To date, the summer of 2014 has seen the majority of mainstream Korean films fall into either of two categories: the noir thriller or the period blockbuster. While a handful of terrific genre pieces, namely “A Hard Day” and “Confession”, have succeeded in spite of this inertia, it’s been high time for something a little different. Along comes “Sea Fog”, a character-driven blockbuster set on a boat that is based on a play which is itself drawn from a real life incident.
A fishing trawler returns to port with a meager catch and when its captain is offered a pile of money to help some Chinese-Korean illegal immigrants sneak onto the peninsula he is quick to pocket the cash. He heads back out to sea along with his five-man crew and in the dead of night they make contact with another vessel carrying their payday. Soon the youngest crewmember forms an attachment with one of the smuggled girls, but as tensions between the crew and their passengers mount and when the Korean maritime police suddenly appear, things quickly spin out of control.
You can often count on Korean cinema to take a familiar setting and turn it on its head. “Sea Fog” brings other open sea blockbusters such as “Jaws” (1975) and “The Perfect Storm” (2000) to mind, but it is a great deal darker than what you would expect from commercial cinema, particularly a blockbuster of this size (at least by Korean standards). First time director Shim Sung-bo and his co-writer and executive producer Bong Joon Ho deliver a film that is as somber as the latter’s recent “Snowpiercer”. But with a far more realistic setting and less of Bong’s trademark wry humor, “Sea Fog” packs a thunderous emotional whallop.
Much like Bong was confronted with when shooting an ambitious film within the limitations of a train, Shim and cinematographer Hong Kyung-pyo (also the DP on “Snowpiercer”) are tasked with running the audience through a gauntlet of thrills and emotions within the confines of a small fishing boat. The brooding weather, which veers from stark daylight and ominous night to thick batches of creeping fog, ably amplifies the foreboding tone of the film. Equally impressive is the claustrophobic interior lensing. Every shot is permeated with a dank warmth that acts as a refuge from the literal and figurative tempests that take place on deck before turning the space into an oppressive tangle of burning pipes offering no exit from the encroaching terror. Throughout, the fluidity between shots, which evolve as actors move within or in and out of frame with clear precision, makes the film’s visual tone rich and expressive.
[SPOILER] After watching Triangle Episode 10, I think we all agree the Three Jang Brothers have something in common ^^;
What is like to be a Jaejoong’s Fan and Mother at the same time?
Your Kids will recognize your bias xD
It’s mathematic question.
Q: JaeJoong and Kang Hee use their pencil to measure the table’s length.
It is 5 times of JaeJoong’s pencil and 6 times of Kang Hee’s. Who has a longer pencil? Please explain the process .
Kid answer: Use pencil to measure table’a length…. JaeJoong’s pencil is longer. (My mum is JaeJoong’ fan)
To all Chunsas/JYJers…..
Yeeeaahhh…..I’m back…XD…Please dont be surprise, hehe…At 1st wanna say Sorry to JYJ3 admins coz I didnt tell them about my plan so I already get the farewell n Thank You. I made opening post for 3 Days so I think I must make closing post too. Before I say Good Bye to Han Tae Kyung n move on. XD….
So, this post will be my last post for 3 Days in JYJ3 n it’s about…
Aaahhhh why only had 16 eps? So fast n btw, sorry for the late….coz I didnt give myself a Deadline for the last eps recap n I like aaahhhh….I felt sad to say GoodBye to Tae Kyung. So, wrote this with Snail’s speed.
N this is it, the finale of 3 Days….I was satisfied with the ending even though NO Kiss Scene (XD) but it’s Okay. With the pace of TaeBo’s loveline it will be just weird if they had a Hot Kiss Scene. Think it will be just a Fans Service n I dont want that n at the end The Good one is the Winner.
From this eps, my fav was this one……
Aaahhh…..Tae Kyung’s smile… ……Finally a smile from him. Will miss U Tae Kyung.
To all Chunsa/JYJers….
My Hello represent “Girl Power” dedicated to 3 Ladies. Bo Won, Cha Young n ahjumma who help Pres. Lee….They’re all awesome.
My fav pic from this eps is this one….XD…
Just wanna compare Han Tae Kyung with Park Yoo Chun. LOL…. Can’t really see his collarbones but can see his broad shoulder. Cant see his dimple & wide smile in 3 Days but its fine. Love the difference he gave to Us as Han Tae Kyung.
We didn’t get a lot of TaeBo’s scene on this eps. Only from minute 19:47 till 25:10. A Very precious moment from our TaeBo. TaeBo’s scene is like “LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS”. XD….But their pics are most half from all pics on this eps recap. LOL…
I really love the pace of TaeBo’s relationship. Not forced at all and flow so natural. For a action thriller drama, it’s so AWESOME.
And my fav scene from this esp, definitely this one.
