[HanCinema”s Drama Review] “Let”s Eat – Season 2″ Episode 7

The slow pace of the plot catches up to the characters here. I can"t help but find it rather inherently amusing that Dae-yeong and Soo-ji are acting like they have all the time in the world to get her together with Sang-woo, when from the very beginning every single work meeting Soo-ji and Sang-woo have had has referenced the blind date that Sang-woo keeps trying to avoid. Well, that"s the problem with romantic fantasies really. They"re a lot more fun than actually trying to date.

For what it"s worth Soo-ji is a pretty good sport upon finally discovering the bare surface of the secret personality that Sang-woo normally only ever shows to Dae-yeong. Getting him to act like that in front of her is a pretty big victory for Soo-ji, even though as usual the woman insists on trying to be as inoffensive and pleasant as possible, no matter how weird it looks in the context of Sang-woo"s favorite word.

“The Avengers: Age of Ultron” a box office marvel

Marvel"s latest superhero flick, "The Avengers: Age of Ultron", is taking local cinemas by storm, breaking several records in its opening week. The film had a reservation rate of 95 percent at one point before its release Thursday and opened with an eye-popping 2.8 million tickets sold for the weekend, generating 24 billion won ($22.2 million). That was 90.5 percent of the total weekend box office.The movie is now the biggest-opening foreign film, supplanting "Transformers: Dark of the Moon", which opened with 2.3 million in 2011.Also, the "Avengers" sequel is the fastest foreign film to reach the 3 million mark in ticket sales, within four days. Anticipation for "Age of Ultron" was immense in Korea, because it not only marks the return of Marvel"s popular superheroes, including Iron Man Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), but also because part of the film was shot in Seoul last year.The casting of Korean actress Soo Hyeon, who goes by Claudia Kim in the United States, added to the expectations.After the film was unveiled to a Korean audience, including members of the media, there was debate about whether Seoul"s role was significant, but there was no doubt about the scale of its action-packed splashy scenes. The film also introduced a new evil force called the Ultron, a program that uses its artificial intelligence to wipe out humankind. In Korea, where there will be no viable alternatives to compete with mega-budget blockbusters anytime soon, the film is expected to continue its successful streak. Meanwhile, second place was taken by the dethroned "Furious 7" with 106,981 admissions, which brought its four-week box office total to 3.1 million. The local drama "Salut D"Amour", which depicts the tearful love story of an elderly couple, landed in third place at three-week total box office sales of 86,160.BY JIN EUN-SOO [jin.eunsoo@joongang.co.kr]
