Let Me Out is a Korean zombie coming-of-age melodrama that will be playing in four U.S. cities simultaneously for one night only on Wednesday, September 25th at 7:30 pm. It marks the first lead role in a motion picture of actor Hyun-Sang Kwon, son of Korean director Im Kwon Taek.
Synopsis: This zombie melodrama is a Mu-Young (Hyun-Sang Kwon) film school opus. An eternal senior, he knows everything about cinema but nothing about actual film-making. Critical of everyone else, he heckles the famous indie director Ik-June Yang at a campus screening and somehow receives film funding. His dream of working with his love-interest Ah-Young becomes a nightmare. Everything that can go wrong does. Barely surviving a disastrous shoot, Mu-Young learns making a movie is like love, you can’t do it alone.
Let Me Out is a tribute to guerrilla, indie, amateur, low-budget cineastes struggling to create. It is hope. Let Me Out opened in Korea on August 15, 2013 and is being distributed through Baekdu Daegan Film Company in approximately 15 theaters including Art House Momo (Baekdu’s Art House theaters), CGV Movie Collage (the Art House division of CJ Entertainment), and Artplus Cinema Network in various cities throughout Korea, including Seoul. The film had its red carpet US Premiere at the Downtown Independent Theater in LA on August 16, 2013 to a sold out audience with director Jae Soh and Hyun-Sang Kwon, the film’s lead actor, attending from Korea. Let Me Out is the first Korean independent film released back to back in both Korea and the U.S. and is distributed in the U.S. by Funimation Entertainment, a Group 1200 Media company, based in Flower Mound, TX.
