Netflix will unveil director Park Hoon Jung’s new film Night in Paradise, which captivated the 77th Venice International Film Festival, in more than 190 countries around the world on April 9.
Night in Paradise tells the story of a man who has become the target of an organization and a woman standing at the end of her life. It’s a new film by Park Hoon Jung, who has established himself as the master of the noir genre with intense storytelling and amazing action scenes through works like New World, V.I.P., and The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion.
Last year, Night in Paradise was the only Korean feature film to be invited to the non-competition section of the Venice Film Festival and garnered rave reviews from Alberto Barbera (Venice Fest Chief) to be “one of the best Korean gangster films to be released in the recent years.” Other foreign media outlets also praised the work – “A blood-spattered crime thriller from the writer of ‘I Saw The Devil’” (Screen Daily) and “A stylish, meandering, all-gangster Korean crime drama” (Hollywood Reporter).
Park rose to stardom as a screenwriter of The Unjust and I Saw the Devil and later made a grand directorial debut with New World, opening a new genre in the Korean noir genre. As Night in Paradise is the new film of director Park, it is expected to once again promote the aesthetics and excellence of Korean-style noir to the world.
On top of everything, the perfect acting synergy between Uhm Tae Goo, Jeon Yeo Bin, and Cha Seung Won will overwhelm the viewers with their impressive presence.
Director Park Hoon Jung’s Night in Paradise will be released in more than 190 countries around the world through Netflix.
