^ Maybe it's just me, but I don't think floppy hair suits Lee Jung Jae. :mellow: I prefer his clean look in Il Mare and Typhoon.

Same here but I think he's just letting it grow & grow... while he's between jobs. :P Speaking of which... wonder what he'll take on next, another movie or back to drama series? Just don't take too long a break, LJJ-ssi! :)

Washington Post Hails Movie 'Typhoon'

Saturday, June 3, 2006 14:14:56


A Washington Post film critic has hailed the South Korean movie "Typhoon" as very Korean as well as universal.

In the daily's Saturday edition, Stephen Hunter said the movie deals with loss, pain and a sense of insignificance shared by Koreans but is vivid enough to have a universal appeal.

He compared the two lead actors Jang Dong-gun and Lee Jung-jae to Bruce Willis following Sean Penn.

On Lee's donning of a white naval uniform in the movie, Hunter said his gorgeous look will make people want to become a cadet.

Hi nikkainah... always a pleasure sharing about LJJ! :D

I haven't watched Typhoon either... it'll be for LJJ-ssi obviously! :wub:

He'd always have this quiet, mysterious feeling... just like in An Affair *danger!* and Il Mare, too. :blush:

Lee Jung-Jae is a very talented and versatile actor. My favorite film of his is probably Il Mare.

He actually opened a series of restaurants named after the film Il Mare.

Yup, agree with you... having his own chain of Italian Restaurant and what better than to name it Il Mare. :) A quiet but nonetheless, an awesome establishment, too and he designed the interiors as well! Cool! :blush:

Hope to see LJJ on the big and small screen... he sure deserves more!

I know from initial news updates... that LJJ was the first choice for Full House, the production was going to offer him the highest bid (at the time) but he turned it down. And that (I read this offhandedly at koreanfilm's discussion board but cannot find the thread... it's sooooo long ago) that he also turned down Untold Scandal before the lead role went to BYJ, eventually.

Anyone heard/knows more about this... for discussion sake....

^ You mean Full House as in the drama with Song Hye Kyo & Bi? Well, I'm glad LJJ turned that down. I can't see him in Bi's role (nor Kim Sung Soo's, for that matter), and I think LJJ deserves a better script - I was not very impressed with Full House.

Didn't see Untold Scandal, but the image I have of LJJ doesn't square with the BYJ role.

Frankly, I'm glad he turned down both roles.

Does anyone have pics of the Il Mare restaurants? Would be so cool to see the décor!

Yeah, the same one. I actually had copied the update for posting elsewhere... dramaok translated it from Korean source when news first came out, probably banking on LJJ-SHK's previous commercial team-up. I've seen the drama as well, not totally into it either... probably it's more for the younger crowd. :unsure:

The Untold Scandal thing... it was talked about at koreanfilm... it's mainly about why LJJ turned it down, people thought it would better if he had done it considering his successful portrayal in An Affair. But his management turned it down and he went on to film Oh! Brothers instead.

Yeah... I'd love to see his restaurants too, wonder if it had been featured anywhere.

Korean film Typhoon has vivid universal appeal


The Korean film, Typhoon, has been hailed by Stephen Hunter (60), one of the most renowned film critics in the USA, as "very Korean as well as universal."

Mr. Hunter is a well-respected Washington Post film critic. He received a Pulitzer Prize in 2003.

In his Washington Post review of Typhoon on June 2, he evaluated that the movie deals with loss, pain, and a sense of insignificance shared by Koreans, but the film is vivid enough to have a universal appeal.

"A few others have compared this to a James Bond movie, but it's more of a piece with a Tom Clancy movie; it never leaves the real world that far behind, it has a fair sense of documentary reality," Hunter said.

In addition, Hunter said that, as opposed to Shira, another Korean action film raring for international success, Typhoon does not give in to Hong Kong's gangster stylistics and acrobatic - almost "circusy" -action sequences, mentioning that the film has all the shooting and the dying that take place, more or less, in a recognizable natural world governed by physics and science.

He compared the roles and appearances of Jang, Dong-kun and Lee, Jung-jae, who play two main protagonists in the film, to those of "Bruce Willis in pursuit of Sean Penn." He went on saying, "Lee, Jung-jae looks so good in his naval whites he makes you want to go to Annapolis (US Naval Academy)."

A native of Kansas City, MI, Hunter is acclaimed for his sharp, and sometimes notorious, criticism on films-he often disregards films that he believes of low-quality right away, with ruthless one-liners such as, "This 99-minute film feels like 99 years," or "Do not take this kind of film seriously."

hello, rubie.... :)

Let me congratulate this movie considering the fact that a well-respected Washingon film critic, Mr. Stephen Hunter, had good words about the movie.... words like " it's more of a Tom Clancy movie; Bruce Willis in pursuit of Sean Penn;very Korean and very universal."
