Film critics Darcy paquet and Jason Bechervaise join us in the studio for Movie Spotlight! This week, we tackle two local releases.
The first is “The Night Owl(올빼미)” by first-time director Ahn Tae-jin, starring Ryu Jun-yeol and Yoo Hae-jin. It’s a historical drama set in the mid 1600s centering around the sudden death of a crown prince and an acupuncutirst.
Jason and Darcy also review “Men of Plastic(압꾸정)” by director Lim Jin-soon. Don’t be fooled by the main cast Ma Dong-seok, aka Don Lee, as there is very little action in this movie set in the neighborhood of Apgujeong. He plays a man who grew up in the neighborhood, who can get things done by using personal connections. The comedy film also features Jung Kyung-ho, Oh Na-ra, and Choi Byung-mo.
