It’s been a smashing summer for the Korean box office, with three domestic movies doing gangbusters business. That would be Northern Limit Line, Assassination, and most recently Veteran. With summer wrapped up, around the corner are the fall releases and one of the first to arrive is sageuk The Throne (Sado) with Yoo Ah In, Song Kang Ho, and Moon Geun Young. The big sageuk this summer with Memories of the Sword tanked at the box office despite the big names attached in Jeon Do Yeon, Lee Byung Hun, and Kim Go Eun.
It’ll be interesting to see if The Throne breathes renewed audience interest in the glossy sageuks. The cast sat down for a cute interview with Movie Talk and it’s quite a who’s who of great Korean acting talent to see them all sitting in a row. The cutest bit for me was Moon Geun Young’s interview, it’s short since she’s just a supporting character but the segment is adorable for how Yoo Ah In stares at her with admiration and playfully interacts with her. Maybe next time they can do a happy drama together with a story that doesn’t involve him ending in a box.
