Lee Joon-gi to Visit Taiwan to Promote "The King and The Clown"

2006/05/03 | Permalink | Source

Actor Lee Joon-gi, who played the lead role in the recent hit movie "The King and the Clown", will visit Taiwan to promote the film ahead of its release there on May 12.

CJ Entertainment, the distributor of the movie, said Tuesday that Lee will make a two-day trip to Taiwan during the weekend. He will give interviews with local media outlets and attend the preview of the movie on Sunday, where he will hold a session to express his gratitude to local fans.

Lee was invited to the country by Group Power, the Taiwanese distributor of the movie. Gam Woo-sung and Chung Jae-young, the other two protagonists of the movie, were also invited, but they reportedly could not accept the invitation for personal reasons.

CJ said that Group Power is a medium-sized film distributor that has distributed a number of Korean movies so far and has a good reputation for marketing films, so expectations are high that the movie will draw much attention there. "Since Lee is already quite popular in Taiwan through his other movies and dramas, we expect Lee's popularity will also help attract viewers there", it added.

Since it is a period movie, there will be English subtitles for the first part of the movie explaining the historical background of the movie--the story of King Yeonsan and his time during the Joseon Dynasty--to help viewers better understand the picture. The subtitles were translated by Kim Yong-ok, the famous philosopher.
