One Teaser and Two Posters for the South Korean Baseball Drama Fighting Spirit

1 Comment

At least I think it’s a drama. The embedded trailer certainly looks dramatic, that is, until someone is hit by a pitcher, an event which is accompanied by a cartoon sound effect. The ensuing jump kick is a little curious, as well. No matter — I’m rather excited to see director Kim Sang-jin’s “Fighting Spirit”, mostly because I’ve never seen a South Korean movie about baseball before. The film, which follows the career revival of a former sports superstar, opens in South Korean this September. Curious parties are instructed to investigate the clip below.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)

    Ha. Reminds me of when Chan-ho Park jump-kicked that dude during a game back when he was with the Dodgers. Maybe that’s the “joke” there.
