[NEW FILMS]"Resurrection of the Little Match Girl"

Science Fiction / 125 min. / Korean -- Opens Friday


After problems in production and a delayed release, Korea's most expensive blockbuster is ready to hit the screens.

Ju (Kim Hyun-seong) is an ordinary guy who delivers Chinese food for a living and loves computer games. He goes to a certain game room because he has a crush on a clerk, Hui-mi (Lim Eun-kyung). Eventually he becomes engrossed in an online role-playing game in which everyone is obsessed with a character, Little Match Girl. An evil syndicate and a gaggle of gangs either aid or thwart Ju's near-mythological quest to save the cyber girl.

Directed by Jang Seon-woo, whose works are known for their powerful visuals and storytelling. The singers Kim Jin-pyo and Kangta co-star.
