Movie Review: My Girlfriend is an Agent (2009)

Yesterday we finally got to watch My Girlfriend is An Agent. It was great. In fact, I don't remember seeing a more hilarious movie for the longest time. It's probably also one of the more entertaining Asian films I have seen in years. Hong Kong movies have generally been crap and I don't know enough Japanese films to say. So this latest Korean offering gets (at least) a 7.5 out of 10 points from me.

Kim Ha Neul stars as a Ahn Su Ji, a top-notch agent working for the Korean secret service. She used to date Lee Jae Jun (played by the very funny Kang Ji Hwan), but because of the countless lies she told for her work's sake, their relationship could not take the strain. Eventually, Jae Jun broke up with her and left Korea without giving her a chance to explain herself. Broken-hearted, Su Ji tried to forget Jae Jun and subsequently began dating someone new. But as fate would have it (as is usually the case in movies), their paths crossed again 3 years later. The way they met again is really laugh-out-loud funny. A bit slapstick, but nonetheless hilarious. I won't reveal more; no spoilers in this review.

It turns out that Jae Jun is now a rookie agent, and is trying to make the cut for the elite Harimau team (did you know? Harimau is the Malay word for tiger and also the name of the company that produced the movie). IMO, Kang Ji Hwan is perfectly cast as the bumbling agent. Whenever he makes a blunder, his facial expression has just that right mix of serious goofiness, which is totally classic. And of course, making everything even harder, now he has to keep his identity a secret from Su Ji (right when their relationship seems to be picking up again). A series of misadventures soon follow. The nightclub and amusement park scenes with the two of them on field missions had me laughing till my sides ached.

This is a highly enjoyable movie. It's silly but in a good way. Besides the leading man and lady (who have wonderful onscreen chemistry, by the way) the supporting cast is also superb. And although it's supposed to be a sort of goofball comedy, the love story between Su Ji and Jae Jun is very emotionally charged, and has more to offer than your average Hollywood romance comedy. Mostly it came down to the star power and acting chops of Kim Ha Neul and Kang Ji Hwan, who manage to pull everything off convincingly. Even the more ridiculous moments (for me it's the fencing sequences) will just make us audience go, awww. We are ready to forgive these two anything, as long as they end up together.

In the end, we all know true love will prevail. So I don't think that counts as spoiler. :) Don't expect something too deep or too clever. But you can count on having a rollicking fun ride in this movie. This is entertainment at its best. Guaranteed to make you laugh. HelloHallyu recommends it!

Food Review: Kobayashi Hangul

What would cheer up a pair of wet, sodden and cold couple who's into Korean stuff? Well, a nice hot Korean meal would certainly hit the spot. Yesterday, as we trudged along the rain soaked Somerset Road to Cathay Cineleisure, our sole aim being collecting our tickets for the movie "My Girlfriend is An Agent", we decided that a nice hot meal would be a great way to start off the evening.

None of the food places caught our fancy since they are mostly the run of the mill foodcourt stalls, fastfood restaurants and the franchised Japanese restaurants. By this time, we were ready to tuck into anything that will satiate our growling tummies when we chanced upon a resturant by the name of Kobayashi Hangul.

Upon closer inspection of the restaurant's menu, we were happy to realise that it served both Korean and Japanese food. What better way to start off the evening than to have a Korean themed dinner before catching a Korean movie.

Scanning through the menu, I decided to try their barbequed chicken hotplate with kimchi set while Yupgi ordered a seafood kimchi jigae set.

Yupgi's seafood kimchi jigae in the background and my barbequed chicken kimchi hotplate is in the foreground.

Presentation wise is 'ok'. Taste wise is really disappointing.

The food looked not too bad when I collected it from the counter, the restaurant being a self-styled 'fastfood' Korean/Japanese  restuarant. However, we were both sorely disappointed when we started eating.

