I’ve mentioned this before , Hula Girls was shot in Iwaki prefecture, so when the tsunami and eventual nuclear meltdown affected the zone, the Hula Girls team as well as the dancers lent their support and/or donated money. Now, Yu-chan is lending her time (maybe there’s money too, though I’d like to think this is from the bottom of her heart) to jump-start visits to Iwaki with the campaign Tadaima Iwaki (ただいま! いわき).
It doesn’t matter, I’d watch 1hr. of Yu eating savory things and visiting places if they’d made a movie about it. LOL As naturally charming as ever~ I’ll watch this 30-sec clip instead.
Last night, I got the chance to watch a Nora Noh documentary, simply titled Nora Noh. She is Korea’s first fashion designer to ever put on a fashion show in the country. There were some highlight comments, like when Seo Eun-young points out all these Korean celebrities are trying to ride the Korean Wave, when the wave has already been ridden by Nora. Way back when there was no wave.
There was also the comment on Korean pedigree when paying foreign creative directors, makeup artists, photographers, models, etc. more just for being foreign, when they all have talented people in Korea.
I need to gather my thoughts~
And though the docu has an official poster, I played around with some photos… because I got my computer back.
I preferred the single sketch poster (3), I think.
I knew I enjoyed All About Love and A Simple Life, so I had some of Ann Hui’s filmography on my to-watch list that I’ve been going through for my Best of the Decade post. It turned out I LOVED The Way We Are, Boat People blew me away, and The Goddess of Mercy made me squee for Zhao Wei some more.
With the release of this prettyful poster for Ann Hui’s dream project The Golden Era (黄金时代), which supposedly has taken her 40 years to fulfill , the movie has just shot right up to my most expected movies.
‘Tis a thing of beauty.
