New Korean Movies Opening May 24th

23rd May 2012

Usually I post this on Tuesday, but I had a former student visit yesterday so I am a little behind. Tomorrow there will be a total of ten new films hitting Korean cinemas, six of these are produced in Korea.

This first trailer is for a Korean/German documentary called HOME FROM HOME directed by Jo Seong-hyeong and featuring Woo-Za Strauss-Kim and Ludwig Stauss-Kim.

Next is a drama with a title that translates as Children of Heaven (but no official English title has been assigned as of this writing) starring Yoo Da-in and Park Ji-bin and is directed by Park Heung-shik.

U.F.O. looks like it may be interesting..It is listed as a drama, not science fiction, so don’t expect any aliens in the film.

Next is another documentary and another film with no English title assigned by KOFIC yet. This one is Anyeong, Haseyo! featuring the lives of a group of visually impaired children.

EMPTY FULLNESS is yet another documentary, this one directed Im Seong-gu.

Finally we have the movie GRANNY GOES TO SCHOOL. (As accurate as it is, I think this title could use tweaking…) which not only looks like it will be a moving family film, but also seems to have an interesting family unit

Other movies opening this week are: INAZUMA ELEVEN GO (jp), KIROT WALLS (il), MEN IN BLACK 3 (us), MACHINE GUN PREACHER (us)
