[News] Korean Actors’ App to be Launched in 3 Languages.
The Korea Film Reporters Association [KOFRA] said on April 4 that they concluded a translation deal for its Korean actors’ mobile application in English and Japanese on Tuesday.
The Korean actors’ app, a dictionary of some 400 Korean actors and actresses including professional actors as well as idol stars, has been produced originally in Korean by the KOFRA’s vice-president Yoo Jae-hyuk and the association’s five members.
“We’re aiming at build a scientific database of Korean actors for those overseas. The app is expected to encourage overseas industry insiders and fans to gain a deep insight into Korean actors and contact agencies if they need,” said Kim Ho-il, President of the professional organization.
Film journalist and film festival English MC Nemo Kim teamed up with film critic Darcy Paquet to undertake the English translation side, while Professor of Seokyeong University Chiharu Izumi and film critic Jung Ji-wook are to do the translations in Japanese.
The English and Japanese language apps are expected to be available from September.
