Before its release in South Korean theaters on the 18th, the movie had been invited to be screened at the 22nd Fukuoka International Film Festival just last month. And just several days ago, the members of INFINITE attended the premiere for their film where they expressed their excitement for the high-quality 3D production which would showcase special footage from their encore concert.