Having eaten Korean dishes from various places, foodcourt stalls to expensive restaurants, the food at Kobayshi Hangul is really poor. My grilled chicken tasted just liked a plate of chicken that have been stirred fried with kimchi. It doesn't taste anything like the Korean food that I have eaten at other places. If Korean food is simple adding kimchi to the recipe, than this  restaurant would have passed with flying colours. Needless to say, I didn't enjoy the substandard quality of the this dish.

Yupgi shared my disappointment with her jigae. Her 'stew'was simply a mis-mash of kimchi (again), seafood, and fish fillet (those you find in Macdonald's fill-o-fish). Simply put, it doesn't taste like anything that a respectable Korean would serve on their dining table.

On a scale of 10, the food we had is simple a poor rating of 4. The only saving grace for this place, if we can even consider it as such, is its rather reasonable pricing, ranging from S$5+ to around S$8 per item. However, given the poor food quality, this would be the first and the last time I ever eat at this restaurant.

Can't help myself from grabbing these photos of Shin Min Ah posing as a bride in this photoshoot. Looking so radiant, one wonders who she's thinking of when posing for the camera. Whoever he is, he's one lucky guy!

IRIS airs tonight

The highly anticipated KBS drama IRIS will air tonight on KBS World (Starhub channel 173) at 9pm, local time Singapore, after the KBS news programme. Having heard about the hype it generated on the web, I am really looking forward to watching a hit drama after the rather disappointing My Fair Lady. Which reminds me that I need to catch the last 2 episodes in my recorder. Limited time, but unlimited K-dramas...

Movie Update - Ninja Assassin

Rain with his new physique. Just hope the movie is as good as his body.

If what is stated in the movie critique by the Korea Herald is true, it looks like Rain's latest big-screen offering "Ninja Assassin" will rely heavily on his star power to pull in the eyeballs when the movie is released worldwide.

Being a fan of the Wachowski brothers' Matrix trilogy movie, I was already disappointed by their last movie outing "Speed Racer". When I heard Rain was roped for the lead in the Ninja Assassin, I was hoping that the Wachowski brothers will 'salvage' their reputation and come up with a hit.

To be fair, I have yet to view the movie. But if Ninja Assassin is just about slick action sequences, high body count and a thin plot, I would definitely give it a miss and wait for it to be released on the cable. Guess I will have to wait for more reviews before deciding to part with my money for this movie.

Read on for the full review by the Korea Herald.

'Ninja Assassin' misses the target

Humorless, preposterous, and soaked in blood, "Ninja Assassin" turns out to be thinly-plotted schlock from a team of pedigree filmmakers who should have known better. "The day Rain did his first scene in 'Speed Racer,' the Wachowski brothers called me and said 'This guy is unbelievable. He's a natural, our dream come true.' We began to plan 'Ninja Assassin' immediately afterward," producer Joel Silver said in an earlier interview.

Unfortunately for "world star" Rain, what was to be his breakout film falls way short of what "Enter the Dragon" was for Bruce Lee. No doubt that was what the Wachowski Brothers were aiming to do by gambling on a relative unknown in the Western world.

Rain plays Raizo, one of the world's deadliest assassins trained by the Ozunu Clan - an underground band of killers that has remained hidden for generations by posing as a mythical organization.

Robbed of his childhood, Raizo is transformed into a merciless Katana-wielding killing machine. Breaking free from their mountain lair, he plans to exact revenge on the clan for killing his first love.

In his quest for revenge, he gets help from a Europol agent Mika Coretti - played by Naomi Harris - who stumbles upon a money trail connecting a slew of high profile political assassinations around the world committed by the Ozunu.

As she begins to uncover the truth behind the murders, she too, becomes their target and is saved by Raizo when assassins emerge to kill her in Berlin.

By now, plots like these have become the silver screen version of painting-by-numbers in the same manner as Tom Clancy inspired techno-thriller novels.

But the plot does have all of the makings of a straightforward pulp action thriller, as its opening set-piece suggests. In it Raizo ambushes a gang of Yakuza members, with heads and limbs severed and buckets of blood everywhere.

The level of over-the-top ultra-violence established through this opener is unfortunately juxtaposed with a serious tone devoid of much irony.

