From the award-winning animation director Yeon Sang-ho, "The Fake" examines the Korean take on Christianity.
In a country with 8.6 million Protestants and 5.1 million Catholics, along with some of the biggest congregations in the world, Christianity is always a big topic in Korea.
The Korean brand of Christianity, modified with a dose of local shamanism, has raised eyebrows time and time again, with media coverage of cults, tax evasion and the type of scandals that often accompany any large organization.
This year, a few local movies such as "Are You Ready?" and next week's "Black Gospel" have questioned Korean churches and matters of faith, in particular, the Korean approach to it.
But perhaps the boldest of them all is Yeon Sang-ho's latest animated movie, "The Fake"
SISTAR is causing quite a stir amongst some of those who have viewed their performance at the 2011 KBS Gayo Daejun. That's because Hyorin seemed to have a bit of a wardrobe malfunction at the very beginning of their performance of “So Cool,” where some of her bottom is exposed for one or two seconds.
This has upset quite a few YouTube users who saw the performance on the video sharing website. Here are some of the negative responses:
Well, i really think their dresses are too short... The dresses they wear habitually are good, so why did they shrink them? I don't care but Hyorin must feel really embarassed :S and i think Korean people will create a scandal of this accident :(
Showing your ass isn't being sexy! You're sexy when you have, at least, a little bit of class! For me wearing a dress of this size is being "slutty" (when you don't wear anything under)
OMG I SAW THEIR BUTT ~ Omg Hyo Rin wear your shorts

But look deeper as the film's synopsis promises a storyline around the classic Heinz dilemma.Poor man with a sick parent dying of a terminal illness, how far would he go?Well, the film at least went as far as North America, as American audiences are going to be treated to an almost simultaneous showing of the film as South Korea.
Yoo Ah In is also quite known for his comic prowess, and he will get to showcase that in the lighter side of the film, when his character will not yet be all stressed out with the dilemma in front of him
