    Those attending the 2017 Ho Chi Minh - Gyeongju World Culture Expo have the chance to enjoy Korean cinema and see film stars. Earlier this week information was released regarding the Expo’s Korea-Vietnam Film Festival which is set to run from November 17 to 22.

    The festival, which is being overseen by acclaimed director and current head of the Directors Guide of Korea (DGK) BONG Joon-ho, hopes to expand mutual understanding between Korea and Vietnam and fosters exchange and cooperation in the future.
