This is the kind of genre that Ha Ji Won is meant to do: she’s undoubtedly one of South Korea’s best female action stars. I’ve always enjoyed her in comedies more (there’s something about her that shines through in comedic type roles). In the first teaser trailer for The Huntresses, she plays the leader to a trio of bounty hunters, set in the Joeson Era. Kang Ye Won (El Condor Pasa) plays the housewife who’d rather use her kitchen knives for fighting off bad guys and Son Ga In (of Kpop girl group Brown Eyed Girls) plays the youngest member, the best fighter of the the three. The movie comes out in May, but hope this teaser trailer will hold you until then!
We’re giving away tickets to Justin Chon’s upcoming movie screening for 21 and Over on February 27th in Los Angeles!

ABOUT 21 and Over
Is she gorgeous – or is she GORGEOUS?! G.I.: Retaliation star Elodie Yung graces our Spring 2013 cover, looking fresh and feminine – something that’s much different from her role as Jinx. She told us she has very little modeling experience – but she’s quite modest, I think she did perfectly fine.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Elodie in our cover story – and I can tell you it was one of those once in a lifetime experiences. As a Cambodian American woman working in the entertainment industry, I’m happy to see another Cambodian woman rising up as an actress. She’s one of the most down to earth women I’ve ever met – and I’ll never forget the stories we shared growing up as Cambodians in our respective hometowns (hers Paris, mines Long Beach). And yes, I made my Creative Director Diana King cry with the story — success!
Please check out our Spring 2013 issue when it hits newsstands – we’ll let you know when it’ll be ready for sale!
What do you get when you have three best friends from high school celebrating a 21st birthday, a charging buffalo and a vindictive latina sorority? Just another day for the cast of characters in 21 and Over starring Justin Chon (Twilight), Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) and Miles Teller (Project X). Written and directed by the same duo Jon Lucas and Scott Moore who were the masterminds behind The Hangover films, this film is the sophmore version of The Hangover with a splash of Weekend at Bernie’s.
Meet Jeff Chang, who is paid a surprise visit by his best friends from high school Casey and Miller, the day before a critical medical school interview. After a little bit of peer pressure, Jeff Chang succumbs and decides “one drink” won’t kill him but when one drink turns into a hundred drinks and bar hopping, the adventure begins. With a passed out Jeff Chang, Casey and Miller embark on a journey to find the one most wanted question – where does he live? After infiltrating a latina sorority, dodging a buffalo on the loose at a pep rally and rescuing Jeff Chang from the cops, these events create an even more special bond between the three of them with a touching moment spliced in between all the other misadventures and mayhem.
This film hits theaters on March 1st.
Named one of the best known ethnic pageants in the world, the Miss Los Angeles Chinatown pageant judges its contestants on their beauty, character, ability to answer questions concerning society, and their portrayal of Chinese women living in America. Yours Truly, Miss Chinatown dives deeply into the personal lives of two young women competing in the Miss Los Angeles Chinatown pageant as well as a Miss Chinatown “imposter”. While the pageant insists that it celebrates old Chinese traditions and embraces the modern Chinese woman, this is not necessarily the case in the lives of Celeste, Priscilla, and Kristina.
Although the film documents the pageant experience, it takes a more intimate turn into the much more difficult obstacles of self-acceptance, family traditions, and a lost identity. The film follows Celeste as she battles with the troubles of being both Chinese and Caucasian while never being fully accepted by either culture. Priscilla struggles through her father’s very strict and traditional Chinese views while living in a very modern world. Kristina, believing that she will never be cut out to be the picture-perfect Miss Chinatown, lives a life of performance (even portraying the character of an over-the-top, awkward Miss Chinatown) in an effort to hide her self esteem issues.
What begins as a mere pageant documentary turns into a very intimate look into the lives of Chinese women dealing with the pressures of their society. The film takes us behind the scenes of not only the pageant, but also of a girl competing simply to feel more Chinese, a family refusing to accept a daughters marriage because of the husbands race, and the pressure thrust upon Chinese women to be beautiful. The film gives audiences a more honest look into the modern Chinese woman- more honest than any pageant alone could have achieved.
“Yours Truly, Miss Chinatown” by Daisy Lin premiered at the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival and won the Fox Studio Diversity Award at the Downtown Film Fest LA. You can watch the entire documentary here.
