The documentary film Flight ("Bi-sang") (Director: Im Yoo-cheol, Production: Emotion Pictures), which was based on a Korean professional soccer team, succeeded in attracting 10,000 viewers, which is significant as the Korean movie-going public has been known to largely ignore the genre.

Having been previewed since Dec. 7 in special screenings on three theaters in Seoul and Incheon, such as CGV Sangam, Incheon, and Gyeyang, Flight is now being screened on nine theaters, such as CGV Gangbyeon, Jooan, Dongsuwon, Seomyeon, Film Forum, and Cine Cube, resulting in 13,000 viewers.

Based on the real story about the Incheon United FC, a professional soccer team in the Korean Soccer League, who ranked no. 1 in the league and went on to become the final champion last year after its establishment in 2004 and a couple of years of being in the low ranks, Flight shows the two-year struggle of a low-ranking soccer team to win the semi-finals along with various soccer games of the United FC from December 2004. It also features the personal stories of Team Coach Jang, Oe-Ryong and the team members. The team's passion for soccer and the triumph of the human will lie at the core of the film's narrative.

"In a survey conducted before the release of the film, about 80% of the audience who saw the film said, 'the film is fun and touching regardless of the age or whether or not the viewer is a soccer fan', which shows the audience's enthusiastic response", said a representative from Emotion Pictures. "The number of the audience continues to increase".
