Korean film distributor FINECUT, which is presenting HONG Sangsoo’s new film On the Beach at Night Alone in the International Competition section of the Berlin International Film Festival this year, has added new films to its lineup for the currently underway European Film Market (EFM).
Joining the boutique distributor’s lineup in Berlin are the debut suspense thriller True Fiction and SHIN Su-won’s new mystery fantasy Glass Garden. JI Hyun-woo (Attack The Gas Station 2, 2010), OH Man-seok (DETOUR, 2016) and LEE Eun-woo (Moebius, 2013) feature in KIM Jin-muk’s True Fiction, a tale of corruption and politics from the production house PEPPERMINT&COMPANY, previously behind KIM Jee-woon’s I Saw The Devil (2010) and PARK Hoon-jung’s New World (2013).
Starring MOON Geun-young of A Tale Of Two Sisters (2003) as a reclusive but brilliant researcher and KIM Tae-hun (Roaring Currents, 2014) as the writer who approaches her, Glass Garden follows director SHIN’s Berlin-invited PLUTO (2013) and Cannes-invited Madonna (2015).

The feature film debut of director CHO Sun-ho, A Day stars KIM Myung-min (Deranged, 2012) as a doctor who witnesses a car accident involving his daughter, only to find himself locked in a loop as the events repeat over and over before him.
House of the Disappeared, the return of To Sir, With Love (2006) director LIM Dae-woong, features KIM Yun-jin of TV show Lost as a woman who is released from jail 25 years after the deaths of her husband and child and returns to the scene of the crime to solve the mystery surrounding their deaths.
