It's time for On-Point, where we speak to experts to delve deeper into key issues in the spotlight right now. South Korea's film industry's Q1 sales jumped 52-percent on year, but it still saw cinema chains in the red in the same quarter. However, with more easing of restrictions, many movie goers are flocking to theaters.
So what movies should we look out for with the weekend upon us?
We connect with Pierce Conran, a Seoul-based film critic. Thanks for joining us this morning.
So before we ask you for some recommendations, how much longer will it be until Korean production companies start releasing more films? It looks like there's still a limited number of domestic films currently being screened.
I know the new Doctor Strange movie is dominating box offices right now. But is there any Korean film that stands out for you?
< 2> or is the most recently released film here in Korea. The first film was such a smash hit. What are critics like yourself saying about sequel? Is this a must see movie?
Any movies that you're looking forward to this year?
Thanks for your insights this morning. Looking forward to watching some of these movies.
