For a long time "made in Hollywood" was the only guarantee you had that you were about to see a good film Cheap Taylor Moton Jersey , but recent years have seen more and more movies from Asia and Europe rise to challenge the authority of Hollywood blockbusters. Developing its own particular style of movies, South Korea has made itself a representative figure in Asia's film industry. As cooperation between the Chinese and South Korean film industries continues to deepen, how to learn from the experiences of their neighbor has become a top concern for many Chinese filmmakers.

Korean experience

During an academic workshop held by Beijing Normal University this April, Kang Nae-young, a film professor at South Korea's Kyungsung University, provided some interesting data about the South Korean film industry: In 2013, among the top 10 highest grossing box office movies Cheap Curtis Samuel Jersey , only one (Iron Man 3) was not a Korean film; and among the top 20, 15 of them were domestic movies filmed in South Korea. Also, in that same year, domestic movies accounted for 60 percent of the South Korean film market share, while Hollywood movies only accounted for 35 percent of the remaining 40 percent.

Like many countries, the domestic movie market in South Korea was once dominated by Hollywood blockbusters, a situation that lasted for 10 years starting from 1988 Cheap Star Lotulelei Jersey , when South Korea removed its restrictions on importing Hollywood movies.

Kang pointed out that in 2008, South Korean movies also experienced a downturn when it came to market share. "There was the world economic crisis and many poor quality movies came out," Kang said, adding that the industry began to recover from 2010.

"Movies made in the US don't necessarily reflect the inner voices of Korean people. It was for this reason that South Korean movies were able to find their own way," said South Korean movie director Jang Cheol-soo, giving his opinion on how domestic movies manage to beat Hollywood blockbusters in South Korea.

Yang Woo-suk, another South Korean director Cheap Thomas Davis Sr Jersey , shares the same point of view. "Hollywood movies target a global audience and therefore can't take a single place into consideration. However, South Korean movies can focus more on local details," he told the Global Times.

Interest in social problems

Though comedies and romantic films, such as My Sassy Girl (2001), The Classic (2003) and More Than Blue (2009), are what the South Korean film industry is best known for, more serious works examining politics and social problems are also an indispensable part of the industry.

2011's The Crucible and 2013's The Attorney are two such works that received a high amount of attention at home and abroad.

Based on an actual event Cheap Greg Olsen Jersey , The Crucible takes a look at the sexual assaults that occurred at a school for the hearing-impaired. Meanwhile, although The Attorney director Yang Woo-suk denies that the film is a political film, the movie, which recounts the story of a tax lawyer that comes to defend a group of student activists, caused audiences to reflect on problems like human rights, liberty and the political centralization of society.

Personally interested in these types of movies, Jang explained that because many social problems are closely related to people Cheap Kawann Short Jersey , movies about social problems often call attention to members of the audience themselves. With this in mind, some big enterprises in South Korea are not willing to invest in films that expose the dark side of society, and in the end filmmakers have to turn to ordinary citizens to provide financial support.

Serious as these themes are, many such works also mix in comedic elements.

Secretly, Greatly (2013), about a North Korean spy who infiltrates a South Korean village, is one example. Compared with early works on the same subject Cheap Trai Turner Jersey , like Silmido (2003), Secretly, Greatly is more relaxing and funny as it makes the lead character a disguised idiot.

"The infiltration of comedic elements into spy movies and crime movies is not a dessert-like embellishment. It becomes its own entity in the story," Zhou Anhua, a professor at Nanjing University's Department of Drama, Film and Television, said during the seminar.

Zhou also mentioned that compared to straight tragedies Cheap Ryan Kalil Jersey , ideas conveyed through comedic means are more easily accepted by audiences. Additionally, due to the long time oppression the South Korean people experienced in recent history, for a period of time an atmosphere of hatred existed in much of South Korean media, which can be seen in many of filmmaker Kim Ki-duk's works. However, with the increasing number of comedies being made, this anger is getting balanced out, and in Zhou's opinion Cheap Kelvin Benjamin Jersey , the reason why South Korean films are becoming more peaceful.


Along with the closer economic relationship between China and South Korea, an increased number of China-South Korea co-produced films are being produced.

Taking on one of these co-productions - Honeymoon Hotels, which is set for 2015 - director Jang Cheol-soo said he is very positive about the future of the Chinese movie market and that he first considered a co-production three years ago when participating in the first Korean Filmmakers Showcase in Beijing.

He added that although Hollywood is still strongly appealing, now that the Chinese market has become so vibrant, he'd rather work somewhere closer to home, especially since the similarities in cultural make it much easier to communicate.

While filmmakers in China are eager to learn how to produce critical and box office hits from their neighbors, China's huge movie market is the main area where South Korean filmmakers interests lie.

"The market in South Korea is limited Cheap Luke Kuechly Jersey , but
