Director Kim Ki-duk from movie "Poongsan" spoke about his disappointment in the distribution methods of the movie "The Front Line".

Kim backhandedly criticized the screening ways of "The Front Line" by director Jang Hoon as he mentioned the monopoly problems with "Transformers 3" through a a statement on the 14th. He had also criticized Jang who was his assistant director, through "ARIRANG - Movie" at the Cannes International Film Festival in May.

In the statement Kim said, "It is shocking how an imported movie can be put up in 60% of the country's cinemas. I didn't think Korean movies could do that but not only does a war movie pull its release date from the 21st to the 20th but it will be played two times in over 180 cinemas. Doesn't it feel pity for the small scale movies like "Poongsan" that are barely surviving through the word of mouth?"

Kim said, "I feel bad for those who worked hard for the movie but I think this way of distribution is wrong. What does it mean for movies that cost millions and have good twists? I can't help but be disappointed as I thought the image of a director will go bad due to unnecessary misunderstandings so I rejected several distributors and postponed the release of "ARIRANG - Movie" when it was meant to be in July".

He continued, "I truly congratulate the release of Jang Hoon's movie and I wish as much as he is capable of, to be a little fair and show his movies. Another thing I would like to ask of Jang Hoon is, just like I gave a chance to you to become a director and producer, bring up the 'wandering' breakthrough members and lead them instead of me and make them a chance with your abilities". He also requested the support of low-budget films and the discovery of new directors as well as not using up too many cinemas so that movies like "Poongsan" can survive.

Meanwhile, Kim postponed the release of his movie "ARIRANG - Movie" due to unnecessary misunderstandings when it was showed at the Cannes Movie Festival and said, "I thank all those who have seen "Poongsan" and I will continue to make movies from passion and meaning instead of money".
