Mother Playing at Lotte Cinema Seomyeon with English Subtitles


The Lotte Cinema in Seomyeon is screening Bong Joon Ho’s “Mother” with English subtitles. Bong is one of Korea’s most celebrated and (at age 39) youngest visionaries. He quickly established himself as a leading light in Korean cinema when he made “Memories of Murder” (2003) a unique take on South Korea’s first serial killer case and the police procedural genre. He later went on to break local box-office records with his hugely successful monster movie, “The Host” (2006). His latest film, about a desperate adjumma determined to prove her son’s innocence after he is accused of murder, premiered just weeks ago at the Cannes film festival where it was generally well-received. Lotte Cinema is offering a rare opportunity for foreigners living in Busan to see a current Korean movie by an internationally well-regarded director in theatres.

Send In the Anti-MacArthur

Tobias Harris makes selecting an ambassador for Japan sound like an act of political subversion. Roos actually may be uniquely capable of managing what could be the other important task of his ambassadorship, welcoming a DPJ-led government into power. As someone removed from the circle of US-Japan alliance insiders, Roos presumably will arrive in Tokyo free [...]

A Holiday on Fear-Mongering and China Love

I've played along, and I've joked, but I don't plan to to burn in an atomic fireball anytime soon. But, I might implode in my own frustration while reading requests from North Americans for a handle on that "North Korea" situation. The last time I got worked up was, when an NCO convinced me the [...]
