Korean Exhibitors To Receive Government Support As March Box Office Hits Record Low

 

By Nancy Tartaglione Deadline.com

 

Support measures for exhibitors in Korea were unveiled this week, which include seeing them exempted from paying into the national movie development fund as one of the world’s biggest markets suffers cinema closures and all-time box office lows amid the coronavirus crisis.

 

Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Hong Nam-ki announced the moves on Wednesday, according to local reports, saying the exemption will be applied retroactively from February, just after China pulled its Lunar New Year releases, which had a knock-on effect in the region.


Similar to France and other offshore markets, Korea enforces a tax on ticket sales that goes into a centralized fund. In Korea’s case, the 3% levy has annually averaged about $44M since 2016.


(There have been some conflicting reports as to whether the Korean government’s position on the tax is a deferment or an exemption, however, according to the Yonhap News Agency, which reported that response to the measures has been mixed.)

 

Admissions for March were 1.83M, the lowest ever since KOFIC began compiling box office data in 2004. Box office revenue in March 2020 was down 88% on 2019, at $12.4M. Korea in 2019 was the world’s 5th biggest market with a strong local business. This year so far it is in 8th place. Last week, CGV and Megabox began shuttering cinemas.

 

Overall, Korea is off 56% in local currency versus 2019 in the first three months of 2020, according to comScore. A recent S&P Global Market Intelligence and OPUSData report said that Asia Pacific box office revenues fell 85% year on year in January and February this year.

 

The Korea Herald reports that the government also said it would contribute to marketing costs for 20 films that had been set to release in the first quarter, but were delayed due to the coronavirus. It will also provide funds to help another 20 titles get back into production and will assist in vocational training for film industry workers who have lost their jobs. The newspaper further said shooting on disaster pic Emergency Declaration, starring Parasite’s Song Kang-ho and The Man Standing Next’s Lee Byung-hun, has been postponed, among other titles.

We may be seeing Im Siwan in an upcoming film!

 

On April 6, it was reported that Im Siwan is set to appear in the film “Declaration of Emergency” (literal title).

“Declaration of Emergency” will be a new film from “The Face Reader” and “The King” director Han Jae Rim, and is set to be based around an aviation disaster. If Im Siwan accepts the role, he will be joining Song Kang Ho and Lee Byung Hun, who have been confirmed for the cast.

Delayed film productions mess up top actors' schedules

As the South Korean film industry has been battered by the coronavirus pandemic for months, top actors' upcoming projects have been affected by delayed productions and release schedules.

 

More than 50 domestic and foreign films have put off or canceled their premieres slated for the first half of this year since the number of COVID-19 cases started to rise sharply in mid-February.

 

The number of daily moviegoers plunged to a record low of 15,000 this week, compared with some 320,000 admissions on weekdays in January and 200,000 in February.

 

South Korean filmmakers and studios have postponed their shooting plans, including overseas schedules, due to fears over the novel coronavirus and worldwide travel bans.

 

As a result, cast members have had to rearrange their schedules for upcoming movies and dramas.

 

Lee Byung-hun, one of the most acclaimed actors in the South Korean entertainment scene, has a tight schedule this year, as he is poised to star in a film and a TV drama.


He was cast for a lead role in the disaster action movie "Emergency Declaration," along with Song Kang-ho and Jeon Do-yeon. Directed by Han Jae-rim, the all-star cast film is in pre-production, but its shooting has been delayed for about a month.

 

It will likely affect his upcoming TV drama "Here," written by star screenwriter Noh Hee-kyung, slated for later this year. The drama, set to air on cable channel JTBC, marks Lee's return to the small screen since "Mr. Sunshine" (2018).

 

Hwang Jung-min, one of the highest-grossing actors in South Korea with many box office hits, including "Ode to My Father" (2014), was to appear in the film "Negotiations" with Hyun Bin and the movie "Kidnapping" with Ha Jung-woo before continuing with dramas, including "Suriname" and "Hush" in the latter half of the year.

 

But the producers of "Negotiations" decided to put off the film's overseas schedule in Jordan and to go on shooting in South Korea instead. The filming of "Kidnapping" has also been put on hold indefinitely.

 

Unless the production of these films finishes as scheduled within the first half of the year, Hwang's drama appearances may be affected.

 

Actor Song Joong-ki is also in a quandary over his next project.

 

He returned to South Korea from Columbia in late March after wrapping up the filming of the movie "Bogota" earlier than scheduled due to the spread of the coronavirus in the South American region.

