Seoul, Korea– CJ E&M’s Veteran, its latest Korean box office hit is set to open in major cities across North America, including New York City, Chicago, Washington D.C. and Vancouver and Toronto the the following day.

Prior to its official release in North America, director of Veteran Ryoo Seung-wan will attend premiere events in LA this September. This follows Ryoo’s visit to the 40th Toronto International Film Festival where he already received enthusiastic response from about 400 film industry insiders and moviegoers who attended to watch the film at the Scotiabank theatre.

Veteran will be available in 46 theaters across North America. The number is higher than those allocated to other CJ Entertainment films such as The Admiral: Roaring Currents (30 screens) and Ode to My Father (38 screens), which were among last year’s top 10 highest-grossing foreign language films in the U.S..
