Leafie, A Hen Into The Wild (마당을 나온 암탉)

마당을 나온 암탉 (Ma-dang-eul Na-on Am-talk)

Directed by Oh Seong-yoon (오성윤)

Screenplay by ,

Animation Adventure Drama

93min | Release date in South Korea :

Synopsis
Based on a bestselling preteen novel of the same title that has sold more than 1 million copies in Korea, “Leafie, A Hen into the Wild” is about a laying hen named Leafie who is destined to live the “same old” repetitive life confined on the chicken farm.
Her fate changes when she escapes from the chicken farm and hatches a duck egg. With the duckling (who believes Leafie to be his mother), sets off on a journey into the wild with her new son to find her freedom.
In an industry dominated by U.S. studios like Disney, Pixar and DreamWorks and Japanese studios such as Studio Ghibli, few animated Korean films have made it to the box office in recent years. But “Leafie, A Hen into the Wild,” which was nearly six years in the making, challenges the status quo. Working with a group of talented Korean illustrators who have created animation for Pixar and Disney, the images resemble a painting.
Voicing the main characters are veteran actors Choi Min-sik from “I Saw the Devil” (2010), and actress Moon So-ri from “Forever the Moment” (2007). The duckling is played by rising teen actor Yoo Seung-ho, best known for his childhood role in “The Way Home” (2002).
The film opens July 28, just in time for children’s summer break season.

  • South Korean Box Office in 2011

    2012/01/14, Source,
    Korean cinema expert Darcy Paquet looks back at the results of 2011's box office with some unexpected hits and misses, the rise of independent features, and how audiences confirmed they value story over spectacle. Although the number crunchers in Hollywood estimate that US theatrical admissions sank to their lowest level since 1995, things were not so gloomy in Korea. With an estimated 160 million tickets sold (more precise figures will become available at a later date), it appears that Korea has approached or broken the modern-day record for admissions. In 2010, total admissions stopped at 146.8 million. In monetary terms, 2011 was certainly the best year ever, given the 3D surcharge and rising average ticket prices. Americans may be growing tired of the theatrical movie-going experience, but young Koreans still crowd the multiplexes,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Leafie, A Hen Into The Wild": A Mother's Love and Sacrifice.

    2012/01/07,
    It's Korea's highest grossing animation to date, Oh Seong-yoon's "Leafie, A Hen Into The Wild" is a touching tale of a mother's love and self-sacrifice. The film is based on the pre-teen novel of the same name and boasts gorgeous visuals and top voice acting in a story that is filled with equal parts of light-hearted comedy and melodrama. Local Korean theaters have generally been dominated by animations from neighboring Japan as well Hollywood blockbusters such as "Kung Fu Panda" and the many "Pokémon" films. However, "Leafie" has proven that the Korean film industry cannot only produce a top quality animation, but they can do so on there own terms as the film's 'Koreaness' is embedded in both its visuals and within its doleful, yet up-lifting, tale of motherhood,...More
