"Barefoot Dream" ("Higanjima"), the Japanese manga adaption just recently seen at Pusan will be released January of 2010. The film is directed by Kim Tae-gyoon, responsible for Korea's 2008 Best Foreign Language entry, "Crossing" (2008). The screen play has been adapted from the manga by Tetsuya Oishi of Deathnote fame.

On the Higan (meaning island in Japanese) a teenager named Akira played by Hideo Ishiguro has lost his older brother (Dai Watanabe). The island however is a dark, scary place full of vampires and no one has ever escaped alive. Director KIM also helmed "Volcano High", another successful manga adaption in 2001.
