'The Weird' tops Blue Dragon Awards

Korean western wins four prizes at film event



SEOUL -- "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" won four prizes at the 29th Blue Dragon Film Awards ceremony in Seoul on Thursday, the kudosfest which kicks off South Korea's awards season.

The Korean western set in 1930s Manchuria won best director for Kim Ji-woon plus the cinematography and art direction laurels. It also scooped the Maximum Audience Award for the year's best box office performance with a cume of $44.2 million.

Helmer Lim Soon-rye's "Forever the Moment" won for best picture and also earned supporting actress laurels for Kim Ji-young. Kim Yoon-suk picked up the actor honor for "The Chaser" while "My Wife Got Married" star Son Ye-jin nabbed the best actress award. Supporting actor went to Park Hee-soon for "Seven Days."

The male leads in Kim Ki-duk-scripted thriller "Rough Cut," So Ji-sub and Kang Ji-whan, shared the best new actor honor. Best new actress award went to Han Ye-seul for "Miss Gold Digger." Lee Gyeong-mi won the new director award for "Crush and Blush," a prize which helmer Na Hong-jin ("The Chaser") had been widely tapped to win. Lee also received best screenplay award.

There was a pensive note to the festivities, however, as organizers presented an honorary popular star award to the late Choi Jin-sil, the Korean actress who committed suicide last month. Choi held the record for wins in the category, nabbing the most popular female star award every year from 1990 to 1995, and again in 1997 and 1998. Choi made her screen debut in 1990 with "Nambugun."


Filmmakers Honored at the 29th Blue Dragon Awards


The 29th Blue Dragon Awards was held Thursday night to honor the year's top films and filmmakers.

This year's Blue Dragon Awards' best film honor went to "Forever the Moment," a moving film based on a true story about how the Korean women's handball team overcame the odds to win the silver medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics. The film's co-star Kim Ji-young also won the best supporting actress award. Its producer, Shim Jae-myung, said that he wanted to make an inspirational film about people outside the spotlight.

Kim Yun-seok of the year's top thriller "The Chaser" was honored with the best leading actor award and Son Ye-jin of the romantic comedy "My Wife Got Married" was named the best leading actress. This year's top grossing film "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" directed by Kim Ji-woon garnered four awards - best director, cinematography, art direction, and the movie attracting the most moviegoers. Comedy "Crush and Blush" directed by newcomer Lee Kyung-mi went away with the best new director and best screenplay awards.

There was a touching moment when the late actress Choi Jin-sil was commemorated and given an honorary popularity award. Actor Ahn Sung-ki, who co-starred with her in “North Korean Partisan in South Korea,” commented that she had always been a cheerful mom and actress and that her works will forever be remembered in people’s hearts.

Stars launch Korean Film Festival


In what must be the biggest-budget launch of the KCC’s third London Korean Film Festival, director Kim Ji-woon and actor Lee Byung-hun were brought to London to introduce the flagship film of the festival, The Good the Bad and the Weird.


Tony Rayns, the UK’s most established Korean film expert, was also there to celebrate. A few introductory speeches – including a brief welcome from Lee Byung-hun - opened the evening on Thursday, before a capacity screening of Kim Ji-woon’s kimchi western.


The party afterwards gave plenty of photo opportunities with the stars, while Barbican staff came round with glasses of soju and Korean-inspired dishes. Both Lee and Kim were generous with their time in posing for photos with guests.

Kim Ji-Woon and Lee Byung-Hun at the Korean Film Festival 2008


I'm very keen on Korean cinema. More specifically, I'm an unpardonably devoted fan of director Kim Ji-Woon. He'd be the chap above, probably wondering what that crazy English guy in the audience is doing pointing a camera right at him (especially when he's already got three paid photographers at his feet). Kim has only delivered five feature films to date (The Quiet Family, the delightful Foul King, A Tale of Two Sisters, A Bittersweet Life, and The Good, The Bad, The Weird), but they're each inestimably beautiful, illuminating, intelligent genre films that believe it or not actually have a heart (instead of tacking cosmetic emotion on like some clumsy attachment). Anyway, so the point is, 'Mr Kim' was in town this evening to do press for his latest (the aforementioned The Good, The Bad, The Weird), so I, of course, went along to the Barbican (where this year's Korean film fest is being held in London) to quietly harass him with my camera. :)

It got me thinking.. while looking through GBW thread pages last night, main reason Dir. Kim didn't attend the Blue Dragon recently.. could be that he's away at another film festival overseas. I'm not too sure but there is another film festival that has GBW included in their screening schedule. Could it be.. maybe? :blush:

Hope we'll get more info/clarification on this and most hopefully, we will see Dir. Kim at the 7th Korean Film Awards this Dec 4th in which he's nominated in the Best Director category as well. :) Fighting!

