  1. April 18, 2019 Jeon Do-yeon honored with achievement award from Italian film fest SEOUL, April 18 (Yonhap) -- South Korean actress Jeon Do-yeon has been chosen to receive a lifetime achievement award at an Italian film festival. Jeon will be awarded the Golden Mulberry for Lifetime Achievement Award on the opening night of the 21st Udine Far East Film Festival (FEFF) on April 26, according to the FEFF Web site. "She is the greatest Korean actress of all time," it said. "It's a queen, a diva, an icon. It is simply Jeon Do-yeon. Need more?" East Asian movie heavyweights, like Jackie Chan, Joe Hisaishi and Brigitte Lin are past winners of the award. Jeon's movie, "Birthday," directed by Lee Jong-eon and co-starring Seol Kyung-gu, will open the 2019 FEFF, which is scheduled to run from April 26 through May 4. FEFF is one of the largest film festivals credited with introducing Asian films in Europe. Since her debut, with "Contact" in 1997, Jeon has earned universal critical acclaim. She won the best actress award at the 60th Cannes Film Festival for her role in "Secret Sunshine" in 2007. This photo, provided by Management Soop, shows South Korean actress Jeon Do-yeon.

  2. April 16, 2019 Interview: Nam Joo-hyuk, "The Love Scene With Han Ji-min Was Short But Affectionate" Source: Nate via HanCinema.net / Photos: MediaSR Nam Joo-hyuk played almost 3 roles in "The Light in Your Eyes"; Lee Joon-ha standing on the cliff of despair, Hye-ja's husband who died at such a young age, and Hye-ja's doctor who looks just like her late husband. He worked with the Hye-ja (Kim Hye-ja) in her 70s and Hye-ja (Han Ji-min) in her 20s. Nam Joo-hyuk had to travel 50 years back and forth in time for this act. "Joon-ha who struggled in the year 2019, Joon-ha the public relations officer, Joon-ha the doctor and Joon-ha from the 70s; I played almost four different characters. I didn't want them to all be different. I tried to make them seem like one person", said the actor. "I think someone like Joon-ha exists. So does Hye-ja. That helped me to concentrate more". The romance with Han Ji-min's character was short and painful. About working with her, Nam Joo-hyuk said, "I didn't meet her much, so maybe that's why the viewers thought that we were much more affectionate and yearning for each other. Otherwise, we got along pretty well on set". Is he regretful that the romance wasn't sweet enough? "Romance wasn't the key in this drama so no. I did think the couple should be very loving. I learned a lot from Han Ji-min. She made me think I want to be that kind of person". With Kim Hye-ja, a senior actor, Nam Joo-hyuk said, "It was an unbelievable experience working with her". He also said "It was an honor" a couple of times. "Just watching her on the set was unbelievable. She told me never to lose focus, and to work hard to become a good actor". Apparently, director Kim Seok-yoon was the atmosphere maker of the set. He was 80% responsible for the laughter. "He's a great leader. When we had dinner for the first time he said he'd 'heal' me and it was exactly what I expected the story to be". "While playing Joon-ha I realized there was something he didn't let go of. It may have seemed like he was only alive because he couldn't die but actually, he was struggling to be happy. That is how he managed to survive, and when nothing happens is what happiness is for him". Nam Joo-hyuk's next project is "School Nurse Ahn Eun-young" on Netflix. He meets with Jung Yoo-mi here. He said, "I just have to do my best and make sure I don't regret it". April 15, 2019 [Interview] Nam Joo-hyuk Asked If He Sold His Soul for Acting Prowess in "The Light in Your

"Parasite" is Bong's seventh feature film and first Korean-language movie in 10 years. The flick pictures a working-class family that gets entangled in an unexpected incident after the son has a chance to access a wealthy, elite world. Song Kang-ho, who plays a main role in the movie, collaborates with Bong for the fourth time, following "Memories of Murder," "The Host" and "Snowpiercer." "I want to share this pleasure with all the actors and the filming staff and myself who immersed themselves in shooting 'Parasite' during last year's unusually searing summer," director Bong said of the nomination. "I am honored and thrilled to present this film capturing the vivid image of the era in the heat of the Cannes Film Festival," he said. Another Korean film, "The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil" by director Lee Won-tae, was invited to the film festival for its non-competitive Midnight Screenings category.
