. The annual event recorded a relatively low viewer rating of 11.9 percent through its live broadcasting on SBS.

The ceremony caused disorder in the Samseong-dong area where roads were blocked off, and there was sharp criticism of its overly commercial tactic of charging people to vote for the Hallyu Movie Award.

Kim Yun-jin Wins Best Actress Prize at Daejong Awards

Kim Yun-jin won the Best Actress award for her role in the film "Seven Days", a story of a child abduction, at the Annual Daejong Film Awards held Friday at the COEX Convention Hall. Kim beat out Jeon Do-yeon who has won eight best actress awards at home and abroad so far, including one for her part in "Secret Sunshine" at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival last year.

Filled with emotion, Kim could barely speak as she accepted the award onstage. "I'm stunned to receive this award," she said. "I'm honored to have been nominated along with Jeon and the other actresses. This award is on behalf of all the staff and crew of 'Seven Days.' I thank director Won Shin-yeon, who lied to me that I was the only actress to take on the role." She thanked all the staff and colleagues by name and lastly dedicated the prize to her mother.

Kim also won at the Saturn Awards in the U.S. and the Asian Actress award at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival for her role in the hit U.S. TV series "Lost." In 2002 she won the Best Actress prize at Korea's Blue Dragon Awards for her work in "Milae."

Meanwhile, "The Chaser", the number one Korean blockbuster so far this year, drawing five million moviegoers, was the day's top winner with six awards, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor.

'Seven Days': Fast and Furious

A slick, Hollywood-style thriller will satisfy Kim Yun-jin fans

Kyu Hyun Kim (qhyunkim)

Published 2008-10-01 10:16 (KST)


©2008 Prime Entertainment

A hotshot defense lawyer Yu Ji-yeon (Kim Yun-jin, TV's "Lost") learns to her horror that someone has kidnapped her daughter. Instead of a ransom, the kidnapper demands that Ji-yeon defend a vicious rapist-murderer to an acquittal at an upcoming trial. She has only seven days to locate her daughter, or, conversely, prove that the prosecuted murderer is innocent.

The only help around is her thuggish cop friend (Park Hee-soon, "Boss X File," "Antarctic Journal"), while a corrupt prosecuting attorney (Jeong Dong-hwan) and the victim's headstrong mother (Kim Mi-suk, "Marathon") stand in her way.

"Seven Days" turned out to be the biggest box office draw in the fourth quarter of 2007 in Korea, enthusiastically embraced by the moviegoers, even though critical reaction was more ambivalent. The film's MTV-on-speed editing style and narrative rhythm received some criticism, but I don't feel like slamming "Seven Days" just because it allegedly emulates Hollywood blockbusters or American TV dramas ("mi-deu," as colloquially known in Korea).

Should the director Won Shin-yeon ("The Wig," "A Bloody Aria") have followed the examples of, say, Oliver Assayas and made something like "Boarding Gate" or "Demonlover" instead? Perish the thought. Besides, "Seven Days" is genuinely well put-together: its technical proficiency is never in doubt, right down to the strikingly realistic makeup effects on the victim's dead body. It certainly is director Won's best film so far.

Unfortunately, the movie is riddled with illogical plot points, a few of which threaten to negate the entire premise. For one, given the "loophole" in the Korean legal system revealed in the climax, there was no real reason to kidnap Ji-yeon's daughter, since he/she had the key evidence allowing Ji-yeon to activate that loophole in his/her possession all along.

And of course, the culprit's motivation for putting Ji-yeon through that much ordeal is, charitably put, crazy. Oh, I forgot, the culprit IS insane. "Seven Days" also flirts with criticism of the legal system, but wisely decides to let it peter out: it certainly doesn't slide into a bizarre "left-wing" vigilante fantasy like "Princess Aurora."

Besides, if there ever was a God-given antidote to the macho Korean directors with pretensions to being left-wing social critics, it's Kim Yun-jin. Even though Ji-yeon's character arc is written, by director Won and the scribe Yun Je-goo, in such a way to illustrate her "re-discovery" of "motherhood" over the course of the film, Kim, through her radiant charisma and super-charged but finely tuned acting, blows all this ideological claptrap into smithereens.

She establishes Ji-yeon from the get-go as a warm, caring but sensible professional woman. Kim carries the film on her shoulders like a female Atlas and makes sure that it appears a lot better than it actually is. (I do think it is about time, though, that she demands something other than these I-am-so-sorry-I-was-less-than-good-mother roles from Korean producers) In this she is ably assisted by an excellent supporting cast, including Kim Mi-suk, Park Hee-soon, Choi Myoung-soo (memorable in "Les Formidables"), as the equal-parts pathetic and disgusting murder suspect, and Oh Kwang-rok ("Spring Bears Love"), as Ji-yeon's humorously genteel gangster client.

"Seven Days" is a slick and calculated thriller, all right, so those constitutionally unable to like this kind of movies need not bother. It's really not as clever or poignant as its makers probably think it is, but it may make a surprisingly strong impression for casual fans of Korean cinema, and is, needless to say, a must for Kim Yun-jin fans.

Review From SEOUL Magazine

"Seven Days" directed by Won Sin-yeon, is a Korean crime thriller film starring Kim Yoonjin, star of hit American series "Lost" This movie is viewed as a Korean version of the popular American TV series "CSI" In the movie, Yoo Jiyeon (Kim Yoonjin) is a successful, prominent lawyer and single mom of a 7-year-old girl. Yoo¡¯s successful career puts her in the spotlight, but makes it hard to spend much time with her daughter, which makes her feel that she is not a good mother. To please her daughter, Yoo comes to her school's annual sport meeting and participates in a relay race. After the race, she finds out her daughter is missing. Later, she receives a phone call from her daughter's abductor who demands as a ransom of her daughter the freeing of a convicted murderer, Jung Chul-jin, who is in the final seven days of his trial. In order to save her daughter's life, she will have to prove the killer is innocent.

Yoo's desperate struggles and investigations to find evidence to prove the convicted killer's innocence unfold speedily in the seven days. From the beginning to the end, the movie has a tense atmosphere and heightened suspense, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats and guessing about who the murderer and kidnapper are. In the latter half of the movie, astonishing twists and turns await viewers. Solid, riveting storylines, exceptional directing and acting, and heartrending drama make this movie stand out.

Through powerful and charismatic acting, Kim Yoon-jin perfectly plays various roles of a thorough, competent lawyer and a mother with strong maternal instincts. In particular, her inner acting is exquisite. In addition, stellar acting of other characters including co-star Kim Seol-yeong (Park Hee-sun) appearing as her friend and a policeman makes this movie more intriguing. Unexpected twists, fast-paced beat and quick and splendid scenes add extraordinary fun to the movie as a crime thriller and is sure to captivate viewers.

The fast-paced development of the movie makes you feel like you're riding on a non-stop rollercoaster. However, the movie might have better served audiences with more clarification of the relationship among the murderer, abductor and the one who masterminds the kidnapping. It's no wonder why Hollywood's Summit Entertainment bought the rights to this well-made movie for $1 million. If you're craving for a special Korean crime thriller film different from others, "Seven Days" is a great choice for you.
