[HanCinema's News] Studio Santa Claus Actors Express Support for "Carter"
By William Schwartz | Published on
On August 8th, a massive social media campaign by agency Studio Santa Claus for the action film "Carter" was set into motion. The Netflix film stars Joo Won. The participating performers include Park Se-wan, Choi Tae-joon, Min Jin-woong, Ryu Kyung-soo, Kang Byul, Jang Hee-ryung, Lim Jae-hyeok, Lim Hyun-ju, Lee E-dam, Oh Hye-soo, Lee Won-jung, Kwon Seung-woo, Jung Hwan, Lee Suwoong, Ryu Sung-rok, and Hwang Bo-un among others.
While the campaign itself appears to have been coordinated by Studio Santa Claus, there are few similarities between the SNS posts aside from the references to the movie itself. Most use different images. The sentiments expressed by the actors also differ. Lim Jae-hyuk claimed to watch it again immediately after the first watch. Lee E-dam wrote, "Carter" is finally here. Lee Won-jung wrote "let's go Cater" in English, typo included. "Carter" was released worldwide on August 5th.
