Three major blockbusters worth the cost of 10 billion won are in a predicament. Release dates are being reconsidered due to the Sewol ferry disaster which put the whole country in grief.
They are “Roaring Currents” during the Japanese invasion of Korea, “Pirates” and “Haemoo” which is about an incident on a ship full of Korean immigrants from China.
Their release dates were decided a year ago. However, all of them deal with the sea and vessels, battles and riots. The producers are all thinking deeply now.
“Roaring Currents” was slated for release on the 30th of July and “Pirates” and “Haemoo” in August. The two of them are major blockbusters supported by CJ Entertainment and Lotte Entertainment being aimed for the dead summer. However, an unexpected incident has pressured them. The grief of the nation over this tragedy simply can’t be ignored.
