Film Business Asia's Cyrano Agency Review: A Belated But Delightful Find

It took more than a year and a half to discover this very nice, commendable review on Park Shin Hye's portrayal of Min-yeong, a review by Film Business Asia that also took its time in getting published, about 6 months after the movie, Cyrano Agency, premiered in Seoul(September 2010) but Film Business Asia isn't your everyday newspaper film critic. 

"Film Business Asia is a film-trade magazine created by Patrick Frater, former journalist for Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and Screen International and Stephen Cremin, co-founder of the London Pan-Asian Film Festival.The magazine specifically focuses on the film development and news of the Asia-Pacific region, as well as reviews. Its chief-film-critic is Derek Elley, former resident critic at Variety. In 2011, the magazine launched the Asian Film Database, boasting information on over 45,000 films in the Asia-Pacific region" this from Wikipedia. 

It's straight on review made the critic's commentary on the movie and Shin Hye's work more significant. The movie wasn’t rated 8/10 nor considered as "the smoothest and best written rom-com from South Korea since Scandal Makers" for nothing. It's direction, screenplay, characterization, editing, its solid writing all created a strong, cohesive piece no wonder the movie was a success. 

For those who have no time to read the full review here's the part on Shin Hye's acting…  

"But one of the best performances comes from TV actress Park Shin-hye as Byeong-hun's female colleague: a scene in which she pretends to be Byeong-hun's lover lets her (till then slow-burning) performance catch fire, and the film's neat coda ends things on a satisfying note, building on small character details in her earlier scenes."

Late, yes, but it is a much deserved acknowledgment for a praise-worthy performance. Keep up the good job Park Shin Hye!
