Korea’s leading media & entertainment conglomerate, CJ E&M, has announced the arrival of tvN Movies – their self-proclaimed World’s FIRST and ONLY Korean Blockbuster movie channel – in Malaysia on Astro, our very own local media and lifestyle company in the Digital, TV, Radio and eCommerce landscape. From 1 August onwards, tvN Movies will be available on demand on Astro GO and Astro TV Channel 435 offering first run and exclusive Korean titles.
tvN Movies introduced Korean movies to Southeast Asian audiences by presenting them with various Korean box-office hits. In support of the Korean cinema industry and its launch on Astro, tvN Movies have worked with movie distributors Clover Films and GSC Movies Sdn Bhd to present The Battleship Island Star Tour in Malaysia. During the glittering star tour, Best Actor oppa Hwang Jung-min, hotties So Ji-sub, Song Joong-ki and “high-octane” director Ryoo Seung-wan are coming to Malaysia to meet with their fangirls and media.
The much-talked about appearances of The Battleship Island stars and director will kick off at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur’s swanky Main Entrance at 7pm on 9 August, followed by the posh-sounding Gala Premiere at GSC Pavilion KL thereafter.
On that note, tvN Movies fans and Astro customers will stand a chance to win premiere passes to the Gala Premiere of The Battleship Island on 9 August. Passionate fangirls will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to gaze lovingly and meet the dreamy Hwang Jung-min, So Ji-sub, and Song Joong-ki up close and personal too.
The contest for Astro customers will run from now till 6 August 2017. To study rigorously more about the contest and terms and conditions, please visit www.astro.com.my/astrocircle. tvN Movies fans can check out its Facebook (@Ch.tvNMovies) for contests and other updates on the Star Tour.
