HA NOI (VNS)— South Korean director Choo Chang-min will attend the Korean Film Festival opening screening of his movie Masquerade tomorrow at Megastar Vincom Towers.
The movie is set in the early 17th century during the Chosun dynasty and revolves around a commoner who's a dead ringer for the king and agrees to swap places with him after a suspected assassination attempt against the ruler.
The movie stars Lee Byung-hun in the dual role.
Since opening in the country last September, the movie sold over 10 million tickets - one of a handful of Korean movies to reach that lofty goal.
Director Choo and the movie's producer Won Dong-yeon will share their experiences in the film industry with Vietnamese filmmakers in a seminar held by the Korean Cultural Centre.
Masquerade will be screened at 7pm and 9.15pm tomorrow and at 4.20pm and 6.35pm on Friday. The film festival will show As One, Punch, A Werewolf Boy aSea sovereignty and Jumbagi with Vietnamese subtitles at Cinema 8.
Underprivileged children in Ha Noi will be invited to see the animated film Jumbagi, according to a centre representative.
The films were also screened in Da Nang City earlier this week. — VNS
