Like I said, summer is the time for horror. First we had the high school-set Suicide Pact; then Lee Seo-jin’s high school-set drama Soul. Now it’s (the very unhorror-ly titled) Yoga School [요가학원] — although you wouldn’t know it from these photos from the film’s open set day, would you?

The story centers around five beautiful women who harbor different insecurities and seek out a mysterious yoga school that promises undying beauty. The film is directed by Yoon Jae-yeon, who directed the third Memento Mori film Wishing Stairs.

Yoga School features seven actresses, led by Eugene (Romantic Island) and Park Han-byul (Fantasy Couple), as well as Jo Eun-ji (Forever the Moment), Cha Soo-yeon (The World They Live In), Kim Hye-na (Unstoppable Wedding), Lee Young-jin (Antique Bakery), and Hwang Seung-eon.

Yoga School opens this summer.

The film held a press conference and opened its set to reporters on June 2 at its filming location in Kyeonggi Province, which featured its stars in a yoga session:

Eugene plays a television shopping network host with a “Superwoman” complex.

Expected Date of Showing: August 20

THE CASTS:

EUGENE KIM

Yoga School Movie had its second press conference on July 21, 2009. The casts attended the said event. Main cast Eugene and Park Hanbyul caught the attention of the press. They were astonishingly beautiful.

Eugene wore a sexy black dress. Park hanbyul caught much of the attention of the press not just because of her dress but also with the her love affair with the Kpop Sensation Se7en.

The other cast were presentable and seems to be excited with the movie.

The movie will be showing this coming August 20, 2009.

Movie Review

All packaging and little substance in Korean horror flick 'Yoga'

By Shin Hae-in

SEOUL, Aug. 13 (Yonhap) -- Only a rare few are gifted with natural beauty. For the majority, the quest for stunning beauty could mean just about anything from starving oneself for days to jabbing needles in one's face: an insidious, at times deadly, obsession that often goes ignored by the general public.

Taking a well-timed stab at South Korea's excessive social emphasis placed on female beauty, "Yoga (Yoga Hakwon)" attempts to come up with something original in the horror genre.

20090813092557_bodyfile.jpg

Beneath its grandeur -- encapsulated by six lean, yoga-fit beauties -- however, the movie lacks the acumen to penetrate the underlying issues driving hundreds of thousands to go under the needle each year in this beauty-making promise land.

Threatened by a younger and prettier newcomer at work, Hyo-jeong (Eugene), once a popular hostess at a local home shopping channel, visits a secluded yoga institute recommended by an old classmate who supposedly transformed herself from an ugly duckling into a gorgeous swan after completing the institute's special program.

Signing up for a one-week course, Hyo-jeong meets four other young women -- all insecure and obsessive about their looks -- hoping to get a tip on "everlasting beauty" promised by yoga master Nani (Cha Soo-yeon).

Explaining that only one among the five will be given the secret of ultimate and immortal beauty, the expressionless Nani lays out five rules the women must not break during the course: No eating after mealtime, no showers within an hour after class, no looking in the mirror, no leaving the building and no phone calls.

Driven by their desire to win the coveted prize, the women endure the rigorous training and strive to keep the rules despite a growing sense that something out of the ordinary is going on in the center.

The training ultimately becomes a life and death struggle, however, as those found breaking the rules begin to disappear one by one and strange visions and voices envelope the building.

20090813092613_bodyfile.jpg

Directed by Yun Jae-yeon, the creator of high school horror "Memento Mori 3: Wishing Stairs (2003)," "Yoga" does succeed in capturing audiences' attention, particularly through the performances of the stunning actresses who went through real yoga training and strict dieting during the one-year filming period.

"The hardest part was not eating," actress Park Han-byeol, who plays former idol star Yeon-ju in the film, said during the press conference after the movie's preview Wednesday. "I felt sorry for the character and was drawn closer to her as I was to really live her life during the filming."

Actress Kim Hye-na, who played cosmetic surgery-addict Yu-gyeong, said she "felt extremely saddened" over the women's effort to become beautiful.

"The movie might not be bloodcurdlingly scary, but it conveys a chilling message on what obsession to become beautiful can lead to," she said.

The movie also deserves credit for its eerie sound effects, a combination of deep yoga breathing and piercing screams that manages to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

Still, the overall story falls short of either scaring or drawing empathy from most audiences.

"Yoga," with a running-time of 98 minutes, will hit local theaters beginning Aug. 20.

Well the fact that it's not 'bloodcurdlingly scary' is good for me as I'm not a fan of horror flicks, but am a great fan of Eugene's haha.

I must watch it even if it means turning down the volume.

I've only been able to find it without subs, and the video encode seems to have some conflicts with my Mac. I've tried a lot of keywords on Google without success...how frustrating :(
