Korean Movie Night Gives Me A Present: Jung Woo Sung!

14 Oct

The Devine MovieSorry, studying! It’s free Korean Movie Night! Although, technically, wouldn’t watching a Korean movie technically still be considered studying Korean? Maybe something will be written out on the screen that I can sound out. You know. Slowly. Outloud. As this is the only way I can currently read Korean…

But it’s Jung Woo Sung with his movie from earlier this year, The Divine Move, and if you listen to the Podcast, you’ll know that staying home and studying Hangul never stood a chance against my JWS bias. Especially Jung Woo Sung in what appears to be a caper/action movie. I love caper movies! And I’ve never really seen Jung Woo Sung get his bad-ass on, all his movies seem to be him, out there, hunting for my tears.
And I willingly give them to him.

So if you are in the NYC area, and also have a Jung Woo Sung fetish, or just like free Korean Movies, head over to the Tribeca Cinema. The doors open at 6:30, but since the seating is first come, first serve, it’s best to get there sooner. If you go, make sure to say hi, I’ll be the one standing in line studying Korean. (Because why waste a good line wait?)
Professional go player Tae-suk loses his brother to infamous underground gambler Salsu after losing a high-stake game. He is framed for the murder of his own brother and is locked up in prison. He vows for a revenge and trains ferociously. After serving his 7-year sentence, he gets in touch with his brother’s former associate Kkongsu, hermit and blind master player Jesus, and skillful junkyard owner Mok-su and begins formulating a plan to get back at Salsu and his men. Tae-suk slowly penetrates into Salsu’s inner circle and his gambling joint, and eliminates Salsu’s men one by one. But Salsu discovers Tae-suk’s true identity and engages in one final game that’ll seal the fates of 2 men involved.

Actually, come to think of it, I did see him in The Good, The Bad, and The Weird, so I guess this will be his second action movie I’ve seen. Although that one was just…weird, so I choose not to count it.
