    Growing up in these islands, I always heard the part-Hawaiian proverb that describes a very simple work ethic: “No hanahana, no kaukau.” Meaning: if you don’t work, you don’t eat.

    South Korea’s most anticipated blockbuster “Battleship Island” will open Friday at the Consolidated Theatres Pearlridge 16. The film is directed by Seung Wan Ryoo, who directed past films: Arahan, The Berlin File, Veteran and currently working on Berlin File 2 and Veteran 2. The movie stars soon to be wed Song Joong-ki (Descendants of the Sun), Hwang Jung-min, So Ji-sub and singer actress Lee Jung Hyun. Lee brought her weight down to 80 pounds for her role. The film takes place on Hashima Island during the Second World War, where Korean forced laborers working the coal mine attempt an escape. Hashima Island was known for its rich coal mine under the sea bed. The island sits about 15 kilometers from Nagasaki and about 16 acres in size. The island was also depicted in the James Bond film 007 Skyfall.
