Going to the Movies in Korea!

19 11 2015

by: Raine

Ever wonder what it’s like to go to the movies in Korea? Well, it’s just as swanky as you see in the dramas! At least the Megabox in Haeundae that I went to during the Korea Joa 2015 trip was! I went to see The Silenced as a part of BIFF 2015 and even got to attend the Park Bo-yeong Q&A there.

Also, I must apologize to the cleaning crew at the theatres: I’m sorry I’m such a clutz and that I spilled my two-flavored (cheese and caramel) popcorn all over the floor. And then I knocked my phone onto the ground as well. Perhaps I was too overwhelmed by the experience to remain a non-spaztic human being.

I have to say I’m very excited to present the interview that I had with Dabit from KoffeeDream Entertainment. He’s a gifted singer/songwriter and an overall really fun guy. I had the chance to share some chicken and beer with him and I love that he’s such a chill, down to earth person. Check out the link below to learn more about his acting aspirations and how he creates his tunes.

Q&A with Park Bo-yeong, Park So-dam, and Lee Hae-yeong

I’m a huge Park Bo-yeong fan and it was pretty amazing to see her film “The Silenced” at the 2015 Busan International Film Festival and then to sit in on a Q&A. She was so flippin’ cute in her skirt and heels. Especially next to the bright pink suit that Park So-dam was sporting. Both were adorable, but Park Bo-yeong had this eloquence of speech that was enamoring. I wish I had sat closer so I could’ve asked a question. But the questions asked were quite good and answered a lot of the ones floating in my brain.

Adventures to Suwon and Hwaseong Palace

1 11 2015

by: Raine


I got to explore Suwon and Crown Prince Sado’s palace, posthumously built for him by his son King Jeongjo. It was cool being in a place mentioned in so many dramas and films. And I’m a total history nerd. It was so awesome to be in a place that means so much to Korean history and that had everything seen in sageuk and other dramas. It made all my fangirling and hours of viewership make so much more sense. The next time I travel I would like to spend more more time exploring the palace and other historical sites in depth. I highly recommend it, especially if you’re a drama/film buff. You will see the television and film you love in a new light.

First Interview of Korea Joa 2015: Director General of KOFICE

26 10 2015

photo646596 My first interview of the Korea 2015 was with Director General Kim Deok-jung. My HanCinema review contains the transcript of the interview, but let me just say that Director General Kim is one classy guy. He gifted everyone a bag of goodies on behalf of KOFICE. He cleans up quite nicely in a suit – yes, I had to mention it. And he really engaged the representatives of the foreign media outlets. Cool dude.

Lisa’s Diary – Myeongdong

25 10 2015

by: Raine


Hi all! My first diary piece it out on HanCinema. It covers the neighborhood of Myeongdong as I experienced it before the start of Korea Joa 2015. If you don’t know it, they use it like EVERY DRAMA EVAR! No seriously. Even better…there’s a CAT CAFE! You can pet kitties and drink tasty drinks….and PET KITTIES! So amazing. I’m one cat short of being a cat lady as you all know, and I loved this place so much I went back again! Anywho:
