LE GRAND CHEF gives BEOWULF the smackdown

I always like a story of home-grown films giving Hollywood films the good ol' what-for. That is exactly what happened in South Korea when foodie drama Le Grand Chef fed Beowulf to the dogs. The defeat was maybe not so dramatic, but still after playing for three weeks Le Grand Chef relegated Beowulf to number two on its opening weekend. Chef is based on a popular Korean comic and stars the ever interesting Im Won-hee, as well as Kim Kang-woo, Kim Sang-ho and Lee Ha-na. This film looks to please fans of Iron Chef or Top Chef or any other cooking show. The trailer profiles some amazing food prep, that might send some vegitarians to the door, but will have Korean food lovers drooling. Kings anyone?
