Director Kim Ki-duck’s latest film "Time" will be released on Aug. 24. The distributor, Sponge, said Tuesday that they are planning to show the film in 10 to 15 theaters nationwide, although the number of theaters may change.
"Time" has drawn so much attention from around the world that its copyright has already been sold to some 30 nations. It was chosen as the opening film at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in Czech and nominated in the competition category at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada and Sitges International Film Festival of Catalonia in Spain.
Sung Hyun-ah and Ha Jeong-woo play lovers who chose to undergo cosmetic surgery to continue to win each other’s heart against the passage of time.
Korean fans could have missed Kim’s new film because Kim, who was disappointed in the shabby structure of the Korean artistic film market, did not show interest in releasing it here.