 

The delayed schedule of "Bogota" will likely have an impact on Song's decision on whether to take on the biographical movie "The Season of Us." (Yonhap)

There’s an article on Cine21 with some details.

Song Kang-ho, Lee Byung-hun, Jeon Do-yeon, Kim Nam-gil's first aviation disaster movie 'Emergency Declaration'

 

Written by Kim Sunghoon | 2020-04-17
 

Five hints for 2020 Korean Cinema Big Project 'Emergency Declaration'

 

Song Kang-ho, Lee Byung-hun, Jeon Do-yeon and Kim Nam-gil. Actors who are hard to get together meet in one piece. As they’re known to appear in the new work <Emergency Declaration> by Han Jae-rim who directed <The Face Reader> (2013) and <The King> (2016), <Emergency Declaration> attracted attention both inside and outside the film industry even before the filming began. This work is known only as an "air disaster film". If it is a disaster film made by director Han Jae-rim, who is sensitive to political and social sensibility, it is unlikely that the disaster will be exhibited. The solo interview of director Han Jae-rim in <Cine21> 1252 gave some clues on <Emergency Declaration>. For more information on the <Emergency Declaration>, see <Cine 21> 1252, Cine interview 'Aeronautical Disaster Movie is Coming'.

Hint 1. This is a disaster movie where a crisis situation occurs on an airplane.

In the interview, director Han Jae-rim talked about the plot of the film. He explained “If you talk in details even before the filming begins, the audience may develop prejudice, which may make it difficult for them to fully enjoy the movie”. The details cannot be revealed yet, but <Emergency Declaration> is a disaster on and off the plane. This is a story about a crisis in a plane in the sky, and people on a plane trying to overcome the crisis when they cannot go outside. “Everyone is in a disaster,” said director Han Jae-rim. Some are watching the disaster. "The film also asks how to deal with disasters and how to accept them."

Hint 2. Song Kang-ho leads the center of the play.

<Emergency Declaration> seems to be more of a group play where the leading actors appear together than a form where one or two leads the narratives from beginning to the end. Director Han Jae-rim, without denying this, hinted that "the role that leads the play in the center of the narrative is the character played by Song Kang-ho." This is their third collaboration following <The Show Must Go on> (2006) and <The Face Reader> (2013). On the other hand, Lee Byung-hun, Jeon Do-yeon, and Kim Nam-gil are faces that had never been seen in previous works of director HanJae-rim. Regarding the characters being played by the actors, diector Han Jae-rim said "I can't tell you the details yet, but it will be fun to see new aspects of the actors."

Hint 3. Director of photography Lee Mo-gae and art director Lee Mok-won joined Han Jae-rim’s new division.

The best staff from Chungmuro joined to visually show the 'aviation disaster': Director of photography Lee Mo-gae of <I Saw the Devil> (2010) <Asura> (2016) < Battleship Island> (2017) <Inrang> (2018) and art director Lee Mok-won of <Train to Busan> (2016), <Along with God> series, etc. This is the first time that they work with director Han Jae-rim.

Hint 4. A large airplane appears. 

<Emergency Declaration> is a story that takes place on a large airplane like Boeing 777. The airplane featured in <Emergency Declaration> is from a Hollywood company that sets a real airplane as a filming location and assembles it into a set.  Lee Cheol-ha‘s new film, <Okay Madame> which has not been released, was also conducted with this company. Currently, art director Lee Mok-won is working on art that fits airplanes and figures in the movie in the space where real airplanes are assembled.

Hint 5. Set shooting amount reaches 70%. 

Originally, it was scheduled to start in late March, but the crank-in was delayed dued to Corona 19.  Like other Korean films that are currently being filmed, <Emergency Declaration> is also planned to take prevention and safety measures. Director Han Jae-rim said, “Fortunately, <Emergency Declaration> has 70% of shootings on the set, so it is unlikely that there will be any problems if the crew is careful about the risk of infection.

