"The Good, the Bad, the Weird" with English subtitles

2008/07/17 | Permalink | Source

CJ/CGV will screen "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" (Joheun Nom, Nappeun Nom, Isanghan Nom) with English subtitles at its multiplex in Yongsan, Seoul. "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" is directed by renowned director Kim Jee-woon and the titular roles are played by the stars Lee Byung-hun, Song Kang-ho, and Jung Woo-sung.

The western dubbed as kimchi western will premiere on Thursday and CGV Yongsan will offer the English subtitled screenings for at least two weeks. CJ/CGV, Korea's leading exhibitor, intends to increasingly offer major Korean films with English subtitles to allow foreigners in Seoul to enjoy Korean cinema.

Kim Jee-woon garnered international acclaim with "A Bittersweet Life" (Dalkomhan Insaeng), also with Lee Byung-hun in the leading role. KIM previously worked with Song Kang-ho on "The Foul King" (Banchik Wang), and "The Quiet Family" (Joyonghan Gajeok). Jung Woo-sung played opposite of Jun Ji-hyun in "Daisy".

"The Good, the Bad, the Weird" already played at Festival de Cannes earlier this year and the film was among the most popular films, with major international stars present at its screening. The story is set in Manchuria during Japanese occupation and revolves around a map which holds special interest for several parties.
