EXCLUSIVE: South Korea’s Daisy Entertainment has brought in a new director for its nascent International Sales division - Erica Nam, formerly of Mirovision.
Best known as a buyer with its increasingly-noticeable distribution arm Cinergy in Korea’s top 10 charts, Daisy Entertainment’s new sales team is launching their first market booth at the European Film Market.
The company’s slate is headlined by Im Sang-soo’s The Taste Of Money, currently in post-production.
The Taste of Money stars veteran actress Youn Yuh-jung from The Housemaid with young heartthrob Kim Gang-woo, Baek Yun-shick (The President’s Last Bang) and Kim Hyo-jin (Life Is Peachy). The tale of an affluent family and its satellites conflicted by lust for sex, money and power is said to go beyond the provocative bounds of his former Cannes competitor The Housemaid.
Daisy Entertainment’s EFM slate also includes films such as Kim Yong-han’s thriller Don’t Cry Mommy in post-production and the omnibus film Horror Stories (working title) from directors Kim-Sun and Kim-Gok, Jung Bum-shik, Lim Dae-woong, and Hong Ji-young.
