"My Wife is a Gangster 3" Sold at AFM

The Korean comic action film "My Wife is a Gangster 3" has garnered much attention from Asian buyers at the recently-held American Film Market. Showbox, the film's distributor, said Tuesday that the film had been sold for a total of 660,000 dollars (620 million won) to eight Asian nations -- Hong Kong, China, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam. "The price is the highest ever paid for a Korean movie at the market by Asian nations except Japan", it added.

"In the case of Thailand, it signed a deal to invest and distribute the movie in the country instead of just importing it, which shows that the country is confident of its success", Showbox said. "Vietnam agreed to pay a price similar to what it paid to buy "King Kong, making the movie the most expensive Korean movie it has imported". Vietnam is reported to have high expectation for the film because it stars Shu Qi, a Hong Kong actress who enjoys great popularity in Vietnam.

"My Wife is a Gangster 3" also sold to Germany, and the distributor expects more sales after the film is completed because other countries like the U.S., Britain and France also showed great interest. "Since the remake copyright of "My Wife is a Gangster 1" was sold to Hollywood in 2001, foreign buyers have showed considerable interest in this movie series", it said.

Starring Lee Beom-soo, Hyun Young, and Oh Ji-ho in addition to Shu Qi, the movie will be released on Dec. 28.