[KOFIC] HAN Jae-rim (director)
HAN Jae-rim, born in 1975, graduated in 1998 from the Seoul Institute of the Arts before entering the Korean film industry as a screenwriter and first assistant director on <Natural City> (2003). After he and GO Yoon-hee won second place in a screenwriting contest held by KOFIC, he developed their project further and made it his debut feature, <Rules of Dating> (2005). A disturbing anti-romantic comedy, the film caused quite a stir upon its release, what with its sexually explicit language and its frank look at the dynamics in a relationship, and proved to be a surprising sleeper hit in Korea. This allowed PARK Hae-il to shake off his image of a chaste boy, and HAN to make a name in the film industry, winning several awards including Best New Director at the Grand Bell Awards and Best Screenplay at the Blue Dragon Film Awards. However, <Rules of Dating> also sparked controversy in Korea and abroad due to the positive depiction of what amounts to sexual harassment and abuse, leaving many critics and moviegoers baffled. Having come to the foreground as one of the most promising new directors, his next work <The Show Must Go On> (2006) lived up to the expectations. Starring SONG Kang-ho, the film was invited to the Zabaltegi Pearls section of the San Sebastián International Film Festival and picked up Best Film at the Blue Dragon Film Awards and the Korean Association of Film Critics’ Awards. Having failed to secure financing for his superhero film project, he returned to the big screen as one of the executive producer on ROH Deok’s break-up comedy <Very Ordinary Couple> (2012). HAN finally jumped back into the director’s chair with the period drama film <The Face Reader> (2013). Starring SONG Kang-ho, it easily outweighed the competition as it accumulated a whopping 9.1 million admissions at the local box office, and nabbed several awards, including Best Film and Best Director at the 50th Grand Bell Film Awards. Once he established his own production company Woojoo Film, he teamed up again with ROH to produce her thriller <The Exclusive : Beat the Devil’s Tattoo> (2015), before directing <The King> (2016), a crime drama led by ZO In-sung and JUNG Woo-sung.
 

[KOFIC] Lee Mo-gae (director of photography) 

Born in 1972, LEE Mo-gae studied photography at Chung-Ang University and went on with a Master’s degree in film from the Korea National University of Arts. He started out as a member of the film crews of famous independent movies such as LEE Chang-dong’s <A Peppermint Candy> (2000) and HONG Sang-soo’s <Virgin Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors> (2000), but was also cutting his teeth in cinematography with several short films, until KIM Jee-woon put him in charge of directing the photography of his horror film <A Tale Of Two Sisters> (2003). LEE’s talent was immediately acknowledged by the Korean Association of Film Critics with a Best Cinematography Award. He has since remained a frequent collaborator of KIM Jee-woon, with which he has signed some of his most remarkable works. <The Good, The Bad, And The Weird> (2008) earned him many awards in Korea and abroad, while <I Saw The Devil> (2010) was lauded for its striking images but also sparked a heated debate among critics and the audience over the aestheticization of violence. Over the time, he has become one of the most sought after cinematographers for Korean blockbusters, having contributed to the spectacular images seen in <Secret Reunion> (2010), <My Way> (2011), <The Tiger> (2015) and <The Battleship Island> (2017). He has most recently been praised for his depiction of a corrupted city in <Asura : The City of Madness> and received Best Cinematography from the Blue Dragon Awards.

The highly confidential Korean aviation disaster movie “Emergency Declaration”  is publicised for the first time.  (a translation) 

 

asas.jpg

 

Director Han Jae Rim (HJR) is joining hands with  Song Kang Ho, Lee Byung Hun, Jeon Do Yeon, and Kim Nam Gil, an unimaginable film lineup becomes a reality. 

 

The director of “The Face Reader," “The King” Han Jae Rim’s new film, “Emergency Declaration” has conducted a highly airtight security on the film.  Any story is unpredictable aside from “an aviation disaster movie”. The mysterious layer of this film became a hot topic inside and outside the film industry after the news that many leading actors such as Song Kang Ho, Lee Byung Hun, Jeon Do Yeon, Kim Nam Gil, and Im Si Wan  joined. The following interview can be a clue to understanding what kind of disaster movie "Emergency Declaration" is all about.


Q.  When was shooting supposed to start originally? 

HJR:  At the end of March. The "Emergency Declaration" is an aviation film, but the aircraft package was not shipped from the US  due to the Coronavirus epidemic.   There is a company in Hollywood that specialises in assembling and arranging the physical aircraft, and we cooperated with that company.  As the epidermic has prolonged,   the US prohibits crowd gathering.  Consequently, some of the containers with aircraft packages have not yet been shipped to South Korea.   The British company that operates the aircraft for action shooting has completed its preparation but was unable to come to South Korea due to the outbreak. Europeans are completely unable to understand the situation of South Korea, where the world's film industry is suspended, and they still insist on filming.  So I had to discontinue my cooperation with that company and choose a South Korean company to make preparations again. Such events occur in succession, affecting the start-up time. 

