South Korean coming-of-age comedy TWENTY coming to North American theaters on April 17th
Fresh off a successful opening weekend in South Korea, Twenty, a coming-of-age comedy, released by CJ Entertainment in the U.S., will premiere in North American theaters on April 17, 2015. This highly anticipated film directed by LEE Byeong-heon, is a snapshot of what life is like to be twenty and living in Seoul right now. This youthful and witty story is brought to life by a stellar cast including, KIM Woo-bin (The Con Artist), KANG Ha-neul (Empire of Lust), and Korean Pop band, 2PM’s LEE Jun-ho.
Twenty is an age when no drunken mistake or heartbreak is insurmountable, and life is full of endless possibilities. Living off his parents and with seemingly no direction, twenty year-old Chi-ho (KIM Woo-bin) only thinks about women. His two closest friends are a virginal, slightly neurotic nerd, Kyeong-jae (KANG Ha-neul), and a hard-working, aspiring cartoonist, Dong-woo (LEE Jun-ho). At the awkward and embarrassing age of twenty, all three are forced to become adults faster than they planned.
The film was written and directed by LEE Byeong-heon, who built his career as a scriptwriter for blockbusters like Love Forecast and Tazza: The Hidden Card, as well as the breakout hit Sunny. With Twenty, he makes his mainstream directorial debut.
Twenty is scheduled to open in select theaters April 17, 2015 in several U.S. and Canadian cities including New York, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Toronto. For show times and ticket information, visit the film's official website at CJ Entertainment.