The film is not a nod to pulpy B-grade kung-fu genre of the 70s, nor is it a polished action flick geared towards a mainstream audience. Instead it's stuck in the middle ground, in an area unlikely to appeal to fans of either genre.

When production on the film was announced, anticipation was high, as it was written and produced by the makers of The Matrix trilogy, with directing duties falling on James McTiegue, the veteran director who scored both a critical hit and modest box office success with 2005's V for Vendetta.

But it seems somewhere down the line the creative vision of the producers and the director clashed without either camp realizing.

Perhaps they realized during post-production they had a potential turkey on their hands - the film's marketing has focused on Rain and the physical transformation he underwent during six months of grueling training with the stunt and fight team that trained the actors in "300."

And the result is there on the screen. The 28-year-old actor is shown sans shirt as if he's allergic to fabric except for a leather jacket.

He's ripped. His female fans will love him - as long as they don't get too squeamish from seeing all the blood.

He does a decent job with the few lines he has throughout the 98-minute running time.

The verdict is still out on whether this will be his breakthrough role and it will be interesting to see if his star power alone will be able to generate enough revenue in Asia to warrant future high-profile roles.

Yoon Eun Hye on My Fair Lady

Although we have yet to finish Yoon Eun Hye's latest drama - My Fair Lady, it is obvious that the actress herself is somewhat disappointed with the ratings of her latest work.

During a birthday party held for her fans, Yoon commented that she's flattered to know that some have come to see her as a guarantee to high ratings for any drama she's in. To be honest, it is not that far-fetched an idea when you consider the huge following she garnered in the hit drama series, The Princess Hours ("Goong") or Coffee Prince.

I hope this setback in the highly competitive ratings war between the Korean TV networks does not get to her as she is definitely a great actress. Frankly, she was let down by the scriptwriters in My Fair Lady.

That said, she's still showing her trademark "fighting" spirit by saying that she will strive to do even better with every stumble as long as her fans are there showing her their support.

Both Mydaemon and I are great fans of Yoon Eun Hye and we would like to let her know that we are looking forward to her next work and that we will never stop watching her productions even if the ratings are not ideal.

So keep the chin up girl! AJA!!!

Korean stars seem to be the flavour of the month for some of the local magazines. Yoon Eun Hye and Song Seung Heon have both appeared on the front cover of Nuyou and August respectively. Check out the photos I took of the magazines below.

My Girlfriend is an Agent @ Level 7 Bureaucrat

En garde! Kim and Kang sparring in a scene from the movie.

A gala premiere of the My Girlfriend is an Agent, also know as Level 7 Bureaucrat, was held at the Cathay cinema last night. Both the leads, Kim Ha Neul (of On Air fame) and Kang Ji Hwan were both in Singapore for this event.

There's going to be another publicity event for the movie at the Heeren this evening at 6.30pm. Pity that I am most likely still stuck in the office. for fans of Korean dramas and movies, Heeren is the place to be this evening. Get your cameras ready as both Kim and Kang will be at the event.

We at HelloHallyu can't wait to catch it on the big-screens when the movie starts its run from 5 Nov!

Without a doubt soju one of the cultural icons of Korea. It helps when almost all dramas include a scene, or many, showing Koreans toasting each other with a shot of this iconic drink poured from the by now classic green bottle from Jinro, if the brand can be seen in the first place.

While I am not much of a wine/liquor connoisseur, I know that soju holds a special place in the Korean society. Thus, I was pleasantly surprised when I happened to catch a short clip on Singapore's Channelnewsasia showing the other Korean drink - makkoli.

Makkoli - Korean Rice Wine

Distinctly different from the soju, makkoli is a cloudy white rice wine which was commonly consumed by Korean farmers after a hard day's labour. This drink is apparently good for the health and is gaining popularity amongst Koreans and further afield in Japan.

Although I have this large unopened bottle of Jinro's soju in my larder, courtesy of my recent trip to Korea, I am more than game to head down to the supermarket to get myself, a 'packet' of makkoli off the shelves. Yep, it comes in packets!

