  2. Woah...this thread has moved so quickly its absolutely fantastic! !....Everytime I come back, I have to play catch up. ..just in case I missed something. ...great work guys, thank you for keeping this thread alive and well,  your  admiration and support is daebak awesome, appreciated as always, thank you....

    Just wanted to say that I watched "Train to Busan" two days ago and all I can say is O.M.G.....WOW!!!! So thrilling and exciting and on-the-edge-of-your-seat-emotional. .....how amazing was that....It was crazy-zombie-weird (and kudos to those zombie actors, they were so ummm real...). The story was sad, emotional, heartwrenching,  tearful, passionate,  psychological,  endearing,  warm and so powerful...What would you do to stay alive? What choices would you make?....Yah, so dramatic and unforgettable. ....

    Our GY was brilliant,  the emotions, the actions, the passion, the portrayal of a father who was devoted to his daughter and protected her unconditionally by sacrificing himself.... (sigh, sob sob....), it was truly outstanding. ..lovedlovedloved it... All of the cast were amazingly awesome and bravo to them too....Kim Soo-Ahn....wow, so sweet and innocent, fabulous absolutely! 

    IT was action-packed from the moment they boarded the KTX (gives me the shivers now, when I think of my trip to Busan on the KTX.....it will never be the same...lol)...brilliant work to all those involved in this amazing movie...kahmsamnida. .

    Looking forward now to Goblin and the release of " The Age of Shadows" in my country. ...love your work, so proud to be a fan.. GONG YOO FIGHTING! !!!!!

  4. @lkgy99....waooo, thank you so much for the  July 2016 - Marie Claire interview. ....

    A beautiful insight into a guy who works really really hard......a guy who, hardly takes time out to chill (or rather prefers to work), enjoys going home to the cat and exercises hard as a form of therapeutic response to balancing his life.....a guy who does not have SNS (because a lot of things can be distorted in different ways), and loves NBA basketball. ...OMG!!

    GY stated that he found acting (at times) painful, which saddens me because they can truly be so hard on themselves right. So, how can we as non-actors know this pain when it is human nature for eveyone to have high expectations and try so hard to achieve great things, and yet never be satisfied or even fail......it is hard yet I think for actors and actresses,  because they are performing and choosing different masks it is perhaps daunting for them because its way out of their comfort zone or norm....and the public views of fans can be so harsh and so amazing at the same time.....

    All I have to say is, GONG YOO, thank you for your great work and for staying healthy and happy in your mind, body and soul. All the ladies in the house continue to adore your craft and support your goals and efforts,  Bravo absolutely! Looking forward to seeing these fantastic movies, kahmsamnida GY FIGHTING! !!

    (South-Korean director Sang-ho Yeon’s Train to Busan is a zombie movie, but has a lot more to offer than standard living dead tropes. The film is in limited release now.)

    The least interesting part of Train to Busan, South-Korean director Sang-ho Yeon’s live-action directorial debut, a movie about zombies on a train, is the actual zombies. That’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with their realization, as they are frightening and deadly enough, and certainly pose an existential threat to the ever-diminishing number of surviving humans. But at this point in cinematic history, after decades of zombies on screens of all sizes, how much innovation can we expect in the undead universe? There are a few attempts at novelty here and there, where we learn what these particular creatures can and cannot do, but still, no wheels are reinvented. And yet Train to Busan is still a solid action thriller, thanks to a strong cast and a well-structured script that takes its time introducing us to the situation and the characters. If the stakes are meaningful, it’s because of the people, and not the monsters. Each death counts.

    This is not Yeon’s first stab at the zombie genre. Until now a director of several animated features, he releasedSeoul Stationwhich has a similar premise to his latest film, earlier this year. Though I cannot comment on that movie, I find his live-action mise-en-scène and direction of actors, here, very impressive. Little by little, we are drawn into the particular details of his protagonists’ lives, and when they each start to fall, we feel their loss. I am also in awe of the many ways in which he keeps the action interesting inside of the claustrophobic environment of a train compartment. Perhaps – who knows? – that’s a Korean specialty, given the masterful way Joon-ho Bong handled a similar set-up in Snowpiercer. Since this specific train is not dressed up to fit into the post-apocalyptic design of Bong’s film, what Yeon achieves in a much more pedestrian space deserves even more credit. It’s fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled action at its best.


    The movie begins, after a chilling prelude in which we learn of a toxic leak that may or may not be about to spread something awful, in Seoul, in the office, and then home, of hedge-fund manager Seok-woo (an excellent Yoo Gong), a thirty-something divorcé who wants sole custody of his young daughter, Su-an. A distracted father, he fails miserably at finding Su-an an interesting birthday present, and when she confesses that all she wants to do is see her mother, he reluctantly agrees to accompany her to Busan. Just as their train is about to depart, a desperate, bleeding woman stumbles on board, unseen by the conductors, fleeing an attack of some sort. Su-an (a cute Su-an Kim) is the only one to see the platform overrun by zombies as the train pulls away. Soon, however, thanks to our injured friend, the virus will spread on the train, and in the confined spaces, there’s no place to flee.

    By the time the film is done, we have witnessed a lot of death and destruction, par for the course for this kind of genre. None of it feels gratuitous, however, as the director uses the situation as a way to tell a story about selflessness vs selfishness, rather than as an excuse to indulge in graphic violence. Sure, there’s blood – it’s a zombie movie, after all – and more than one train crash, but in an era often defined by the triumph of CGI over character, it’s a joy (despite the tragic story) to spend time in a universe populated by real people facing real danger.




    Well said, bravo absolutely! .......Sooooo excited about the interesting reviews out there....Good work FIGHTING! !

    Film Review: Train to Busan


    Seok-woo Suh (Gong Yoo), a busy Seoul-based fund manager whose job demands a broad streak of ruthlessness, is in the middle of a contentious divorce. He has primary custody of his young daughter Su-an (Su-an Kim), though most of the actual work of childcare is being done by his own mother. But Seok-woo agrees to take her to the port city of Busan, where his soon-to-be-ex lives, as a birthday treat, mostly because he made the spectacular gift-giving flub of buying Su-an a Wii, which she already has. In fact, he gave it to her. Recently. Plus, he missed her school recital. The only other thing she wants is to see her mommy on her birthday, even if she has to take the train alone. Rock, meet hard place.

    So at the crack of dawn, largely oblivious to the steady stream of emergency vehicles they pass en route to the station, they're on the KTX 101 train to Busan. Their fellow passengers include an excitable pregnant woman and her husband; a pair of middle-aged sisters; assorted businessmen; a high-school baseball team, their coach and perky head cheerleader, and miscellaneous students, families and couples.

    The last to board is a scruffy teenage girl, clearly sick but unnoticed because everyone is half-asleep, busy settling in or attending to passengers. So no one but the wide-eyed Su-an notices that chaos is breaking out in the station, though an officious passengerdoes draw a steward's attention to an apparently crazy man who's cowering in a bathroom muttering about everybody being dead. Meanwhile, the onboard TVs are abuzz with news of rioting in the streets ("In the old days they'd be re-educated," sniffs one of the sisters) and the scruffy teen, who has died and reanimated, goes on the rampage.

    It doesn't take a hardcore horror fan to know what's coming next, though such fans will have seen it before, notably in the 1972 Peter Cushing-Christopher Lee film Horror Express. That said, the beauty of using a train as the main location is that it's simultaneously claustrophobic and in constant motion, and writer-director Sang-ho Yeonmakes effective use of the space, which has both plusses and minuses for the trapped potential victims. On the one hand, individual cars are relatively defensible; on the other, once the doors are breached at one end, the only option is to run down a narrow corridor to the next car and whatever awaits there. But the real drama, as is always the case in siege movies, lies in how the besieged behave. Do they freak out or stay cool, look out for number one or try to help others, react to the immediate crisis or come up with a big-picture plan?

    There's plenty of all of the above to go around in Train to Busan, and the sheer volume of gnashing-jawed zombie action doesn't leave a great deal of room for character development. That Seok-woo gets the lion's share is hardly a surprise, but a handful of others have moments that keep the film from settling into a tedious series of bloody set-pieces, though there is plenty of blood to go around. The bone-cracking, convulsive contortions of the newly revived—who are new-school running zombies, rather than old-school shufflers—are seriously creepy, as is one throwaway shot of a zombie crawling through a compartment via the overhead luggage rack. Yeon's social commentary, which includes the by-now obligatory government assurances that these pesky outbreaks are under control juxtaposed with handheld news footage of snarling zombies wreaking havoc—doesn't stray far from the beaten path, but Train to Busan is good fun for those who like their fun seasoned with gory mayhem.



    You know what's amazing. ...when I was in Korea, I caught the KTX from Seoul to Busan....such a beautiful ride....and Im thinking,  what if there really were such things as zombies.......OMG!!!......Just the thought of it right.......YAH!!!

    Another smash hit right there.......lovelovelove it. ....FIGHTING!

    Lee Dong Wook Considers Joining Gong Yoo In Highly Anticipated Drama

    Lee Dong Wook Considers Joining Gong Yoo In Highly Anticipated Drama

    On May 27 it was revealed by a representative that actor Lee Dong Wook is currently considering taking part in a new drama, entitled “Goblin” (working title), by writer Kim Eun Sook. Star writer Kim Eun Sook is the creative writer behind hit dramas such as “Descendants of the Sun.” Lee Dong Wook’s role, if he takes the part, will be the grim reaper.

    Lee Dong Wook’s agency, King Kong Entertainment, stated, “We have received an offer from the production crew. We are reviewing the offer favorably.”

    It has been previously confirmed that actor Gong Yoo will participate in the drama. This his return to a TV drama in four years. Furthermore, Kim Go Eun is also considering the lead female role.

