SEOUL—A just released movie about organ harvesting in China was rated the top movie currently showing in Korea by Daum, a major Korean web portal.

The plot of The Traffickers, originates in a true story. In 2009, a newly-wed Korean couple traveled to China where the wife was kidnapped and then murdered, with all her organs stolen.

“[Such practice] ignores the dignity of human life. Those who are involved in it, if they exist, are not humans but beasts,” commented lead actor Lim Chang Jung. Lim filmed several dangerous scenes for the movie in China, including one that caused him a bone fracture.

The Honorable David Kilgour, a former member of the Canadian parliament and secretary of state (Asia-Pacific), and Canadian human rights lawyer David Matas published the first comprehensive report on organ harvesting in China in July, 2006.

The Traffickers is being screened on more than 450 theaters in Korea.

Looks interesting to watch. I haven't heard about this k-movie yet, but after reading your post, I think I need to watch it.
