Japanese Movies Expected to Gain Popularity in Korea

Japanese movies, which are increasingly being screened in Korea after the government took steps to open the Korean movie market to films made in Japan, are expected to generate interest from the nation.
The number of viewers who watched the film 'Love Letter', directed by Japanese director Iwai Sunchi, surpassed 100,000 in Seoul just two days after it was released on November 20.
Another Japanese film, 'Ring', which attracted 1.5 million viewers in Japan last year, will be screened in Korea from December 11.
The movie tells story of a 'video curse' resulting from a woman's hatred and rancor, which condemns every viewer of a specific video to death a week after watching it.
