Directed by Kim Jin-man and Kim Jae-young, the $3m doc was produced by Korea’s MBC and released theatrically in Korea last August.
Meanwhile M-Line has also sold Park Chul-soo’s erotic drama B.E.D. to Only Hearts for Japan, Sundream for Hong Kong and BK Cinewin for Singapore.
Sundream has also acquired Paik Sang-yeol’s erotic thriller Role Play, which also went to Cine Line Korea for Hong Kong. Lee Ji-seung’s thriller Azooma went to Hwa Yea for Malaysia and Brunei.

Marriage Blue stars Kim Kang-woo and Kim Hyo-jin, who both starred in Im Sang-soo’s The Taste Of Money which played at Cannes last year.
