  • Pusan Selection The Railroad’s Domestic Release


    The Railroad (2006) is scheduled for a mid-May release in Korean cinemas. The Railroad (Gyeongui Seon) premiered at last year’s 11th Pusan International Film Festival and received favorable criticism from critics and audiences. The film participated in the New Current section; together with Driving with My Wife’s Lover which will open in domestic cinemas later this month.


    Director PARK Heung-sik’s melodrama features two damaged souls who both end up stranded at the last train stop before the DMZ on a night of heavy snow. The man and the woman find comfort in each other’s presence while they are forced to pass time together.


    The Railroad is PARK Heung-sik’s second feature film and it was part of the 2005 KOFIC Production Support for Low-budget Films program. The male lead is played by KIM Gang-woo (Silmido) and SOHN Tae-young (Sad Movie) portrays the female protagonist.
