The film features some of greatest talent in the world from South Korea, both on screen and off and we are excited to be able to showcase this talent to a UK audience on Amazon Prime Video.”
Jae Hyuk Lee, Head Producer at Factual STUDIOS, CJENM, added: ‘‘This project clearly tells us why international collaboration is crucial in the midst of a crisis in terms of sharing resources and market insights.”
