Star-studded film 'Wonderland' to premiere in June




By Lee Gyu-lee

The much-anticipated film “Wonderland” is finally getting its premiere in June after a long delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The film’s distributor, Acemaker Movieworks, announced that it will hit local theaters on June 5, unveiling a trailer and still photos of the cast members.


The sci-fi drama film revolves around a virtual platform service called Wonderland, which creates a virtual version of a deceased person through artificial intelligence. The story follows a group of people using the service to reunite with their late loved ones and communicate with them through video calls.


Led by director Kim Tae-yong, whose previous work includes romance films "All for Love" (2005) and "Late Autumn" (2010), the film created a huge buzz with its stellar cast members, including Bae Suzy, Park Bo-gum, Tang Wei, Choi Woo-shik, Jung Yu-mi and Gong Yoo.


Bae and Park will play a young couple who use the service when Park’s character falls into a coma. Tang and Gong will play a married couple in their 40s and Jung and Choi will play the coordinators of the service.


The movie finished filming four years ago in 2020 and was scheduled to roll out the following year, but was indefinitely delayed for release due to the pandemic and its aftereffects on theaters.


Tang and Park shared a glimpse of the film during the ceremony of the Blue Dragon Film Awards last November, while presenting an award.


“What I'm looking forward to in 'Wonderland' is the love story between Bae and Park," Tang said. "I think Park will gain even more female fans after the movie is released."


Park also added: “’Wonderland’ is at last ready to meet the audience. It's a film that makes you contemplate precious values."

Best Rom-Com K-Dramas That Will Make Your Heart Flutter

Koreans really have a knack for creating a good rom-com!

Be it American, French, Japanese, Filipino, written, or otherwise, we love the romantic comedy genre. A rom-com story always has that feel-good element to it. Not only does it make you feel and understand what love is all about, but super bonus points if you can get a good laugh out of it. A win-win! And because we're self-proclaimed honorary Korean citizens (LOL), we just love love love a good ~*rom-com*~ Korean drama too!


My first Korean rom-com is the Filipino-dubbed version of Full House. I super loved the chemistry between Rain (as Justin or Lee Young Jae) and Song Hye Kyo (as Jessie or Han Ji Eun) and the story was just refreshing. Koreans have a knack for creating heart-fluttering K-Dramas and I have thus racked up a list of favorites over the years. It’s hard to narrow down the selection, but here’s a list of recent rom-com K-Dramas that you can start watching…or rewatching. *wink*


Here are 12 Rom-Com K-Dramas you need to watch on Netflix, Viu, and iQIYI:



10. Our Beloved Summer (2021)

Who’s in it: Kim Da Mi, Choi Woo Shik, Kim Sung Cheol, Noh Jung Ui

Where you can watch it: Netflix

The plot: Choi Woong and Kook Yeonsu used to be mortal enemies in high school until they weren't. Their antagonistic ways in high school somehow led to a romance that ended up in flames. Years later, however, a documentary they filmed together back in high school resurfaces and their paths once again begin to cross, as if by fate. And so we follow the story of Woong and Yeonsu, of them going back to their Tom and Jerry fights, of revelations unfolding, of dreams intertwining, and of a love that they try hard to suppress but has actually never gone away.

Here are 10 highest-rated Mon-Tue K-dramas this year on mydramalist.


Compared to the weekend time slot, the competition between Mon-Tue K-dramas is less fierce, but the quality and versatility in genres of this year’s Mon-Tue series should not be ignored. Let’s take a look at 10 Mon-Tue dramas broadcast this year with the highest scores on the famous website mydramalist as of August 10, 2022. 



1st place: Our Beloved Summer (SBS) – 8.8


our beloved summer


Starring the duo of trustworthy actors, Choi Woo Shik and Kim Dami, “Our Beloved Summer” unexpectedly did not do well rating-wise with an average rating of only 3.9%. Contrary to its humble performance in Korea, “Our Beloved Summer” is one of the most loved K-dramas by international viewers this year, recording the highest score on mydramalist across Mon-Tue dramas. Perhaps international fans have always had a soft spot for heartfelt youth dramas, and “Our Beloved Summer” is no exception.

'Wonderland' lets you video call your lost loved ones


By Shim Sun-ah




SEOUL, May 9 (Yonhap) -- Many recent films and TV series have portrayed a future enhanced by highly advanced artificial intelligence technologies.


