There is not a single asian drama out there that I find interesting, well, from those that I were able to surf in the net this past few weeks. Here I am again veering my attention to the big screen and here’s what I’ve found. I hope you guys will find time to watch them also so we can all discuss them or better yet if you’ve seen it already buzz me in and give me spoilers, lots and lots of it.
A sexy drama starring Uhm Jeong-hwa recently seen in Get Karl, Oh Soo Jung and Park Yong-woo (Musa, Blood Rain, For Horowitz). Uhm and Park play a couple who have been married for several years but are able to maintain their passion for each other despite their financial worries. They soon become acquainted with another couple Lee Dong-geon (My Boyfriend Is Type B) and Han Chae-yeong (Delightful Chun yang, Wild Card, Bet On My Disco) who seem to have every luxury imaginable. However their love has cooled considerably since they were married. To spice up their marriage they find themselves in a night of wife -swapping.
MISSION POSSIBLE: KIDNAPPING GRANNY K.
Three foolish and hopeless guys decide to abduct Granny K played by Na Moon-hee (You Are My Sunshine, Crying Fist, My Name is Kim Sam Soon). The kidnappers had a very difficult time holding on to their hostage whose networth is worth a fortune but her children refuse to pay the ransom of $50,000. The granny raises the money to $50,000,000 and schemes to get it from her children.
This comedy also stars Yoo Hae-jin (Tazza, Mapado), Kang Seong-jin (Apt, Two Cops 3), Park Sang-myeon (My Wife Is a Gangster, Baby Alone) and Yoo Geon (Dasepo Naughty Girls) and directed by Kim Sang-jin (Attack the Gas Station and Kick The Moon).
2 FACES OF MY GIRLFRIEND
23-year-old Gu-chang has never been kissed and his friends always make fun of him not having a “proper” experience. One day, he picks up a lost purse, which leads him to meet the owner of that purse, Ani. He falls in love with this lovely girl who is also a bit strange and wild. She seems to be a perfect girlfriend for Gu-chang only until he finds that Ani has multiple personality disorder due to a harsh memory of her ex-boyfriend’s death. Ani is just one of her alternative characters
This comedy stars Bong Tae-gyu (See You After School, Birth of a Family, Ssunday Seoul, Attic Cat) as Gu Chang and the rather odd Ani played by actress Jeong Ryeo-won. This is her first movie. She was seen in TV dramas such as Hello Francesca, My Name Is Kim Sam Soon and Which Star Are You From. In the movie, she plays a naïve and dreamy girl named “Ani”, but suddenly turns into the violent “Hani”.
