Foreign interest heats up for hero movie Jeon Woo Chi

Looks like buzz for the upcoming fantasy-action movie Jeon Woo Chi — starring Kang Dong-won and Im Soo-jung — is heating up. The film has just sold to nine overseas markets even before it makes its Korean premiere later this winter.

According to CJ Entertainment, Jeon Woo Chi screened a five-minute promo video at the American Film Market (“the largest motion picture trade show in the world”) on November 4. Following that, the film was sold to four European nations and five Asian and Southeast Asian countries. (Among the buyers: Germany, the Netherlands, China.) The film market is still open for another three days, however, so the number may go up. (Catch the trailer below; it looks like a hella fun ride.)

A source from United Pictures and M Line Distribution, which is in charge of overseas sales for Jeon Woo Chi, explained that buyers came calling from the first day, having heard about the hot interest in the promo video of the “Korean-style hero movie,” which takes the subject of Taoist magic and blends it with a modern sensibility. The film premieres in Korea on December 23.

Kang Dong-won stars as Jeon Woo Chi, a Taoist wizard from the Joseon age who is locked in a magic scroll. When the seal is broken 500 years later, Jeon Woo Chi is transported to current times and fights the monsters that plague modern society.

I didn't think Im SooJung could pull off the sexy look very well, but looks like I was proven wrong :P

maybe because i don't read/write korean so i don't understand. but from the trailer, it doesn't look like a movie with much substance. all i see is jumping around in illogical contexts or circumstances. but KDW sure is an eye-candy on big screen. and im soo jung is all grown up~

Though i dont really understand what was in the trailer It seems theyve put alot of efforts to make this movie interesting and very promising! seems it has little touch of comedy too, btw, @ 30s i wonder if she was the lead girl from geun seok's movie DOREMIFASOLASIDO?

Hoping it will get a good high rates from the moviegoers! ~

Wow, the Netherlands bought it (I'm Dutch so..). Does that mean I'll be able to watch it in the cinema? If so, that would be awesome! We don't have many Korean movies airing here. ooh to see Kang Dong Won on the big screen (faints)

Just the premise of people jumping around all cool like in traditional Korean clothing is tempting enough. Even if it's a movie without much substance, I'd watch it for the clothing and, hopefully, awesome fight scenes. Maybe it'll be like old time Hong Kong martial art films where the plot is boring but the fight scenes are great to watch.
