Fine Cut takes two S. Korean films

'Break Away,' 'Elephant' both picked up

Fine Cut, which is representing foreign-language Oscar contenders from three separate countries, has added two new movies from South Korea.

From helmer Leesong Hee-il (“No Regret”), it has acquired “Break Away,” a dramatic story based on a real incident involving three soldiers on the run for six days. Pic is in post-production and will be ready in time for the Berlin fest in February.

Company has also picked up “Searching for the Elephant,” a debut feature by S.K. Jhung. Pic stars Jang Hyuk of “Volcano High” fame as one of three men who have known one another since childhood but have successfully hidden their dirty secrets. Pic is also in post-production.

Fine Cut, formed by former Cineclick Asia topper Suh Youngjoo, is handling sales on Afghan Oscar hopeful “The Opium War,” by Siddiq Barmak; Argentina’s “Lion’s Den,” by Pablo Trapero; and South Korea’s “Crossing,” by Kim Tae-Kyun.
