The film "Mother - 2009" by Bong Joon-ho will be submitted for consideration for next year's Academy Awards. The Korean Film Council on Monday announced the selection to compete for the Best Foreign Language Film in the 82nd Academy Awards in 2010.
The KFC said, "The final decision came down to choosing between "Mother - 2009" and "Breathless", and based on the artistry of the film, the influence of the distributor, the reputation of the director and the level of recognition of the film, we chose "Mother - 2009" in the end".
The Korea Education Broadcasting System (EBS) apologized Tuesday for plagiarizing a Japanese television program. It said "Sci-Fun", a science experiment program, outsourced to a subcontractor, was found to have copycatted a similar Japanese TV program.
