The movie is being produced by Warner Bros. Japan and it has an impressive and a very diverse set of stars and production crew from Japan, Korea and China. Led by Hong Kong director Chi-Ngai Lee and producer Bill Kong, popular Japanese actress Meisa Kuroki plays the female lead ballerina and and Korean actress Go Ara (also under SM Entertainment, featured in HUG MV for DBSK in the past) plays her rival. These two gorgeous hazel-eyed actresses are sure to make this movie a hit! But aside a great cast, the story itself is very psychological in nature and beautiful at the same time (the feelings in the song Bolero portray this perfectly). Click here to find out more about the song lyrics & movie.
They plan to release this movie simultaneously in 2009 throughout Asia, and are also hoping for releases in Europe and America. We hope that "Bolero" will enhance the story to the audiences and more people will get a chance to appreciate Tohoshinki's talent. DBSK will also be making a cameo appearance in the movie, but no speaking lines just performing.
And it gets better! The preview of the MV has been released (with scenes from the movie).
