Korean Cinema to Open in Japan

2006/07/07 Source

A cinema exclusively for Korean films will open in Shibuya, Japan, in mid-October.

The decision to establish the Korean movie theater came after the Korean Film Council and Japan's art theater Image Forum agreed to screen non-mainstream Korean films for 12 weeks a year.

According to the KFIC on Thursday, the two Korean films "The Barley Harvest Season" and "Possible Changes" were selected as the first works to be screened at the cinema.

Image Forum, which is in charge of promoting the Korean movies in Japan, will soon launch full-fledged marketing activities, including hosting a press preview in mid-July. Technical work needed for the Japanese release, such as dubbing and printing, has been completed.

KFIC official Park Deok-ho said that the two movies' directors and performers plan to visit Japan for promotional activities prior to the release.

"The Tale of Cinema" is speculated to be the next Korean film to be screened at the movie theater.
