Helmed by director Park Kwang-hyun of the 2005 critical and commercial hit Welcome to Dongmakgol, Fabricated City features Ji Chang-wook, Ahn Jae-hong who has been gaining notice as a commercial film star, appearing in Twenty (2015) and Coin Locker Girl (2015), and Shim Eun-kyung who rose to popularity through Sunny (2011) and Miss Granny (2014). Shim recently got behind the mic to provide her voice for Yeon Sang-ho’s Seoul Station and will soon be seen in the upcoming film Special Citizen alongside Choi Min-sik.


In real life, Kwon Yoo (played by Ji Chang-wook) is unemployed, but in the virtual game world he is the best leader. Kwon yoo is then framed for a murder. With the help of hacker Yeo-wool (Shim Eun-kyung), he tries to uncover the truth behind the murder case.

Fabricated City is eyeing a February release and will be distributed by CJ Entertainment.

My name is Panos Kotzathanasis and I am Greek. Being a fan of Asian cinema and especially of Chinese kung fu and Japanese samurai movies since I was a little kid, I cultivated that love during my adolescence, to extend to the whole of SE Asia. Starting from my own blog in Greek, I then moved on to write for some of the major publications in Greece, and in a number of websites dealing with (Asian) cinema, such as Taste of Cinema, Hancinema, EasternKicks, Chinese Policy Institute, and of course, Asian Movie Pulse. in which I still continue to contribute. In the beginning of 2017, I launched my own website, Asian Film Vault, which I merged in 2018 with Asian Movie Pulse, creating the most complete website about the Asian movie industry, as it deals with almost every country from East and South Asia, and definitely all genres.

  1. I would love to see this film in a THEATRE!!! I’m petitioning a local independent place – they screened Train To Busan so maybe!

  2. I saw this last night in Los Angeles (CGV theatre) and really enjoyed it. Ji Chang-wook gives a solid performance and the action is top notch. A little too much “shakey cam” in some spots, but the production values are really high and there’s some humor with the supporting characters, of which Eun-kyung Shim is the most intriguing. The theme of how the ultra-rich elites use their unlimited wealth and resources to avoid the consequences of their immoral actions reflects current political scandals. FABRICATED CITY is an action film first and foremost, not INSIDE MEN with martial arts. If your local indy house screened TRAIN TO BUSAN or THE WAILING there’s a good chance they’ll try this one. That said, those two films are superior to FC (though it’s the number one film in Korea this week).
