“April Snow” to Be Re-Released in Japan
2006, June 19
The Korean movie “April Snow” starring Bae Yong-jun and Son Ye-jin will be released in an uncut edition in Toho Cinemas Roppongi Hills and Toho Cinemas Takatsuki in Japan from Sept. 9, according to Bae’s official Japanese website.
The new edition includes more than 20 scenes that were originally cut, with its running time increased by 30 minutes to 140 minutes. It also describes the love between the two leading characters in a more detailed and elaborate way, with a different ending.
Earning some 2.72 billion yen (26 billion won) when it was first released in Japan last year, the movie received such a passionate response from viewers that some watched it several times. There is high expectation that the re-release will also attract much attention from Japanese fans.
