China’s K-ent Ban May be Lifting as Song Joong Ki and Hyun Bin Movies in Talks for Premiere But Jade Lover with Lee Jong Seok Delayed Until 2030 Due to Zheng Shuang Blacklist

The defrosting appears to have begun with China and South Korean tension that led to basically the soft ban on K-dramas airing on TV and movies in theaters in the Mainland. C-ent is reporting that Song Joong Ki and Kim Tae Ri‘s hit movie Space Sweepers (Spaceship Victory) is in talks for release in Chinese theaters which makes sense as Netflix is still not allowed in China. Hyun Bin and Hwang Jung Min‘s upcoming thriller movie Bargaining (English title The Point Men) is also in talks for release there.
