About This DVD

Chilsu & Mansu in 1988, Two Cops in 1993, Nowhere To Hide in 1999 - the first is a masterpiece of Chungmuro's social realist movement in the 80s, the second is the buddy flick which revitalized Korean commercial cinema after the drought of the early 90s, and the last is Lee Myung Se's adrenaline-filled comeback after three years, a visual tour de force centered around the cat and dog game between cops and criminals. These three very different films share something in common: Ahn Sung Ki and Park Joong Hoon. Although there's a clear age difference (Ahn is in his fifties, and started acting at the tender age of six in Kim Ki Young's classic The Housemaid, while Park is a little younger, although he's been acting since the mid 80s), the two always shared a special on-screen chemistry. Now, seven years after Nowhere to Hide, these two great actors come together again for their fourth collaboration, Lee Joon Ik's Radio Star.

Radio Star is a curious choice for director Lee Joon Ik. After surprising just about everyone with the fusion historical drama Once Upon a Time in the Battlefield in 2003, he rewrote the records two years later with the surprise hit King and The Clown, the second-highest grossing Korean film of all time. With the entire industry waiting in anticipation for his next move, Lee follows up the period blockbuster with a markedly different entry, a little film reuniting two old friends, banking on good acting, a universal story, and metric tons of warmth.

Choi Gon (Park Joong Hoon) was a huge star in the 80s, with many hits under his name and a growing fanbase. But the music scene changed dramatically in the next 15 years, and now he finds himself a has-been without ever realizing his superstar days are over. Manager and long-time friend Park Min Soo (Ahn Sung Ki) understands this better than anyone, but he still tries to support his friend. When Gon moves to a radio station in a small town, it seems like his days in the limelight are finally over. But in that small station representing the last bus stop in his career, Gon soon starts feeling that vibe, that adrenaline he felt on the stage when he was a star.
