Stars Visits London During ‘Year of 4 Actors’ Event
The Korean Cultural Center UK (KCCUK) has been staging a ‘Year of 4 Actors’ event throughout 2013 and HA Jung-woo will be the fourth and final star to visit the UK next week. The A-list actor will attend a screening of his summer hit The Terror, LIVE in London on December 18th and also participate in a Q&A session.
HA is wrapping up a huge year after starring in two of the year’s biggest films, the aforementioned hit The Terror, LIVE and RYOO Seung-wan’s spy thriller The Berlin File, released during the Lunar New Year holiday, which powered to 5.58 and 7.17 million viewers respectively. HA also released his directorial debut, the comedy Roller Coaster, which premiered at the Busan International Film Festival in October. Previous HA films also featured in the showcase were The Moonlight Of Seoul (2008) and The Yellow Sea (2011), while The Berlin File will screen later in the month.
Korean thesps CHOI Min-shik, MOON So-ri and JEON Do-yeon were the other actors featured during this year’s quartet of showcases. Last year, the KCCUK staged a similar event called ‘Year of 12 Directors’ for which a different Korean filmmaker was invited each month to London. The Korean Cultural Center UK is also responsible for staging the London Korean Film Festival, which held its eighth edition last month.
