Kim Sein’s directorial debut, The Apartment with Two Women, has been invited to another overseas film festival, drawing more attention since the invitation to the 72nd Berlin International Film Festival’s Panorama Program in 2022.
Director Lee Jaewon’s Thunderbird depicts a night of a taxi driver running for a car full of money. Actor Seo Hyunwoo, who recently emerged as a blue-chip in the Korean film industry, plays the main character taxi driver.
The Udine Far East Film Festival held in Italy is the largest film festival in Europe that introduces Asian films.
