At the 12th edition of the festival, Architecture 101 starring UHM Tae-woong and HAN Ga-in, DURESORI: The Voice of East, a film about a chorus by Korean classical music students, Sunny directed by KANG Hyoung-chul, which sold 7 million tickets in Korea, Mama starring UHM Jung-hwa and KIM Hae-sook, and The Most Beautiful Goodbye directed by MIN Kyu-dong based on a novel written by NOH Hui-gyeong will be screened.
Korean Cultural Center will prepare for on-stage greetings and hold a symposium entitled ‘Charm of Korean Film and Current State of Korean Film Industry’, which film related people from Korea or Japan will attend at.
