The Target was released in cinemas back home on 30 April and we've been looking forward to a DVD release ever since. Well, good news. Chang's (Death Bell) thumping thrill-ride is set for a Korean home release (with English subtitles) on 10 September.
Director Juhn Jai-Hong was first hired to direct the movie Point Blank but was removed prior to filming. According to distributor CJ E&M, the director and his production company, Yong Film, suffered 'creative differences' that led to his departure. That ol’ 'creative differences' chestnut, eh? Filming was postponed until 17 October 2013, with Chang taking on directorial duties in Seoul and Gyeonggi Province.
