"71-Into The Fire" to open June 16

John H. Lee's big-budget war drama "71-Into the Fire" is to have its local release nationwide on June 16, according to Taewon Entertainment, the film's producer. High anticipation for the film resulted in moving its scheduled June 25 opening ahead to the 16th. The film has drawn much hype both at home and abroad for its production values, powerful historical narrative, and A-list casting.

The film is inspired by the true-life story of 71 student soldiers who fought a fierce and impossible battle to protect a support line along the Nakdong River during the Korean War. It stars top actors Cha Seung-won, Kim Seung-woo, kwon Sang-woo and Choi Seung-hyun (known also as T.O.P from the pop idol group Big Bang.) The film's release pays tribute to the 60th Anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War on June 25, 1950.

South Korean sales agent Finecut recently did brisk sales of the film at the Cannes Film Festival's film market, selling it to Ascot Elite for German-speaking Europe and Benelux, to UK's Showbox for the United Kingdom, as well as Singapore and Russia.
