‘Helpless’ Heats Up Los Angeles

The mystery film Helpless, which marked an unexpected success with a 2.42 million audience in Korea, is also heating up Los Angeles.

Helpless premiered in America’s LA CGV on April 20. The three screens in LA CGV are currently premiering Helpless along with My Way and Nameless Gangster.


Because LA holds many Korean residents, most of the films’ audience was comprised of Koreans, but there were some visitors that are not Korean. The film’s future is looking bright, as local moviegoers are leaving great praise for the film on blogs and Twitter.

Director Byun Young Joo told enews, “I heard that [the film] is being received well in LA. I was happy to hear that it may premiere in more cities.”

Helpless is a mystery about how a former detective chases after his fiancée when she suddenly disappears just one month before their marriage. It stars Lee Sun Gyun, Kim Min Hee and Jo Sung Ha.

The film is based on a mystery novel of the same title by Miyuki Miyabe, the queen of Japanese mysteries, and managed to stay at the top of the Korean Box Office for two weeks in a row in March thanks to Kim Min Hee’s great acting and director Byun’s neat adaptation.
