    Universal Studio will open, much-needed, "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" at Universal Studio Japan in late 2014.
    Its the $500 million dollar project, and the constuction already has began last summer.

    Consider the company just opened Universal Studio Singapore in 2010, I dont know Universal Studio Korea actually materialize.

    Anyone Korean speaking in this board who may translate some of the press releases posted by Jasiel? Google Translate just doesn't get Korean-English quite right, I can hardly understand anything. What's the concrete status of the project now? Do they have confirmed funding for it?
