According to some, newly released South Korean animated feature film Lost in the Moonlight appears very familiar.

Namely, the comparison that is being made is with the classic 2001 Studio Ghibli film Spirited Away—something that even the mainstream Korean is reporting.

The film’s director Kim Hyun-Joo is quoted by Choshun Online as saying that he believes these plagiarism allegations wouldn’t exist if people had seen the full movie first, instead of only the trailer. Perhaps he’s right!

 

 

 

Spirited Away is popular in South Korea, and Lost in the Moonlight’s YouTube trailer has been hit hard with dislikes.
