i spent so much of my weekend watching korean movies that it took me a couple of seconds to understand why my sister is not speaking korean.
i watched 6 korean movies, most of which i don't even know the title but i enjoyed every single one of them. I watched Il Mare, which i heard was remade(?) by Hollywood. the Lakehouse, starring Sandra and Keanu. I enjoyed Il Mare a whole lot so i'll probably watch the Lakehouse too.
I don't know what I find most endearing in the korean movies, maybe it's the few characters (unlike Filipino movies which have the tendency to include the whole station's artists' lineup), clever dialogue or the fantastic actors. (cute ones too, heehee)
here are my assessments:
3 out of the 6 korean movies i watched, a lead actor died of a disease.
6 out of 6 had a "piggyback ride on the street" moment
4 out of 6 had super uber cutie lead actor
3 out of 6 had the lead actor almost bugbog to death
still, i thoroughly enjoyed every single one. (i said that already)
Also watched Pink Panther and.. hmm.. i forgot. anyway, i was infront of the TV most of the time and it gave me one huge weekend headache.
i was going to say it's Monday that's why i have the blues, but then I realized it's a Tuesday so i guess i have no excuse. gotta get back to work.
