The First Trial for Korean 3D Cinema                                                                                                        


Directed by KIM Ji-hoon

By BAI K Seung Chan

Originally scheduled to be premiered in mid or late July, Korea’s biggest cinema season, Sector 7 yielded this golden period to Quick , a film also produced by JK Film, and postponed its release to early August. It was because Sector 7 is a 3D film. Seriously examining the possibility of 3D cinema in Korea, Sector 7 has made a strategic choice, avoiding a war against Hollywood 3D films over 3D screens, as Transformer 3 opens in June and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in July.

Lead by YOUN JK, director of My Boss, My Hero and Haeundae , JK Film is one of the best filmmakers of recent years in Korea. JK Film is also maintaining a close relationship with CJ E&M Cinema Business Sector that ranks number one in sales among Korean investors and distributors. The first major scaled 3D film in Korea produced by JK Film and distributed by CJ; with these 3 facts alone

show the possibility for a record setting number of ticket sales for a Korean film this year.

Sector 7 is about a fierce struggle between men and a deep ocean monster located at an oil prospecting ship named ‘Eclipse’. The film is directed by KIM Ji-hoon, director of May 18 that drew 7.3 million viewers to the theaters. The leading role is a warrior-like character who is the only female on the ship, played by HA Ji-won. HA had appeared regularly in films made by JK and has scored high in all shows she appeared in, on TV and screen including the recent big hit TV drama Secret Garden . Others on the cast list includes national actor AHN Sung-ki who always has a sense of stability in Korean’s eyes and OH Ji-ho who has been very popular in TV dramas.

Keeping its place at the top of Korean box office, The Host had proved monster movies can make a hit in Korea as well. With Sector 7 too, design of the monster is expected to be the key to making the film a box office hit. According to the producer YOUN JK, Sector 7 ’s monster will be half translucent, luminous, and blind but uses its tentacles to detect objects. YOUN says “the aim was to create a beast

never seen in any monster movie, anywhere on earth.”

The monster from The Host was completed with the help from New Zealand’s Weta Workshop. Meanwhile Sector 7 ’s monster was born at MOFAC, special effect studio of Korea.

The 3D technology is from Korea too. “It was impossible to do 100% converting and 100% 3D filming due to quality issues and cost respectively,” said YOUN. “70% of the film was shot 3D and 30% converted.” Such ratio was the supposed “tangent point in the context of cost against effect” that

Korean cinema industry can handle. Total production cost of Sector 7 is in the range of US$13.

JK Film and CJ are also having high hopes for overseas sales of Sector 7 . Already US$1.1 million worth of pre-sale has been made. When the film is featured in full scale starting from Cannes Film Festival Markets, it is expected to easily earn more than US$2 million. Unlike Haeundae that had

strong local colors, it is JK Film’s judgment that Sector 7 has the ‘the look and attitude’ that will work in the overseas market too.

“Korean cinema storytelling is at the highest level in the world, but as for technology it is only learning how to walk compared to Hollywood,” explained YOUN, adding “We’ve acquired special effects technology in Haeundae . Based on that, we wish to make endless challenges against film

technology, starting from Sector 7 and Quick .”

Thanks to all her working out, she is now being called 'the best muscled actress'.

Also, to ride a motorcycle like a whiz which is also a hobby of Hae-joon's she got a scuba diving and motorcycle license.

<h2 class="entry-title">Ha Ji Won becomes a sexy warrior in “Sector 7″


Ha Ji Won recently transformed into a sexy warrior for her upcoming movie, “Sector 7″.

Up until now, Ha Ji Won has taken on a variety of roles in her movie filming career, including a boxer, a stunt woman, and an officer. For “Sector 7″, she will play the role of an oil rig equipment manager who is forced to fight an ocean sea monster.

It has been revealed that Ha Ji Won underwent strenuous exercises to prepare for her action-packed role. She spent eight hours a day swimming and lifting weights and even went as far as obtaining licenses in both scuba diving and motorcycling.

Moreover, in order to realistically portray her role as an oil rig manager, she pumped up her muscle mass to which her personal trainer said, “She has the most muscle mass out of all the actresses in Korea”.


Ha Ji Won stated, “I have a petite physique, so I concentrated on weight training to prevent my action scenes from looking weak and powerless.” A “Sector 7″ representative further added, “There were scenes that involved explosions and dangerous stunts, but Ha Ji Won didn’t use a stunt double and did all of the scenes herself in order to create a perfect woman warrior.”

“Sector 7″ will be released on August 4th in 3D.
