CJ Entertainment Korean Cinema Event

 

CJ Anniversary

The stars of Korean drama and film were out last night, gracing the red carpet event of CJ Entertainment’s 60th Anniversary commemoration of its parent company CJ Group. CJ Entertainment is South Korea’s largest entertainment studio, producing the new wave of highly acclaimed Korean films.

The event was held in the lofty halls of the Museum of Modern Art, where a screening of two films: Safe (director Moon Byoung-Gon) and End of Animal (director Jo Sung Hee) were shown. The event sought to showcase two of its most promising directors and their films to global industry leaders.

Some well known Korean actors in attendance were Lee Byung Hyun, (seen in such thrillers as I Saw The Devil; The Good, The Bad, The Weird; A Bittersweet Life), handsome, baby-faced Goo Soo (Piano; Green Rose; Some White Night; Haunters), Ha Jung-Woo (The Chaser; The Unforgiven; Time; Never Forever; Take Off) and Lee Jin Wook (Nine: Nine Time Travels). Two beautiful Korean actresses were also in attendance: the slight and winsome Gong Hyo-Jin (Crush and Blush; Pasta; The Greatest Love) who had actor Goo Soo by her side, and the stunning Hwang So-Hee who looked elegant in her cream lace dress. Last by certainly not least was Korean pop sensation PSY (Gangnam Style) looking respectfully sedate and dapper in his black suit.

INSPIRATION: Sexy Chic, and refined.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK: Renato began by applying the Fekkai COIFF Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel to wet hair before blowing it out so it was pin straight. He then applied the Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless Smooth Finish Serum to strands for polish and shine. Finally, Renato parted the hair on the side to create a more graphic and interesting style.

Fekkai Coiff™ Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel ($24), Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless Smooth Finish Serum ($24). Available at Fekkai.com, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.

Dir. Alexandre Volkoff. 1928, 126 mins. With Marcella Albani, D. Dmitriev, Brigitte Helm. Germany/France. This exquisite fantasy of an escape into the “Orient” features over-the-top ornamental sets by Ivan Lochakoff and sensuous costumes by Boris Bilinsky, a magnificent blend of Eastern and Western motifs. With its paradisical atmosphere and a sumptuously stencil-colored sequence, the film is a fairy-tale world of fancy filled with adventure, magic, mystery, and harem dancers.
Male and Female

Male and Female Saturday, April 16, 5:00 p.m.
Introduced by Inga Fraser and Live music by Stephen Horne
35mm print from George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film

Below information provided by the Museum of The Moving Image.
Dir. Cecil B. DeMille. 1919, 97 mins. With Gloria Swanson, Thomas Meighan. In this film’s notorious dream sequence, Gloria Swanson dramatically enters a lions’ den decked out in a lavish all-white robe and a headdress made of pearls, beads, and peacock feathers. The showstopping outfit, designed by Mitchell Leisen, was so heavy that Swanson required two crew members to help her move. Inga Fraser is associate curator of Fashion in Film at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London.
Free with Museum admission.
