CJ Entertainment made two major deals at the American Film Market (AFM), signing presales on upcoming films by Korea's top directors Park Chan-wook and Bong Joon-ho. AFM was held in Santa Monica, California, November 5 -12 and is one of the world's largest film trade events.

CJ Ent. sold PARK's "Thirst", starring Song Kang-ho, to Palisades Tartan U.K. for release in Great Britain. The erotically charged thriller about a priest-turned-vampire, wrapped shooting last month and is scheduled for release next spring.

BONG's "Mother - 2009", starring heartthrob Won Bin, went to Diaphana for France. The film is a shift of pace for the director of monster-hit "The Host". WON plays awkward young man framed in a brutal slaying. His devoted mother (Kim Hye-ja) pits herself against a corrupt legal system as she sets out to prove his innocence. The film is also slated for a 2009 spring release.

CJ also sold a package-trio of 2008 features to Thailand's Rose Media for Ryu Jang-ha's "Hello School Girl", Jeong Jeong-hwa's "Lost and Found" and Jeon Yoon-soo's "Portrait of Beauty".
