"Le Grand Chef Kimchi War" (2010), the prequel to Korean culinary hit "Le Grand Chef" (2007) will be released both locally and in the US this month. The film's producer IROOM Pictures announced a deal where the film will open across 20 major US cities including New York, Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angeles on February 12.

The film is to screen at AMC theaters, one of the largest multiplex chains in North America. It will be the first time a Korean film is to be released simultaneously in both territories. The film's overseas distributor JS Media & Entertainment, a company that specializes in the US release of Korean films, is currently negotiating the number of screens it will play on.

Based on a popular comic series by Korean artist Huh Young-man, the film is directed by Baek Dong-hoon. It stars actors Jin Goo and Kim Jung-eun as two rival chefs in a kimchi competition that aims to globalize the famous Korean dish.
