The soon-to-be-released film "Crossing" has been made into a storybook for children.
The film's PR company, Coming Soon, recently announced that the book will be released on June 23, four days prior to the opening of the film. The company added that the storyline of the film was adapted into a book for children and the whole family.
The story of "Crossing" revolves around a North Korean husband and father named Yong-soo (Cha In-pyo) who crosses the Chinese border to find treatment for his wife's illness and ends up in South Korea. Desperately searching for his lost father, his son Jun-yi journeys across China and Mongolia.
The book's publisher FantaWorks said unlike the film, which aims to portray the characters in an entirely objective perspective, the storybook portrays the reality of North Korea from young Jun-yi's point of view. The book also compares North Korean words with those of South Korea, including football terminologies. The book also contains impressive illustrations based on scenes from the movie.
The publishing company said the book, which tells the tragic realities of a divided nation, will be educational for young students.
