Korean Cultural Services current free series Korean Movie Night Series 2: Korean Animation Explodes! concludes next Tuesday with a glitzy, gaudy, crowd-pleasing anime-style manhwa (Korean manga) adaptation. Based on the most popular manhwa of the late 90's, AUDITION is a teen-girl-ready romance about four dudes, all misfits, who form a rock band. All the main characters are already licensed products in Korea and this feature film version of their well-known story took 8 years to make.

(Obviously this is a totally different film from Takashi Miike's 1999 film of the same name in English. Miike's live-action Audition, based on a short novel by Ryu Murakami, is about a widower's search for a second wife and the terrifying consequences than ensue.)
