    YA OPENING IN ONLY AREAS WITH A LARGE KOREAN POPULATION. THEN THE COMPANY FALSELY REPORTS BACK IN KOREA THAT THE MOVIE WAS A HUGE SUCCESS. TYPICAL KOREANS ALL ABOUT A FALSE IMAGE.

    • OneJD says:

      Of course they film is playing in areas with large Korean populations. If you were responsible for distributing a film in country with a primary language that was different than that of the film, you would do the extact same thing (presuming you’ve any business acumen). You see, the movie business is a also a money making business, not a charity. You’ll distribute the film where it makes financial sense, just as has been done here. It’s the same reason why certain independent films, even though filmed in english, are given only limited release rather than wide release.

      Secondly, it’s certainly possible for the film to do well, and any reporting of it doing well isn’t necessarily false. “Well” is a relative term and you should take into consideration that it’s being shown in a country where the primary languge isn’t Korean. What might be considered “well” for a film like Harry Potter would be unthinkable for a film like this, or even many independent films that are filmed in english, and what is “well” for a film like this or many independent films that are filmed in english might be considered poor for a film like Harry Potter. In other words, the film can do well, and it likely will, according the the reasonable expectations for the film, not those of some Hollywood blockbuster film. That isn’t creating a false image or misleading at all.

      But there is something deplorable and reprehensible here, and it’s your comments. For some inexplicable reason, you’ve criticized the Korean film industry and then decided to attribute some negative characteristic to all Koreans, which is essentially racism. You’ve come here to a Korean entertainment blog to discriminate against Koreans. I suppose you’re either too stupid or too ignorant to care, but the world already has enough problems, it doesn’t need you to contribute to it. Knock it off.

    • lay says:

      why not in such area? the majority of non-korean/asian americans are too lazy to read the subtitles … they wouldn’t even give the film or any non-english film a chance.

      • eboy07 says:

        You gotta note that anime is more popular and well known then korean movies in the US. And the so called lazy americans do watch japenese anime on the net whit english subs.

        • lay says:

          still it doesn’t negate the fact that a lot of non-asian americans are too lazy to watch movies with subtitle … and this is not something that i made up.

          • eboy07 says:

            Its true what you said but you will be suprisesd by the number who disaprove whit you. Dont stereotype it too far whit the term americans are too lazy.

            • lay says:

              yeah … i guess you’re right. and don’t you think ‘don’t stereotype it too far …’ should also apply whenever you make all those comments about k-pop lovers and k-pop in general?

              • eboy07 says:

                Yes in general i make those comments. But not all kpop lovers are deluded. You better pay attention of my writing style of how i said some kpop fans in general not all. You could learn from that too by saying some americans are lazy. And to tell you the truth in every race or culture there will be lazy people.

    ALSO WELCOME BACK WRITER OR IS IT WRITERS OF POPSEOUL:
    HERE’S A REPOST SINCE YOU WERE ENJOYING YOUR WEEKEND OFF AS USUAL:

    IT’S FUNNY HOW POPSEOUL TAKES A BREAK FROM POSTING EVERY WEEKEND. IF YOU WANT TO BE CONSIDERED A SERIOUS NEWS WEBSITE, YOU SHOULD REALIZE NEWS DOES NOT STOP JUST BECAUSE IT’S THE WEEKEND.

    IT’S BAD ENOUGH THAT POPSEOUL REPORTS BARELY 1% OF THE NEWS DURING THE WEEK. DROPPING TO 0% JUST BECAUSE IT’S THE WEEKEND WON’T HELP IN YOUR WORDS “POPSEOUL! to be one of the top searched and viewed kpop website.”

    • American Girl says:

      ur really hardcore!lolz. but thats true.

    • OneJD says:

      The bbc, cnn, msnbc, new york times, etc., those are “serious news websites,” and therefore they do update their news stories many times within even an hour.

      In general, however, no blog about entertainment media is a “serious news website,” because entertainment media is not “serious news.’ Thus, there isn’t any need to update as frequently as those aforementioned sites if it means to achieve its goal “to be one of the top searched and viewed kpop websites.”

      Thus, taking a break on the weekends, which you argue prevents the site from achieving its own goal, is simply untrue. It’s entirely possible and, in fact, the proof is in the pudding, I would say, as the site is already one of the top searched/viewed kpop websites.

      If they want the site to be bigger then yes, they’ll need to blog more frequently. However, they seem content in what they’ve put together so far and it’s for them to determine whether they want to achieve more, not some racist prat.

