Turning Mecard W: Vandyne’s Secret goes to the Korean big screen


After a television run late last fall, Turning Mecard W: Vandyne’s Secret Special Edition is now set for a theatrical release. The compilation film will combine the six episode mini-series with some new twists. The poster for the film promotes a clash between Evan King and Saseongsu, which didn’t happen in the series.

The film version’s directed by franchise regular Hong Heon-pyo, with animation provided by Heewon Entertainment, with assistance by Choirock Content Factory. It’ll be distributed by J&C Media Group and Joy & Cinema. A run time for Turning Mecard W: Vandyne’s Secret Special Edition hasn’t been shared, though it’s doubtful to go for the 3 hours the TV version went. It opens in theatres on February 8th.

Last year saw the release of Turning Mecard W: Revival of Black Mirror, the first film in the franchise. An all-new feature, it grossed ₩3.1 billion at the Korean box office (roughly $2.9 million).

Turning Mecard originally debuted in South Korea in 2015 and is supported by the Sono Kong toy company. The franchise became an immense success, inspiring multiple sequels, toys, mobile games and other merchandise. Most recently, the company has launched the Dino Mecard spinoff. Mattel represents the franchise internationally and has launched it in Australia, Canada and parts of South East Asia.
