NEW

1.  Kim Seondal

Starring Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Jae Hyun

Kim In Hong, better known as Kim Seondal (Yoo Seung Ho from Ruler: Master of the Mask), is a con man unlike any other. With dashing good looks and the boldness to do and say anything, the only thing he steals more often than money is the heart of women across the nation. Like any good heist master, Kim Seondal has assembled a team. Fresh recruit Bo Won (Go Chang Suk from Kill Me, Heal Me and Tabloid Truth), feisty ahjumma Female Buddhist Yoon (Ra Mi Ran from Please, Come Back Mister and Answer Me 1988) and eager-to-please Gyun (Xiumin from EXO-M) are his entourage of thieves. Under the fine tutelage of Kim Seondal, they are a legendary team of swindlers. For their greatest plan, they decide to start stealing tobacco, the most expensive product on the trade market. This puts them at odds with Sung Dae Ryeon (Jo Jae Hyun from The Fatal Encounter), an insanely powerful man who wouldn’t think twice before selling out the nation for personal profit. Fooling this heartless scumbag is both dangerous and impossible. Beating him requires the kind of con that gets men into the history books, and Kim Seondal is eager to make history. Also known with the subtitle The Man Who Sells the River, Kim Seondal is written and directed by Park Dae Min (Private Eye). The film is based on “Bongyi Kim Sunda,” an ancient satirical novel about a man who sold the Taedong River.

Starring Im Soo Jung and Yoo Yun Suk

Ji Yeon (Im Soo Jung from Time Renegades) works at a bar in Macao. Even though she is a university graduate, Ji Yeon is forced to stay at the bar to pay off a debt. She is only responsible for this debt because her former colleague stole her credit card and ran off with the money. Through a friend, Ji Yeon is introduced to Sung Yeol (Yoo Yun Suk from Doctor Romantic), the bastard son of a casino mogul. Sung Yeol offers Ji Yeon a way out of her misery. He makes a simple proposal: she should convince his father Jim Suk Koo (Lee Kyung Young from Incomplete Life) to marry her. The old man, nearing death and without any other family, will fall for Ji Yeon and include her in his will. The bastard son, naturally, is not part of that will. With this game, both he and Ji Yeon can be rich. With no other way out, Ji Yeon agrees. After learning everything about what the man does and does not like, Ji Yeon boards Jim Suk Koo’s yacht and begins weaving her web of deception. Between Jim Suk Koo’s senile manner, his loyal members on the yacht and her own feelings for Sung Yeol, Ji Yeon realizes that she is caught in a very dangerous game. As the girl soon learns, this is one proposal that is too perfect to be true. Also known as “Secret Temptation,” Perfect Proposal is based on 1956 French novel ""La Femme de paille"" by Catherine Arley. The story is adapted and directed by Yoon Jae Koo. Perfect Proposal was released on June 4, 2015.
