Local film weekly magazine, Cine 21, provided its annual list of the most powerful players in the Korean film industry, with CJ Entertainment president KIM Joo-seong at the top for the first time.

In second place was Cha Seung-jae of SIDUS FNH, switching from the top spot last year and the year before. In third was Cinema Service founder and director Kang Woo-seok, ("Silmido", "Hanbando", and the upcoming Kang Chul-joon). Mediaplex CEO Kim Woo-taek came in fourth while "The Host" helmer Bong Joon-ho was in fifth place.

The ranking are voted on by 85 leading film industry representatives. Other notables included MK Pictures producer SHIM Jae-myung at no.6, Lotte Entertainment CEO KIM Kwang-seop at 7, top Korean actor Song Kang-ho at 8 and director Park Chan-wook, currently shooting his latest film "Thirst" with SONG at no. 9. International superstar Rain (JUNG Ji-hoon) entered the list for the first time at no. 36.
