2009/05/20 Source

Director Bong Joon-ho's new film "Mother - 2009" has been sold to four countries at the Cannes Film Market. An official of film company CJ Entertainment has reported that "Mother - 2009", starring venerable actress Kim Hye-ja and actor Won Bin, was sold to Portugal, former Yugoslavia, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The number of buyers is expected to rise even more, as Brazil and Australia are showing keen interest in the film as well.

Moreover, a major American movie studio has proposed a remake of the film in Hollywood. CJ Entertainment says the deal may be finalized some time this year, if everything goes well as anticipated.

Director Park Chan-wook's controversial "Thirst" is also faring well in the film market. Three countries have purchased the film in the first two days of the market. In particular, Spain and Brazil have paid the highest-ever price for a Korean film.
