The biggest blockbuster film in Korea at the moment is neither a spectacular action nor a romantic comedy – normally the genre much preferred by the holiday crowd. Instead, it’s a serious human drama titled, ‘The Counselor.’ It tells the story of a lawyer who transforms from a money-grabbing tax lawyer into a civil rights advocate throughout the film. At first glance, it doesn’t sound like a kind of a movie that people would go and watch on Christmas or during the holiday season. But this film has a very significant aspect to Korean people. This film is based on the true story of Roh, Moo-hyun, the 9th president of the Republic of Korea (2003-2008).
