Marketing has started for "Master and Man - Movie", the latest film from director Cho Sung-kyu that literally translates as the era of madness. The movie is set to open in theaters on July 18th, although the run is currently expected to be limited. The sexually charged drama will make most of its money through streaming.
"Master and Man - Movie" is based on a popular 19+ erotic comic that has achieved some 25 million pageviews over its extended run. This is actually the second adaptation of the story- the first animated version "Master and Man" was created by "Train to Busan" director Yeon Sang-ho back in 2014, back when he still worked principally in cartooning.
This time around the director is the ever prolific Cho Sung-kyu, who frequently works with romance and other various oddball independent film projects. This will be his first project featuring explicit sexual content.
