Hollywood no longer rules South Korean cinema, which is breaking out all over. Since 1999 Seoul filmmakers have been turning out Asia's first critically applauded films, and "My Wife Is a Gangster" and "Phone" are the most stunningly good examples. In the way Americans tour Hollywood, Asians visit Korea to see sites featured in their favorite movies. Korea once looked to America for idea, but now the reverse is true. Hollywood is snapping up remake rights to dozens of Korean films. Madonna's Maverick Films is remaking the horror film "Phone". And DreamWorks recently bought the rights to another horror film "A Tale of Two Sisters." To capitalize on all the attention, South Korea has moved aggressively to cast itself as the center of Asia's film market. The Seoul government and industry leaders are working to rank the Pusan Film Festival as Cannes(戛纳)East, the festivals where deals get gone, a one-stop place where movie-makers can shop for financing, exports, even location. In preparation for the next Pusan Festival this fall, delegations from Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan and all over Asia have been flocking to Seoul to study the Korean film revival. "We look at Korea with an envious eye," says one of Hong Kong movie-makers, "Filmmakers and audiences have found a real vibes (i.e. good atmosphere) between them, like in the 1970s and '80s in Hong Kong." The Korean film industry, however, is still uphill struggle on the way. The annual receipts of Korean films ($580 million) are gaining on those of Asia's largest film industry: India ($820 million) and Japan ($1.93 billion). Yet, Seoul financial markets still tend to see movies as cultural venture, rather than a business. As a movie-making company in Korea, yet KangJeGyu Films had to team up with another filmmaker and an auto-manufacturer in a new company in order to win a listing on the stock market last year.