    The drama’s plot revolves around the story of a goblin and grim reaper who live together. The goblin needs a human bride to end his immortal life, while the grim reaper suffers from amnesia.

    “Goblin” is set to air in November on tvN.


    it'll be interesting gong yoo and lee dong wook together :wub:




    OH.EM. GEE. ....seriously,  can this get any better....another fabulous GY spectacular. ....waiting waiting, can't wait. ...

    The South Korean model-turned-actor on zombies, choosing projects, and Yeon Sang-ho’s Cannes official selection Train to Busan.

    MOD EDIT: Please do not quote images!

    This is an interesting thought: how would conscription impact Hollywood and its promising young male stars, the leading men of tomorrow? “No Star Trek Beyond for you, Anton Yelchin!” No exceptions. “I’ve just about had it up to here with your X-Men shenanigans, Nicholas Hoult!” Your hopes and dreams dashed like that, or just put on hold for a year or two—if you’re so lucky.

    The same fate of South Korean citizens—if you’re a guy, anyway—Gong Yoo served a two-year mandatory military service in his late 20s, at the height of his fame in 2007. By then, the wildly popular TV series The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince had turned the model-turned-actor into a household name back home and upped his demand overseas as a “Hallyu” star, or as part of “The Korean Wave,” referring to the increased global visibility of South Korean culture from the ’90s forward. Two years away sounds like a death sentence in entertainment, but despite Gong’s sparse filmography, he successfully returned to the height of it all. And it’s not strange that, as he toughened up in the military, so did his artistic palate. Once known for his romantic comedies, we saw Gong taking on Silenced (2011), a controversial film based on actual events in which young deaf students were sexually abused by faculty members at a South Korean school for the hearing-impaired in the early ’00s, and step into the shoes of a North Korean spy in The Suspect (2013).

    This year, Cannes unspooled Yeon-Sang Ho’s Midnight entry Train to Busan, which finds Gong trapped on the KTX (South Korea’s high-speed rail system) and caught up in a zombie apocalypse. This November, the actor will return to television following a four-year absence with Dokkaebi, a tale of a goblin and a grim reaper working together to help the dead pass through to the next world.

    We stole Gong away for a quick chat following the Cannes premiere of Train to Busan.

    The 69th Cannes Film Festival runs from May 11 to May 22.

    You had an incredibly enthusiastic response at the premiere. It’s my fifth year at Cannes and I hadn’t experienced quite something like that. Was it your first time seeing the finished film?

    It was. To be honest, I was a bit worried in the beginning because this is director Yeon-Sang Ho’s first live action film. But before we started shooting, we shared conversations about embedding a strong message against the backdrop of this zombie movie and that was very satisfying to me. I wonder if you felt the message that people are scarier than zombies when you saw the movie.

    I think we’re the scariest thing on the planet. I’m more and more convinced of this every day.

    We wanted to communicate that. We wanted to show just how scary people can be—not zombies.

    In every practical sense, Train to Busan is a horror film. But it’s also incredibly moving and sad. Did you find the physical or emotional demands more challenging on this shoot?

    To me, acting is difficult in general. It was hard work, both physically and mentally. But it would be embarrassing for me to admit that I was tired on this shoot because the actors portraying the zombies were so hard-working. I couldn’t possibly complain about the things I went through when what was expected of them physically was so much greater. They were put through a lot.

    Some time has passed since you wrapped on the film. I’m assuming seeing the film last night conjured a lot of memories from the shoot. Would you be open to sharing one of them?

    Although this is obviously a fictional movie, there were times when I was genuinely scared. When you’re operating on fear while in character, in this narrow space of the train, and one of the zombie grabs you by accident, it’s scary. That’s for the blooper real, but the expression on my face is real.

    You spend the majority of this film running for your life, and I totally bought into all of it.

    I’m running like hell all throughout this movie and I’m not faking that. I was scared. [Laughs] Even when we weren’t shooting, I didn’t go near the actors with their zombie make-ups on.

    Yeon-Sang Ho comes from the world of animation and this is his first live action film, as you mentioned before. What observations did you make about him as a director and person?

    If you’re going to work within the zombie genre, which had never been explored too much in South Korean cinema before, you need to have the confidence to see it through. I saw that confidence in Yeon-Sang Ho. I was confident that he would make a great film from the very beginning. He also has the ability to make actors laugh, so that created a comfortable atmosphere.

    You’ve been in the industry for a while now and explored a lot. What excites you nowadays?

    I look at the forest, not a lone tree.

    That’s poetic. You’re simply looking at the bigger picture.

    Exactly. If there’s a forest and the view looks great, I’m happy to explore it.





    Gosh......thank you so much for this.....made my heart flutter....so poetic indeed...and so honest. ..loveloveloved it...cant wait to see this movie  OMG! ....CONGRATULATIONS GONG YOO....
