Is there any hope in this Hongkong city?
Yesterday, one director from Hongkong talked to many Koreans after watching his movie. He said : "Bruce Lee became a legend of silk screen through his short life. He only lived 32 years. After that Jacky Chan became a famous movie star. But Jacky became famous 40 years ago. Any young movie actor can compare him now. Just now in Hongkong, most of the movie actors and actress only can play as an extra in movies." I felt very complicated and sorry with his saying. From 1960s to 1990s, Hongkong was the center of film market in East Asia. But not now. After 1997, HK film industry is changed and many Korean movies and TV dramas stole priority in East Asia. Through his movie, he asked himself : " Is there any hope in Hongkong City?" I think this kind of question is really valuable to ask myself.
