I read about John Lapus’ experience at the Pusan International Film Festival. He came for the hit movie “Here Comes The Bride” together with Eugene Domingo. Too bad that Angelica Panganiban didn’t come.
“Here Comes the Bride” is one of the few movies that really made me roll with laughter. I had seen it twice and the first time was in the subway. It was a big mistake since I had a hard time stifling my laughter. The second time was with friends at Wendy’s house. We too had a great time watching it. I promise to buy the original DVD to add to my small collection.
So how was the reception for the movie in Korea? Positively positive. One blogger wrote that “ì •ë§ ì›ƒê¸´ ì˜í™”ë‹¤” (It’s a really funny movie) and “ë„ˆë¬´ ìœ ì¾Œí•˜ê³ ì‹ ë‚¬ë–¤ ì˜í™” ã…Žã…Ž” (It’s a very pleasant and exciting movie). There are even tweets asking if the movie is going to be shown in regular cinemas in Korea.
Another blogger said “ì˜¬í•´ì˜ ê°€ìž¥ ê°œì„± ìžˆëŠ” ì›¨ë”© ì½”ë¯¸ë””” (This year’s most unique wedding comedy.) The Korean title of the movie is “ë‚´ ì‹ ë¶€ ì°¾ì•„ì¤˜ìš”” or “Please Find My Bride”.
Here are some pictures of John Lapus and Eugene Domingo, along with Director Chris Martinez at one of the screenings of the movie. I noticed that they are not wearing name badges.
