My Love My Bride is a remake of the hit 1990 romantic comedy of the same name, which won over audiences more than two decades ago with its refreshingly realistic portrayal of love and marriage. The roles made famous by PARK Joong-hoon and the late CHOI Jin-sil are now taken by JO Jung-suk (The Face Reader) and SHIN Min-a (The Naked Kitchen). They portray idealistic college sweethearts who take on challenges in a young marriage. This rom-com is a hit in South Korea with box office attendance surpassing 2 million.
Summer is the time for popcorn fueled blockbuster entertainment, so our Summer Edition presents an assortment of Korea’s recent box office champs, including rom-coms My Love My Bride (remake of LEE Myung-se’s 1990 classic film of the same name) and Marriage Blue, nostalgic music drama C’est Si Bon, stylish romantic thriller Scarlet Innocence from director YIM Pil-sung (Hansel and Gretel), comedy-drama Chronicle of a Blood Merchant, directed by and starring Korea’s top star HA jung-woo, and Detective K: Secret of the Lost Island, a sequel to the popular 2011 period-action-comedy Detective K: Secret of the Virtuous Widow, featuring new adventures of a bumbling detective in the 18th century Korea.
