  1. This is the first time I ever walked out of a Korean film, though I’ve been tempted in the past. It’s not a particularly bad film. It’s just that I got fed up with it and didn’t care enough about anyone in it to make me stay for the second hour. I wasn’t bothered whether So-jin was dead or missing. I was fed up with the regular as clockwork brooding, vaguely scary scene every 5 minutes. I suspected the ending might not resolve everything, and thought: I’d rather be reading a book.

    Reading Cloud Atlas at the moment – which Bae Doo-na will be appearing in when the Wachowskis make the film. Really can’t put the book down it’s so good.
