INVESTORS here could soon be seeing stars - film stars that is - if plans by a South Korean film production group to list in Singapore bear fruit.

Spackman Entertainment Group, one of the country's leading production firms, announced yesterday that it has lodged its preliminary offer document to list on the Catalist board.

The firm, which primarily produces, presents and invests in theatrical films, would be the first such Korean company to list here.

And when they are listed, retail investors will get to buy a piece of the firm which has produced hits such as Cold Eyes (2013) starring actors Jung Woo Sung and Han Hyo Joo as well as the English-language movie Snowpiercer, featuring Chris Evans, John Hurt and Tilda Swinton.
