영화 "변호사" The Attorney [Sunday Free Movie Screening] (ENG Sub)

  • Jun 15, 2014 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

To all Korean Lovers! :) I will be organising a meetup for my members on 15 June 2014, 9.30am to socialise and interact with one another. To make the event meaningful, I have arranged a FREE movie screening and pick Attorney which have not been aired in SG yet. We will have Korean lunch at Kent Ridge Station after the session. For those who are driving, there might be free parking near NUS. See you all there! :)

Introduction

The Attorney (Hangul: 변호인; RR: Byeonhoin, also known as The Counsel) is a South Korean commercial film produced by Withus Film and released in December 2013 about attorney Song Woo-seok (played by Song Kang-Ho), who moves from being a very successful lawyer just out to make money to one caring about the civil liberties of the activist high-school student Jin-Woo (played by Im Siwan) he defends. Inspired by the early life of Roh Moo-hyun, the ninth president of the Republic of Korea, before he devoted himself to activism, as well as the famous "Burim case" of 1981, this movie had gathered considerable amount of interests from Korean media even before the release.

PLOT

In the early 1980s, South Korea is torn by student protests over the lack of democracy in the country.

At this time, Song Woo-Seok (Song Kang-ho) is a successful attorney in Busan specializing in tax law. The only reason that he became an attorney is for the money. Unlike other attorneys around him, he hands out his business card to pick up clients.

One day, his views regarding civil liberties are changed by student activist Park Jin-woo (Im Siwan). When Jin-Woo is brutally tortured and put on trial for his activism, Woo-seok decides to defend Jin-woo as his client.

Box office

Within ten days of its release, it had been seen by over 3.4 million people in South Korea. By the end of the year it became the 9th most popular local flick of 2013.

It reached 7.8 million admissions in 18 days, making it the fastest Korean film to pass 7 million admissions since the 2012 film The Thieves, which did it in 13 days. It became the tenth movie to break the 10 million admissions mark in Korea.
