Actress Bae Doo-na, 34, won the highest honor for an international female actress at the Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Awards on Friday in Lanzhou, northwest China, for her lead role in “A Girl at My Door” (2014), according to local media yesterday.
The awards ceremony is known as one of three main film awards in Greater China - which refers to mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau - along with the Hong Kong Film Awards and Taiwan’s Golden Horse Awards. 
Bae won the Best Actress Award in the international film category.
Winners are selected by a judging panel organized by the China Film Association, and votes are cast by subscribers of Popular Cinema, a Chinese film magazine.

Bae debuts for Louis Vuitton
By Sung So-young INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily
10075136.jpg

Louis Vuitton’s 2015 spring and summer advertising campaign featuring actress Bae Doo-na was unveiled yesterday on the luxury brand’s official Instagram account.
In the advertising campaign, shot by renowned French photographer Patrick Demarchelier, the 35-year-old actress gazes ahead, wearing a leather jacket and wide velour pants. 
So far, Bae is the only Asian actress to represent the brand, joining the likes of Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Miranda Kerr and Michelle Williams. 
Bae has led a prolific career in film since debuting as a cover girl on a fashion magazine at age 16. 
She has since taken on various roles, from an archer who stands up against a monster living in the Han River in the 2006 hit film “The Host,” to a blow-up doll who develops human emotions in “Air Doll” (2009). 
Her robust portrayal of the sex doll in the 2009 Japanese film, directed by Hirokazu Koreeda, earned her a chance to work with Andy and Lana Wachowski in “Cloud Atlas” (2012). 
She also recently shot a drama series entitled “Sense8” that was co-directed by the brother-sister duo.

July Jung’s ‘A Girl at My Door’ wins Best First Film award in Stockholm:By Ahn Sung-mi (sahn@heraldcorp.com) KPOPHERALD

Korean filmmaker July Jung won the Best First Film award on Friday at the Stockholm International Film Festival for her feature directorial debut “A Girl at My Door.” 
The movie deals with social justice, child abuse, small-town politics and migrant worker issues.

The 34-year-old director is the first Korean to receive the award at the festival, which is in its 25th year. The jury recognized her for taking a new approach to characters and settings.
“There is an existential excitement in seeing the intersection of basic human needs and in deciphering behaviors that we don’t understand fully, which nevertheless have shocking consequences,” the jury said in a statement.
At the festival, which took place from Nov. 5-16, six other Korean films, including “Revivre” by Im Kwon-taek and “Hill of Freedom” by Hong Sang-soo, were screened as part of the noncompetitive section “Asian Images.” The festival showcased a total of 201 films from 60 different countries.

Actress Kim Sae-ron plays Do-hee in “A Girl at My Door.”
Starring Bae Doo-na (“Cloud Atlas” and “The Host”) and Kim Sae-ron (“The Man from Nowhere”), “A Girl at My Door” centers on the relationship between Young-nam (Bae), a promising police officer who was banished from Seoul to a small seaside village for misconduct, and Do-hee (Kim), a village girl who is abused by her stepfather. When Young-nam tries to help Do-hee, things go well for a while until Do-hee discovers her secrets. 
Jung graduated from Sungkyunkwan University and Korea National University of Arts, where she majored in film and multimedia. She directed a number of short films before “A Girl at My Door,” her first critically acclaimed feature. These include “A Man under the Influenza” (2007), which won a Sonje Award at the 2007 Busan International Film Festival, and “The Dog that Came into My Flash” (2010). “A Girl at My Door” was screened in the “Un Certain Regard” section, a showcase of emerging directors’ films, at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival in May.

