Arriving in Australian cinemas this week is South Korean gangster film Gangnam Blues (Korean title: 강남 1970).
Set amidst the social upheaval of South Korea in the 1970s, the film is an action noir focusing on corruption and organised crime’s involvement in the early development of Seoul’s Gangnam district. (From what I can see on the Web this sounds reminiscent of recent HK flick Overhead 3, actually).
It’s directed by Yoo Ha (A Dirty Carnival, A Frozen Flower, Howling) and stars Lee Min-ho and Kim Rae-won.
Here’s the trailer:
Gangnam Blues opens on February 26 in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and the Gold Coast. You can find more information at distributor CineAsia’s Facebook page.
