Korean flicks in Malaysia

This is a rant, so you can skip this entry and move on to other more informative Korean stuff.

A friend of mine, who is in the local movie-distributing industry, once told me that Korean movies usually flop in Malaysia.

Unless it’s a mega smash hit like Taegukgi (태극기), The Host (괴물) or 200 Pounds Beauty (미녀는 괴로워), the film won’t be picked up by local distributors. Thus for all Rain fans, now you know why I’m a Cyborg, but That’s OK (싸이보그지만 괜찮아) didn’t make it to our shores.

Nonetheless, the VCDs/DVDs are still imported so you can actually watch the films but on the small screen.
