“The Divine Move,” a crime thriller that combines the Korean game of Go (ba-duk) with action, is coming to theaters in Los Angeles and Orange County July 25.

The movie will open at the Koreatown CGV in Los Angeles and at the Regal La Habra in Fullerton.

The film, featuring an impressive cast that includes superstars Jung Woo-sung, Lee Bum-soo and Ahn Sung-ki, is one of Korea’s top box office hits in history, having catapulted to the top of the box office in Korea — with 2.8 million admissions in two weeks — upon its release earlier this month.

The movie revolves around a professional Go player, played by Jung, who seeks revenge for the death of his brother through high-stakes, life-or-death games of Go.

“Even if audiences aren’t familiar with Go, the quick and detailed storyline will draw them in,” said CJ Entertainment, the U.S. distributor of the film. “And for people who know the game and its origin, the movie will provide ideal entertainment.”

“The Divine Move” runs 118 minutes. Visit www.CJ-Entertainment.com or the official facebook page for more information.
