I’ve seen a couple of Korean movies lately worth commenting on.
Those in Korea are probably too late to see this on the big screen, and those outside Korea may not get a chance, but anyway, Mrs. Jiwaku and I saw the 2013 Korean film The Terror Live this evening.
My general thoughts on The Terror Live were very positive, despite having to make do with my iffy (and waning) Korean-language listening skills. (Probably seeing it at the cinema where we saw it–the Lotte Cinema at Lotte Mart–was the mistake; when I watched another Korean blockbuster a week ago at a different, nicer cinema, it had both Vietnamese and English subtitles.)
By the way, it’s a funny story: a friend of mine actually suggested I check out the movie, if it screened here, but I was pretty sure it wouldn’t. However, Mrs. Jiwaku knew about the movie (since it’s sort of on the indie/low budget side of things) and told me it was screening and that she wanted to see it… so, it seems, the stars aligned!
What did I think of the film?
