Upcoming Korean film “Mr. Go,” produced in full 3D for the first time in Korean film history, is to bring an unusual sense of excitement this summer.
The film’s investor and local distributor Showbox unveiled the teaser poster on March 15, impressing local moviegoers with its main character Ling Ling, a baseball playing gorilla holding a baseball.
In the poster, Ling Ling represents a vivid image of the huge and hairy creature, made 100% with Korean technology. The realistic image is enough to convince us its slogan, “Imagination becomes reality” [translated phrase].
Helmed by director Kim Yong-hwa of the box office hits “200 Pounds Beauty” and “Take Off,” the movie depicts Ling Ling and his 13-year-old manager Wei Wei [Xu Jiao of "CJ7"] joining a Korean professional baseball team and becoming a superstar with the help of an agent Seong Chung-soo [Seong Dong-il].
Inspired by cartoonist Heo Young-man’s popular comic “The 7th Club,” the sports drama pic is to open at Korean theaters this July. Then they plan to head overseas including to 5,000 Chinese screens, thanks to its partnership wth a major Chinese distributor, Huayi Brothers.
