Sure! Many people love binge-watching Korean drama series. But sometimes you don’t want to get wrapped up and have to go through several episodes to get to The End. Sometimes you just want to watch a good movie!
In “Unpredictable Family”, the two main characters are Yoo Eun-Sung, an aspiring actress, who refuses to give up on her dreams no matter how many times she fails auditions; and Kang Sun-Woo, a talented and promising film director who started his career at age 17. These two characters are surrounded by a bunch of likable, sometimes quirky people who comprise their circle of family and friends.
“Han River Police” is about a team of police officers who serve as a river patrol. The Han River is a major river in South Korea that is iconic and has historical significance. Since the beginning of Joseon in 1392, the river has been a valuable transportation route and facilitated trade and commerce.
A “Royal Secret Agent” is not a job title that requires decoding. It is what it is. The modern-day secret agent 007, James Bond, was sent on an assignment for Her Majesty’s Secret Service. A royal secret agent was also sent on a mission by royal command. He (or she) can investigate and make arrests with the king’s authority.
The setting for “Branding in Seonsu-dong” is Seonsu-dong district, the center of Seoul’s marketing and branding world. (A dong, or neighborhood, of Seongdong-gu in Seoul.) The storyline involves two main characters: Kang Na-eon, a successful tough no-nonsense team leader at a marketing firm, and So Eun-ho, a “righteous” intern at the same marketing firm.
“Queen of Divorce” begins with what looks like an operation being carried out by a special ops team for law enforcement or the military. It’s not! It’s a nasty divorce. A husband kidnaps the wife’s son and is holding him for ransom. The child is his wife’s son; not his son. If she wants him back she had better settle the divorce on his terms.
“Our Love Triangle” begins with a play where two people are expressing their undying love for each other. The play is a production by a group of students who are part of the 27th Class of Hanguk University Theater and Film Department. Yoo Hae Rin stood on her mark, said her lines, and suddenly froze, standing in a position facing the audience. She was probably supposed to be facing the actor who was playing her lover.
