Can you play Region 3 DVDs? If so, you’re in luck. Director Kim Sang Man’s radio-oriented thriller “Midnight FM” is headed to DVD this October. The bonus, of course, is that the disc comes equipped with English subtitles. Which is great, especially for those of us who can’t speak Korean. Beyond Hollywood’s own James Mudge reviewed the film earlier this year, which you can read by clicking right here. Here’s hoping Stateside distribution isn’t too far behind.
If you’re unfamiliar with “Midnight FM”, then you should probably read this:
Tonight is late night radio host Sun Young’s (Soo Ae) final show. The next morning she will be flying to the States with her ill daughter. During the program, she receives a shocking phone message: her family has been taken hostage. Threatening to kill her family if she doesn’t do as he says, the caller (Yoo Ji Tae) sends her instructions, starting with requests for obscure songs. Sun Young has two hours to save her family – and her live broadcast cannot stop.
“Midnight FM” hits Region 3 DVD on October 25th, 2011.
