Korean production company EMK appears to have secured world wide rights for The Count of Monte Cristo from St Gallen. This means any future productions will be the Korean version?


Google translate on the article is pretty decent.

Article also states that they're in negotiations with several foreign producers regarding Mata Hari.

As far as I'm aware, the Korean version is exactly the same as the St. Gallen version. They normally don't change much in Korea from the versions they import from Europe.


Interesting about Mata Hari. That one should have had a decent (ie. not short and overpriced as hell) Cast Recording released or a Concept Album. But Frank hasn't released a new CD in what seems like forever. Last one I recall was Arthur, wasn't it?

The last one, I think, was DEATH NOTE with the two different leads? Not sure why MATA HARI didn't get a full album, but then CYRANO never got recorded either. I don't know why.

Yes I believe last was Death Note.
I too am surprised that Mata Hari hasn't gotten a full album. Especially since producers intend to market it globally...

Not sure btw how much if any of the Global Vision Cyrano album exists. I would have thought they would have released it like Tears of Heaven?