 

Q.  If you think positively, is this not the time to reorganise?

HJR:  If you make sure you have a good preparation, shooting will be much smoother.  There are not many things that can be tried in the coronavirus epidemic environment.  The United States and Great Britain did not expect the outbreak to last so long when the number of confirmed patients was small. For this reason, we had to go through many twists and turns when working with US and British companies.

 

Q:  “Emergency Declaration” only tells everyone that it is an aviation disaster
       movie.  In fact,  "Only Song Kang Ho and Lee Byung Hun have read the
       script?”.  What is the reason for keeping information on the movie so
       secretive? 

HJR:  Disclosing information on the movie before its release may create misunderstanding for the fans.  Knowing the plot may reduce the emotions associated with watching the movie.   I tormented over maximising the interest of the movie.  With a lot of invested budget and a lot of preparation, and the fact that the movie cannot be released right after shooting is finished, I worked hard on security . 

 

Q.  I heard this project was proposed to you a long time ago.

HJR:  A dozen years ago, this is one of the projects that CJ Investment Team Leader H. S. Lee, showed me. The story is well-formed, and it would be interesting to just unravel the reasons behind it.  But for various reasons, I did not take up the project.  Afterwards, I shot  “The Face Reader”.  I decided to pick up the project again, but I did not do so.  After my last film, Y. J.  Fang  then Team Leader of CJ Investment, asked me if I wanted to come back to this project and bought the movie-based copyright at the same time. He put it aside for two years and the script was written last year. 

 

Q: When you mention disasters in Korean society, you will immediately think
     of the sinking of the Sewol ferry and current Coronavirus epidemic.  What
     is the opportunity to make a disaster movie?

HJR:  There will be no specific incidents in the movie.  Recently, Korean society has suffered a large or small disaster. The scenario I envisioned when I wrote the script was a bit unpleasant when it happened exactly in reality.  Because it is an aviation disaster movie, you can expect the interest brought by this theme.  But more importantly, how do people act in the face of disaster? How do fans accept their actions? In this regard, "Emergency Declaration”  is not simply a display of disasters, nor is it just a story of disasters.

 

Q: A major or minor disaster in Korean society has become an opportunity for you to make this movie?

HJR: This is very important, there are many disasters in modern Korea. Although the characters, types and scale of the disasters vary, but is not there always the same kind of action that people take to overcome the crisis? From this point of view, this movie is not simply a subject of consumer disaster, it includes social meaning.  In addition, I also want to convey the message "We can overcome the disaster" in the film.

 

Q:  Do you like the theme of disaster?

HJR:  Directors should all like a variety of themes.  Compared to disasters, "Emergency Declaration" mainly depicts the stories of people who have suffered disasters.

 

Q:  The title will be reminiscent of "Emergency Landing" (1954)

HJR: This is like asking the reference of the movie. If you want to ask yourself what is the attitude of the movie? I would like to answer that this is a movie with similarities to Bong Joon Ho’s “The Host”. Is it not the occurrence of monsters in the Han River a metaphor and symbol of Korean society? After the monster appeared, the cause of death of the “Gang Du " family and the current status of Korean society surfaced. The same is true of the “Emergency Declaration," which describes  the current state of Korean society surrounding disasters.

 

Q:  Actors Song Kang Ho, Lee Byung Hun, Jeon Do Yeon and Kim Nam Gil
      acting  together became the talk of the movie industry before filming.  
      From the point of view of the gathering of these actors, it seems closer to
      group play than this form of telling the story of one or two people from
      beginning to end.

HJR:   The character that led the plot development at the story center is Song Kang Ho sunbae.   Many people, including him, experienced disasters and overcame crises. People in disaster become weak and afraid, and the movie will show what they will do in that situation.  (Unlike the past in which the Korean government has not done its duty properly), now the government is doing a great job of coping with the new Coronavirus epidemic, the public should be proud of it.  So the movie also reflects the changes of this era.

 

Q: This is the third collaboration with Song Kang Ho  after “The Show Must
     Go On” and “The Face Reader”. 

HJR: He showed a variety of appearances in each of his films. Overall, he is very enthusiastic and explosive. However, in "Emergency Declaration", Song Kang Ho sunbae will show a different appearance from his previous works. He plays an elderly character who takes care of his own body, that is to say, as a character with a  shrunken role. Song Kang Ho sunbae and Lee Byung Hun sunbae are actors known by Hollywood staff to work well together.  They are both burdened and blessed.

