I’ve been enjoying this month. Even though I only managed to get to one screening of E J-yong’s films at the KCC (which happens to be my favourite one), I’ve used the month as an opportunity rewatch my DVDs of Untold Scandal and Asako in Ruby Shoes – both of which I enjoyed much more the second time round – and to introduce myself to Dasepo Naughty Girls, which is impossible not to like. I’m looking forward to Actresses on Thursday. Not just because Lee Mi-sook is in it, but because it’s followed by Q&A with the director himself. Don’t forget, this one is at the Apollo Piccadilly, not at the KCC, so you need to book through the cinema’s box office linked below.
Director: E J-yong
Running Time: 104 min
Screening Date: 6:30pm, February 23, 2012
Theatre: Apollo Cinema, Piccadilly Circus
Director E J-yong mixes reality and fiction by bringing together top actresses to play themselves on screen. On Christmas Eve, in order to shoot Vogue’s special edition, six actresses ranging from their twenties to their sixties come together at a studio. This should be the first attempt in Korea to break the rules of the fashion world.
