Modern Korean Classics Look for New Buyers
Korean sales agent FINECUT has partnered with top Korean film house Bom Film Productions to represent the group’s titles internationally.
Set up by producer OH Jung-wan in 1999, Bom is a longtime industry leader that has been responsible for several major modern Korean titles from leading directors such as KIM Jee-woon (The Foul King, 2000; A Tale Of Two Sisters, 2003; A Bittersweet Life, 2005), E J-yong (Untold Scandal, 2003), Hong Sangsoo (Woman On The Beach, 2006; Night And Day, 2008) and LEE Yoon-ki (Come Rain, Come Shine, 2011), as well as PARK Chan-wook’s segment Cut from the omnibus Three… Extremes (2004).
Though Bom isn’t currently fielding any new titles, FINECUT will now handle sales for all their former films, up to and including last year A Man and a Woman with GONG Yoo and JEON Do-yeon from director LEE Yoon-ki.
Meanwhile, FINECUT had several titles in their lineup at the recent Hong Kong International Film and TV Market, including Hong’s latest On the Beach at Night Alone, which earned actress KIM Min-hee the Silver Bear for Best Actress from the Berlin International Film Festival, PARK Hoon-jung’s upcoming spy action-thriller V.I.P. from Warner Bros. Korea with JANG Dong-gun and KIM Myung-min, the mystery drama A Day from JO Seon-ho once again with KIM Myung-min and also BYUN Yo-han, and LIM Dae-woong’s horror-mystery House of the Disappeared featuring Lost alumni KIM Yun-jin.