South Korea’s leading national film awards ceremony, the 29th Blue Dragon Awards, handed out its top prize of Best Picture to hit sports drama Forever the Moment, by woman director LIM Soon-rye. Starring MOON So-ri, the film, a true story about Korea’s women’s handball Olympic team, was 2008’s first local box office success.

Dominating the awards ceremony, held Nov. 20 in Yeoido, Seoul, was KIM Ji-woon’s kimchi western, The Good, The Bad, The Weird, which picked up 4 prizes including Best Cinematography, Best Director, and Best Art Direction. The 1930s Manchuria set film was the year’s highest grossing box office performer thus also picking up the Maximum Audience Award.

The Best Actor nod went to KIM Yoon-suk as the weathered ex-cop in NA Hong-jin’s The Chaser. SON Ye-jin captured the Best Actress prize for her lead in the comedy-drama My Wife Got Married.

Supporting Actor and Actress nods went to PARK Hee-soon for kidnapping thriller Seven Days and KIM Ji-young for her energetic role in Forever the Moment. Best New Actress went to HAN Ye-seul for Miss Gold Digger while the Best New Actor prize was shared by SO Ji-sub and KANG Ji-hwan, the two male leads in the KIM Ki-duk produced Rough Cut.

Crush and Blush, the debut feature by PARK Chan-wook’s assistant director LEE Gyeong-mi, garnered the female helmer both the Best New Director prize and the Best Screenplay award.

An Honorary Popular Star award was presented in memory of the late CHOI Jin-sil, who committed suicide in October. CHOI had made her debut in the 1990 film Nambugun and went on to win the Most Popular Female Star award 8 times at the Blue Dragon Awards.

Korea Film Awards Honor Year’s Bests


The 7th Korea Film Awards honored the year’s top filmmakers Thursday night. In a ceremony held at Sejong Cultural Center and aired on MBC this year’s hit “The Chaser” came away with the most number of awards. A chilling story about a merciless serial killer and a former cop who chases him relentlessly, “The Chaser” won seven categories - the best picture, best director for Na Hong-jin, best leading actor for Kim Yun-seok, best screenplay, best new director, best lighting, and best editing.

Kong Hyo-jin of “Crush and Blush” received the best leading actress award and Park Hee-sun, who played a corrupt cop and pal to the leading character in “Seven Days,” and Kim Ji-young as an indomitable handball player in “Forever the Moment” respectively won the best supporting actor and actress awards. Much touted “The Good, the Bad, the Weird” got the nod for its art direction, photography, sound, and visual effect.

Suspense thriller "Chaser" sweeps Korean Film Awards


Audio-clip: mms://yonhapnews.hvod.nefficient.co.kr/yonhap_audio/eng/eng_081205b.wma

The suspense thriller "Chaser" took seven of the most coveted titles at Thursday's Korean Film Awards in Seoul.

Director Na Hong-jin's film, loosely based on the real-life drama of an investigator's search for a sexual predator, won awards for best film, screenplay, editing and lighting. Na was also voted best director and best new director, while co-star Kim Yoon-suk won the best actor award.

Na's feature film debut was the second Korean film this year to attract over 4 million moviegoers, following Im Sun-rye's "Forever the Moment," a fictionalized account of the South Korean women's handball team in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens.

Kim Ji-woon's "The Good the Bad the Weird," reportedly South Korea's biggest-budget film, won awards for best cinematography, art direction, special effects and sound effects.

The event was the seventh of its kind and was hosted by broadcasting giant MBC. It was sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The Good, The Bad, The Weird - Preview


Preview by Jack Foley

ONE of the undoubted highlights of the recent London Film Festival was Kim Jee-Woon’s elaborate homage to the Spaghetti Westerns of Sergio Leone, The Good, The Bad, The Weird.

Set in Japanese-occupied Manchuria in the 1930s, the film centres on a treasure map that everyone wants. Its principal pursuers are three wildely different men: Chang-Yi, leader of a bandit gang, who’s hired to seize it from a train across the plains; his nemesis, the bounty-hunter Do-Weon; and the accident-prone train robber Tae-Gu, who seems to have a charmed life; not to mention the Japanese army, émigré Korean freedom-fighters and assorted Chinese bandits.

As each attempts to gain the upper hand, Kim Jee-Woon propels the film forward with virtually non-stop action – most of which is breathlessly choreographed and, more often than not, utterly insane.