This hot topic returns to the Korean cinema with "Wonderland," a Korean sci-fi fantasy drama slated for release next month.


The film tells the story of people who use an innovative AI service called "Wonderland," which allows them to communicate with their deceased loved ones through video calls.


Written and directed by Kim Tae-yong, best known for "Late Autumn" (2011), the new flick boasts a star-studded cast, featuring Bae Suzy, Park Bo-gum, Jung Yu-mi, Choi Woo-shik and Tang Wei.

"I make video calls often. But after hanging up, I would wonder if that was really a real person I was talking to," Kim said during a press conference in Seoul on Thursday to promote "Wonderland."


"When I meet them again, it feels like a long time has passed, yet also like I just saw them yesterday. It feels like the boundaries of relationships are becoming increasingly blurred," he continued. "This led me to consider the possibility that, unlike the past, there could be a time when even deceased people can communicate and not be truly gone," he said, explaining his motivation for making the film.


He set the movie in the near future using technologies available today, hoping to make the story resonate with the audience.


To further enhance realism, he consulted with a prominent AI expert at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), a national research university in Daejeon.

In "Wonderland," Bae Suzy takes on the role of a young flight attendant who uses the service to communicate with her boyfriend (played by Park Bo-gum) after he falls into a coma from an accident.


Tang Wei plays a mother who subscribes to the service before her death to allow herself to communicate with her young daughter.


Jung Yu-mi and Choi Woo-shik portray a team of coordinators of the service.


The director admitted the actors were so captivating that he found himself constantly moving the camera closer while filming them. "So I had to make a conscious effort to step back," he said, with a smile.


Park Bo-gum said he was drawn to the film's unique concept.


"When I first read the screenplay," he said, "I found the subject matter incredibly interesting. But most of all, I wanted to work with the director."


The actor said it was a "pleasure" to constantly exchange ideas with the director about the characters and their stories throughout filming.


Bae Suzy agreed, saying: "The most fascinating aspect of working with the director was his ability to help me express complex emotions. It was also fun to exchange thoughts with him throughout the filming process."

The upcoming film marks Kim's first feature film in 13 years after "Late Autumn" and his second collaboration with Tang Wei, who is now his wife, after the 2011 romance movie.


When asked about working again with the Chinese actress, Kim described it as "an amazing experience."


"I'd see her on set all day, and then I'd go home, and there she was again," he said.


Choi Woo-shik then chimed in, asking, "So, was it good?"


Kim chuckled and replied: "Absolutely. We could talk about things at home that we couldn't on set. It felt like I was working 24 hours a day."


Tang added, "This is our second project together, and the biggest difference is that I became more comfortable than before.


"The director is a workaholic, and I'm also a detail-oriented and meticulous person. I'm lucky to be able to work with him. I think it would have been quite difficult with someone else," she said, drawing laughter from reporters.


The film will open in local theaters nationwide June 5.

Suzy, Park Bo-gum star in AI fantasy romance ‘Wonderland’




“Wonderland,” a sci-fi fantasy and romance film set in the near future that deals with relationships, death and life, shows what it is like to communicate using AI technology, director Kim Tae-yong said Thursday.


The movie revolves around people reuniting in a virtual world called Wonderland. Tang Wei, Suzy and Park Bo-gum star as those who ask to meet people they loved but cannot meet anymore in the real world. Jung Yu-mi and Choi Woo-shik appear as staff who support the AI service users in Wonderland.


Suzy and Park, who have shown special chemistry as emcees at Baeksang Arts Awards for many years, are expected to show on-screen chemistry in “Wonderland.” They appear as a young couple struggling to settle into a new life after Tae-ju (Park) suffers brain damage.


Suzy plays Jung-in, a woman in her 20s who misses talking to Tae-ju, who is in a coma. That leads her to sign up to the Wonderland service, where she can talk to him.


“(I once heard that) we’re living in a world where communication with technology, something non-human, is more comfortable and easier than having it with real humans. I tried to focus on that feeling,” Suzy told reporters during a press conference held in CGV Yongsan, Seoul, Thursday.




“Wonderland” is director Kim's first movie in 13 years after “Late Autumn” (2011). Both movies star his wife and Chinese actor Tang Wei. The two were married after working together on "Late Autumn."


