NEW KOREAN HORSE MOVIES
26 Aug 2010
Here is a stunning new movie release that I found while avoiding work by browsing the internet (I tell myself it's ok because it's work related ... hehehe).
GRAND PRIX is the sequel to the beautiful 2006 Korean movie LUMP OF SUGAR. I've watched some of the original movie online and it's absolutely magic. I just melted at the divine scenery and the most gorgeous little girl I've ever seen. I'm sure I'll be crying my eyes out for this one :-)
I've contacted the distributors in Korea to see if we will be able to get copies of the DVD's here in Australia, so fingers crossed we won't miss out. Good quality horse movies are so few and far between, I'm sure we fellow horse-movie addicts will fall for these gems hook, line and sinker.
I've put the synopsis for each movie here below, but please go to their website and have a look, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
LUMP OF SUGAR (2006) SYNOPSIS:
"The daughter of a poor rancher, Si-eun’s only hope is to one day, become a jockey. With her mother passing away at her birth, her favorite horse, Chun-doong, has become not only her friend, but also a soul mate. She is devastated when Chun-doong is sold to another owner, but when they are reunited two years later they have a chance to create a miracle by teaming up in a race."

GRAND PRIX (2010) SYNOPSIS:
"Grand Prix is a thrilling sports drama with comedic undertones that highlights the triumph of the indomitable sportsmanship of a female horse racer. The once-successful horse racer Ju-hee hasn’t been in the field after the devastating arm injury and the loss of her own horse. To overcome depression, Ju-hee visits a mountain in Jeju island where she accidentally meets another racer Woo-suk who has the record of championing at the Japan Cup. Through Woo-suk’s encouragement, Ju-hee trains herself again and returns to the Grand Prix championship."
