BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Yonhap) -- A co-produced Sino-South Korean musical, "Dinner for Princess," about a palateless Chinese princess is ready for its run in China from October, producers said Wednesday.

The musical performance is based on a story of a Chinese princess who has lost her sense of taste but regains it through a gourmet competition.

Directed by a Chinese artist Liu Chun, who choreographed the "Silk Road" performance in the opening ceremony of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, "Dinner for Princess" is being made by a joint venture between South Korean and Chinese firms.

The United Asia Live Entertainment (UALE) is set up by South Korean entertainment company CJ E&M and two Chinese firms -- Shanghai Media Group Co. and China Arts and Entertainment Group.

The musical will be released at a theater in Shanghai from Oct. 9 and then across China, the joint venture said.

CJ E&M is ratcheting up efforts to make inroads into China's entertainment industry by launching co-production films and musicals with its Chinese partners.

In April, CJ E&M released a South Korean-Sino co-production film, "A Wedding Invitation," in China.
