3rd June 2012
I was away in Incheon the past weekend for the wedding of a former student and so I could not post on this site as I wanted. However, I will quickly post this information before heading off to sleep. We have two new movies coming out on DVD this coming week. One is on my ‘must have’ list, the other..well.. if someone gave it to me as a gift, I would not refuse, but I am not actively thinking of buying it.
The one I must own, despite its Bollywood-ish running time, is CAFE NOIR directed by Jeong Seong-il and starring Shin Ha-gyun and Jeong Yoo-mi. Number of disc: 2/ Subtitles: Korean and English/ Rating: for mature audiences/Format: 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen/ Audio: Dolby Digital 2.0/ Running Time: 198 minutes/ Suggested Retail Price: 25,300 KRW/ Available: June 8th.. Oh! and it comes with a 16-page booklet.
The movie pictured on the right in the image is DANCING QUEEN, directed by Lee Seok-hoon and starring Hwang Jeong-min and Uhm Jeong-hwa. This film did quite well in theaters and both of the main actors are quite good. In fact, the only reason I am not considering buying it right away is because it is primarily a comedy..not my favorite genre.. Number of discs: 1/ Subtitles: Korean and English/ Rating: for ages 12+/ Format: 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen/ Audio: Dolby Digital 5.1/ Running Time: 124 minutes/ Suggested Retail Price: 25,300 KRW/ Available: June 8th
