While I've been busy with movies I'm producing and movies I'm going to direct, Korea has been consumed with an ultimate trash movie called D-WAR (or DRAGON WARS as will be known in the States). It's making big bucks and it's becoming the talk of the town but ultimately it's a B movie with some impressive visual effects and some bad acting and a really bad script.

Don't know how this became the must-see movie. Good marketing? Korean pride?

What's upsetting is, the hard-core supporters of the movie is trashing the rest of the Korean film industry which produced some wonderful movies such as OLDBOY and MEMORIES OF A MURDER. Very sad. After all, it's just a movie.

Jack,

Thanks for such flattering words. I'm glad my film made a difference for you. For that reason, I guess we continue making movies.

Thanks again.
