Your heart is looking forward to a new exciting relationship and you think of getting married a man or woman who belong to any part of world ... You believe in love and romance, but you havenât met the man or woman of your dream yet ...The one bright point was Lee Chang-dong's fourth feature Secret Sunshine, which earned a Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for the fearless performance of its lead Jeon Do-yeon.Although long considered one of Korea's top actors by the local press, this was the first opportunity for Jeon to really shine in an international spotlight.The film itself too was widely praised, and for most Korean critics it represents sort of an obvious choice for the year's best feature.Two blockbusters punctuated the middle part of the year.
Stretching southward from Manchuria and Siberia for close to 600 miles (966 kilometers), it extends down to the Korea Strait.
Even bigger was Shim Hyung-rae's English-language monster movie D-War, shot in Los Angeles with American actors and a mostly American crew.
Although to international viewers it may look like any other really bad Hollywood B-movie, for many Korean viewers it became a source of national pride, since former comedian Shim Hyung-rae was the writer/director, the digital effects were all done in Korea, and the song "Arirang" is played at the end of the film.
May 18, based on the infamous Gwangju Uprising of 1980, took the same sort of blockbuster approach to history ushered in by Tae Guk Gi and Silmido in 2004.
The film ended up with a massive 7.3 million tickets sold.
