South Korean creature feature Monstrum has snagged a rare distribution deal in China after years of Korean entertainment being banned in China, Variety reports.
.Directed by Huh Jong-ho, Monstrum is said to be based on genuine historical records made during the Joseon Dynasty of a mysterious monster creature.
“It’s the 22nd year of Jungjong. The plague has taken over Joseon, and fear runs rampant in the streets. When rumors of a vicious beast roaming Mount Inwangsan–called “Monstrum” by terrified masses–begin to spread, fear turns into panic. In order to quell the rising panic, Jungjong brings back his most trusted general Yoon-gyeom from retirement. Joined by his daughter Myeong, his right-hand man Seong-han, and royal court officer Heo, Yoon-gyeom sets out to find the mysterious creature.”
The Chinese ban on Korean films, series, and other forms of entertainment came as a response from China’s disapproval of  South Korea allowing the US to put its THAAD missile defense systems in the South Korean territory.
Kim Myung-MimPark Hee-soonChoi Woo-sik, Kim In-Kwon, Kim Myung-Min, and Lee Geung-young star in Monstrum opening in South Korea theaters on September 12, 2018. Hopefully, an international release will soon follow. Check out the trailer that is filled with action and a giant, fearsome creature.
