Seoul-based sales agent Cineclick Asia has announced a flurry of sales to three territories - the Middle East, Japan and Hungary - at the Asian Film Market, headlined by Kim Ki-duk's Breath, which looks set to be the first Korean film theatrically released in the Arab regions.

Ghassan Production and Distribution (GPD) took Middle Eastern rights to Kim's recent Cannes competition entry, along with another nine films which sold for TV and DVD/video rights.

The package includes Berlinale winner Tuya's Marriage; horror films A Tale Of Two Sisters and The Red Shoes; Kim Ki-duk titles The Bow and 3-Iron; melodrama Love Me Not; Daniel Henney-starrer Seducing Mr. Perfect, and Kim Tae-yong's drama Family Ties.

GPD previously bought Korean TV dramas such as Jumong and The Coffee Prince, but this is the first time they have picked up Korean films.

Cineclick also sold Japanese TV rights to Nettai Museum, set up by former Happinet Pictures exec Fumi Ikeda, on horror films The Red Shoes and Acacia, police drama The Wolf Returns and comedy Mission: Sex Control.

The company also sold DVD, TV and VoD rights to Hungary 's Cinetel on Tuya's Marriage, The Red Shoes, A Tale Of Two Sisters and Kim Ki-duk's Samaritan Girl.

'We've actually had more interest in library titles here,' said Cineclick's Yunjeong Kim, senior manager of sales & marketing. 'More than the prices, we're placing a significance on the sales themselves to territories like the Middle East where so few Korean films have been seen. It's about creating new markets.'
