Recommended Posts

Hello, @RoseeM. You should let a modetator or admin know you cannot log in. It should be fixed, because it can happen to others as well.

Thank you for all the posts. Your latest one does not have any images though. I am guessing the source site does not allow direct linking.
I am interested in the film because of Lee Beom Soo myself. I don't trust Taewon at all though. And given last time he worked for them sucked.

But it's a movie, so at least any suckage will be short. I do hope it's nice though. Pretty impressive cast, for the most part. It would be a shame.

"Park Sung Woong is going to play as a North Korean military official"

This is actually kind of funny, as he played Lee Beom Soo's character's goon in 'City of the Rising Sun'.
He basically spent the entire movie bullying Lee Jung Jae's character. So this is one funny reunion here.

Some photos from Lee Beom Soo's DC gall. I've seen worse hairstyles on him in his 25-year career, but it was still funny, yes.

I wonder if that was a trend at the time in the North or if they are just so uninspired and eager to tickle people's patriotic spot that they're going for a Kim Jong Un look.
I mean, given the creators, I would not be surprised, but I do wonder. It's a film for abroad as well, so would they be so inaccurate just to take a swing at the North?

Who knows. As long as the film is good, he can look like the Tooth Fairy for all I care.

Liam Neeson Donates Symbolic Sum for Korean Reunification

Source: The Chosun Ilbo

Liam Neeson is donating US$1,515 to a fund preparing for Korean reunification (US$1=W1,177). 

The Hollywood star, who is to play Gen. Douglas Macarthur in a patriotic movie about the Korean War, worked out the sum as $915 from Sept. 15, the date of the amphibious Incheon Landing in 1953, and US$10 per month for the next five years, by which time he believes reunification will be achieved.


Neeson joins the cast of the Korean production "Operation Chromite" here in early January. 

In a letter pledging the money, the actor described the film as a drama about "the blood, sweat, and tears of every soldier [and] civilian... wishing and praying for [Korean reunification]." 

Neeson closed the letter by wishing all his Korean fans and supporters a happy holiday season.
