'Film street' planned in Busan

An artist's description of the Busan film street

The port city Busan, home to one of Asia's largest annual film festivals, plans to remodel a beachside road into a movie-themed street by next June.

The city announced Tuesday that it will spend 1.2 billion won (about $1 million) on the 800-meter street at Marine City near Haenudae beach.

A statue of late director Na Woon-gyu, widely considered the father of modern Korean film, will be erected at the entrance of the street, which will be sprinkled with art work, posters and image cuts from 12 of the most famous Korean films shot in Busan. There will also be handprints of actors and actresses, following a tradition set in Hollywood, and a mockup movie set with cameras, lights, movie slate and other equipment.
