Been a massive fan of IU (Lee Ji-eun) for many years now and I am looking forward to watching her very first main role in a feature length film.

I've already heard many high praises about her acting in this film, with film critics naming her as a strong contender for Best Actress at this year's Cannes.

Kore-eda pays no heed to the nationalistic hype whipped up by Abe and forges working relationships with Koreans rather than caving in to pride and ignorance.

Good luck on him. I encourage more Japanese directors to shoot films overseas with local actors and other professionals, spoken in local languages. I also welcome non-Japanese directors to come shoot (Japanese speaking) films featuring Japanese actors/actresses. Just like Eastwood's Letters from Iwo Jima.

Ironically, Koreans all pay heed to nationalistic hype.

Kore-eda is paying no heed to the rampant Anti-Japan revisionist and nationalist sentiment in South Korea whipped up by the Moon administration, which is the cause of Japan's own nationalist sentiment. A fact that the new Yoon administration recognizes.

Good for Kore-eda and all others in the arts to overcome these political barriers.

I'm seeing a lot of good talent being attracted to Korean entertainment nowadays and rightfully so. I can't wait to watch his film! What a lineup of talented stars!

The difference being that when Japan’s leaders engage in such claptrap, they’re in fact paying Korea the ultimate compliment. Imitation is, after all, the sincerest form of flattery.

Nice try but no cigar.

Making movies is an art form and should be borderless, way to go Kore-eda

The movie was shot during Moon administration era.

Korean hatred is directed at LDP and Japanese government, not Japanese people. Japanese people in Korea will tell you, they feel almost no hostility while staying.

Pretty much, yes.

And anyone who has been paying attention that Abe started his revisionist campaign from 2012, well before Moon set foot in office.

As I said before, a survey in South Korea found that almost half of all South Koreans would side with North Korea in a war against Japan, while 40% said "I don't know".

Not to mention the gas stations that refused to refuel Japanese cars when Japan removed South Korea from its whitelist two years ago, the children that drew crayon pictures of Japan being nuked, or the banner from that soccer game celebrating the 2011 earthquake.

As I said before

Well, that's exactly the problem: iirc you've already cited these examples numerous times. Maybe you could find some new ones?.. Otherwise this is getting a bit repetitive
