NEW

1.  Sound of a Flower

Starring Ryu Seung Ryong and Bae Su Ji (Suzy)

She wanted to be a singer in a time when women weren’t allowed to sing. Pretending to be a man was the only logical solution. Jin Chae Sun (Bae Su Ji “Suzy” from Uncontrollably Fond) is an orphan raised by professional entertainers in the Joseon Dynasty. She loves pansori, the musical storytelling art popular in the royal courts. Jin Chae Sun desperately wants to be a singer. However, women are not allowed to sing or perform on stage. Undeterred, Jin Chae Sun eavesdrops on lessons and practices in secret. She asks famed pansori teacher Shin Jae Hyo (Ryu Seung Ryong from The Admiral and The Recipe) to train her, but he refuses to mentor a woman, even though he realizes she can really sing. Still unwilling to give up, Jin Chae Sun pretends to be a man, and is rejected again. When the king’s father holds a competition for the best musical storyteller, Shin Jae Hyo knows that the only one who can win it is Jin Chae Sun. He agrees to teach her. If it is discovered she is a woman, they will both be killed. As they navigate the perils of lying to the royal family, both Jin Chae Sun and Shin Jae Hyo grow closer to each other and realize that art, like love, knows no gender. Based on the real life story of the first professional female pansori singer, Sound of a Flower is written and directed by Lee Jong Pil. For her role, Suzy went through Pansori training for over a year. The Korean title for the film, “Dorihgawa,” is based on the actual song written by the real-life Shin Jae Hyo for his love and pupil, Jin Chae Sun. Sound of a Flower was released on November 25, 2015.

3. Glove

Starring Jung Jae Young and Yoo Sun

A disgraced baseball star needs to rebuild his image. Training deaf students might get the job done, if he can keep his own hubris in check. Sang Nam (Jung Jae Young from Duel and Moss) is a baseball star. Currently, though, he is known less for his performance on the field and more for his part in an ongoing assault case. To rebuild his image, Sang Nam’s agent sends him to a countryside school to coach a team of hearing-impaired students. When he arrives, the boys love the big baseball star but Sang Nam doesn’t care. All he sees is a team that doesn’t have enough players and has never won a game. He also doesn’t see how he can teach a team of players that can’t even hear him. Simply put, Sang Nam is just counting his days until he can get back to the playing field. This puts him at odds with Na Joo Won (Yoo Sun), the boys’ ultra-protective music teacher and baseball manager. She hates Sang Nam’s belittling attitude towards the boys, and doesn’t want them to get hurt. Slowly, Sang Nam starts to care for the children and makes it his life’s mission to help them reach the nationals.
