26 Years (2012) movie trailer

Korean trailer for 26 Years, a revenge movie about five people who plot to assassinate “the man” responsible for the Gwangju Massacre [wiki] in May 1980, in which hundreds of civilians were killed by the army.

The movie was directed by Jo Geun-hyun, and starred Jin Goo, Han Hye-jin, Bae Soo-bin, Im Seul-ong, Lee Geung-young and Jang Gwang etc.

The story is based on a popular webcomic by Kang Full, about five victims – gangster, sharpshooter, lobbyist, cop and businessman – of the Gwangju Massacre who attempt to assassinate the former President who was responsible for the tragedy, 26 years after the incident (which was when the webcomic was published).

The film was almost halted completely with major investors pulling out in 2008 because of political sensitivity (the massacre was real, and the ex-President is still alive). The production was revived with support from crowd funding and private investment, and it opened last week at the top of box office in Korea. Bravo.

Jang Kiha & Faces – I’ve Heard Rumours

Korean music video for I’ve Heard Rumours by indie band Jang Kiha & The Faces. The song is an OST for movie War On Crime, starring Choi Min-sik and Ha Jung-woo, two amazing actors. Interesting song which kinda fits the gangster movie theme…

War On Crime is set in late 80s when government started to crackdown on corruption between organised criminals and civil officials. The film tells the story of a mobster and a high-ranked corruptor who “strived” to maintain their interest during the era.
