"Duelist" Released in Egypt

2006/12/14 | 128 views | Permalink | Source

A Korean film has been exported to Egypt for 10,000 dollars for the first time in Korea's film history. Egyptian film distributor Good News Group held a preview of "Duelist" directed by Lee Myung-se in the country's capital of Cairo on Wednesday, with some 100 invited film reporters attending.

"Duelist" is the first Korean movie to be sold to an Egyptian film distributor for commercial viewing, although some Korean movies have been introduced to the Cairo International Film Festival.

The distributor will show the movie in four theaters in Cairo for two weeks from Thursday. An executive at the company expressed his confidence in the movie's success there. "I think the movie will capture Egyptians' interest with its spectacular martial arts performances", he said.

The Egyptian daily Al-Gomhuria said that the country has shown interest in Korean dramas and movies since the Korean hit drama "Winter Sonata" was aired on its national TV.

Meanwhile, the Korean Embassy in Egypt used the preview to promote Korea by distributing its promotional booklet entitled "Dynamic Korea". It also played a videotape introducing the city of Pyeongchang as a candidate city for the 2014 Winter Olympics.
