[Photo provided to China Daily]Chinas screens have been flooded by productions on the war against Japanese invaders in recent months. Many viewers complain such films can become stereotyped, and they will feel delighted to see an unlikely epic from neighboring South Korea.Assassination, the highest-grossing movie so far in the South Korean market this year, will be released across the Chinese mainlands theaters on Sept 17, about two months later than its homeland premiere. The action thriller will set a record on becoming the fastest South Korean title to reach the Chinese market.Set in 1933, during Japans 1910-45 colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula, the tale fictionalizes three talented prisoners dispatched by the exiled provisional Korean government to assassinate a Japanese commander and a traitorous Korean tycoon.High praise prevailed after sneak previews on Monday. Viewers say its refreshing to see a wartime title, which are usually serious in China, produced like a Hollywood action thriller, thanks to many plot twists and occasional humorous lines to ease the tension in several crucial scenes.Previous Page1 2 3 4 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 3 4 Next Page8.03KRelated ArticlesLittle Prince to hit theaters on Oct 16French director Tavernier honored with lifetime achievement award in VeniceChinese film Jia premieres at Venice Film FestivalVenice Intl Film Festival showcasing travails of childrenItalys director Tornatore interested in collaboration with Chinese cinemaTagsAssassination film South KoreanPhotoBeijings Confucian Temple holds ceremony for accepting studentsDunhuang heritage still alive in new ageStills of Yunge from the DesertShaanxi traditional cultural week wows BerlinWorlds longest 3D painting lightens up the street in BeijingStarry Night: Van Gogh in BeijingArtFilmCelebrityFashionFoodTravelStarry Night: Van Gogh in BeijingSee how magical paper folding can beChinese photos explore urbanization in German showShow features close-up look at Ming chairsChinese art show: A brush with humanityRenowned scroll painting unrolled at the Palace MuseumVan Gogh Alive brightens up BeijingLectures on Peking Opera hit Lincoln Center during Zhang Huoding NYC performancesArtist creates sand sculpture depicting drowned Syrian boyBringing the background forwardChristies gallery presents photo show on womenMan in the mirrorStills of Yunge from the DesertHous mainland movie debut splits viewersNew movie celebrates a Chinese cultural iconTeen director wins kudos for new filmSouth Korean wartime epic to hit Chinese cinemasLittle Prince to hit theaters on Oct 16French director Tavernier honored with lifetime achievement award in VeniceChinese film Jia premieres at Venice Film FestivalRichie Jen on directing his first film All You Need is LoveMission Impossible 5 releases in ShanghaiVenice Intl Film Festival showcasing travails of childrenItalys director Tornatore interested in collaboration with Chinese cinemaXu Lu poses for fashion magazineFan Bingbing poses for fashion magazineActor Gao Zheng dies at 93Stars walk the red carpet at the 72nd Venice Film FestivalStar Tracks in SeptemberSwift leads winners but West, Cyrus rule MTV Video Music AwardsChinese actress Yi Yizi pose for photosForbes unveils highest paid actresses of 2015Ma Yili, Zhu Yawens new fashion shotsGao Yuanyuan at commercial activity in ShanghaiJon Bon Jovi sings in Mandarin for Chinese Valentines DayActress Zhang Xinyi poses in New YorkGetting ready to strike a poseChu Yan: Reviver of traditional Chinese clothesFloral hair decoration hits Suzhou streetUsing waste in good tasteEd Sheeran and Taylor Swift enter Guinness World RecordsMeet Dai Dali, the pole-dancing pensionerNew deal looks to halt glitches in cinemasCambridge graduate crowned Miss Hong Kong 2015Models heat up Xinjiang desert with Atlas silkPrints and boots with tassels are likely fall trendsPollution damages skin, study findsAnalog fans turn back digital clockMissing links?A mania for meatBibigo brings taste of Korea to ShanghaiW Hotels offers stylish way for a healthier stayLunar loveliesBack to basicsTCM infused with autumn dryness treatmentsDense pastries offer holidaymakers a bite of the moonEat BeatPoet takes his artful approach to food onlineWhos afraid of chicken feet?Baker brings tastes of France to capital areaTop 10 most beautiful terraces in ChinaMountain paradiseGlimpses of Lhasas holiday seasonTop 10 destinations for female travelersTop 10 seldom-seen views around the worldQuanzhou charmsYunnan, a travel heavenCity of SpringsMorning sun showers snow-covered Great WallMixing old with new in central Vietnam2013 Top 10 Tourism Destinations Editors PicksArtist in Gansu creates vivid clay figurinesXinjiang keeps the traditional way of making Atlas silkHot wordsPalace MuseumEasy TalkChinese Valentines DayGaokaoStart of AutumnCulture InsiderTop 10sTeaDragon Boat FestivalChinese at CannesVideoAmericans perspective on China and JapanEasy Talk Special: Legend of a RabbitMonkey King – Box office heroColumnsRaymond Zhou:X-Ray
