[Korean Film News] Domestic Releases to Feature English Subtitles

Purchasers of DVDs have long been grateful that Korean films are provided with English subtitles (even if the supplements rarely are), and it's high time that European distributors did the same. Acknowledging the fact that Korea has been experiencing exponential growth in the number of foreigners living and working in the country, CJ Entertainment and CGV (the largest multiplex operator in South Korea), have announced that they will be providing English-language subtitles for locally produced movies. This will give foreigners a chance to catch films when they are theatrically released, rather than having to wait until they appear on subtitled DVDs. The first movie to be subtitled will be Jeong Yun-cheol's "A Man Once Superman", slated for release on January 31st. Four to six titles will be selected this year for similar treatment, to be shown concurrently with their domestic release. Other films to be titled will be "Modern Boy", "The Divine Weapon", "The Good, the Bad, and the Weird", as well as an untitled Park Chan-wook film.

Nice. Too bad I'm leaving next month. Missed some good ones this past year.
