The film industry was also in an emergency due to the spread of COVID-19. ‘Seobok’, which was the most anticipated work at the end of the year, eventually gave up opening this year.
CJ Entertainment announced on the 7th that “The movie ‘Seobok’ has decided to temporarily postpone the release schedule scheduled for December due to the spread of the pandemic.”
“Amid growing social concerns about the virus, we decided to postpone the release after deep consideration to prevent further spread and damage in advance. We ask for your generous understanding of all who have been waiting for the release of ‘Seobok’. We will inform you of the release schedule in the future. We hope that the situation caused by the virus will improve as soon as possible,” the agency said.
‘Seobok’, starring Park Bo-gum, was about to be released in December as a tentpole movie aimed at the end of the year, but due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, social distancing in the metropolitan area has widened from stage 2 to stage 2.5. After the upgrade and the theater operation was upgraded to 9 pm, the release was eventually abandoned.
‘Seobok’ is a film about the story of Kiheon, an intelligence agency, who is in charge of the last task in his life to transfer mankind’s first cloned human, Seobok, in top secret, and gets caught up in an unexpected situation while taking a special walk in the pursuit of various forces targeting Seobok. Director Lee Yong-ju, who brought the first love syndrome nationwide with ‘Introduction to Architecture’, directed ‘Seobok’. Gong Yoo, Park Bo-gum, and Jo Woo-jin appear.
