I found an interesting article about Korean films and the international market on twitchfilm.net.

http://www.twitchfilm.net/archives/008610.html

While it goes over a brief history of US releases of Korean movies (mainly Tae Guk Gi and what it might mean for The Host), some of this will apply to King and the Clown and in fact any Korean movie looking to distribution in the US market.

Hi Lady Wakasa,

Interesting read...hopefully K&C distributor will take note of the lesson learned on Tae Guk Gi to their advantage.

In addition, may this fansite help to fill-in any missing gaps that will increase awareness of this beautifully inspiring film and prompt people to make the trip to the cinema when it is released.

Extract on Article on Oscar List down to nine...

What a pity King and the Clown is not on the list. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
Would it makes a difference if K&C has a US Distributor? Just wondering...

For the first time ever, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences on Tuesday unveiled a shortlist of nominees for foreign-language Oscar -- with the announcement and the results reflecting recent rule changes. The nine pics are "Days of Glory" (Algeria), "Water" (Canada), "After the Wedding" (Denmark), "Avenue Montaigne" (France), "The Lives of Others" (Germany), "Pan's Labyrinth" (Mexico), "Black Book" (The Netherlands), "Volver" (Spain) and "Vitus" (Switzerland).

All have U.S. distribution, in contrast with two years ago, when the majority of the five contenders lacked domestic distribution from a major company.

Sony Classics has four of the nine: "The Lives of Others," "Black Book," "Volver" and "Vitus." Distribs with one apiece are Fox Searchlight ("Water"), IFC ("Wedding"), Picturehouse ("Labyrinth"), ThinkFilm
("Montaigne") and the Weinstein Co. ("Days of Glory").

Monday's Golden Globe winner as foreign-language film, "Letters From Iwo Jima," can't be nominated for the foreign Oscar: As a U.S. production, it's ineligible, as is "Apocalypto ."
