Both "Chaw" and "Haeundae" are to be released overseas, respectively to the U.K and Canada.

Optimum Releasing who also handled Bong Joon-ho's "Memories of Murder" (2003) will be releasing wild pig movie "Chaw" to British audiences. The film, which features the aforementioned pig terrorizing a small sleepy village scored 1.8 admissions at the Korean box office. 'Haeundae" did even better at the box office pulling in 1,546,976 viewers alone in its opening weekend. Canada based distributer Cine-Asia will be harnessing the titanic film planning theatrical releases in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver followed by a DVD release. The film was previously sold to a number of territories at the Hong Kong Film Mart and more recently to China on a revenue-sharing basis.
