[The Hankyoreh, July 28 2007] [Editorial] “May 18” brings unforgettable history back to life

Korean film has not been doing so well this year. It has actually been something of an embarrassment. Part of the industry’s poor performance can be attributed to repeated offensives by big Hollywood films, but it has also been for a lack of movies that give either artistic or entertainment satisfaction. May 18, which opened just a few days ago, has straightened out the wrinkled pride of Korean film a little. It is the first Korean film to sell the most advance tickets in 13 weeks, that honor having previously been taken by foreign films.
