The movie ‘Minari’ (director Lee Issac Chung) will be released in Korea today (3rd).
‘Minari’ is a wonderful story about a very special journey of a Korean family who left for an unfamiliar United States in search of hope. According to the Integrated Cinematography Network of the Film Promotion Commission, it is ranked first with a whopping 38% of the reservation rate as of 7 am today, the day of its release.
The film, based on the autobiographical experience of Korean-American director Lee Issac Chung, is a story of a Korean family, but it delicately dissolves a universal message and received hot praise from overseas with a broad consensus.
Earlier, the Sundance Film Festival has won 75 crowns around the world starting with the Jury Awards, and recently won the Best Foreign Language Film Award at the Golden Globe Awards, which is called the ‘Academy’s Preliminary Exhibition’.
In particular, since last year’s director Bong Joon-ho’s ‘Parasite’ won the Golden Globe Foreign Language Film Award, the Oscars have won the Best Picture, Director’s Award, and Screenplay Award, so the expectation for ‘Minari’ is rising.
It is paying attention to what kind of criticism the ‘Minari’, which is setting a remarkable record, will receive in Korea.
