After postponing the original December premiere, the anxiously-awaited movie Gangnam 1970, starring Lee Min Ho and Kim Rae Won, has set a new release date. It's good news for the fans, and there could possibly be even better news for fans in North America. The film's distributor, Shadowbox, also released two new photos to whet our appetite.
First of all, the new release date is set for January 21, 2015. There is a press conference to be held on December 12 at CGV Apgujeong, Seoul, South Korea. The director and at least some of the actors are expected to attend.
Fans have noticed the change from Megabox to CGV with delighted speculation. CGV is said to be the largest multiplex cinema chain in South Korea, and it also has branches in China and the United States. (Do you see what I mean by good news, North American fans?)
Can beauty buy happiness? Watch as Joo Sang Wook and Han Ye Seul find out on Birth of a Beauty:
The highly anticipated film has already been sold to 11 countries in addition to Korea, as we previously reported in November. The countries are China, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, and Myanmar.
Lee Min Ho will more than likely start promotional activities for the new movie soon. Already there is an ad for tours that originate from China to go to Korea for a fan meet with our perfect man on January 31, 2015.
There is no confirmation that Gangnam 1970 will be shown in the U.S. yet or when, but we can hope, right? What we do know for sure is that there is a CGV Cinema in Los Angeles. And if the movie comes to the U.S., won't the main leads come to promote it?
I know, I'm sounding too excited. It's best to contain the excitement for now and see what happens at the press conference. Stay tuned!
