Actor Jung Woo-sung, popular in both his native country and Japan, will be among the special guests this time, with five films in the lineup showcasing his acting trajectory, with the generational drama Beat (1996) and the erotic thriller Scarlet Innocence among the highlights. Another program high point will be the festival’s grand finale, the Italian premiere of Beautiful Days, documentary director Jero Yun’s first work of fiction. Per tradition, the festival will feature an eclectic mix of independent and big-ticket films; a photography exhibition, Imaging Korea, with 100 contemporary-minded works from seven Korean artists; and a “Horror Night” for adrenaline junkies.
