    1. Why do you think they should so? Do you think they can make any profit from that? Usually we need a subteam to do subtitles because they are fan in one of characters OR this movie is shown around the world OR in Netflix (ex: #Alive).

  1. Well…they can get more viewers. I’m sure they would want many people to watch their movie not only in Korea but worldwide. Even the cast includes a hollywood debut actor.
