Actress Shim Eun-kyung's Japanese debut film "The Journalist" will hit Korean theaters later this year.
The movie has already attracted more than 400,000 viewers since it was released in Japan in June.
Based on a book by Isoko Mochizuki, a Tokyo Shimbun reporter who exposed government cover-ups about a scandal linked to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, it attempts to tackle fake news and official cover-ups in the format of a conventional thriller.
Shim has received good reviews in Japan regardless of her nationality, which has become more problematic since a spat between the two neighboring countries intensified.
