Ghost made in Japan ?

Remember the passionate pottery wheel scene between Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in the 1990 film Ghost. Now, 20 years later, Korean heartthrob Song Seung-heon and Japanese sweetheart Nanako Matsushima have reenacted the "Unchained Melody" moment.

"The remake reenacts some of the most touching scenes in the original, including the pottery-making scene. I hope viewers can feel a pang of nostalgia, thinking 'oh there was that kind of scene', while watching the movie", Song told reporters in Seoul, Tuesday, following a press preview.
The Korea-Japan-United States joint production",Ghost : In Your Arms Again", is about an undying love affair between a Korean pottery artist (Song) and Japanese businesswoman (Matsushima) ― even death does not come between the inseparable couple.
But a twist in the new film, directed by Tarô Ohtani, is that the heroine, rather than the hero, reappears before her lover as a ghost after an untimely death.
