A NUMBER of popular Korean movies will be screened, starting next week, as part of the 2022 Korean Film Festival.
The 10th edition of the annual event, which is being hosted by the Korean Embassy, will feature three films, all based on true stories.
The festival opens on Tuesday with The Admiral: Roaring Currents, which tells the story of a legendary admiral named ‘Yi Sun-shin’ who defeated a Japanese fleet of more than 300 battleships with only 12 of his own and an army of doubtful soldiers with his extraordinary mind and leadership.
Miracle: Letters to the President, which will be screened on Wednesday, focuses on a high-school boy genius who has deep affections for the small town that he lives in and endeavours to build an unmanned simplified train station in his village.
Crime-drama The Classified File, to be screened on November 24, is based on a real-life 33-day kidnapping case in Busan in 1978.
Admission is free and tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis from 6pm onwards, an hour before the screening, at Seef Mall’s Cinema 13 in Seef District.
