South Korea, 2000, 110 minutes
Showtime: 7:00 PM
Korean Cultural Service's Korean Movie Night Series Three: TV Party will continue this coming Tuesday, August 24th, 2010 with a double-feature provided by KBS-America. Originally My Little Erotic Lover, episode four of the romantic comedy series, was to be the solo feature. But recently The Scary One, The Ghost and I, the second episode of a comedic horror series, was added to the program. In fact, if I correctly read the recent email I received, The Scary One actually will be be screened first. Each feature is approximately 60 minutes long.
Where: Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick Street, on the corner of Canal Street, one block from the A, C, E and 1 train Canal Street stops
My Little Erotic Lover is a TV movie that is one of powerhouse broadcaster KBS’ new “Drama Specials,” 60 minute made-for-TV movies that showcase their hottest talent. MY LITTLE EROTIC LOVER (aka OUR SLIGHTLY RISQUE RELATIONSHIP) is a typical meet-cute between a broadcaster and a reporter who can’t stand the sight of each other. Elevating this formula is the bawdy nature of the comedy (they meet cute when she spills hot soup on his crotch, sparking a medical emergency) and the fact that it stars Lee Seon-Gyun. Lee was relegated to second string and bit parts for years before he starred in the 2007 TV series, THE 1st SHOP OF THE COFFEE PRINCE, playing the owner of a run down coffee house. The show was a massive hit and he followed it up with the medical TV series, WHITE TOWER. Not only is he now the biggest male lead in Korean television, but last year he won an acting award for his role in the acclaimed feature film PAJU.
While I don't have any images from The Scary One, The Ghost and I, I do have the following description to share:
This comedic horror film reveals the story of Doo Sub Kang, a legendary mafia leader. Ironically, his smile just adds to his unattractiveness and scares everyone off. This time, it fails and he relies on a detective agency to get rid of the female ghost who keeps following him.
Actor Won Jong Lee plays the invincible gangster, who is too embarrassed to tell people about his fear. Will this remain as his little secret?
Come to the free screening Tuesday night and find out!
