[News] Jang Keun Suk's Film Human Time to Premiere in Berlin - 2018-01-26

The BEST news of the day...and JKS keeps racking up good news during the final days of January, 2018 - is that his latest film, Human Time, has been selected to premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February. The film's premiere will occur sometime between Feb 15th and the 25th.

The final title Director and Producer Kim Ki Duk chose for the film is Human, Space, Time and Humanity. The curators of the Festival were highly impressed with Kim's film, saying it should create a lively debate among the audience.

To answer any questions about his appearance on the red carpet at the Berlin Film Festival, Jang Keun Suk will be unavailable to attend to premiere as he will be filming his new drama, Switch - Change the World, and doing an Aiia (Toki Meki) Fan Meeting during that time. However, every Eel, worldwide, will be cheering for Kim Ki Duk, JKS, and the rest of the spectacular cast during the Festival.

From previous reports a Korean distributor has already signed on to distribute the film worldwide. How long it will take to reach our local markets remains an unknown; however, with the Berlin premiere in place, distribution of the film in selected cities and movie houses should occur with a few months or weeks. Nevertheless, it may take a year or more before it's available online or on television.
