UK release for PARK's "I'm a Cyborg, but that's Ok"

Park Chan-wook keeps demanding international attention. After the recent disclosure of Charlize Theron's plan to produce and star in a remake of PARK's "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" (Chinjeorhan Geumjassi)",I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK" (Ssaibogeujiman Gwaenjanha) is scheduled for a release in UK cinemas on April 4.

One of the leading progressive newspapers The Guardian interviewed PARK for the occasion. I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK is praised for its beautiful visuals and its 'offbeat charms'. PARK intended to make a film which his 12-year-old daughter is also able to watch with her friends. The interview inevitably also deals with his famed vengeance trilogy and violence in film and society.

"I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK's" cast includes Korea's major stars Im Soo-jung and JUNG Ji-hoon (pop star Rain). Both portray characters in a mental institute. Rain's character falls in love with a girl who believes she is a cyborg.

Rain is currently one of the numerous Korean actors who are pursued by Hollywood. He is working on "Ninja Assassin", his second collaboration with the Wachowski brothers after Speed Racer. Speed Racer's release is imminent.

PARK is working on his next project "Thirst", a vampire film which is pre-sold to France and Russia before filming started. Song Kang-ho and Kim Ok-bin will tackle the leading roles.
