′The Thieves′ to Premiere a Dubbed Version in Japan
The Thieves, the movie that recorded the biggest audience in Korean box office history, will be flying to Japan in June.
Multiple outlets in Japan reported on May 16 that "The Thieves will be landing in Japan on June 22."
The Japanese title was changed to 10 Thieves, and the film will premiere in a rare dubbed version.
An outlet also introduced the film as "the film that set the highest opening record on the day of its premiere in Korea, and gathered the biggest audience in six years since The Host."
A rep from Live Viewing Japan, the distribution company for The Thieves in Japan, commented, "I was instantly taken with this film. It is as interesting as a Hollywood film."
On why the film will be premiering in a dubbed version, the rep added, "We decided that because the film is so quick paced, we thought if we left in subtitles the audience wouldn′t be able to enjoy the film in full."
The Thieves is about 10 thieves who gather from Korea and China to steal an infamous diamond from Macau′s casinos.
