KIM Go-eun and KIM Joo-hun Lead Short Film UNTACT
Last year, Samsung became the first tech company to launch 8K screens, the latest generation in high resolution technology, which offers four times the numbers of pixels available with the current 4K industry norm, and 16 times more than the standard 1080p high definition.
Samsung announced that it is planning to open two 8K cinemas in Seoul next month, where it will be possible to see KIM’s film on QLED 8K screens. The theaters will operate on a limited reservation system, while the film will also be made available through online networks such as YouTube.
This isn’t the first time that Director KIM has helmed a promotional film designed to highlight a new technology’s capability. He previously directed the short The X (2013), starring GANG Dong-won, which introduced CGV’s three-wall projection Screen X technology. That film was presented as a gala screening at the Busan International Film Festival in 2013.
