After premiering at various international film festivals, it would appear that Cart starring EXO's Do Kyungsoo will be having another overseas premier; this time in Austin, Texas!

Cart will be showing Monday, December 15th, 7PM at the Highland Galaxy 10 movie theatre in Austin, Texas as a special screening.

Texas has been hosting quite the number of Korean events during 2014 including Jay Park and Hyuna during world famous music festival SXSW, as well as fanmeets for both VIXX and Boyfriend. Wonder Girls' member and solo artist HA:TFELT (Ye Eun) also made a trip down to the Lone Star State to sing the Korean National Anthem at the Texas Rangers during Korean American Heritage Night. Even Topp Dogg is scheduled to hold their solo fanmeet in Houston, Texas, this upcoming February (tickets for Topp Dogg's fanmeet in Houston are already available for purchase here).

The movie Cart is based on a true story of contract workers being unlawfully fired from a large grocer. The workers proceed to go on strike only to receive retaliation from law enforcement officials. Sun Hee, played by actress Yeom Jung Ah, is made the leader of the workers union as she shows strong will and compassion for her fellow workers.

Do Kyungsoo plays the role of Choi Tae Young, the son of Sun Hee who is struggling to deal with his mothers treatment while being a high school student and having a part-time job of his own. Cart features many other actresses including Moon Jung Hee, Kim Young Ae, Ji Woo and actor Kim Kang Woo from popular KBS2 drama 'Golden Cross'.

The special screening of Cart is being sponsored by MANDOO Entertainment who aims to bridge Korean content and culture to countries all over the world. They were first founded by a group of Korean businessmen based out of Austin, Texas. MANDOO Entertainment has sponsored many Korean performances throughout the United States one of them being Jay Park and HyunA during Korean Night at SXSW.
