Acclaimed movie makers have unveiled a campaign clip to urge the public to vote at South Korea’s presidential election.
The clip entitled “Congratulations on Voting” [translated title], uploaded on YouTube last Sunday, features directors Park Chan-wook of “Old Boy,” Bong Joon-ho of “The Host,” Kim Ji-woon of “I Saw the Devil,” Lee Joon-ik of “The King and the Clown” and actor Jung Jin-young.
In the two-minute long movie, the six sing “Congratulation on Voting” to the tune of "Happy Birthday" and emphasize the absolute need for everyone to cast a vote.
The directors and actor are also well-known for their passionate support for the Seoul Art Cinema, Seoul’s only non-profit theater and film archive.
Produced by director Jung Yoon-chul of “Marathon,” the clip has been the talk of the town as it was made with videos that the movie makers filmed themselves with their smart phones.
Meanwhile, South Korea’s presidential election is set to be held on Wednesday.
