[HanCinema's Event Coverage] Jeonju International Film Festival 2017 Ambience (with Kim Soy) 2017/05/13,
In the course of my interview with Kim Soy she made a very instructive comment about Jeonju that I feels sums up the festival's overall atmosphere quite well. Kim Soy mentioned that in all of the years she has been here (which include work as Closing Ceremony host in 2015), you can always just see actors and directors and what-not hanging out in random nearby cafes.

[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Seeds of Violence" 2017/05/13,
Joo-yong (played by Lee Ga-seop) is doing his military service and like most of his countrymen, not particularly enjoying the project.

[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Avian Kind" 2015/02/21,
Jeong-seok (played by Kim Jung-pal) is searching for his wife (played by Jung Han-bi), who in flashback frequently discusses her wish to undergo a mysterious surgery. Why does she want the surgery? Well, that's...a good question actually. There were about a dozen conversations in "The Avian Kind" I could count that discussed the surgery, but nothing that could be reasonably interpreted as an explanation for why all these women want to be radically transformed,...More
