"The King" up for Academy Nomination

2006/09/21 | 135 views | Permalink | Source

The domestic blockbuster "The King and the Clown" will vie for the honor of Best Foreign Language Film at next year's Academy Awards in the U.S.

The Korean Film Council says its selection of the "The King" for submission to the Academy had more to do with its chances of winning than cinematic quality or commercial potential.

The films "The Host" and "Time" were the other candidates.

A Korean motion picture has yet to win the Oscar for foreign film.
