SEOUL, June 3 (Yonhap) -- "The Medium," a Thai horror film produced by South Korean director Na Hong-jin, will be released in Korea in July, its local distributor Showbox said Thursday.
Based on an original story created by Na, "The Medium" is a story of a family that experiences shaman spiritual inheritance in a rural region of Thailand.
Thai filmmaker Banjong Pisanthanakun, who directed the horror film "Shutter" (2004) and the horror romance "Pee Mak" (2014), Thailand's biggest box-office hit, took the helm of the Thai-Korean project.
It is also Na's first project as a producer. Na has created commercially and critically successful thrillers and horrors, like "The Chaser" (2008), "The Yellow Sea" (2010) and "The Wailing" (2016).
Showbox said "The Medium" will be released globally after hitting Korean screens next month.
