Night In Paradise is a serie of five movies, all of which have been dubbed over the years. All of them are much subtler than their American counterparts and have at least three English versions. If you have only seen the American version, you may well be wondering why these extras are offered. Well, there is no real reason for them other than to boost sales - it's pretty simple. Many Americans will not watch the film for any other reason - they simply hate the bloody gun battle scene in the beginning, and American audiences tend not to enjoy watching foreign films with silly special effects or a bunch of uninteresting people being killed off in a big dramatic scene.
Night In Paradise is a Korean movie that was released in Korea more than a decade ago. It was a huge success upon its release and was one of the first Korean movies to be shown on American television. Now it can be enjoyed by fans of all ages online in high-definition format. The movie itself is a classic and is probably the reason that the online streaming giant Netflix started offering it in quality 8-bit video at a very low price.
Night In Paradise is about a Korean businessman who runs a well-known nightclub called Paradise. He gets a visit from his old friend Kim, who wants him to run the club. He agrees and all of the criminals in the club begin to die one by one. The movie starts with the murder of a Chinese girl who works at Paradise as a masseuse and the subsequent chaos that ensues as the remaining club goers try to take out the killers.
The movie has made its way to Hollywood and is being streamed online by the online streaming giant Hulu. If you haven't seen the movie yet, you owe it to yourself to check it out. The Hulu website offers full episodes for sale at no charge and if you are wondering how the whole thing got started there is an explanation at the website. Night in Paradise would be like a South Korean drama film with the plot revolving around a rich young man who owns a nightclub.
I have heard some people compare the story of Night In Paradise with a remake of The Pains of Love but that comparison would only make the modern day Korean movie stand out even more. The story line is about a man (Tae-hao), who was captured and becomes the object of desire of a woman (Choi Soon-soo). The movie then goes on to tell the story of how Tae-hao plans to escape from prison while the woman tries to get money to support her son. Once Tae-hao is free he starts having a sexual affair with Park Hye-jung, who happens to be the lead character's wife.
The movie has received praises not just from critics and audiences but from Korean media as well. One media station even named Night in Paradise as one of the best movies of all time. One reason why Night in Paradise is becoming such a success is that its story is very unique and it has captured the hearts of Korean men and women everywhere. It is very possible that this movie might even end up making its way into the American Film Industry. Although the movie is set in south Korea, it is being shown in the United States, in a subtitled format, which is a testament to how popular it truly is.
