Taking off! ‘The Moon’ coming to Philippines cinemas on August 16

Director Kim Yong-hwa, known for the groundbreaking ‘Along with the Gods’ series, now turns his gaze to space. Taking the viewers on a space adventure, ‘The Moon’ opens in Philippine cinemas on August 16.

Watch the trailer here:

Director Yong-hwa references Danuri-ho, South Korea’s first spacecraft which recently had its third successful launch, as a reason why ‘The Moon’ is special, “it presents a story that is realistically possible under the technological prowess of Korea.”

‘The Moon’ is an intense survival drama built on thorough scientific verification and consultation. Astronaut Sun-woo (Doh Kyung-soo) got stranded in space after an unfortunate accident. It is up to former flight director Jae-gook (Sul Kyung-gu) to rescue him. Their solidarity surpasses the 384,000 kilometers between the Moon and Earth.

“The spectacle of the vast universe is intertwined with the story of humanity,” says Sul Kyung-gu of the appeal of the film for him. “It is a movie that gives hope, courage, and comfort,” adds Doh Kyung-soo.
