An offical at Taewon explained that they decided to move up the film’s release to Wednesday, instead of the usual Thursday, on high anticipation for the film.
“Into the Gunfiire” had started to garner much hype even ahead of going into production due to its A-list cast composed of actors Cha Seung-won, Kim Seung-woo, Kwon Sang-woo and T.O.P from idol group Big Bang,
The film had also caught the eye of several foreign countries at the film market held concurrently with this year’s Cannes Film Festival, selling to the United Kingdom, Germany, Singapore and Russia.
Distributors in other countries including Australia, China, Switzerland, Taiwan and Spain are showing great interest in purchasing rights for the film.
“Into the Gunfiire”, paying tribute to the 60th anniversary of the war, is based on the true events during the Korean War where 71 student soldiers fought to protect a support line along the Nakdong River.