      • ashley says:

        but other kpop websites have no problem updating every hour like Allkpop and Nagian, so u don’t have to be a real news site too update your post.

        • eboy07 says:

          I agree whit this too.

        • OneJD says:

          That’s right, “you don’t have to be a real news site to update your post.” Similarly, “real [entertainment] news sites” don’t necessarily update every hour. But you seem to think that frequency of updating has everything to do with how “real” an entertainment news website is so, I must ask, how frequently should they update? Every hour? Once every hour and a half? Or maybe twice an hour?

          The point is, any distinction based on frequency of updating is arbitraty. You might say one hour, I might say one hour and 10 minutes. Rather, how “real” a news site is has more to do with the QUALITY of reporting rather than the QUANTITY.

  5. pat says:

    “most sunniest “is really BAD English…… one can only imagine the subtitles. Pass. Korea only does this to itself. If one wants to be taken seriously get the PR people in Korea an
    English dictionary. Things like this really really matter if “world star ” projects are to anything more than a joke.

    • Amazed says:

      Agreed with the terrible English, but I would at least give the movie a chance. It’ll be in Korean at least (if you can understand, try not to mind the subtitles).😛

  6. Erin says:

    Dress up like in the 80s… aka dress up like a normal korean.

  7. eunishanel says:

    This movie looks okay, but at least check the grammar. The Most Sunniest….. Terrible…

    • OneJD says:

      Why do you assume that it comes from poor grammar rather than a play on words? You’re probably too young to know, but in the 90s a U.S. film came out called “Can’t hardly wait.” That isn’t proper grammar either should someone have handed the filmmakers an English dictionary too? no, the film was named that way intentionally.

      I can understand criticism for the benefit of change, i.e., constructive criticism, but this criticism is borderline hateful. for shame.

      • Amazed says:

        You have a valid point, but so does eunishanel. Pretty much any translation of Korean into English has been butchered to some degree, and you can’t refute that. And they don’t even have to be translations. Check the random English lyrics of some Kpop groups – really funny.

        I can see what you mean by “Can’t Hardly Wait”, but I’m sure this mistake wasn’t intentional.😛

  8. pat says:

    My crit is not hateful. Korean acts are always talking about making it in the US so they
    need to learn what turns Americans off. Sloppy English is just unprofessional no matter how much Korean fans hate to see ANYTHING Korean critized. But thats how “artists” improve. If
    everything is always praised mediocrity will always be good enough.

    • OneJD says:

      I’m confused, are your posts aimed at BoA, Se7en, Rain, etc.? I wasn’t aware they read http://www.popseoul.com. In fact, I’m willing to wager that they don’t read the site on a regular basis and, even if they did, I doubt they read comments posted by innane users like yourself.

      One statement in a particular context can be perfectly acceptable, but the same statement in a different context can be completely unacceptable. The use of the n-word, for example, is acceptable in only certain circumstances, but is generally prohibited in most others. Or, by way of another example, talking negatively about one’s boss with colleagues can be fine, but saying the same thing to your boss is a good way to get fired.

      Your statements, if made directly to those Korean pop acts, could be taken as constructive criticism. There are no such Korean pop acts here, however, and instead you’ve got a public forum where anybody, including those who dislike Koreans or are prejudiced towards Koreans (and visit and post on this site), can see it. Thus, if your aim is to improve Korean entertainment, you’ve failed awfully and instead given those who dislike it even more support.

      Now, are you an idiot and didn’t realise this? Perhaps. Or are you just as hateful as I originally suspected? Possibly. Either way, you need to smarten up. Either acknowledge that THIS forum isn’t an appropriate place for your comments or acknowledge that your comments are hateful.

    😦 only that movies on LARGEST KOREAN POPULATION!😦
    I am not Korean and i love the culture , dramas, and music!!

  10. xu says:

    its so terrible

  11. lay says:

    terrible english or not, i bet this movie is so much better, story-wise and acting-wise than some of the craps produced by hollywood.

  12. eunishanel says:

    Thanks for your comment. I do appreciate it, but it’s my opinion. If my comment doesn’t benefit anyone, then forget it.But if it does, I think something must be done…

  13. Christy says:

    Yikes! I hope somebody edits the tag line of that poster. Double superlative is bad English grammar.

    Anyway I’d love to see this movie!!!

  14. joy says:

    i’ve been waiting for this to release in the states!!! the tagline may be flawed but this film’s worth a shot.

  15. _VIP says:
