A source at Intzfilm said, 'We are expecting that many people from across Asia will invest in our project, as H.O.T members are very popular in Japan and Hong Kong, and popular Japanese singers will also star in the film.'
'Age of Peace', which will be completed by May, will open to public in the two countries in July and will then be screened in foreign countries from December.