Kim said the movie was inspired by technologies he had enjoyed during the pandemic.


“I did a lot of video calls during the pandemic. Not just me, but many people around us had to. After hanging up the video chat, I felt like if this was real and the border between human relationships felt like fading away,” Kim told reporters.


The movie was shot during the pandemic from 2020 to 2021.


“So I wanted to tell the story on – maybe – an imminent future where technology can connect people even after death,” he added.


To make sure the AI technology in the movie makes sense, Kim said he worked with a team at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology.


“I asked KAIST professor Kim Dae-shik for advice on AI technology because I wanted to make the audience feel this movie as something very relatable as if they’re seeing the near future,” said Kim.




Actors said the story was fresh to approach and act in.


“It was very interesting that this whole universe in the movie was very believable,” said Suzy.


Park said he even felt like he was involved in the pre-production because he had a lot of conversation with the director and his partner Suzy even before the shooting.


“Kim was a very friendly, smooth person to work with. He would share details about the characters and also hear from my side (in terms of acting Tae-ju). I felt like I literally produced the film from pre-production,” said Park.


Choi Woo-shik said he also loved working with Kim, adding that the director’s warmth as a person added a different mood to this sci-fi fantasy romance.


“When you think about sci-fi movies, they feel very cold and blue-toned, but the director’s warmth and the movie’s overall message mixed very well to offer a new mood,” said Choi.


Director Kim and Tang Wei said they enjoyed working together on the same project.


"What I liked the most (about working with an actress wife) was that I get to talk about work even at home," Kim said, laughing.


Tang said both she and her husband enjoy talking about work at home because both are "workaholics."


"I treat my work seriously and try to focus on every detail and this could have been very difficult for other directors. But I'm glad (that it's my husband) that I worked with," Tang said.


“Wonderland” is slated for release June 5.

Walking in an AI 'Wonderland': Film tackles future of grieving


The director and cast of "Wonderland" pose for cameras during a press conference for the upcoming film at CGV Yongsan in central Seoul on Thursday. From left: Kim Tae-yong, Choi Woo-shik, Park Bo-gum, Suzy and Tang Wei [YONHAP]

Relationships in “Wonderland,” an upcoming Korean sci-fi fantasy film, are seemingly easier to handle than in real life. Closure from death or breakups can be avoided as people are able to reconnect with their lost loved ones through the help of artificial intelligence.
Directed by Kim Tae-yong, the film features an ensemble cast composed solely of A-listers Tang Wei, Suzy, Park Bo-gum, Jung Yu-mi and Choi Woo-shik, who each play characters that deal with — or rather, dodge — grief and loss through an AI service called Wonderland that offers reincarnations via video call simulations.

The bittersweet possibility of digitally reuniting with a lost significant other or family member can offer solace — but can we say that they really exist? It’s a question that director Kim has had about video calls in general even among the living.
“I’ve always felt that the confines of human relationships have become very blurred through video calls nowadays,” he said during a press conference at CGV Yongsan in central Seoul on Thursday. “We’re able to interact with anyone, anytime, but sometimes it leaves me wondering, is the other person on the line actually there?”
Kim then took it up a notch: “What if there comes a time when we can be in contact with the dead through video calls?” And this became a eureka moment that led to “Wonderland,” his first feature film in 13 years since “Late Autumn.”
“This film is based on my own curiosity and I felt like it was my job to answer it,” he said.
But “Wonderland” doesn’t flaunt the infinite potential of AI technology or the virtual world. It’s meant to inspire viewers to think about their own interpersonal relationships, which is why Kim focused on making the plot “relatable” and “believable,” after receiving help from actual AI experts.

Tang Wei in "Wonderland" [ACEMAKER MOVIEWORKS]

Tang plays Bai Li, a mother who signs herself up for Wonderland to hide her death from her young daughter. As Bai Li becomes an archaeologist in the afterlife, Tang met with actual experts in that field and bought books on the field.
“We now have more books on archaeology than on cinema at home,” joked Kim, who has been married to Tang since 2014.
It’s also the husband and wife’s second time working on a film together since first meeting on the set of “Late Autumn.” Despite some concerned reporters asking if it wasn’t troublesome to work together professionally, Kim and Tang agreed that they were compatible, thanks to both being such workaholics.

