[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Battleship Island"

The black and white opener of "The Battleship Island" focuses on a part of wartime economy rarely seen in film- the support staff. Specifically, the miners, who come up with the raw material that is later purposed into shiny toys for the military. The work is dangerous, especially under the stress of wartime quotas. But it's especially bad for the Korean characters of "The Battleship Island", who labor for the Japanese near the end of the doomed effort that was World War II in the Pacific.

Don't mistake "The Battleship Island" for mere torture porn about how the Japanese Empire was bad. I mean, it was bad, don't get me wrong. Director Ryoo Seung-hwan reminds us that while the men worked in horrible conditions, the women had it even worse- they became comfort women. Rather paradoxically, they were comfort women for the male Korean miners in addition to the Japanese soldiers, because everyone's actions for the war effort were considered, legally at least, to be equal.

Some EXO-Ls have balloon event to allegedly support only 5 members during 'EXO'r'DIUM'

EXO-Ls are furious over a balloon event.

Some EXO-Ls from the DC Inside EXO Gallery got together for a EX5 balloon event. While they disguised themselves as a 5-year anniversary project, the project is allegedly funded by fans who support only 5 out of the members, excluding members who had scandals (Baekhyun, Kai, Chen), as well as Lay, who has been promoting by himself for the most part. The balloons featured words such as 'We are 5ne' and 'EX5 has come to Jamshil'.

[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "Duel"

Clones are the latest trend in Dramaland and like any trend in this industry, this horse will be beaten long past its expiration. For now, the still fresh topic gets its first drama with "Duel". Whether the clones in what looks like any other crime and suspense drama will be more than a gimmick remains to be seen.

Jang Deuk-cheon (Jeong Jae-yeong) is a detective with an ill daughter. One day he becomes entagled with two clones, one innocent and one evil, and his little girl is kidnapped. The detective begins a chase against great odds to solve the mystery of his situation and find his child before it is too late.

Korean Government Issues Ban On Travel To Philippines Island

Some travel agencies looking to bring in Korean tourists to the Philippines are coming under controversy for hiding the fact that the island of Mindanao is under martial law.

It was recently discovered that some Korean-Filipino travel agencies are attempting to hide the fact that part of the country is currently under martial law. This prompted the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs to enact a special order, effectively banning all travel to the affected island.

Some travel agencies argued that what is happening in the southern island should not have an effect on the tourism sector as the major tourist destinations of Manila, Cebu, and Boracay are not located within the no-travel zone.
