  • Tazza : The High Rollers CHOI Dong-hoon`s 2nd film
  • by Yi Ch'ang-ho (KOFIC) /  Sep 21, 2006
  • Director CHOI Dong-hoon's new film in time for the Chuseok holiday in Korea - War of Flowersstars JO Seung-woo as a young man drawn in the world of the Korean card game hwatu (flower cards). He 'borrows' his sister's moneyto be able to participate in the games, only to lose it all. He then sets out to become a hwatu master and to win back the money, encountering ruthless criminals involved in gambling through hwatu and a seductive - and equally ruthless - woman on his way. BAEK Yoon-sik plays a hwatu master teaching him the tricks and KIM Hye-soo is the powerful and seductive woman in the world of hwatu and gambling. War of Flowers is based on HEO Young-man's popular manwha (Korean manga/comic book) of the same title as the Korean title of the film, Tajja. HEO's work is a popular source for film and television drama content. Beat was adapted into a feature film in 1997 and HEO's Freeloader is in development to be turned into a film and a television drama. CHOI Dong-hoon debuted with the acclaimed heist film The Big Swindle(2004) and the cast included BAEK Yoon-sik. JO Seung-woo recent films included the popular Marathon (2005) and IM Kwon-taek's Low Life (2004). Yi Ch'ang-ho (KOFIC)
