OCN broadcasts its second made-for-TV film COMA

2006/07/12 | 580 views |  | Permalink | Source

OCN, a cable and satellite TV/film channel, will broadcast its second HDTV film series COMA beginning on July 21.

A five-episode horror series, with each episode about 50 minutes long, COMA is the result of the collaboration between OCN and Crying Fist producer Sio Film. COMA received a favorable review when it was first showcased in April at the Jeonju International Film Festival.

Director Kong Soo-chang, who made his directorial debut with the horror film R-Point, was in charge of the whole series and directed the first and fifth episodes of the film, while three other new directors, Jo Gyoo-ok, You Joon-suk, and Kim Jeong-goo, directed the second through the fourth, respectively.

The series is packed with thrilling storylines. The first episode, "Birthday Party", and the fifth, "Dr. Chang Seo-won", are horrific stories with a surprise twist. The second episode is a psycho-thriller called "The Gap", the third is a mystery titled, "The Necklace", while the fourth, "Hong as Red", is a visual horror.

Actors Lee Se-eun, Myeong Ji-yeon, Im Won-hee, Lee Yeong-jin, and Lee Jeong-heon, respectively, appear as protagonist in each episode. The entire series loosely tells the story of a girl who mysteriously disappeared in a hospital ten years ago. Each episode reveals the five secrets, the keys to the missing case.

COMA is OCN's second made-for-TV film two years after the company produced and broadcast Same Bed, Different Dreams in November 2004. Like HBO, a major US film channel that produces its own made-for-TV films under the title HBO Originals, OCN has named its TV films OCN Originals.

"We have completed a contract with Buena Vista International TV on the copyrights of COMA and plans to distribute the film throughout Asia, with the exception of Japan, and we are also currently talking with European and Japanese broadcasting companies for the film's copyrights", said OCN.