Top 10 Korean Films of 2014
By Jason Bechervaise The Korea Times 18-01(158).jpg

2014 has been yet another compelling year for Korean cinema. Audience numbers exceeded 100 million for the third consecutive year spearheaded by the success of the naval epic "Roaring Currents" that broke almost every record to become the most successful film of all time in the local box office. 
Yet, the local market share has dropped to the current 48.9 percent compared to last year's 58 percent, which is reflective of a strong year for Hollywood films including the unprecedented success of Disney's "Frozen" and Christopher Nolan "Interstellar" that both amassed over 10 million admissions. 
Nevertheless, this year has seen the release of a number of accomplished Korean films, though I would argue that commercial films, by in large, have been weaker compared to last year. But independent Korean cinema, especially documentaries are going through a particular exciting phase as evident in the top 10 films I've compiled for this year. 
1. A Girl At My Door
Although it wasn't a hit with audiences, and not all critics responded to it in the same way, it's reminiscent of the very best contemporary Korean cinema has to offer. Directed by July Jung, her feature debut follows a police officer played by the magnificent Bae Doo-na as she is relocated to a remote fishing town to take on the role as the new police chief, and befriends a troubled young girl called Do-hee (Kim Sae-ron) who is being abused by her stepfather. Produced by the renowned auteur Lee Chang-dong, it shares his appetite for engrossing social critique, but the film's delicate dark humor and its focus on female relationships differentiates it from his work.
2. A Dream of Iron
It's been a golden year for documentaries, not least with the tremendous success of "My Love, Don't Cross That River", but "A Dream of Iron" is in a league of its own. Focusing on Korea's ironworks and shipbuilding industries in the 1960s through to the present day, Kelvin Kyung Kun Park provides a fascinating and spiritual look at the country's manufacturing industry through some extraordinary cinematography accompanied by a rich and hypnotic soundtrack. 
3. Manshin: Ten Thousand Spirits
Tackling the subject of shamanism in a very accessible and insightful manner, this documentary follows the life of Kim Keum-hwa, Korea's most prolific living shaman. Directed by Park Chan-kyong, brother of Park Chan-wook, he mixes documentary footage with reconstructed scenes from her earlier life played by Kim Sae-ron, Ryu Hyun-kyung and Moon So-ri and expertly applies it to a historical and cultural framework.
4. Haemoo
Released not long after "Roaring Currents" "Haemoo" directed by Shim Sung-bo, unfortunately, struggled to find an audience, but it is far superior to Kim Han-min's period navel epic. Co-written and produced by Bong Joon ho who worked with Shim on his masterpiece "Memories of Murder" (2003), it's the strongest commercial film of the year owing to its terrific mise-en-scene, lighting and how it utilizes the limited space of a fishing vessel where, based on a true story, the captain and crew smuggle 25 illegal Korean-Chinese immigrants. 
5. A Hard Day
Action-thrillers can often run out of steam, but "A Hard Day" is an enthralling viewing experience from start to finish. Kim Seong-hun's witty and socially conscious script about a detective played by Lee Sun-kyun digging a hole for himself after a hit and run accident explores issues such as corruption has been well-received both home and abroad. 
6. Futureless Things
One of the appealing characteristics of Korean cinema, especially lower budget films, is how they convey different areas of society and culture. This little seen film is an endearing example of what the independent industry is capable of delivering. Kim Kyung-mook's enchanting and episodic narrative takes place in a convenience store painting a portrait of those who are part of contemporary Korean society. 
7. Confession
This impressive debut by Lee Do-yun adds a stylistic flare to the conventional tale of friendship when a faked robbery goes awry and results in the death of a gambling arcade owner that puts the relationship between three close friends in jeopardy. Visually outstanding, and includes notable performances by the leads: Ji Sung, Ju Ji-hoon and Lee Kwang-soo.
8. Hill of Freedom
A genuine criticism of Hong Sang-soo is that he has become repetitive and so his strongest work tends to emerge when he does something different. In his latest feature, he masterfully uses English to his advantage playing with language and stereotypes in humorous and stimulating fashion as Ryo Kase plays a Japanese man who travels to Seoul in search for a woman (Seo Young-hwa) he still has feelings for. 
9. Gyeongju
It's slow-paced, but Zhang Lu's story of a Beijing-based Korean professor (Park Hae-il) searching for a painting in a teahouse in the quaint city of Gyeongju is a thoroughly absorbing tale of nostalgia that shares much in common with Hong Sang-soo's filmmaking tendencies. Also stars Shin Min-a on excellent form playing the teahouse proprietor who forms a connection with the professor. 
10. My Place
The third and final documentary to feature in this top ten, "My Place" focuses on the rarely discussed topic of single motherhood in Korea. Directed by Park Moon-chil who follows his sister and parents as they adjust to the news that their daughter is to raise a child without a father, it's a rare and insightful glimpse into the issues they face.

In addition, JUNG’s debut film secured distribution in a clutch of key markets, including France and the UK. A Girl at My Door will screen in the ‘World Cinema Now’ section. Also featuring a star director turned producer, this time Bong Joon Ho, Haemoo, the debut of Memories of Murder (2003) scribe SHIM Sung-bo, is another work that has invited around the world, to the Toronto, San Sebastian, Vancouver and Dubai International Film Festivals among others. The sea thriller starring KIM Yun-seok and k-pop star PARK Yoo-chun will be featured in the ‘Awards Buzz: Best Foreign Language Film’ lineup as it was chosen as Korea’s official representative to next year’s Academy Awards, though it failed to make the final shortlist.

