2016 seems to be a good year for Korean cinema in the UK. After the news broke out about ‘Train to Busan’ bringing it’s success over to the UK, comedy film ‘Luck-Key’ is also following suit.

‘Luck-Key’ is a remake of a Japanese film called ‘Key of Life‘. Directed by Lee Gye-beok, It follows the story of two men who, when their paths cross, end up taking over each other lives. When a cold-hearted killer visits the public bath, he suffers an accident which completely erases his memory. Meanwhile, a run-down actor has witnessed this ‘rich man’s’ accident and decides to switch locker room keys with him. This leads to the two men living out each other’s lives.

After maintaining number one in the Korean box office, the film reached UK cinemas on Friday, 28th October and is currently showing in selected cinemas listed below.