Will post about my experience with makkoli once I try it, provided that I stay sober enough to put up a post. :)

Track from Flowers for My Life - Wasted on the Way

The unheralded Flowers for My Life constinues to be one of the best Korean dramas I have seen so far. It's soundtrack, although not commercially available, is also great. Was tuning in to the evergreen channel, Gold 90.5FM when they played Graham Nash's Wasted on the Way. This song was widely played in Flowers for My Life.

I just had to share the lyrics of the song with you as it struck a chord deep within me. Sometimes we can only understand the meaning behind certain songs after having travelled some distance in life's journey. You caa also listen to the song via the embedded Imeem widget on the sidebar. Enjoy!

Look around me, I can see my life before me
Running rings around the way it used to be
I am older now, I have more than what I wanted
But I wish that I had started long before I did

And there's so much time to make up
Everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way
So much water moving
Underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away

Oh when you were young, did you question all the answers
Did you envy all the dancers who had all the nerve
Look around you now, you must go for what you wanted
Look at all my friends who did and got what they deserved

And there's so much love to make up
Everywhere you turn
Love we have wasted on the way
So much water moving
Underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
Let the water come and carry us away

First take on My Fair Lady

Due to our work and personal commitments, My Fair Lady has been the only Korean drama for us at HelloHallyu since it debuted on KBS’ World some weeks back. With all the hype surrounding Yoon Eun Hye’s return to the small-screen following her 2 year ‘sabbatical’ after Coffee Prince, and the expected quality performance from YEH, we were expecting a hit drama.

However, the first few episodes of My Fair Lady failed to live up to its initial hype. Granted that the sets and costumes showed that money and effort have been poured into the production, what the drama sorely lacked was originality and script.

The storyline of a poor bloke, butler Seo Dong Chan, winning the heart of a cold-hearted heiress, YEH's Kang Hye Na, is a story well told in various other dramas and movies. One would expect the scriptwriters to smash the stereotypical characters and add some twist to the story. We have not seen a hint of this after watching the first 5 to 6 episodes. True to form, the storyline followed the classic, albeit predictable, route of the pauper-princess story.

To be honest, it was kind of a drag having to go through the thin plot served to us. YEH’s well known acting capabilities were not only not put to the test. In fact, the script seems so unchallenging that YEH’s only expressions alternated between a perpetual constipated scowl and a doe-eyed teenage girl. It’s really sad since we know what she’s really capable of.

The somewhat outlandish costumes that YEH had to don, with or without her approval, can be both hilarious and appalling at the same time. Check out the chocolate inspired 'jacket' and you know what I mean.

My Fair Lady

YEH looking sweet in her chocloate whatever and feisty in her tigress suit

Doubt this new cycling attired will take off

While it is still too early to give a fair rating to this drama, our initial reactions ain’t that fantastic. That said, we sense some sort of a pick up in the plot as we near the middle portion of the drama. The only positive takeaway here is that the ‘yawn’ factor, which used to be quite high, is getting stifled.

Being fans of YEH since her Princess Hours days, we hope that My Fair Lady will turn the proverbial corner and surprise us with a great second half to the drama. So stay tuned for the final HelloHallyu review.

Website Update

If you hadn't noticed, HelloHallyu has heard your comments about our ‘old’ website. Although we loved the look and feel of the template used previously, loading times for the website was terrible. Yup, even we felt that it took too long to load!

Taking heed of the feedback, Yupgi has gamely taken on the task of revamping the website. What you see now is the fruit of her labor. Don't you think the new template is great? Most importantly, we wanted to retain the ‘feel’ of our site, where readers instinctively know they have arrived at the site they have been visiting.

There are still some kinks to be ironed out. But we believe the new template will ensure a more pleasant experience for our readers. :)

Stop abusing our Korean female artistes!

The unsavoury, and downright repulsive, facet of the Korean entertainment scene has once again made headlines. On 5 Oct, The Straits Times, Singapore's leading newspaper, reported on the abuse that Korean female artistes continue to be subjected to in the entertainment industry.

