Production will start on Sunday on “Harbin,” a Korea-produced historical drama film. The film is set in the early days of the 20th century when Korea and parts of China were under Japanese rule. Mixing real and fictional characters, the story follows Korean freedom fighter Ahn Jung-geun who assassinated the Japanese official in charge of Korea at a railway station in Harbin, Manchuria. The film is directed by Woo Min-ho (“The Man Standing Next,” “Inside Men”) and will star Hyun Bin (“Confidential Assignment 2: International,” TV’s “Crash Landing on You”) as Ahn, along with Jo Woo-ji Jeon Yeo-been and Lee Dong-wook. Production is by Hive Media with distribution by CJ ENM.


A Disney spokesman told Variety that there is no truth to Malaysian media reports over the last day that the company is planning to build a theme park in the country’s Melaka region. Some publications had reported the building of a 150 to 200 acre (roughly 61 to 81 hectare) facility to be called Disney City. General elections in Malaysia, such as the one due later this week, have previously seen politicians making outlandish claims that will likely never come to fruition. There were similar reports of a Disneyland in Malaysia in 2009. There are currently three Disney-themed parks in Asia: in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai.


Disneytown, Wishing Star Park and Shanghai Disneyland Hotel resumed operations on Thursday after being closed late last month due to anti-COVID measures in Shanghai. But the Shanghai Disneyland theme park remains closed until further notice, operators said. Shanghai Disneyland closed on government orders on Oct. 31, trapping many guests in the park for some hours. “Guests inside the park were provided with expedited COVID testing and all guests have exited the park,” operators said later that day. Some attractions and experiences remained open throughout the day. And according to the Shanghai government all guests tested negative.
