She discards her honesty and adapts a cold-blooded approach to overcome her threats and take revenge on whoever is responsible for her debt-ridden life.

Indie film ‘Alice in Earnestland’ proves successful

wjwch620150818132448_P_03_C_1.jpg

Indie film “Alice in Earnestland” recorded over 25,000 admissions in the week following its release, proving a fast success for a film with a production cost of a mere 200 million won ($170,000). 

Its plot follows the comic tragedy of hardworking heroine Soonam, whose trust in earnestness and happiness is ungraciously thwarted.

In her disillusioned state, Soonam devises drastic measures, which some critics describe as cathartic, to put a stop to her hardships. The movie is rated R. 

“Alice in Earnestland” released nationwide on Aug. 13, breaking the 10,000-viewer mark within three days and the 20,000 mark in five days.

ALICE IN EARNESTLAND Hits 30,000 Admissions Mark
The KAFA Product Took Six Days to Cross the 20,000 Admissions Point and Now Stands on 33,355 Admissions

by Kobiz Reporter

KhuWwcegpYbdsLkfQOIO.png
 
Director AHN Gooc-jin's sarcastic comedy drama Alice In Earnestland passed the 30,000 admissions mark. The admissions record is a rare score for an R-rated indie product with a notably low budget.
 
Alice took eleventh place in the weekend box office chart, earning $49,435 from 6,895 admissions between Friday and Sunday. After two weekends on debut, Alice In Earnestland has so far made $227,942 from 33,355 admissions.
 
Another small-sized independent film A Midsummer's Fantasia that opened on 11 June amassed 34,964 admissions after eleven weeks' theatrical run. It is expected that Alice In Earnestland will break A Midsummer's Fantasia’s record soon. 
 
Alice In Earnestland is a comedy drama about a poor woman Soo-nam (played by LEE Jung-hyun) who struggles to pay for her vegetative husband's care. Director AHN studied filmmaking at the Korean Film Council (KOFIC)'s Korean Academy of Film Arts (KAFA), which also handled the production of his feature debut Alice In Earnestland.
 
Alice In Earnestland has drawn the public audience’s attention thanks to actress LEE Jung-hyun’s performance. Though better known as a K-pop icon, LEE originally debuted as a teenage actress in helmer JANG Sun-woo’s movie A Petal, in 1996. LEE’s performance in Alice In Earnestland is known to be shockingly overwhelming. Director AHN has praised LEE's acting and mentioned that Alice In Earnestland would not have become what it is if it were not for LEE's performance. 
 
It is known that Old Boy director PARK Chan-wook helped AHN cast LEE for Soo-nam's role, which LEE's agency initially turned down. “I would always wish to watch and—or—make more of these films, but it isn't easy. While reading the script, I could not think of anyone else but LEE for the role. Who else would be able to express such twisted humors in Alice In Earnestland?”
 
Before it went on cinema, Alice In Earnestland has also received amicable reviews during its festival run: the Jeonju International Film Festival presented it the Grand Prize in the Korean Competition, and afterwards the film went to the Shanghai International Film Festival’s Panorama section.

The movie will compete in the "Dragons & Tigers" section for introducing the most exciting new cinematic talents from East Asia to the world during the 34th edition of the annual festival scheduled for Sept. 24 to Oct. 9.

Vancouver is one of the largest film festivals in North America.

Stars Come Together for Annual Blue Dragon Awards

Source: The Chosun Ilbo

Top actors and actresses gathered for this year's Blue Dragon Awards on Thursday, after shunning the Daejong Film Awards, one of the most prestigious film awards, last week in a suspiciously coordinated boycott to protest organizers' poor management and lack of transparency.

The brightest stars were Yoo Ah-in and Lee Jung-hyun, who took the best actor and actress awards for their roles in "The Throne" and "Alice in Earnestland."

2015112701507_0.jpg

"I think I'm ill-suited for this kind of stage... I still can't believe this [award] is mine," Yoo said in his acceptance speech. 

"I believe I'm here today thanks to all the love and support from the audience," said Lee, who eventually got through an emotional speech after bursting into tears behind the podium.

"I never thought I stood a chance because it was such a small-scale indie film and the other nominees are such great actresses. It's been almost 20 years since I was first recognized as an actress with 'A Petal' in 1996, and won the best new actress award," she said. 

The indie film "Alice in Earnestland" -- which tells with the story of a poor woman who lives a life devoid of hope as she struggles to keep up payments to the hospital that cares for her husband, who is in a vegetative state -- drew about 43,000 moviegoers.

"The Assassination," which depicts Korean independence fighters' struggle against Japanese colonial rule in the 1930s, won the best film award.

Oh Dal-su (for "Ode to My Father") and Jun Hye-jin (for "The Throne") won the best supporting actor and actress awards.

So far this year, three Korean films have drawn over 10 million viewers -- "Ode to My Father" (14.26 million), "Veteran" (13.41 million) and "The Assassination" (12.7 million). 

Domestic films attracted 98.52 million viewers as of Wednesday this year, and are on course to surpass the 100 million mark for a fourth consecutive year.

Who are the winners of 36th Blue Dragon Film Awards?

The 36th Blue Dragon Film Awards, one of the major film award ceremonies in Korea, was held at Grand Peace Palace at Kyung Hee University in Seoul on Thursday.

