Directed by Shim Hyung-rae (Yongary, Tirano's Claws). In modern-day LA, something huge is waking beneath the city. Imoogi is stirring and waiting to destroy civilization but the key to defeating him lies 500 years in the past. Odd that in its very well developed homepage, a lot of detail is given to the
various CGI monsters, but not a single mention is made of the human cast...
Info from Seoul Now adds 'Legend of the Evil Lake' which didn't appear to be Horror upon first discovery...
Among them, it has high hopes for four: horror films 'Wishing Stairs,' the second sequel to the 1998 hit 'Whispering Corridors,' 'Legend of the Evil Lake,' which is being shot entirely in China and 'Into the Mirror,' and comedy 'Crazy for First Love,' starring Cha Tae-hyun of 'My Sassy Girl' and Sohn Ye-jin of 'The Classic.'
CJ Entertainment, Korea's second-largest film distributor, is packing 'The Uninvited,' a horror film featuring top stars Park Shin-yang and Jun Ji-hyun, and 'The Scandal' - both in production. 'Though they will not be screened, we have good hopes of selling them because they are great stories and feature actors and directors many foreign buyers will recognize,' said Lee Young-jun, CJ's International Sales & Acquisition director.
