worldstar because it won the grand prize at the 2004 Cannes film festival. [1]

Let’s introduce other countries’ directors.
You know the famous movie ‘Avatar’.
It was made by ‘James Cameron’.
He made the classic movie ‘Titanic’.

‘Peter Jackson’ likes monsters and fantasy, so he remade ‘King kong’ and directed ‘The lord of the rings trilogy’.

About “Non-summit”

Filed under: student presentations — richardlstansfield @ 4:14 am

Class.146, Group 4

12142903 박다운
12132165 김은희
12132216 이희준
12132212 이혜지

Our presentation is about Non-summit. This is a recently-popular Korean entertainment program on JTBC. They discuss about various subjects every monday.[1] For example, when discussing about working moms, There are two contrasting opinions. One of them : mom may work and nurture simultaneously. Another is that mom has to be devoted to nurturing. When discussing about cellphone-holics, that is a bad habit or as time goes on it is a natural change.


This program consist of 3 Korean MCs, 11 foreign panelists and 1 Korean guest. 3 MCs are announcer Jeon Hyeon Mu, comedian Yu Se Yun, and singer Sung Si Gyueng. 11 panelists are as follows : He is Takuya, a member of boy group Cross Gene. He is from Japan. He is an academic chinese teacher, Zhang Yu’an. He is from China. He is Guillaume, a progamer in his 20’s. He is from Canada. He is Sam , a broadcaster. He is from Ghana. He is Enes, a movie actor. He is from Turkey. He is Julian, a broadcaster. He is from Belgium. He is Robin, a broadcaster. He is from France. He is Alberto, a bussiness man. He is from Italy. He is Daniel, a bussiness man. He is from Germany. He is Daniel, a model and from Australia. He is Tyler, a graduate student and he’s from U.S. [2]
This program has many benefits for panelists and viewers. Many panels made comercials such as, 8seconds, Subway and so on.[3] Through this, they earn much money. And they are increasing awareness by being reported on magazines.[4] Specially, Enes and Julian were broadcast on another entertainment program. In addition, viwers can know about another country’s culture, and a variety of opinions from other foreigners. Also This program can promote Korea to foreigners. For example, we can see this program translated into other languages on You tube.


However, it also has a few problems. First, There is an imbalance of opinion for two reason. Above all, panelists have imbalance of appearance time. Enes and Julila n appear long periods of time, while Guillaume and Daniel from Australia has less appearance time. Also, now there are more panelists that are from western countries than eastern countries. So viewer listen to more progressive opinions than conservative opinions. After all, we can not help listerning to biased opinion. Besides, recently this program is making a big issue, when Japanese guest appeared a song called Kimigayo was played two times which means that it was not simple mistake.


because this song symbolizes the militarism of Japan, which is similar to the Nazism of Germany[5], after liberty day of Korea, this song has never been played. some people don’t think seriously about this problem, with this problem, we know that we are not interested in history, so people have to be aware of this problem’s seriousness

● Glossary

-Nurture : you care for a young child or a young plant while it is growing and developing.
-Biased : favoring one person or side over another.
-Progressive : favoring or promoting progress
-conservative : resistant to change

Hi everyone. Our presentation topic is about Disney Company

Picture 1

Almost all people know what Disney is. But they don’t know well about history of Disney. In early 1923, Walt Disney and Roy Disney who are brothers established animation studio. In the same year, the animation studio created a short film named “Alice’s Wonderland” that is the first film of Disney Company.
At first time, the studio name was not “The Walt Disney Company” but “Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio”. In 1986, the studio name was changed to “Walt Disney Productions”. [1]
Disney Company has produced 53 movies from 1923 to 2014. Disney Company doesn’t make movies only. They started from animations, now they have a lot of field such as radios, music, online media, drama and publication etc.
Today, the Disney studio is one of the biggest studios in Hollywood, because Disney Company takes over a lot of other companies such as Marvel Entertainment and Lucasfilm Etc. [2]


Picture 2

Do you know ‘The Lion King’, ‘Tarzan’, ‘Tangled’, ‘The Little Mermaid’ and ‘Frozen’? These are animation movies madeby Disney. Today, Disney is one of the most famous animation film distributors. Now, I’ll introduce some Disney movies that will make your heart warmly.
Do you want to build a snowman? As you know, that song is the part of ‘Frozen’. Frozen is an animation movie about princess Elsa and her sister Anna. Elsa has strange power that makes everything freeze. She doesn’t like her power because when she was young she hurt her sister Anna by her mistake. When Elsa grows up and be an adult, she goes to the coronation. During the coronation, she uses her power in front of everyone, by mistake. She doesn’t want to hurt anyone to her magic, so she gets away from there. Anna goes to Elsa for persuading her sister. Unfortunately, Elsa harms her sister again. Anna goes to small troll who knows magic well, and she heard how to defrost her heart and how control her sister’s power. The answer is ‘true love’. That movie’s true love is not man and woman’s love. They told us ‘True love’ is sacrificing us for other people.
‘Frozen’ scored the best-selling Animation Movie. This movie gathered $ 400 million in North America, and gathered $ 248 million in Japan. Including North America and Japan, they earned more than $1.3 billion profits. [3]
Second Movie is ‘The Lion King’. The Lion King is the story of ‘pride land’ and one lion who called ‘Simba’. His farther, ‘Mufasa’ is the greatest lion leader. Also, simba has uncle who called ‘Scar’. Scar doesn’t Like Mufasa, because Scar wants to sit on the throne instead of his brother. So, he makes a plan for killing his brother. After Mufasa was died, Scar became a king and Simba expelled in ‘pride land’ by his uncle. Simba wanders around desert and Fainting. He was founded by ‘Timon’ and ‘Pumbaa’.
(They also famous characters made by Disney. Even in some Animation, they are main characters!)
Anyway, Simba and his friends are come back to the ‘pride land’ for fighting his uncle and get back the throne.
‘The Lion King’ is most famous handmade Animation. This movie got prizes more than ten times. This movie also made for computer game and TV Animation programs. [4]