Despite the chilly weather with snow flurries, celebrities dazzled on the red carpet and in front of the photo wall ahead of the event. The Best Film Award went to “Assassination,” a major box office hit this year, while Yoo Ah-in and Lee Jung-hyun grabbed the spot for the best actor and best actress category, respectively. 

“Even now, this prize feels unfamiliar to me,” Yoo was quoted as saying. “Thanks to all the love people gave toward the film ‘Assassination’ and ‘The Throne,’ I could stand here and receive this honor of an award.”

“Rather than moments filled with happiness and pride, there were many moments filled with embarrassment and bashfulness. I will continue my career as an actor who grows based on continuous self-reflection,” added Yoo, who received a warm hug from “The Throne” costar Song Kang-ho, while getting down from the stage.

Lee, the protagonist in film “Alice in Earnestland,” shed tears after her name was called. “I didn’t expect to be selected for this award due to a series of outstanding and skilled senior actress candidates. I’m really thankful for the award,” she said. 

The Supporting Actor Award was presented to Oh Dal-su of “Ode to My Father” and the Supporting Actress Award went to Jun Hye-jin of “The Throne.” The Newcomer Actor Award was given to Choi Woo-shik of “Set Me Free” and the Newcomer Actress Award went to Lee Yoo-young of “The Treacherous.”

In total, awards in 18 categories were handed out during the night, which also included awards for best cinematography, technical skill, screenplay, director and editing. 

The Blue Dragon Film Awards kicked were first held in 1963, aiming for the greater development of high quality Korean movies.

The Blue Dragon Awards, Korea's traditional movie awards since 1963, have been praised for doling out gongs fairly without bias to movies that recorded strong ticket sales.

The event was held Thursday night at Kyung Hee University and awards were presented in 18 categories.

Among the winners were the "big three" Korean blockbusters this year -- "Ode to My Father," "Veteran" and "Assassination" -- and non-blockbusters like "Alice in Earnestland," "Minority Opinion," "Set Me Free" and "The Treacherous."

The biggest surprise at the 36th event was Lee Jung-hyun from low-budget film "Alice in Earnestland" grabbing the Best Actress Award from five nominees, including hallyu megastar Jun Ji-hyun from "Assassination" and veteran actress Kim Hye-soo from "Coin Locker Girl."

Choi Woo-shik won the Best New Actor Award for "Set Me Free" and actress Lee Yoo Young Best New Actress for "The Treacherous." Both movies failed to excite at the box office.

Best Screenplay went to director Kim Sung-jae and screenwriter Son Ah-ram for "Minority Opinion"

The blockbusters also shared the honors of Best Picture ("Assassination"), Best Director (Ryu Seung-wan, "Veteran") and Best Actor (Yoo Ah-in, "The Throne").

Top award for ‘Assassination’

Source: INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily

The espionage film “Assassination,” directed by Choi Dong-hun, received the top honor at the Blue Dragon Film Awards, which were held at the Hall of Peace at Kyung Hee University, Hoegi-dong, Dongdaemun District, central Seoul, on Thursday night.

“Assassination,” set in 1933 and featuring a stellar cast including Ha Jung-woo and Jun Ji-hyun, was released in July and has attracted more than 10 million moviegoers. 

The awards for Best Actor and Best Actress went to Yoo Ah-in (shown in photo) of the historical film “The Throne” and Lee Jung-hyun of “Alice in Earnestland,” respectively.

“The Throne,” the tale of King Yeongjo (1694-1776) and his son, Crown Prince Sado (1735-62), received four awards, including Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Score. 

“I promise I will keep evolving as an actor,” Yoo said during his acceptance speech.

It was a prolific year for Yoo because his other action flick, “Veteran,” was released in August and attracted more than 10 million moviegoers. 

Lee of “Alice in Earnestland” burst into tears as she made her acceptance speech. “I didn’t expect to receive an award because it was a low-budget film,” she said. 

“Alice in Earnestland” is a black comedy that traces the life of a working-class housewife who struggles to pay off her debts. 

Lee, who debuted as an actress in 1996 but later became a big-name singer in the early 2000s, received numerous awards when she performed as a singer, but this was her second film award since her acting debut. 

The Blue Dragon Film Awards are one of the country’s longest-running annual film awards. It was launched in 1963.

Lee Jung-hyun ‘didn’t expect award at all’

Actress Lee Jung-hyun, who won the Best Actress award from the Blue Dragon Awards, said on JTBC’s “News Room” that she didn’t expect the award at all.

During the latest episode of JTBC’s flagship newscast “News Room,” the singer-turned-actress made a guest appearance and shared some behind-the-scenes stories about her low-budget movie “Alice In Earnestland.”

The presenter Sohn Suk-hee asked, “Yoo Ah-in’s award was predicted by many but frankly for you … did you expect it?” 

She replied, “I never expected it.”

The 35-year-old actress added, “During the first week of the release, only 59 theaters played the movie and the following week, the figure dropped to merely 30.”

“Still, it was touching many people came to Seoul to see the film,” she said. “Although the number of the audiences stood at 43,000, it is a large number for a low-budget movie.”

“I heard the 30,000 moviegoers for an independent film is equivalent to 10 million of a commercial movie,” she added. “I appreciate it.”
