Uhm Jung-hwa and Uhm Tae-woong go head to head

2012/01/05 | 954 views | Permalink | Source

On January 19th, which is the verge of the New Year holiday, a brother and sister will go head to head as Uhm Tae-woong and Uhm Jung-hwa's movies will be released at the same time on the same day.

Uhm Jung-hwa's "Dancing Queen" and Uhm Tae-woong's "Never Ending Story" will be released on January 19th at the same time. Distributed by CJ Entertainment and Hwa and Dam, the two movies differ in genre as they are a human comedy and romantic melodrama, but they will bump into each other with the New Year's coming up.

Sim Entertainment, which the two actors are involved with, put on a poker face at once. A manager at this company said, "All the managers, actors and actresses are perplexed at the fact that the two movies are being released on the same day. They wish each other the best but it's in everyone's mind for their own film to do better. There is tension going around here".

Ahn Sung-ki is also experiencing something like this for the first time in his 40 years of acting. His two movies, "Pacemaker" and "Unbowed", are being released on January 19th at the same time as well.

At the "Pacemaker" premiere on January 3rd, he said, "Something very difficult has come up. I wish the best for the two films but the more I think about it the more I think it's weird". Thank goodness "Papa - Movie" was postponed for another 2 weeks otherwise, Go Ara would also have two movies, "Pacemaker" and "Papa - Movie" being released at the same time.

It seems like the January 19th will be the big day for films this month. The New Years season is the most profitable season for cinemas, coinciding with the winter school break, and situations like this happen when distributors try to have a taste of it with all of their leading movies.
