Korean Movies in Theaters 2013: Week 41

7th October 2013

Sigh– While everyone else is down in Busan at the film festival, do you know where I was? Sequestered in Seoul attending a seminar that required me to give up my phone, internet and books. It was to prepare me for writing some national exams.. and it was a lot of fun..except I could not leave the compound and even moving from building to building required me to be accompanied by a security guard!

Well, even if I don’t make it down to Busan, there are other things to do.. Like check out the two lastest films opening this week; HERO and HWAYI.
