Number 5 – Assassination (암살)
Director Choi Dong-hoon is one of the most bankable helmers in the industry and renowned for assembling stellar A-list casts for his blockbuster projects. Luckily Assassination, a tale of espionage set during the Japanese colonial period, proved no exception as some of Korea’s most acclaimed talents combined to create one of the biggest tentpole films of the year, complete with lavish production values that would make most filmmakers green with envy. Visually Assassination is a real treat, helping audiences to overlook the rather contrived story, while its arrival in cinemas in July came as a welcome huge sigh of relief for many, as the film heralded the beginning of a turn-around for what had been up to that point an awful year for Korean film.
