Probably the most high profile Korean film on the horizon, particularly for foreign fans, is the new film by Park Chan-wook. The auteur has signed on to a lot of Hollywood projects but it appears his return will be with a local film. The premise is intriguing, if not as catchy as Park's previous films, and the cast is good, though again, he's had had more enticing ensembles in the past. Still, Park's involving films are always worth the wait. However, given that the start date isn't fixed, I'm not sure we'll see this before the end of the year.
