Korean movie "Take Off", starring Ha Jung-woo, has been chosen as the opening film at a Japanese film festival which kicks off this Friday.

According to a press release from Ha's agency N.O.A Entertainment, the actor and director Kim Yong-hwa will be attending the opening ceremony for the 3rd Old Town Taito International Comedy Film Festival (SHITA COME), to be held in Tokyo on September 17.

SHITA COME, the first full-scale international film festival screening only comedy movies, is held for four days in the Taito City of Tokyo.

"Take Off", inspired by a true story about a group of ski jumpers who prepare to compete during the Winter Olympics, has attracted nearly 8.4 million moviegoers since opening in theaters in Korea on July 29 last year and is currently the twelfth most-watched film in the country to date.

The sports movie has won various awards at other films festivals including the Readers' Jury Award at Buil Film Festival and Best Director, Music and Technology awards at the Busan Film Critics Association Awards.

"Take Off" will premiere in Japan on October 23.