 

Q: First-ever collaboration with Lee Byung Hun, Jeon Do Yeon and Kim Nam
     Gil. 

HJR:   Although it is not yet possible to reveal the roles carefully, the film has a delightful way of showing the fresh faces of the actors.  This movie is not a story showing how disaster conditions maximise the pleasure of disaster subjects, but a story that solves problems realistically.  Using the spy theme as a metaphor, it is closer to the reality-oriented “Bourne”  film series  rather than the "007 series" that puts the quantity offensive up front.

 

Q. The director of photography Lee Mo Gae and I were distressed about the
      visual presentation.    

HJR:  The filming work is closely connected with the work of visual special effects (VFX), so it needs to be thoroughly prepared. The story is better suited to express strong feelings than to reveal the image based on the theme, so film is more suitable than digital . For the unique taste in the aircraft, in order to show it through the photo, I intend to use 16mm film to take out the texture. But the film processing  plant no longer exists, so I gave up the idea of using film in ”Emergency Declaration” 

 

Q.  The aircraft space is small, and the angle and range of camera movement
      can also be limited.

HJR:   So I told Director Lee Mo Gae to do his best to enjoy and express in a limited space.

 

Q.  The aircraft has a large shape

 

HJR:  This is a story that happened on a large aircraft similar to Boeing 777. Art Director MW Lee who participated in “Train to Busan”Along with the Gods 2," is currently working on art in the airplane. The actual space needed to assemble an airplane needs to be in line with the aircraft and characters in the movie.

 

Q:  When does the shooting start?

HJR:   The goal is to start shooting in May at the latest. There are still a few aircraft packages that have not been received, and I plan to start filming when they arrive.   Just like the Korean movies being filmed now, we will pay attention to epidemic prevention when shooting. Fortunately, the 70% of "Emergency Declaration" will be shot in the studio.  As long as the cast members pay attention to the risk of infection, there should not be any major problems.

Emergency Declaration is an aviation disaster film about a plane that declared an emergency landing amid an unprecedented disaster.

 

Emergency Declaration received favorable responses from movie fans since the early preparation stage with the fact that it is the first aviation disaster film being produced in Korea. Now, with the jaw-dropping cast that includes multiple top stars, the movie is once again making headlines.

 

Song Kang Ho, who gained much attention with Parasite, plays the role of a detective chasing after an unprecedented aviation disaster. Lee Byung Hun plays a father who got on a plane for his daughter despite his phobia. Jeon Do Yeon is expected to make yet another transformation into a minister, who is facing an emergency. Kim Nam Gil plays the flight’s first officer.

 

Lim Si Wan will play the role of a passenger who boarded the plane alone, whereas Kim So Jin will take on the role of a flight attendant. Park Hae Joon, who is currently starring in the hottest drama The World of the Married, will become the head of the Crisis Management Center at the Blue House, striving to resolve the unprecedented emergency.

 

Emergency Declaration will be directed by Han Jae Rim, who has attracted the audience with stylish directing and solid stories through Rules Of Dating (2005), The Show Must Go On (2007), The Face Reader (2013), and The King (2017)

 

The “emergency declaration” is an aviation term meaning a state of emergency if and when planes are no longer able to operate normally by the captain’s judgment in the midst of disaster. The film is scheduled to start filming in May.

A much-hyped aviation disaster film has confirmed its full cast lineup, featuring some of the biggest names in Korean cinema today.

Next Entertainment World, the distributor of “Emergency Declaration,” announced the full cast of actors Tuesday and said shooting is to begin this month. 

The blockbuster is helmed by director Han Jae-rim of “The Show Must Go On” (2007) and “The Face Reader” (2013).

Actors Song Kang-ho of this year’s top Oscar winner “Parasite” and Lee Byung-hun will be joined by Cannes-winning actress Jeon Do-yeon. Song has been cast in the role of a detective investigating a catastrophic plane disaster, while Lee will play a father with a fear of flying trying to protect his daughter amid the chaos. Jeon, known for her lead roles in drama and romance films, will play the role of a government official in charge of managing the crisis.

Actor Kim Nam-gil, who recently appeared in horror flick “The Closet,” will play another key character, the first officer of the aircraft in trouble. Kim will be joined by singer and actor Im Si-wan, who rose to the limelight in tvN series “Misaeng” (2014), and Park Hae-jun, currently starring in JTBC’s “The World of the Married.”