Suzy and Park are already a familiar duo who have hosted the annual Baeksang Arts Awards for several years now, but in “Wonderland” they have returned as a couple. When Park’s character, Tae-ju, falls into a coma due to an accident, Suzy’s character, Jeong-in, is desperate to stay with him through Wonderland. A problem, however, arises when Tae-ju wakes back up and isn’t entirely who he used to be due to brain damage.
There was a lot of “complex, inexplicable acting” required to play Jeong-in, with Suzy describing it as a roller coaster of emotions.
“Jeong-in would be devastated when Tae-ju becomes unconscious, and then she would be filled with joy after seeing him through Wonderland but then once again become overwhelmed with yearning after the video call ends,” she said.

Jung and Choi both play characters who work for the company behind the Wonderland service as planners. Jung’s Hae-ri is introduced as being raised by digital versions of her parents on Wonderland after they died when she was young.
Casting Jung as Hae-ri was a priority for Kim, as it reminded him of a similarly odd role she had in one of his previous films, “Family Ties” (2006), in which she played a daughter who lived with two mothers.
“Jung is an actor who never lets you down,” Kim said. “She has a way of portraying a unique role to be universally relatable.”
“Wonderland” features a special cameo by actor Gong Yoo as an addition to the star-studded lineup.

Tang recalls first meeting Gong during the pandemic in a video call.
"Even that seemed like using Wonderland,” she said. “He probably thought I had a big head because he told me he was seeing me through a large-screen monitor.”
“Wonderland” premieres on June 5.

Star-studded sci-fi film and thrillers to hit local theaters in June




By Lee Gyu-lee


Local theaters are gearing up to showcase a diverse range of films ranging from sci-fi to thriller genres, including the highly anticipated ensemble film "Wonderland."


Led by director Kim Tae-yong, who previously helmed romance films "All for Love" (2005) and "Late Autumn" (2010), “Wonderland” is finally getting its release after a long COVID-induced delay.


The upcoming sci-fi drama film, slated to premiere June 5, will follow a group of people using a video chat service called Wonderland, which virtually recreates a deceased person through artificial intelligence. A young woman (Bae Suzy) requests the service to reunite with her boyfriend (Park Bo-gum) who fell into a coma and a deceased mother (Tang Wei) uses the service to hide her death from her young daughter, communicating with them through video calls.


Actors Choi Woo-shik and Jung Yu-mi will play the planners of the service and Gong Yoo will make a guest appearance as the husband of Tang’s character.

4 K-Dramas And Movies That Feel Like Summer




Summer is nearly here, which means you get the yearly permission to relax and make the most of the warm days ahead.


It is also the perfect time to chill with your favorite K-dramas. Summer is often a metaphor for nostalgia, the first brush of love, a time to rekindle a long-forgotten romance, or even start afresh. Here are four K-dramas and movies which celebrate summer in its many shades and even have summer in their titles.


“Our Beloved Summer”





Choi Woong (Choi Woo Shik) and Guk Yeon Soo (Kim Da Mi) have no idea that the documentary they had filmed way back in high school would become something of a cult a decade later. The two had become close during the course of filming and even started a relationship which lasted five years. Now having gone their separate ways, they have not been unable to move on, despite staying clear of each other. Given the popular demand from viewers wanting to know how life panned out for the two high school students, the producers of the documentary cajole Woong and Yeon Soo to face the camera once again. It is a task in itself, since there seems to be a lot of animosity between the two, but they decide to go along with it. As old feelings resurface, there are a whole lot of regrets and unresolved issues.


“Our Beloved Summer” served as a sweet spot. The slice-of-life romantic narrative evocatively brought out how love is something that needs to be worked on beyond the romantic rose-tinted glasses. Communication is key, as well as how partners need to care for and nurture each other. Choi Woo Shik and Kim Da Mi’s chemistry aside, the couple came across as real and relatable. “Christmas Tree,” mellifluously sung by BTS’s V, made this one a drama to remember in summer.

*** I hope "Wonderland" will be a box-office HIT! Nowadays, a growing number of movies are not even reaching the break-even point unless they make it to the 10 million audience mark. This movie has a stellar casting lineup. I hope it will at least gain profit. “Wonderland”’ cast is considered to be the best among movies to be released this summer.  However, even a collection of well-known actors does not guarantee success. Many movies these days received a lower-than-expected report cards.   :heart3:
