I finally found time to watch Korean movie Northern Limit Line last night. Yay! I admit that I wanted to watch the movie because of Jin Goo (heavily influenced by DotS), and also because I’m such a sucker for war-related movies.. plus Kim Moo Yul looks hot in those white navy uniform.
Based on true events happened in June 2002, the movie is about the lives of courageous sailors on board South Korean patrol boat Chamsuri 357. Led by Lt. Commander Yoon Young Ha (Kim Moo Yul), Chamsuri 357 was doing its normal routine patrolling the maritime border when it was suddenly under attack.
It was heartbreaking enough for me to watch the movie until the end as it was depicted from real story and it happened during the World Cup tournament which South Korea and Japan were co-hosting at that time.
My heart goes out to the families of the brave sailors who lost their lives on that fateful day. May their souls rest in peace. 필승!!
I think it had been a while since I watched any movie. I ended up with this one last week. Although the story setting supposed to be dark or gloomy, I found the story to be rather cute. Yeah, how could “waiting” for your death day to come would be more interesting to some eh. Anyway, thanks for the sweet ending.
- During their earlier debut on performing, when the band “stop” and Hyun Joon said (with his deep husky voice), “Hey, the flames are dancing” *melting……*
- While Active Volcano performing the Happy Life song (Hyun Joon’s dad last piece before he died), the “uncles’ singing were superb. It gave me the kind of feeling just like when I listened to oldies… timeless (^^!)
I believe he deserves the nomination for being passionate about his work. I’ve seen him in quite numbers of roles. He is a pretty boy alright but we can see that he have more that just the look. His voice compliment his bad boy attitude which work perfectly in what drama-fans would call “drama-land”. On the other hand, it works wonders as well if he’s just playing the sweetheart. Owh, just can’t get enough of him! *giggle*
장근석, you have all my love and support for this!
At the same time, I am still trying to understand how this nomination thingy goes because I was actually quite surprised to see Kang Ji Hwan nominated in the Best New Actor category! Not because he’s nominated of course but by the fact that he was nominated in that category. I don’t think he’s that close as being called a “new actor”. Don’t you think? But again… I really do not have any idea how this nomination thingy goes.

The story of the movie basically based on a true incident that happened in 1997 (in Itaewon of course). This movie definitely will show the other side of this candy-boy, and as regular stoppers knew.. I really look forward for the movie. It said to be released on September so we might need to wait for another month after September for it to available locally.
Can’t wait to watch JGS with a cool-headed character along with the deep voice of his *melt*. Hope that this movie will be success. JGS… hwaiting!!! *giggle*
Hmm… again my Prince Shin in the kitchen but instead of opening a bakery, now he’s a french-korean chef. My-my… looking him working in the kitchen look so yummy.
How good it is? Let just say that I prefer watching “Kim Jae Wook’s gay-demonic-charm-love” in Antique Bakery. huhuhu… Yup, the only thing that made me stick till the end was JJH (while fast-forwarding a few scenes that didn’t really spark any interest to me*yawn*). Personally, I think the movie was quite dull. I wonder if it just me? Since I’m quite tired while watching in at the start. However, the production props I think made some real effort as I did actually fell in love with the settings, the house… etc.
* by the way, I just realised that JJH was kinda skinny in the movie. Might be related to the scandal.. *sigh*
Even JJH won’t make me watch it for the second time. ~meow~~~ (^^!)
