South Korean Movie 'Mr. Go' will Be Showing in the Philippines!
If you're a Korean movie buff, you might have already heard of Mr. Go, the first South Korean movie that was entirely shot in 3D. Good news! you don't have to fly all the way to South Korea to watch this epic movie because it will be exclusively shown in select SM Cinemas this October!
To give you a short preview about Mr. Go's story, it's about a Gorilla named Ling Ling- yes, a gorilla! Mr. Go is a light hearted story movie about a baseball-playing gorilla and his 15-year old manager who become superstars after playing in the Korean Baseball League.
Young circus ringmaster Wei Wei has only bat-swinging gorilla Ling Ling to depend on as her only family member and friend, her grandfather, dies in the Great Sichuan Earthquake, leaving behind an insurmountable debt. When a loan shark threatens to sell Ling Ling and the circus kids to cover the debt, Wei Wei has no choice but to allow Ling Ling to be scouted in the Korean Baseball League by the materialistic sports agent Sung.
Ling Ling, now dubbed ‘Mr. Go’, becomes an instant hit with fans and leads his team Doosan to a miraculous winning streak. No pitcher can stand up to Mr. Go’s powerful single-handed swing, and they watch helplessly as the ball flies out of the park.
His popularity grows so immensely that even the fans of his opposing teams cheer for him, and single-handedly attracts worldwide media attention to the league. Wei Wei and Sung are stunned and blinded by the sudden success, and neglect to detect Ling Ling’s worsening knee injury, just as Japanese clubs are drafting ground breaking trade propositions. Here is SM Cinema's CinExclusive preview of Mr. Go:
One more interesting bit about this movie is that it's soundtrack titled 'BYE' is sung by Girls Generation (SNSD) member Kim Tae-Yeon! You can check out the official music video of 'BYE' by Kim Tae-Yeon below;
