It’s getting to be the case that the more interesting stuff over on Darcy’s site is in his What’s New page rather than his forums.

Here are his predictions for 2007:

  1. Park Jin-pyo’s VOICE OF A MURDERER is going to be a major critical and popular hit (at least 6 million tickets)
  2. There will be about 80 Korean films released in 2007, down from 103 this year
  3. Korean comedy will make a comeback
  4. Kim Ki-duk will fight with the press, and will not release his new movie in Korea
  5. Total annual admissions will drop for the first time in a decade
  6. Jeon Do-yeon (below) will win Best Actress at Cannes

Darcy’s been Jeon Do-yeon’s number one fan for as long as I can remember. But it would be great if prediction 6 came true.

I’d like to quote his thinkpiece in full, but that would be lazy of me. Go visit his page and read it for yourself. Stimulating reading.
