Korean Movie Night

  • Feb 16, 2013 · 3:30 PM
  • Private Residence in Castle Rock

This will be a double feature movie night. There will be a break between the two movies to eat dinner (pizza) and talk for a while. We’ll be ordering pizza, so please bring $5 to cover the cost of the pizza. Chanil will be hosting this event, and will have chips, salsa, bottled water, soda, and some beer. You can bring other snacks/drinks to share if you’d like.

Here are the movies we’ll be watching:

Castaway on the Moon

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1499666/?ref_=sr_1

After failing to kill himself by jumping off a bridge, the man is washed up on a deserted island in the middle of Han river, but within view of the city's high-rises. He attempts to escape, but soon accepts his fate and the challenges in living on the island. A reclusive young woman, who takes close-up shots of the moon with her camera and has not left her apartment in a high-rise building in years, spies on him with her camera from her room and comes to think of him as her own alien.

A Bittersweet Life

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0456912/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Sun-woo is a devastatingly effective, but business-like enforcer for Mr. Kang, a mob boss who owns La Dolce Vita, the Seoul nightclub where Sun-woo employs the sloppier, less reliable Mun-suk to keep things running smoothly. Kang is involved in a developing feud with another boss, President Baek, when he goes on a business trip, leaving Sun-woo in charge, and discreetly asking him for a special favor. There's a "special" young woman he's been seeing, named Hee-soo. He suspects she's been seeing another man, and he asks Sun-woo to look after her while he's gone, and find out if she's cheating on him. If Sun-woo catches them together, Kang tells him, he should either phone Kang and tell him, or "finish them off yourself." But Sun-woo finds himself fascinated with Hee-soo, a cellist, and his inability to follow Kang's orders soon brings a world of trouble down on his head. Of course, Sun-woo is fully capable of making some trouble of his own.
FYI: "A Bittersweet Life" is violent, but no more violent than American gangster films like "Casino" , "Goodfellas" and "Scarface".

    Thanks Chanil for hosting. Great venue, great movies, great company! Lee Byung Hun is my new favorite actor &I've just added all his movies to my Netflix list. I think I'm in love!

      I recommend "Addicted" starring Byung-Hun Lee based on what you were exclaiming to be lacking from the movie last night, if you know what I mean. ;)

    Chanil, the address somehow got deleted from my email. Can you please resend it to me? My guest may not be able to come, so that might free up one spot. I'll bring kimchi!
