Movies To Watch in Chuseok!!!
I think movie distributor in Korea did it on purpose. My friends back home in Indonesia watched Despicable Me 2 and Monster University 2 months ago!! But, as for us in Korea, we got to be very patient...since those two movies are coming to Korea this coming Chuseok (Thanksgiving Day in Korea).
I don't know why...Despicable Me is 'translated' or changed into 슈퍼배드 (Super Bad) in Korea. Hmm..well, it does have a rather similar idea...in meaning..but..the funny thing is that..even when it is written in Hangeul, still it IS English, right? 'Super Bad'
Or..was the movie actually titled 'Super Bad' even in English?
I need some 'enlightenment'!! *-^
The Korean movie to be watched out for..during Chuseok is '관상' (gwansang) or loosely translated into 'The Horoscope of Face' Hmm...the premise of the movie is that..the Fate of Joseon Dynasty lies in the hands of these people's gwansang. Hmm...sounds a bit hard to comprehend without any English translation. But, still..it's a worth-waiting-for movie. Oh, I don't have to wait until September 17 or Chuseok..coz I heard that it premiers on September 11!!
Who doesn't want to see a movie full A-list Korean stars: 송강호, 이정재, 백윤식, 조정석, 이종석, 김혜수....
Then..another movie to watch with my children would definitely be (몬스터 대학교) Monster University. Mike and Sully are back to retell their story of how they met in college before we knew them in Monster Inc. years back.
anyway..that'll be something to look for..in the coming Chuseok.
