Nov 20,2018
Drama film “Default” has been sold to 17 regions, including the United States and Japan, ahead of its premiere in Korea scheduled for next week, the film’s local investor-distributor said Monday.

The movie will make its North American debut on Nov. 30 in the United States, two days after it opens in Korea, and will debut in Singapore, Taiwan and Indonesia in mid-December.

It will also be released in Hong Kong and Macao in January and in Japan in the second half of next year, CJ Entertainment said.

Directed by Choi Kook-hee, the film takes a look back at a difficult time for South Korea when the country was on the verge of bankruptcy during the 1997 Asian financial crisis. It stars Kim Hye-soo, Cho Woo-jin, Yoo Ah-in and Huh Joon-ho.

French actor Vincent Cassel plays the role of the managing director of the International Monetary Fund.
