테스트

The director of “Wonderful Days” (2003), Kim Moon-saeng, is turning Bernard Werber’s science-fiction trilogy, “Les Fourmis (The Ants),” into a film.
Werber proposed that Kim direct the film after seeing Wonderful Days in France.
Korea and France will defray 50 percent of the 10 million euros ($15 million) production costs, according to Studio 3303, the Korean production company in charge.
The company is currently looking for a French production partner.
The film will be in English, and production starts this year and should finish in 2011.
The Ants has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide and it has been translated into more than 30 languages.
The books were published between 1991 and 1996.
