Hisaishi will put music to Korean supermovie of the year

Japanese composer Joe Hisaishi is to write a score for Welcome to Dongmakgol, a Korean superproduction about one of the most famous episodes during the war that took place in that country half a century ago. It all happened in the village of Dongmakgol, where the three different armies involved in that war once met together.

The film will include extraordinary special effects and will open on August in South Korea. It's said to be one of the most commercial hits of the year. The acting crew will feature Sin Ha-gyoon (Save the Green Planet! and Simpathy for Mr. Vengeance), Jeong Yae Yeong (Silmido) and Kang Hye Jeong (the girl of Oldboy). The film has been shot by a director very trained in the world of adds and publicity, Park Gwang-hyeon, who wanted Hisaishi to be involved in his work from the beginning.