Tony Rayns, of the London Film Festival, said that “it’s been the hit of the year in Korea, and here’s betting you’ll find it a blast too” – and he’s absolutely right. This is deliriously good fun and shouldn’t be missed when it makes its way into UK cinemas next year (2009).

Aside from the London Film Festival, the film also proved an audience hit at Cannes, where the filmmaking team also spoke about it at a press conference.

Speaking about the Westerns that influenced him, Kim Jee-woon told journalists: “I like films like High Noon, Shane, My Darling Clementine, or Gunfight At The OK Corral, and also Rio Bravo, the Howard Hawks film, but I think that I’m more influenced by films which show great strengths, and I’m thinking mainly of the Italian westerns, the films by Sergio Leone.

“In American westerns, they foreground American tradition and American values, whereas in Italian westerns, spaghetti westerns, I find much greater purely cinematographic pleasure. I find that there is much more expressivity in the characters.

“Naturally, I also enjoy many American westerns, particularly the more recent ones… There was a time when westerns began to look back into the past, with films like The Wild Bunch by Sam Peckinpah or Unforgiven by Clint Eastwood. But I think, in fact, it’s above all Sergio Leone’s westerns that I find the coolest.”

The nods to Leone are numerous but always respectful, while – crucially – the film has plenty of invention of its own. Western fans, Tarantino followers, and Leone purists can’t fail to be impressed.

cover.jpg for Kim Jee-Woon

The renowned Korean director is in town promoting his anarchic Eastern/Western, The Good, The Bad, The Weird... Calum Waddell sat down with the maestro to probe his psyche!

January will see the UK cinema release of Kim Ji-woon’s The Good, the Bad & the Weird (given a, rightfully, positive review in last month’s issue of Impact). This bullet-heavy, darkly comic, splatter packed western is set in the 1930s and rarely pauses for a breath; introducing viewers to its three title characters who are on an unavoidable road to conflict. The result is a series of death-defying chases and an ending that is as hilarious as it is tragic - and, after gaining the thumbs up from critics at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, it seems more than likely that The Good, the Bad & the Weird will find similar accolades from Asia Extreme buffs across the UK. For Ji-woon, of course, it is simply the latest feather in his cap. Having already helmed two crossover smashes in the shape of 2003’s grim ghost story A Tale of Two Sisters (just remade as The Uninvited - will these Hollywood hack jobs never stop?) and 2005’s stupendous gangster offering A Bittersweet Life..

^ Wahhhh! melusine.. thanks so much for the highlight, totally didn't expect this! :w00t: Awesome news, indeed and thanks very much for the message, too. Really appreciate it.. :blush: .. but seriously.. you can just post the list at the thread to share. The other update is practically negligible as it doesn't quote anything correctly. :blink: Although I sometimes had to desperately rely on such updates due to the non-existance BH news in English and for being hopeless in gisting anything properly. :blush: (turns out that we had to correct everything in the ChanMi updates that it's much easier to wild-guess the Korean article in the first place.. argh! :wacko: )

Found the Directors' CUT Awards news on Korea Times. FABULOUS update!!!!

Ha, Kong Win Director's CUT Awards

By Cathy Rose A. Garcia

Staff Reporter


Korean directors picked actor Ha Jung-woo and actress Kong Hyo-jin as the Best Actor and Best Actress for the 11th Director's CUT Awards 2008.

The Korea Film Director's Network chose Ha and Kong as the year's best performers for their outstanding film roles.

Ha was given recognition for his exceptional performances in the hit films "My Dear Enemy" and "The Chaser." In 2005, Ha was awarded Best New Actor for "The Unforgiven" at the Director's CUT Awards.

Kong was cited for her role as a frumpy high school teacher suffering from a bad case of blushing and delusions in "Crush and Blush." Kong, who has always had a stylish image, had surprised many with her transformation into an unattractive Miss Hongdangmu (carrot) in the film.

The Best Director Award was given to Kim Jee-won who directed the acclaimed "kimchi Western," "The Good, the Bad, the Weird." Director Na Hong-jin received the New Director Award for his work on the gripping thriller "The Chaser."

Actor Yoo Ah-in was named Best New Actor for his role in the film "Antique," while young actress Seo Woo was named Best New Actress for her role as a middle school loser in "Blush and Crush."

The Independent Movie Director Award went to Jeong Byeong-gil who made independent documentary "Action Boys," about the lives of stuntmen in Korea.

Winners for the Director's CUT Awards are picked through voting by 200 Korean directors. The awards will be handed out during a ceremony Dec. 19.
