Korean Political Thriller “1987: When the Day Comes” Hits the U.S. and Canada in January

A political conspiracy transpired thirty years ago in Korea and a film about the events is gearing for a U.S. and Canada release in January.

1987: When the Day Comes revolves around a college student who is killed during a police interrogation. Government officials quickly jump to cover up the death and order the body cremated, but the prosecutor who needs to sign off raises questions on the cause of death – a heart attack – and begins to dig for the truth. Despite a systematic attempt to silence everyone involved in the case, the truth gets out, sending a government fighting to keep power into political turmoil.

Jang Joon-Hwan directed the film, which stars Kim Yoo-Seok, Ha Jung-Woo, Yoo Hai-Jin, Kim Tae-Ri, and Lee Hee-Jeon.

The film gets a limited theatrical release on December 29 at the CGV Cinemas in Los Angeles and Buena Park before its national release date of January 12, 2018.
