Park Chan-wook's "Thirst" by many regarded as the most anticipated film of the year is among the first big projects to announce its release. Thirst will draw first blood on 30 April.

PARK collected an impressive line-up with Song Kang-ho taking charge of the lead role. He will play a priest who turns into a vampire when he tests a newly developed vaccine on himself. He then develops strong feelings for his friend's wife; the couple will be portrayed by Kim Ok-bin and Shin Ha-kyun.

PARK's international appeal brought Hollywood studios Universal and Focus aboard the CJ Entertainment project.PARK confirmed rumours about being sought after by Hollywood, saying he receives a Hollywood scenario on a weekly basis.
