TGB Episode 140: From South Korea With Love (Guest: James Marsh)

January 18, 2013

TGB - Kim Jee-woon

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by guest James Marsh of TwitchFilm, living in Hong Kong, to go over their picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for Colin Farrell's Dead Man Down, The Last Exorcism II and Jeff Nichols' Mud and much more. The topic of the night was a discussion on filmmakers from South Korea in honor of Kim Jee-woon's The Last Stand hitting theaters this weekend! The guys talk about some of their favorites from that side of the globe and talk about where they hope to see some of their favorite South Korean directors working next.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records.

Hip-Hip-Hooray It's Golden Briefcase Day! Thanks fellas! // Bong JoonHo is my favorite SK film maker. Being Korean myself, ;), I have always found watching Korean films to be especially fun. I remember watching OLD BOY as a young man and freaking the FUCK out! Haha. That was messed up...Park ChanWook is also fantastic. I can't wait for STOKER. I also cannot believe how all these dudes are getting American gigs now. As I live and breathe... // Anemia means lifeless or gutless. Denotation would be blood that lacks oxygen retention. // Thanks again guys. I just finished the 'pod, and especially enjoyed it. James Marsh really is a terrific guest. He adds loads of pertinent information and doesn't interrupt you two. // As for Korean food, besides Kalbi and Bulgogi (K-BBQ), I would recommend you check out Samkyupssal "sahm-kee-yup-sahl" (pork belly), Bibimbap "bee-beem-bahp" (rice served in a hot stone pot), Soondubu "soon-doo-boo" (spicy tofu soup), Ddeokbokki "duhk-boh-kee" (rice dumplings in spicy, sweet sauce), and Yangnyeom "yahng-nyuhm" Chicken (like Buffalo wings, but much better; these with beer are my all-time snack). Tim, GO TO K-TOWN to find all of these at any of the restaurants there. Jeremy, I do not know Austin well enough, but I am sure there are Korean restaurants there.

Fantastic! James Marsh is one of my favorite online film critics and I love South Korean cinema, so talk about a match made in heaven 🙂 Great episode indeed: You mentioned all the Korean films and filmmakers I love, I learned about new ones. Couldn't ask for more!

This podcast has convinced me to try watching a few South Korean films. I have virtually no experience with the genre outside of the laughable films of Shim Hyung-rae....director of films like 'Reptilian' and 'Dragon Wars' AKA 'D-War'
