As expected, the promotions for Ji Chang Wook’s debut movie “Fabricated City” have ramped up greatly over the past few days, especially as to its Korean premiere and international release dates. Strap yourselves in… and here goes!
Firstly, the “Fabricated City” VIP Premiere showcase will be held at 8:00pm on
2 6 February 2017 at the CGV Wangsimni Theatres in Seoul. Ji Chang Wook, Shim Eun Kyung, Ahn Jae Hong and Director Park Kwang Hyun are scheduled to attend, along with other special guests.
Another “Star Talk Live” event is planned for 7 February at 7:30pm KST at the CGV Apgujeong featuring Ji Chang Wook and Director Park Kwang Hyun, which is expected to be broadcast via VApp.
Secondly, the official release date for “Fabricated City” in Korea is set for Thursday, 9 February 2017. *fingers crossed for a great turnout*
Thirdly, some North America premiere dates have been provided by CJ Entertainment USA. As CJEnt has done in the past with their Korean productions, a first-week premiere is usually scheduled in Southern California (at the Koreatown CGV Cinemas), and then slowly rolled out in the weeks after to other cities across the U.S. and Canada. Theaters currently on schedule with release dates are:
17 February 2017:
Los Angeles, CA / CGV Cinemas in Koreatown
Buena Park, CA / CGV Buena Park 8 Theatres
24 February 2017:
Dallas-Fort Worth, TX area / CineOasis in Carrollton, TX
Honolulu, HI area / Consolidated Theatres Pearlridge in Aiea, HI
Vancouver, British Columbia area / Cineplex Cinemas Coquitlam in Coquitlam, BC
Toronto, Ontario area / Cineplex Cinemas Empress Walk in North York, ON
*Note: These dates are tentatively scheduled, so it would be wise to consult your area’s theatre listings to ensure the proper dates and times for your local showings.
We have no information as to if or when other countries outside of Korea or cities in North America not mentioned herein will be added to CJ Entertainment’s release schedule. We cannot offer any opinions as to whether or not “your city” will be included in CJ Entertainment’s distribution plans. We’ll keep updating our post when additional areas where “Fabricated City” will be released come online.
