My Dad and I went to see The Host here in Calgary tonight. Apparently, it is the highest-grossing film in South korean history by an absolute landslide. It was pretty cool - very suspenseful and fun. Beyond the movie though (and if you want to read my review of it, you can at www.thatmoviesite.com) it was neat to sit in a theatre with my Dad and watch a movie filmed in the city I will be living in within the next 5 months. Of course, we didn't get to see too much of the city beyond certain darker areas as the action mainly took place along the Han River and in the sewer systems.
Thanks, Dad, for the popcorn, and don't worry - when I'm in Seoul, I won't throw any pop cans at any weird giant tadpole-looking monsters if they swan-dive off a bridge and start swimming towards me.
