What’s Korean Cinema? 38 – Double Agent

You can take a far more gentle approach to North Korean infiltration into South Korea, as opposed to the animalistic, head chopping ways in Shiri, and when you’re a screenwriter making your directorial debut, it makes sense it is less noisy and more story driven. This is what you’ll face in Kim Hyeon-jeong’s Double Agent from 2003. With Kenny B and Hangul Celluloid’s Paul Quinn.

Running Times: 
00m 00s – Intro/notes and discussion of writer and director Kim Hyeon-jeong
20m 43s – North and South Korean conflict/defections.
28m 08s – Double Agent review.

What’s Korean Cinema? 37 – Shiri

The characters try and prevent South Korea from going boom but 1999’s Shiri went boom commercially and perhaps without the spark it set off commercially, Korean cinema would look a lot different today. The new Korean cinema wave starts here. With Kenny B and Hangul Celluloid’s Paul Quinn.

Running Times: 
00m 00s – Intro/Shiri production background.
33m 00s – Notes on director Kang Je-gyu,
37m 05s – Han Suk-kyu biography/discussion.
62m 25s – Shiri review.

Podcast On Fire 259: The Tyler & Ken Conversations Part 1

This time we bring you something from the archives. Initially done for the Tyler Miller-hosted show Apologize To The Podcast, this was never published but Tyler was kind enough to let us re-use it. Mainly it’s here because it’s good conversation but also anchored by Tyler’s excellent preparation makes it deserving of airing. In this part we talk discovering Hong Kong cinema, starting to write amateur reviews, how the podcast happened, the process of research and production as well as geek out on the likes of John Woo, Ringo Lam and Wong Jing.
