Combing CJ E&M global standard expertise with HKFilm local smarts, we are confident we can bring high quality films that the local audience deserves,” said Louie Nguyen, film investor and board member of HKFilm. “Our goal is to become the number one film company in Vietnam, with a target of 30% market share,” added Nguyen. From now until 2018, CJ HK Entertainment aims to produce and release more than five Vietnamese films a year.

The formation of CJ HK Entertainment is part of the corporate mission of both CJ E&M Vietnam and HKFilm to nurture a uniquely Vietnamese film industry by leveraging the best resources of Vietnam and Korea to produce high quality films,

The first two films by CJ HK Entertainment will be the Brilliant May (directed by Nguyen Quang Dung) and the Immortal (directed by Victor Vu).
