[K-Movie] Upcoming Film ‘Love, Again’ Provides Comic Relief in A Realistic Story That Viewers Can Relate

A new romance comedy movie is about to come your way this November. Starring Kwon Sang-woo, Lee Jung-hyun and Lee Jong-hyuk, “Love Again” is one of the newest Korean comedy films to hit the cinemas, presenting a realistic story of marriage, divorce and romance of modern-day men and women with an identifiable message.

In this film, Kwon Sang Woo plays the role of Hyun Woo, an average man who has gone through a divorce ceremony and is enjoying his single status, until he suddenly finds himself crossing path with his ex-wife again. He will be reuniting with Lee Jong-hyuk 15 years after starring together in “Once Upon a Time in High School”, as well as Sung Dong-il in “The Accidental Detective” series.

Meanwhile, Lee Jung-hyun is set to offer fresh, new delight to audiences with her all-time comic and realistic character Sun-young. Joining the cast is actor Lee Jong-hyuk, who takes on the role of Sang-chul, a character of interest who completes the twisted triangle between the main characters.

Film Synopsis:
After the embarrassing divorce ceremony, Hyun-woo (played by Kwon Sang-woo) returns to the single life that he dreamed of and hopes to enjoy his freedom forever. Just six months later, Sun-young (played by Lee Jung-hyun) comes back into his life as the love interest of Sang-chul (played by Lee Jong-hyuk), an old friend from high school.

[K-Movie] New Horror Film, ‘METAMORPHOSIS’ Gets Intense with Devil Transformation and Exorcism

“The devil can transform into anyone.”

Anyone could be the demon in disguise. It could be your closest friend, your family member, or even a stranger. In METAMORPHOSIS, Kang-gu’s family was faced with extreme confusion and fear when bizarre things come knocking their way one after another ever since they moved into a new home. Turns out that a devil is living amongst them as it transforms into one of the family members, leading to truly horrific results.

Introducing an unexpected subject matter in this film, METAMORPHOSIS is set to thrill audiences with its intense plot, presenting a new vision of horror that is uniquely Korean. This film stars veteran actors Bae Seong-woo, Sung Dong-il and Jang Young-nam, joined by newcomers Kim Hye-jun, Cho Yi-hyun and Kim Kang-hoon.

During its opening week, METAMORPHOSIS topped the Korean box office and raked in over 770,000 admissions, which was pretty impressive for a locally-made horror movie.

In the film, Bae Seong-woo perfectly executed the difficult task of being an exorcist and an uncle to a family harassed by the devil, while Sung Dong-il challenged himself to playing dual roles in his first horror film. Actress Jang Young-nam is also expected to show a side of her that has never been seen before in METAMORPHOSIS, whose performance will confirm to the audience that the devil really do exist.

Film Synopsis:

When a devil, which can morph into a human being, invades Kang-gu’s family and creates doubt and suspicion among them, his brother Joong-su (played by Bae Seong-woo), who is a pastor must come to their aid. But he’s reluctant to do so because of his failed exorcism in the past, which resulted in the death of a young girl. He has little choice to perform one last exorcism for the sake of his family…
