[INFO] FINECUT to introduce ‘Sea Fog’ at European Film Market (EFM) 2014 in Berlin

Note: FINECUT is a film company based in Seoul, Korea, specializing in international sales, marketing, production, financing and acquisition.
‘Sea Fog’ will be introduced at EFM 2014 (6~14 February) in Berlin as an upcoming release.


Based on true events, the story is about a large 69-ton fishing boat’s crew as they attempt to smuggle in illegal migrants in order to keep their fishing jobs. But their plan goes wrong when they meet a tragic accident while transporting the thirty or so illegal migrants on the ship amid a heavy sea fog. And amid the chaos, the youngest crew Dong-sik tries to protect a young female migrant who he falls in love with against the crazed Captain Kang and other crew members.

Director’s Comment
Based on a true event that took place in Yeosu, 2001, HAEMOO is a combination genre film that fuses crime thriller and melodrama. Ordinary fishermen face moments of hell as they take on the role of smuggling illegal Korean-Chinese migrants. Stuck in thick sea fog, I wanted to portray the innocence and personal sacrificial love that rise from clashing of this generation’s pain, human desire, human desire and morality in a moment of grave adversity.
