[BBANGYA NEWS | Reporter Mo Mo] Na Moonhee, Lee Heejun, and Juyeon Oh! Moonhee's Chinese review passed...It's the first time since "Assassination" in 2015.

A Korean film will be released in Chinese theaters for the first time in six years. It is the first time since the THAAD (high altitude missile defense system) crisis and the Korean-Chinese colonial rule.

According to the Korean Embassy and others on the 2nd, the movie starring Na Moonhee and Lee Heejun, "Oh!" Moon Hee (Director Jeong Se-kyo) will be released at a Chinese theater on the 3rd after passing a recent deliberation by the National Film Bureau of China.

It is the first time that a Korean film has been released in a Chinese theater since 2015 when Jeon Ji-hyun, Lee Jung-jae, Ha Jung-woo, and director Choi Dong-hoon were released. This is because cultural exchanges between South Korea and China have virtually been suspended as the Korean Wave ban in China has led to a ban on the Korean Wave since the 2016 agreement between South Korea and the U.S. to deploy THAAD.

In response, not only the film industry but also the culture and art circles are paying attention to whether the release of the Korean film in China can serve as a signal of the lifting of the Korean-Chinese colonial rule.

In particular, many see it as a visible achievement because the Korean government has been demanding China to expand cultural exchanges in the field of cultural content such as games, movies, broadcasting, and arts to mark the 2021-2022 Korea-China Cultural Exchange Year and next year's 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Korea and China.

On the other hand, some say that China's actions may be based on the heightened diplomatic conflict with the U.S. Analysts say that the move is aimed at easing some relations between Korea and China by lifting some of the Korea-China decrees and ultimately preventing South Korea from participating in the U.S.

Meanwhile, "Oh! Moonhee" is a family drama genre film in the form of a rural comic investigative drama, which was released in Korea in September last year and attracted 350,000 viewers. It is imported by a Chinese film group, a state-owned Chinese film producer, China Film is in charge of distribution, and the number of movie theaters is undecided.