Celebrating the Year of the Sheep (related excerpt only)
By Kwon Mee-yoo The Korea Times
People born in the Year of the Sheep
People born in the Year of the Sheep are mild-mannered and against trouble. In addition to being soft and sympathetic, sheep people are also creative and elegant. The cool, serene blue color of the year will inspire the sheep to unleash its creative side.
Among "hallyu," or Korean wave, stars, young K-pop singers born in 1991, who will turn 23 next year, fall into the category of sheep people. Suho and Lay of mega-hit boy band EXO were both born in the Year of the Sheep as well as Key and Minho of SHINee; Lee Sung-yeol and Hoya of Infinite; Seohyun of Girls' Generation; and CL of 2NE1.
Actress Bae Doo-na, who appeared in the Wachowskis' 2012 movie "Cloud Atlas," was born in 1979, another Year of the Sheep. Her new film "Sense8," another collaboration with the Wachowskis, is expected to be released in 2015. Singer/lifestyle blogger Lee Hyo-ri was also born in 1979.
Among the mid-aged sheep people born in 1967, actor Song Kang-ho sticks out. Song starred as the late former President Roh Moo-hyun in the award-winning movie "The Attorney" last year and will return to the big screen as King Yeongjo in the upcoming film "Sado."

New year, new movies
By Ahn Sung-mi (sahn@heraldcorp.com) KPOPHERALD
From local star directors to Hollywood sequels, a guide to Korean cinema in 2015 Last year may be remembered as an eventful year for the South Korean silver screen as a number of films rewrote box office history. The periodic action flick “Roaring Currents” drew 17.6 million viewers becoming the most-watched film of all time, while three other films joined the coveted 10 million viewer’s club, including “The Attorney,” “Frozen,” and “Interstellar.”
This year is also marked with a stellar lineup of new films from local heavyweight directors to Hollywood blockbusters -- some starring Korean actors. 
Here’s what we have to look forward to in 2015. 
Return of star directors
“Gangnam 1970” is the final installment of director Yoo Ha’s trilogy of “street series,” dubbed after his first two films that depicted street gangsters -- “Once Upon a time in High School” (2004) and “A Dirty Carnival” (2006). 
The noir action film is set against the backdrop of an exploding real estate market in Seoul’s Gangnam district in the 1970s, a turbulent era under the so-called developmental dictatorship of military strongman Park Chung-hee. Two childhood friends find themselves forced to become enemies, mired with misunderstanding, revenge and conspiracy. The film marks the big-screen debut of heartthrob Lee Min-ho as he joins actor Kim Rae-won. 
The film opens in theaters on Jan. 21. 
Following 2012’s box-office hit “The Thieves”-- which garnered 12.98 million viewers -- director Choi Dong-hoon is back with another star-studded flick “The Assassination.”
Actress Jun Ji-hyun and actor Lee Jung-jae from “The Thieves” star with actors Ha Jung-woo and Cho Jin-woong. The film tells the story of assassins taking out a pro-Japanese group set in Shanghai and Seoul in 1930s. 
The film is slated for release in July. 
Renowned director Im Kwon-taek’s 102nd film “Revivre” will be released here in March, following the critically acclaimed premiere at last year’s Venice Film Festival.
Based on Korean author Kim Hoon’s award-winning novel “Hwajang” (Korean word with two meanings: makeup and cremation), the film centers on a top marketing executive at a major cosmetic company (played by veteran actor Ahn Sung-ki) who falls in love with a young women when his wife is dying of a brain tumor. It is Ahn’s seventh film with the director.
More Hollywood glory days?
Riding on the success of last year’s Hollywood flicks, including “Frozen” and “Interstellar,” this year also brings a lineup of imported blockbusters, peppered with Korean actors, vying to win over the hearts of cinemagoers here. 
“The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” a highly-anticipated superhero sequel to the 2012 box office hit, will arrive in the theaters in April. The viewers will finally be able to see the superheroes fighting their battles in different venues in Seoul, including Mapo Bridge, Saebit Dungdungseom and Gangnam district, as the flick was filmed here last March.
Marvel Comics’ favorite heroes, including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), assemble again to battle their new nemesis Ultron (James Spader). 
Newcomers for this edition feature Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Dr. Cho, a friend of Iron Man played by Korean actress Kim Soo-hyun. 
The Wachowski brothers, credited with the hit movies “The Matrix” and “Cloud Atlas,” are delivering another mind-boggling sci-fi thriller “Jupiter Ascending” in February. 
Korean actress Bae Doo-na will appear in her second Wachowskis’ film since “Cloud Atlas” (2012), alongside Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum and Eddie Redmayne. 
Actor Lee Byung-hun stars in “Terminator Genisys,” the fifth installment in the “Terminator” series which is said to serve as a sequel, prequel and reboot to the series. The former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to his Terminator role after a hiatus from the fourth installment.
