One of the top ten grossing Korean films of all time, the 2009 blockbuster Take Off pulled in over eight million admissions at the box office with the inspiring story of Korea's first Olympic ski jump team. Helmed by Kim Yong Hwa (200 Pounds Beauty) who won Best Director at the 46th Daejong Film Awards and the 30th Blue Dragon Awards, the underdog sports drama revolves around the ragtag formation of Korea's first ski jump team. Acclaimed actor Ha Jung Woo (Chaser) plus Kim Ji Suk (I Hate You But It's Fine), Kim Dong Wook (The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince), Choi Jae Hwan (Truck), and Lee Jae Eung (Bravo, My Life!) form the dream team that won over Korean audiences. Take Off, which integrated extensive CGI to create the film's exciting snowscape and competition scenes, was also recognized for Best Visual Effects at the Daejong Awards.
The year is 1996 and the town of Muju is going through massive construction in preparation for a bid to host the 2002 Winter Olympics. The town committee receives notice that there aren't enough athletes representing Korea so they decide to form a ski jump team. Korean-American adoptee and former juniors alpine athlete Bob (Ha Jung Woo), who came to Korea to find his birth mother, gets recruited into Korea's first national ski jump team along with four other amateur athletes. Can this fledgling inexperienced team really make it to the Olympics?
3-Disc Limited Edition of Take Off comes with both the Original Theatrical Cut released in Korea in July 2009 and the Director's Cut with additional and re-edited scenes, which had a limited theatrical release in September 2009. Also comes with Bonus Disc of special features.
