Most Anticipated Korean Films of 2016

11. Mimic
Dir: Huh Jung (Hide and Seek, 2013)
Cast: Yum Jung-ah (A Tale of Two Sisters, 2003), Park Hyuk-kwon (Secret Reunion, 2010)
Production: Dreamcapture
Distribution: Contents Panda (Next Entertainment World)
Filming Dates: 2015-08-04 ~ 2015-11-02
Status: Post-Production
Genre: Thriller, Horror

Plot: A story of the Jangsan Tiger, who mimics human voices to lure them close, and a family affected by the creature.

What to expect: Plot details are scant, but director Huh Jung impressed with his debut Hide and Seek and adding in a mystical element here could bend well with his style. And the more local films with female leads the better, and Yum Jung-ah is someone who deserves more big roles. 

When can we see it? Huh’s last film worked very well in August but I don’t think NEW will release this then. Early summer seems a likelier bet.