Jang Ja Yeon

Jang Ja yeon - A victim of the industry.

The recent demise of Jang Ja Yeon seemed to have little to no effect on such abhorent practices. I really hope that it doesn't take more innocent lives of young potential stars before Korean, as a society, decides that enough is enough. Till then, we can only hope that unscrupulous agents and managers will be given their just punishments and be kept out of the industry for good.

The drama On Air is perhaps the best work out there that shows how dark the entertainment industry in Korea can be. Check out HelloHallyu's synopsis on the drama here.

You can read the full Straits Times article below.

S.Korean actresses face abuse

FOUR in 10 female entertainers in South Korea face unwanted sexual pressure, Yonhap news agency reported on Monday.

A parlimantary survey revealed that 25 per cent of them experienced unwanted physical contact, while 12.5 per cent said they had been forced or asked to perform sexual favours in return for money or a role in a TV show or film.

Earlier this year actress Jang Ja Yeon hanged herself, leaving behind a letter that claimed she was forced to perform sexual favours for powerful figures, including a TV producer and executives at Korea's top entertainment firm.

Police chose not to press charges, citing lack of evidence, but the case drew an uproar as it was not the first time such suspicions had been raised concerning the local entertainment industry.

In more extreme cases, the reputations of several female celebrities were tarnished after videos of them having sex appeared on the Internet, downloaded by millions.

Agents and managers often pressure actresses to have sex with them while being videotaped, later using it as blackmail to prevent the starlets from skipping to bigger firms offering more money after they become famous.

A Surprise from the Korean Tourism Organization

Yesterday was like any typical Sunday for me. It was a languid day when I usually take my time, at a languid pace, to start my biological engines, i.e. waking up after a good Saturday's night slumber. While still trying to rouse myself awake, I heard someone knocking on my door. Peering through the peephole, I see this guy standing outside my home. "Must be the newspaper agent collecting the fees again", I thought to myself.

Opening the door, I was surprised to see that it was a DHL delivery man. The fact that it is not 'business as usual' woke me up somewhat. After signing for the delivery, which is packed in a rather large nonedescript box, I quickly told my wife that I received a delivery from DHL. This is sometime of a big deal for us since we don't normally received stuff via courier services.

Yeah, we lead normal boring lives heh.

KTO Prize

Anyway, what piqued my curiosity is that fact that the delivery originated from KOREA! Yep, you are reading it right. At this point in time, my brain is really working overtime. My wife and I were wondering if our credit cards had been skimmed during our recent holiday there. We were both debating on whether to open up the box or check our credit card details online, when we noticed the sender is one "KTO, Seoul, Korea".

That's when everything clicked.

I have WON a prize in Korea Tourism Organisation's Blog Korea! Visit Korea! Blog Competition. To be honest, I can't even remember what the prizes were, but I remembered taking part in it since I wrote a post or two on my recent trip there. The nice folks at KTO must have overlooked my numerous typos and decided to award, yours sincerely, a prize.


KTO Website

Check out their website for the official award notice. HelloHallyu is listed at #61. Yup, we won a snazzy MP3 player.

Here's the very beautiful and generous prize from KTO. And yes, it's from Disney. :)

KTO Prize

I have decided to store all my Korean drama OSTs and music in this very special gift from Korea. This just makes me feel like flying off for another holiday there. Perhaps I will net myself a netbook the next time. :D

Jajangmyun with an Italian twist

Most readers would know by now that we at HelloHallyu, love our Korean food as much as the dramas. Over the years, we have experimented, with some measure of success, in whipping up Korean dishes at home. I guess growing up in families which prepares Chinese food helps a lot since Korean cuisine, being an Asian cuisine, shares certain commonalities in preparation methods and ingredients.

Putting on our aprons again after our adventure in preparing kimchi chigae some months back, we felt a tinge of excitement of the challenge in preparing the almost 'venerable' jajangmyun which is more or less customarily consumed, or should I say "slurped" up, by stars in most Korean dramas.

Shine Korea Supermarket

Our 'journey' on preparing this dish started with the discovery of another Korean supermarket off the beaten track along Bencoolen street. The Shine Korea Supermarket (located at 175, Bencoolen Street, #01-10/11, Burlington Square) is well stocked with all manner of spices, condiments, and foodstuff that would make any Korean happy. It is so well stocked that I wondered why we even bothered lugging loads of Korean goodies back to Singapore from our recent trip there. Our only consolation is that the big bottle of Jinro soju that we bought for US$7 would probably cost 3 times that amount back in Singapore. :)

In the supermarket, we bought ourselves a pack of seaweed snacks, which is absolutely yummy, we also bought a box of Maxim cafe mocha sachets and a box of the black bean sauce/paste, which is the key ingredient for preparing the jajangmyun.

As our fridge are mostly well stocked with fresh greens, we are all ready to cook up a storm! Read on for the ingredients as well as the preparation method. The italian twist comes in the form of using angel hair as the noodles. And trust me, it still tastes great! :)

On-screen lovers Hyun Bin and Song Hye Gyo get serious

Hyun Bin & Song Hye Gyo

I am pleasantly surprised to find out that Hyun Bin and Song Hye Gyo has become the latest celebrity couple in Korea. Being the first male and female drama artistes that arouse my interest in Korean drama, through their performances in My Lovely Samoon and Autumn in My Heart, I am happy that my idols found love through the filming of KBS' The World They Live In.

Since part of the filming was carried out in Singapore, perhaps their seeds of love were sown here. This sure feels like something taken out from the very dramas we love. Way to go guys!

Shin Min Ah clowns around in new photoshoot

Shin Min Ah sheds her sexy image (see her Jinro posters) in her latest photoshoot. Instead of figure hugging outfits, Shin showcases childlike innoncence in oversized attire, glasses and large tie. Hope she's having fun clowning around in this shoot. Personally, I prefer her in the Jinro posters...

But looking at their happy expressions, we are sure they totally enjoyed their time flinging mud at each other. Pity that Lee Ji Ah is not included in this scene.

Park Han Byul's Photoshoot

It is a pleasant surprise to see Park Han Byul once again. For us, at HelloHallyu, we have sadly not heard anything about after seeing her on Fantasy Couple, a series which we enjoyed a lot, since it also introduced us to the hunk, which we know as Oh Ji Ho.

Anyway, Oh's not the topic of this post since Park Han Byul's pretty face is captured in a photoshoot in the old military naval base - Clark, in the Philippines. Apparently the photographers were charmed by the innoncent yet sophisticated maturity. Hey, who would be lost staring into that beautiful face.

Mobile subscribers of SK and LG telecos and KTF users would be able to get these photos from 30 August. Sigh, the lucky blokes in Korea.

Jang Geun Suk in new SBS Drama - You're Beautiful

Jang Geun Suk

Jang Geun Suk has been cast as the lead for the upcoming SBS drama series You're Beautiful. This is Jang's first drama after Beethoven's Virus in 2008. You're Beautiful is helmed by the hugely scriptwriting team - Hong sisters, who incidentally also worked on Hong Gil Dong, which Jang also starred in.

You're Beautiful will focus on the teenage idol group phenomenon. Jang plays a simple boy from the countryside who finds fame through an idol boyband. The series will premiere on SBS (Wed-Thurs) after Swallow the Sun ends its run.

My Fair Lady [Update]

After two years away from the small-screen, Yoon Eun Hye will be back in the limelight as a cocky arrogant heiress Kang Hye Na in My Fair Lady. Viewers will be treated to a fashion extravagance as Yoon Eun Hye will don trendy and fashionable garments befitting her status in the drama. In the drama, Yoon's character is highly skilled in horse riding, fencing and clay shooting. She basically uses her talents in these areas to put down 'lesser' men who are unworthy of her.

This is definitely a departure of the innocent and cute roles they she has taken on in The First Shop of Coffee Prince, Princess Hours and The Man in the Vineyard. I have no doubt that she will excel in this new role and show the boys in Boys Over Flowers who's the real superstar on the small screen.
