In the local scene, with record-breaking box-office hits such as Joint Security Area, Myung Film has become widely recognized as the nation's best film studio. To further produce a diverse range of quality films, Myung Film has also expanded its business by establishing in two new production companies, and E pictures, while also forming a film investment pool of $10 million, and renewing its partnership with CJ Entertainment.
