1. 'The Match' starring Lee Byung-hun, Yoo Ah-in mulls skipping theaters for Netflix release
기사 요약: 이병헌·유아인 주연 영화 ‘승부,’ 영화관 개봉 대신 넷플릭스 공개행을 논의 중인 것으로 알려졌다.
 New drama film “The Match,” which stars big-name actors Lee Byung-hun and Yoo Ah-in as Go players, is considering skipping a theatrical release and going straight to a streaming platform.
*mull: 숙고하다, 실수하다
 Netflix on Wednesday said they are in talks with officials of ‘The Match’ concerning its release but, "nothing has been decided yet.”
*in talks with: ~와 대화중인
*concern: ~에 영향을 미치다, ~에 관련되다, 우려
 The announcement denies a local news outlet’s report Tuesday that said Netflix and producers of “The Match” had agreed to release the film on the streaming platform.
*deny: 사실이 아니라고 말하다, 부인하다
 According to the report, “The Match,” like many other Korean films, initially sought the right time for a theatrical release, but its producers were considering changing tactics as theater attendance has not improved drastically following the easing of the COVID-19 restrictions.
*seek: 찾다, 추구하다
*tactics: 전술, 작전
*attendance: 출석, 참석자 수
*drastically: 급격히, 대폭
