Opening the proceedings will the surprise hit senior citizen love story Late Blossom (2011) from CHOO Chang-min, the director of last year’s Masquerade. Next on the program will be the classic Korean romcom 200 Pounds Beauty from 2006, starring KIM A-joong and JOO Jin-mo and director by Mr. Go’s KIM Yong-hwa. The film drew over 6.6 million viewers during its initial release.
The following day will feature a screening of the romantic film Architecture 101, starring UHM Tae-woons, HAN Ha-in, LEE Je-hoon and BAE Suzy. The film scored over four million admissions early last year. Closing out the Korean film event will be the 2009 sports film Take Off, another KIM Yong-hwa film, this time starring HA Jung-woo. The drama was an enormous hit, reaching almost 8.4 million admissions.