Actress Kim So-jin of Han’s previous film “The King” is also among the cast. Kim, who received critical acclaim for her part in the 2017 film, also starred in “The Man Standing Next,” released in January. 

The title of “Emergency Declaration” comes from the aviation term used to declare an unplanned landing under abnormal circumstances. The first Korean air-disaster flick will be packed with suspenseful action scenes as the characters struggle to survive inside the falling plane, according to NEW.

KOFIC ensures clean cinemas, filming locations

Spoiler

 

By Choi Ji-won | May 14, 2020 | http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20200514000794


The Korean government agency for the film industry sought to assure the public of safety inside cinemas and at filming locations, and promised measures to support the industry suffering from the prolonged spread of the novel coronavirus outbreak.

 

The Korean Film Council on Wednesday said it is operating a special safety management committee of health experts and members of the film industry to draw up new guidelines to be applied at the film scene in accordance with the government’s eased social distancing regulations last week.

 

“The key (in prevention) is for the healthy cinemagoers to protect themselves from the source of infection, and to prepare a responsive system to prevent a mass infection case where an infected person appears in the theaters,” Kim Hyae-joon, head of KOFIC’s COVID-19 task force and a member of the committee, said during a press conference Wednesday. 

 

Experts from the committee stressed that as long as uninfected people have their masks on at all times, stay distanced from others when seated and do not eat or drink inside cinemas, then theaters will be safe from infection. 

 

“Although the heating and air-conditioning systems vary according to each cinema, theaters themselves are mostly spacious, so there is less chance that people will be infected through close contact,” said Tak Sang-woo, a committee member and a research associate professor at the Institute of Health and Environment at Seoul National University.

 

Cinema operators must make sure that people maintain distance from each other while seated in the cinemas and ventilate the space and sanitize seats in between every screening session. Cinemas that have been maintained according to the guidelines will be given a “Clean Zone” mark by the committee starting this week. 
 

The committee further stated that films shooting both indoors and outdoors could proceed if participants strictly followed rules. The studios must have a supervisor overseeing the health of the staff and all participants will be provided with a self-check health sheet. Those who are quarantined after showing symptoms will be given suspension allowance and KOFIC plans to request public locations, currently reluctant toward shooting, to cooperate for those studios complying to the safety measures.

 

Meanwhile, KOFIC’s reassurance comes as the film industry, one of the hardest-hit industries by the COVID-19 outbreak, faces another wave of depression following the recent emergence of a cluster of infections from Itaewon clubs and bars.

Korea Film Council vows to ensure safe environment for film industry

 

May 13, 2020 | http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20200513000930

 

South Korea's film industry governing body said Wednesday it will do its best to keep local theaters and filming sites safe from exposure to the novel coronavirus.

 

The Korean Film Council said it has set up a special safety management committee, consisting of health experts and film employees, to oversee the implementation of quarantine rules in accordance with eased social distancing in the cinematic scene.

 

"Our goal is to help healthy people protect themselves from possible virus infection in theaters and to establish a responsive system to prevent mass infection if a potential patient comes to the cinema," said Kim Hyae-joon from the nine-member KOFIC committee.

 

According to basic precautionary guidelines, moviegoers should go through temperature checks at entrances, have seats at an adequate distance from one another and wear face masks.

 

Cinema operators have to ventilate and disinfect the space after every movie screening and ensure that people maintain a safe distance when entering and exiting theaters. Their employees are also required to comply with quarantine rules, such as taking days off if they have a fever or cough and washing their hands frequently.

 

At the same time, the committee has come up with similar preventive measures to protect film crews and actors at filming locations. For instance, film studios have to prepare temperature screening equipment and review their measures if one of their employees show coronavirus-related symptoms.

 

The committee said outdoor shooting schedules will be as safe as professional sports like baseball and football, which kicked off without spectators last week, if all participants comply with the rules.

 

The film industry is one of the worst-hit sectors amid the coronavirus pandemic in South Korea, as people have been asked to stay home and avoid mass gatherings.

 

The monthly number of viewers hit 972,000 for April, marking the first time the figure fell below the 1-million threshold since box office data was first compiled in 2004.

 

The South Korean government has planned to inject 17 billion won ($13.8 million) into the film industry as part of emergency plans to rescue the sector.

 

The country relaxed intensive social distancing last week, as the country's daily new COVID-19 cases had remained around 10 for weeks. But recent cluster infections related to clubs in Seoul have heightened vigilance against the virus. (Yonhap)
