Amidst the anticipation for the release dates of the late Lee Sun Kyun’s two works, it has been suggested that they might be released this summer.

In December of last year, the late Lee Sun Kyun left behind two works, “Escape: Silence” directed by Kim Tae Gon and “Land of Happiness” directed by Choo Chang Min.

In March, the distributor of “Land of Happiness,” NEW, stated to media outlets, “We are considering a release within this year.”

Furthermore, CJ ENM, the distributor of “Escape: PROJECT SILENCE” stated, “The specific release date is under discussion,” and added that the possibility of a release within this year is undecided.

Amidst the unclear release dates, on the 1st of May, the Korea Ilbo reported that “Escape: PROJECT SILENCE” is scheduled for release in July, and “Land of Happiness” in August.

With the two films, which had uncertain release due to controversy surrounding the late actor, now becoming his posthumous works, there is a lot of interest as to whether these films will be able to meet the audience this summer.

“Land of Happiness” is a movie that depicts the intense story of a soldier caught up in a historical event and a lawyer who fights to save him, and “Escape: Silence” tells the story of people trapped in the collapsing Airport Bridge, shrouded in thick fog where nothing can be distinguished, struggling to survive from an unexpected threat.

“Escape: Silence” received attention as it was invited to the Cannes Film Festival’s Midnight Screening section (out of competition). The production cost is known to be about 18 billion won.

Approximately 9 billion won was invested in “Land of Happiness.”

Considering marketing costs and other expenses, a total of approximately 30 billion won [$21.7 million] has been invested in the two films.

At the time, a film industry official stated to media outlets that regardless of the release status, they would finish the work until the end.
