The Korean Film Festival 2015 is organized by The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Malaysia and offers a unique chance for Korean film lovers to experience the vibrancy of the Korean film industry. Besides showcasing and promoting Korean cinema experience, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea aims to introduce Korean culture and tradition to the Malaysian community.
Speaking at the media launch of Korean Film Festival 2015, Minister Yoon Chang Yul, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea said, “On behalf of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, I am delighted to announce that the Korean Film Festival is back to Malaysia. We are excited about organizing this Korean Film Festival 2015. We hope to bring the cultures of Korea and Malaysia closer through this initiative and hence strengthen the ties between our two nations.”
“We are thrilled to offer Korean film-lovers a diverse showcase of world cinema exploring the global Korean experience. The four days event is going to be filled with fun and exciting Korean movies that cater the audiences from across all age groups. The festival features a line-up of ten films which are selected among the best of Korean cinema. The movie line-up includes dramatic features, fascinating animes, and comedies,” said Mr. Yoon Chang Yul.
The Korean Film Festival presents films across a diverse selection of Korean film genres, which include recent classics as well as award winning films. Drama, action-thriller, heart-warming romance movies, and animation are in the line-up to attract a wide-range of audiences and showcase the diversity of Korean movies. The much-loved Korean cinema experience will certainly please the Korean movie fans while offering cinematic insight into contemporary Korean culture.
We also get to watch the premiere screening of 'All About My Wife' during the media launch. Please make sure you don't miss this awesome romantic-comedy film! The film features some of the big names - Im Soo-jeong, Lee Sun-kyun, Ryoo Seung-ryong and Lee Gwang-soo! It's romantic, funny, with a beautiful storyline and ending. I definitely will rewatch this film again!
