[News] The Royal Tailor Received An Award in New York and Gets Screening Date in Japan

The Royal Tailor snatched another award from the New York Asian Film Festival following an official announcement on 15 July 2015. The movie garnered 94% positive votes to bring home the 2015 Audience Award, beating Korean social drama “Cart”, Korean documentary  “My Love, Don’t Cross That River’ and Cambodian drama “The Last Reel”.

The so-called Korean fashion-themed historical drama is praised for its stunning insight to Royal costume and textile designed by Jo Sang-gyeong. This is the second audience award for Royal Tailor after receiving one in the 17th Udine Far East Film Festival.

Royal Tailor’s director, Lee Won Suk, was present during the NYAFF and gave an interview in which he talked about working with Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Shin-Hye. Quoted from the an article released by KDramaStars, Director Lee mentioned that Yoo Yeon Seok is such a hard worker who has a great personality and is very caring. Working with Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Shin Hye for Royal Tailor was an amazing experience for him. 

After New York, The Royal Tailor is set to charm the Japanese audience following the announcement of nationwide screening starting 7 November 2015. The movie, titled サンイウォン / Saniwon in Japanese, will be screened on CinemArt in Shinjuku, Tokyo and Shinsaibashi, Osaka.

Are you excited for Japanese’s broadcast of ‘Warm and Cozy’ and ‘Reply 1994’?

The latest update came from ‘Royal Tailor‘. The movie had completed it’s run in Korea but it doesn’t stop them from releasing a video commentary featuring its leading casts including Go Soo, Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Shin Hye. The video commentary was featured on MBC’ Let’s Go! Video Travel on 21 June 2015 and has Yoo Yeon Seok – Park Shin Hye – Lee Yubi acting all cute behind the scene.

Royal Tailor DVD is now on sale so if you are a diehard fan of this movie or one of its casts, you can find it on various stores.

Guess that’s all I got for you today. ‘On The Set’ might not get a regular date like ‘Around The Net’ but hopefully it will since Yoo Yeon Seok’s eyes are pretty glued to Chungmuro. He has one movie completed with Moon Chae Won, ‘The Mood That Day‘ and he soon will enter the production of ‘Heohwa‘ with Beauty Inside’s co-star Han Hyo Joo.

I am signing off for now. See ya next time!
