So, after a long while, I visited a certain site I go to when I want to know what is new in Korean Cinema and guess what I found?
The Korean version of Zero! What’s funny about this is that the setting is Japan. Somewhere in a secluded place near the Army base but definitely Japan. Though, you will be better off winning the lottery than finding a Japanese actor in this movie. There are a lot of similarities too, from the unusual uniforms of years long gone, to the Ojou-sama like characters. Even the story has some similarities too, like how the supernatural might not be so supernatural.
Sadly, we are back to the first days of AGAMD meaning that there are no subs for this. Well, at least not any that I could find. There probably are subs on AsiaTorrents but like I said, I was banned from there (for having two accounts) so I don’t have access to it anymore. If anyone knows if they have subs, do let me know so I can go on the hunt. If they exist, someone somewhere else will have them.
So, no subs and my Korean being limited to titles, confession and swear words means that I understood only from visual input alone. I would probably get the same amount of understanding from this movie if I had watched it without sound. But really, my eyes are enough! If I was to choose between understanding Korean but not seeing and seeing but not understanding Korean and not hearing, well then, I would choose the latter. So this means that this is basically only a summary of sorts and story speculation because I understood nothing.
Park Bo-yeong as Yoo-ran
Park So-dam as Yeon-deok
Our two main girls are Joo-ran – plyed by actress Park Bo-yeong and Yeon-deok – portrayed by Park So-dam. Well I call them main but what I mean is that they are the main ship. Just so you know I do this for all the movies I talk about. So keep in mind that there will be main characters that will be discarded during my talks because they are irrelevant. To me ships are all that matter and thus they get top billing as far as I am concerned.
Park Bo-yeong I am familiar with, having seen her play an Onnie in ‘Don’t Click’. Park So-dam no so familiar. Her face is kind of recognizable but for the life of me I can’t remember where I have seen her before. Then again, her face is one that is very popular in God’s creations. She looks kind of like A-reum and Adachi Rika. I love girls with features like her so you can imagine how happy I was to see that she was our main’s chosen one.
Now then, let’s jump ahead and see what was so intriguing about this one that it couldn’t wait until the English subtitles came out…
