Top 10 Korean Movies for the year 2012

 

Originally published in  The Korea Guide

This year too Google has published the zietgeist for 2012 highlighting the top 10 most searched Korean Movies in South Korea. Concubine tops the list as expected. A sultry erotic drama well-crafted in a Joseon Dynasty palace in which a royal consort is thrown into a merciless game of thrones, but it’s more than a sexed-up Korean Movie, as it skillfully interweaves compelling lust-hate relationships, character twists and familiar court intrigue.

Exhibition on Photography by the Visually Impaired – Samsung Insight

Very few campaigns manage to touch your heart and soul forever. Samsung Insight is once such campaign. Keep your box of tissues handy while viewing this one here. Don’t tell me that I dint want you on this one.

The Challenge
Samsung Electronics was number one in the compact digital camera market. People already knew that they made great cameras. The company wanted people to see that it was a thoughtful brand with a deep philosophy, too. What was the best way for Samsung to show its humanity and connect with people?

The Idea
We all experience life in our own way. However, photography lets us see the world through different eyes. Samsung gave cameras to 11 visually-impaired students and taught them basic photography skills. The results were amazing. They showed that cameras are for everyone – not just those who can see. The photos they’d taken were so good that Samsung opened an exhibition of the best ones.


S-Oil’s HERE Balloon campaign on Save Oil

South Korea’s capital – Seoul – had some of the highest gasoline consumption in the world. What’s more, car use was increasing, petrol costs rising, and parking spaces scarce. S-Oil wanted to show it had a mission: to save oil.

The Problem
South Korea, is a country which is devoid of oil. In Seoul, where 1/4th of Koreans live, has one of the worlds highest gasoline consumption. Car usage is increasing as there is a car for every 2.5 people in this city. Parking spaces are scarce. On top of that petroleums cost are rising. People are stressed out. The situation is getting worse day by day.

Everyday a Seoul driver wanders 500 meters to find a parking space. Which means
500m x 30 days = 15km a month or approximately 1 liter of gas
