Krickitt Carpenter perches on her living room couch viewing the wedding videotape and frowns when she sees the bride and groom exchanging vows. "It makes me miss her more and more, the girl in the picture," she says. "I wish I knew what she was thinking--she's just gotten married." For Krickitt, the radiant bride and happy groom in the video are just familiar-looking strangers, shadows of people she once knew. But the people on the videotape are Krickitt and her husband, Kim.

The South Korean import "Whatcha Wearin'?" is as sweet and silly and, at times, raunchy as any Hollywood-hatched romantic comedy. Still, even if it's not all that distinguishable from its stateside brethren, the film manages enough sparkly charm and warm comedy to offer a few hours of featherweight fun. The meet-cute here between the recently dumped Hyun-Seung (Ji Sung) and the long-partnered Yun-jung (Kim Ah-joong) involves an accidental phone sex session that's contrived, but also amusing and sexy.

Even in this sexually brazen age, romantic comedies involving transsexuals are not the usual thing. Filmmakers, not surprisingly, aren't rushing to create genial romps about people who've turned to surgery to change their sex because, explains a dictionary, they have "the physical characteristics of one sex but a strong and persistent desire to belong to the other." Which is why the British "Different for Girls" is different for sure.

When Jang Kim missed a point-after-touchdown kick in the second quarter, no one thought too much about it. It turned out to be very crucial. The Chaminade kicker's miscue enabled Notre Dame to come away with a 14-13 victory Friday night at Notre Dame in the season opener for both teams. With Chaminade trailing, 7-0, Eagles' wide receiver Randy Schieber caught a three-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Pablo Suarez with 4:40 left in the first half.

Four decades ago, fisherman Kim Seong-do came to this tiny outcropping known as the lonely island in search of solitude and a good catch. He moved into a cave here in 1971, scratching out a desolate existence on what South Korea calls Dokdo, whose two treeless islets rise from the water like shark's teeth, battered by fierce winter storms. Scaling its seaside cliffs, Kim found a freshwater spring reachable only by a rope strung up a 250-foot-high rock face. At night, his cave came alive with strange creatures.

As architect C.W. Kim gazes out on a magnificent view of the downtown waterfront from his 12th-story office, two of his most distinctive creations loom in the distance: the Hotel Inter-Continental and Columbia Centre. But the images Kim conjures up are vivid memories of his native Chung Buk Province in South Korea, where his parents and two brothers still live. "Lately I've had many dreams of my boyhood in Korea. Maybe that's a sign I will go back," he said.

For years, Kim Young Soon said, she struggled with a cruel uncertainty: She didn't know the crime that landed her in Yodok prison, the notorious penal colony in secretive North Korea. One day in 1970,North Korean secret police agents came for Kim and her family: her parents, husband, three sons and daughter. They were taken to the gulag whose mere name stirs terror among many North Koreans. Life under the regime took its toll on Kim's family. Her parents died of hunger at Yodok, she said.

A head-banging bike messenger in a prolonged punk adolescence, romantically involved with a postoperative transsexual. An ex-British Navy man with a homicidal blood-sugar disorder, engaged in an ill-fated affair with a man-eating matron. A shellshocked World War I vet who hears birds speaking Greek. Such is the autumn itinerary of Rupert Graves, the young English actor best known here for playing upper-crusty Brits, usually in E.M.

A South Korean announcement of reports that archenemy President Kim Il Sung of North Korea was assassinated brought strong denials from his overseas envoys today but only silence from his communist nation. Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, was said to be calm.

When Young O. Kim, a Los Angeles-born Korean-American, arrived at Camp Shelby, Miss., in 1942 as a newly graduated second lieutenant in the U.S. Army, he had no idea what his duties were to be. Kim soon learned that he had been assigned to the new 100th Infantry Battalion, made up of Japanese-American Nisei soldiers. But the camp commander told him that he would be transferred immediately.
