THE FACE READER Crowned King of the Box OfficeBig Start for Period Drama ahead of Chuseok Holiday by Pierce Conran KOFIC
 gdjUiIsqsyTiQsqaIEll.jpg
Box office was brought back to fighting form this weekend after a sluggish early September following the release of the big-budget period film The Face Reader. Directed by HAN Jae-rim and starring SONG Kang-ho, LEE Jung-jae, BAEK Yoon-shik, KIM Hye-soo, JO Jung-suk and LEE Jong-suk, the well-received pictured drew 1.89 million admissions over the Friday to Sunday period. As the film was released on Wednesday, it has already accrued 2.6 million admissions, putting it on the fast track to profitability.
 After the romantic film Rules of Dating (2005) and 2007’s gangster feature The Show Must Go On (also starring SONG Kang-ho), director HAN Jae-rim tackles his first period film with The Face Reader. SONG plays a face reader during the Joseon era who becomes embroiled in a case of courtroom intrigue for the king’s throne. With the Chuseok holiday falling on a Thursday this year (September 19th), which means that Wednesday and Friday will also be public holidays, The Face Reader is expected to put up strong numbers throughout the coming week. Also released to capitalize on the Chuseok holiday was the action comedy The Spy: Undercover Operation, starring SEOL Kyung-gu, MOON So-ri and Daniel HENNEY. However, it has failed to gain the same kind of traction, having amassed only 1.66 million admissions in 11 days.

'Face Reader' Exploits Changing Trends to Race up Film Charts
Source: The Chosun Ilbo
Director Han Jae-rim's "The Face Reader" is fast establishing itself as the nation's next box-office hit. The movie, which revolves around a power struggle in the Chosun Dynasty, attracted over six million viewers by Sunday, within just 12 days of its release.
Pundits say that part of its success can be attributed to its all-star cast, and part to the way in which it has grasped the changing trends of the market in terms of target viewers and themes. 
It already ranks as the third-fastest Korean movie to attract this many viewers after "The Host" and "The Thieves," both of which subsequently went on to break the 10-million mark. The former sold 13.01 million tickets and the latter 12.98 million. 
Since it was released, "The Face Reader" has accounted for 50 percent of all domestic box-office sales. On Friday alone, it was seen by over 900,000 people. This puts it just shy of the daily record of 910,000 for a Korean movie, which was set by "Secretly Greatly" on June 6.
2013092302040_0.jpg

◆ Star-Studded Cast
The movie features six A-listers, including both young and veteran actors. Song Kang-ho, Lee Jung-jae, Kim Hye-soo and Baek Yoon-sik all have proven hits behind them and established fan bases, while promising actors Cho Jung-seok and Lee Jong-suk will draw the interest of young viewers. 
Although Song's titular role propels the plot, all six actors are granted similar screen time and equal importance in the film. 
This kind of star-studded cast helps broaden the film's appeal to a wider audience, given the range of characters and the actors' varying ages.
◆ Engaging Family Flick
Film booking site MaxMovie polled its customers before the Chuseok holiday to find out who they planned to watch the movie with, and some 63 percent of the respondents said they planned to make it a family affair. 
Kim Hyung-ho at MaxMovie said, "While many people take their kids to the movies during the summer holidays, the demographic changes to adults accompanied by their parents for the big traditional holidays." As such, films that can be enjoyed with elderly parents soar in popularity over Chuseok. 
"The Spy," a comedy made specifically for the holiday season, has emerged as the biggest rival to "The Face Reader" at the box office. But while it featured famous actors Moon So-ri and Sol Kyung-gu, the cast was not broad enough to engage teenagers or parents in their 60s. 
No Hollywood productions have also been able to match the success of "The Face Reader" this year. "The Conjuring," a supernatural horror, "Monsters University," an animation, and "Superbad 2" have only ha

'The Face Reader' tops 7 million in audience mark
YonhapNews
SEOUL, Sept. 24 (Yonhap) -- A Korean costume drama about a Joseon era physiognomist has drawn an audience of more than 7 million, a market tracker said Tuesday.
"The Face Reader" surpassed the 7 million milestone in the cumulative audience number on Monday in 12 days since its release, the Korean Film Council (KOFIC), a state agency for promoting Korean films, said.
Directed by Han Jae-rim, the movie is about a talented physiognomist named Nae-gyeong who tries to change the fate of Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) in peril after reading Prince Suyang's future as a traitor from his face. Actor Song Gang-ho played the face reader.
Despite Nae-gyeong's efforts, Prince Suyang takes the throne from his young nephew Danjong in a coup and becomes the seventh king of Joseon in 1453.

