  • by LEE Eun-sun  /  Dec 14, 2012
  • International Poster for NOBODY’S DAUGHTER HAEWON Revealed
    HONG Sangsoo
    ’s new film Nobody’s Daughter Haewon, scheduled to be released in February 2013, has been invited to the official competition section of the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival. HONG was invited to the same section in 2008 with Night and Day. His other films Woman On The Beach and The Day A Pig Fell Into A Well were invited to the Panorama section in 2007 and the Forum section in 1997 respectively.

    The Berlin International Film Festival announced that they invited HONG’s 14th feature film Nobody’s Daughter Haewon, which will be released in 2013, to the official competition section of the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival, held from February 7th to 17th. A representative of FINECUT, the overseas distribution company said, “The festival had great affection for Nobody’s Daughter Haewon, and as such that they decided to invite the film immediately after watching a rough cut during the summer, even before they officially started collecting films for the competition section.” The festival’s competition section is for new films from world class master filmmakers, and features about 25 films world or international premieres every year.

    Nobody’s Daughter Haewon is presented as a diary portraying several days of a journey of sorrow and joy that a college girl Haewon goes through after sending her mother to Canada. HONG has not cast a new actress since he made Virgin Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors, but this time, he thought JUNG Eun-Chae was good enough to take on the role of ‘Haewon’. Nobody’s Daughter Haewon, starring LEE Sun-kyun and JUNG Eun-Chae, will be released in Korea in February next year following its world premiere in Berlin.
