Lotte Cinema Avenuel in Myeongdong will offer the following subtitled films: the espionage romantic comedy "My Girlfriend is an Agent" (English, Japanese); teen ghost story "A Blood Pledge" ("Whispering Corridors 5" - English); "Mother - 2009" (English), Bong Joon-ho's dramatic thriller that received critical acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival; "Marine Boy" (English), which showcases large-scale water action sequences; "Scandal Makers" ("Speedy Scandal" - English), a box office smash family comedy starring Cha Tae-hyun; auction house scandal story "Insadong Scandal" (Japanese); and "Chaw" (Japanese) featuring a homicidal hog.