'Face Reader' a smart, gorgeous tale of destiny
By CARLA SUNWOO Korea JoongAng Daily

12213759.jpg
Song Kang-ho stars in “Face Reader” as Nae-kyung, a man with a special gift for knowing people just by examining their heads. Provided by Showbox
With an all-star cast like Song Kang-ho, Lee Jung-jae, Baek Yoon-shik and Kim Hye-soo, you might think “Face Reader” has the makings of a hit - and you’d be right. 
Released on Wednesday, “Face Reader” is already dominating the box office, earning 2.5 billion won ($2.30 million) on Wednesday alone and accounting for 78 percent of the day’s ticket sales.
Set in the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1897), “Face Reader” is a tragic yet moving story about a group of people whose destinies are intertwined around a man with a nearly magical ability to read faces. 
The face reader in question, Nae-kyung (Song), has been living a humble life in the mountains with his son (Lee Jong-suk) and brother-in-law Paeng-heon (Jo Jung-suk), when Yeon-hong (Kim), madame of a well-known brothel in the capital city Hanyang comes offering a business proposal. 
Tempted by the possibility of turning things around for himself and his son and brother-in-law, Nae-kyung sets out for the capital.
Once there, it’s not long until Nae-kyung’s knack for reading faces and the future is discovered by members of the royal court. After a few twists and turns, Nae-kyung is brought to the court to advise the king and high-ranking officials.
The first half of the movie is full of laughs, in particular Paeng-heon as a fish-out-of-water in the big city.
But all good things must come to an end, as troubles close to the king begin to loom over Nae-kyung, too. Before long, Nae-kyung finds himself in the middle of a power struggle between Grand Prince Soo-yang (Lee Jung-jae) and the faithful scholar Kim Jong-seo (Baek). 
Although the plot is somewhat predictable, the storytelling is done with style and all the actors bring much nuance and depth to their roles. In particular, Kim and Lee are riveting as ambitious, calculating and charismatic characters, both bringing unique forms of charisma.
Song, as always, has a strong presence on screen, displaying an array of emotions and behaviors, sometimes lazy, others drunk, but more importantly a father who is willing to put his life on the line for the sake of his only son. Paeng-heon, Nae-kyung’s brother-in-law and sidekick, brings humor, while bad boy Prince Soo-yang is a forceful villain, as fascinating as he is cruel and scary. Newbie Lee Jong-suk also proves his worth as a rising Hallyu star. 
In addition to the superb casting of some of Korea’s finest actors, the cinematography, costumes and set designs are also truly delightful. The pace of the story - galloping toward doom - is fast enough to keep the viewers attuned. 
However, it does not take a magical face reader to guess how this tale will unfold, and most viewers will be able to guess the ending. 
Although the movie kicks off with laughs, it’s not long before jokes give way to a more sinister, action-packed sequence of events. But unlike the non-stop frenzy of summer blockbusters, there is thoughtfulness and nuance in “Face Reader” that lurks behind each pull of the bow and swipe of the sword.
The movie transcends just the subject of reading character and faces, touching on the value and significance of family. The irony of subscribing to a world belief system based on destiny is questioned and the ending leaves viewers wondering about whether the story was really fate or a series of self-fulfilling prophecies. Or, as Nae-kyung puts so eloquently, “knowing how high the waves will be don’t stop them from crashing down.” 
“Face Reader” is a superb tale that asks big questions about life but also highlights the mundane, precious moments that inevitably lead to death.

“The Face Reader” to Donate Profit to Charity
by Kang Jung Yeon TENASIA
art_1380032269.jpg
The production company of highly-successful Korean period-set pic “The Face Reader” will be making big donation.
Jupiter Film, the production company of “The Face Reader,” will be donating half of the film’s profit to Korean charity foundation The Beautiful Foundation, an official with the charity told TenAsia over the phone Wednesday.
The official explained that Jupiter Film agreed to donate half of the film’s profit to The Beautiful Foundation during the movie’s filming. It is unusual to decide to donate a movie’s profit in such an early stage, since the success of the film can not be predicted.
The donation will be made after the film ends its successful run, now grabbing over 7 million moviegoers in only two weeks of its opening, thanks to the long Chuseok holiday, Korea’s Thanksgiving Day, last week. The production company will calculate the profit and then make the donation, the official added.
Starring Song Kang-ho, Lee Jung-jae, Cho Jung-seok, Lee Jong-suk and Kim Hye-soo, the film centers on a talented face reader Nae-kyung (Song) who tries to stop Sooyang Daegun’s (Lee Jung-jae) conspiracy to rise in revolt.
Founded by Seoul’s mayor Park Won-soon, The Beautiful Foundation is a philanthropic group that promotes volunteerism and community service and addresses issues of income inequality.

“The Face Reader” Takes 3rd Crown on Weekend Box Office
by Lee Hye Ji TENASIA Korean period-set film “The Face Reader” achieved noticeable success after taking the third top spot on Korean weekend box office.
“The Face Reader” pulled in over 641,000 moviegoers during the weekend from September 27 to 29, securing its top place for three weeks running, the Korean Box Office Information System (KOBIS) showed on Monday.
The star-studded film, starring Song Kang-ho, Lee Jung-jae, Cho Jung-seok, Lee Jong-suk and Kim Hye-soo, has now surpassed eight million audiences in less than 20 days of its opening with its interesting subject of face reading and story of success and fail.

Film sparks 'face-reading' buzz
By Yun Suh-young The Korea Times
14-01(49).jpg

“Eyes that are slanted upwards can bring you wealth,” a fortune teller, dead-serious, tells a moviegoer at the Daehan Theater in Chungmuro, southern Seoul, on Monday, during a promotional event for the hit movie “The Face Reader.”
“The same goes for the nose. Don’t fix your nose with plastic surgery in haste. (Depending on the shape) that’s where your wealth might be destined to come from.”
“Face readers,” whose “skills” are to read faces and tell about a person’s personality and fate, the most unfashionable practitioners of the profession that is fortune-telling, are an odd fit to the neon-lit, 21st century multiplex.
However, these fortune tellers are now experiencing a surge in interest thanks to the immense success of The Face Reader, which is expected to sell its 10 millionth ticket in the coming weeks.
“We always do various events to promote movies,” said Kim Hyung-ho, a general manager at Max Movie, an online movie promotion site.   14-02(44).jpg

“For The Face Reader, which could prove to be a big hit, we thought it would be fun to bring real face readers before the screening. That would give moviegoers a better feel for the movie as well.”
The movie is a historic thriller that stars Song Kang-ho as Naegyeong the face reader, who is summoned by ailing King Munjong of the Joseon Kingdom (1392-1910) to identify the potential threats to his heir and the throne.
Naegyeong soon finds himself in the middle of a power struggle between Kim Jong-seo, a faithful subject to the king, and the ambitious Grand Prince Suyang, who is aiming to take over the throne by slaying the king’s nephew next in line.
Face reading is less an essential part of the plot than an excuse to throw an unassuming common man in the middle of a bloody royal mess.
Nonetheless, bringing the face reader to the theater seemed to be an effective marketing move, judging by the long line of moviegoers fronting his booth in a two-hour event that continued until 7 p.m. Most of the people in the lines seemed to be in their 20s and nearly all of them were women.   14-03(34).jpg“The Face Reader” is expected to hit the 10 million audience mark in the coming weeks. “I always wanted to get my face read, so I thought this was a good opportunity,” said 22-year-old Jung Yeon-ju, who came with a friend.
“It was a new and entertaining experience for me. I had negative impressions about face reading, but now I don’t.”
Her friend Kim Bo-ra was just as impressed.
“I think face-reading is correct to a certain degree because I feel that my first impression of someone is usually accurate. But I don’t believe in it 100 percent.”
At age 45, Hong Jin-hyang was one of the oldest people in the queue.
“I had my face read while waiting for my daughter. I paid for ‘saju’ reading a couple of times, but this is the first time I had my face read. I found it believable because he was giving me predictions that were both good and bad,” she said.
Hong Sang-pyo, the face reader at the theater, was eager to claim face reading as a credible profession, saying the skills were a result based on integrative, comprehensive study. Well, you can’t blame a man for being devoted to his job.
“‘Gwansang’ (the Korean word for face reading) is all about looking at a person comprehensively. It’s more than just about the appearance. The voice, the tone of speech, behavior — these are all part of what we are trying to read through,” said Hong.
“Most of the participants I saw today were young, most of them born in the 1980s and 90s. I guess this is because this is the age of people that are most concerned about their future, including job prospects.
“I looked at their wealth and career fortunes and also their fate in relationships. That means I studied their forehead, eyebrows, eyes, nose, lips, philtrum and ears.”
The demand for face-reading, saju and other forms of fortune telling feed on anxiety, says Kwak Keum-joo, a psychology professor at Seoul National University.
“It’s in human nature to be curious about their future. I think people are interested in fortune telling because they’re anxious about the present. When they hear the predictions, they have a tendency to rationalize their situation,” said Kwak.
“But anxiety is actually a positive emotion in the sense that it becomes an impetus to work hard and move forward. Still, people will always want a sense of certainty.”
“Older people in their 40s and 50s obviously have a clearer idea of what their future will look like than young people in their 20s. Young people have to deal with so many uncertainties and possibilities in deciding what to do and how to live,” Kwak added.
“Women tend to be more emotional than men and more sensitive to anxious feelings. There are of course individual differences, but in general, women are more emotion-sensitive which makes them seek fortune telling more than men.”
Bo-eun Dosa, president of the National Fortune-telling Society, said, “people should not believe in face reading with blind faith.”
“What is more important is the person’s attitude and positive mindset. We all are capable of changing our own fate. No fate can be perfectly predicted. The outcomes of life all depend on the efforts of that person.”

Some of the country’s most talented and popular stars, namely Ahn Sung Ki, Lee Byung Hun, Kim Hye Soo, Won Bin, Lee Bo Young and Kim Rae Won, have gathered in one spot for a special photo shoot.
Commemorating the 20th year since the birth of Korean Committee for UNICEF, six stars who have been appointed as the special UNICEF representatives, have decided to attend a photo shoot to be included in the December issue of InStyle.

With a packed schedule as always, Lee Byung Hun traveled from the country side, where he was filming the movie Memories of the Sword, while Lee Bo Young came directly from volunteering in Congo. This will also be Won Bin’s first time doing a group photo shoot.
