The 9th Udine Far East Film Festival boasts one of the largest showcases of Asian cinema in Europe. This year around 60 titles from across Asia were selected to screen at the event which runs April 20th to 28th in the picturesque northern Italian city. This year 14 top Korean films were invited, of which several will have their International Premiere at the festival.

Making their International festival debut are Lee Jeong-beom's gangster-themed drama "Cruel Winter Blues", Jang Jin's comedy-noir "Righteous Ties", Jang Moon-il's romantic-comedy "A Good Day for an Affair", Byeon Seung-wook's drama "Solace". Two of Korea's top-grossing hits of late 2006 will have their European Premier: Choi Dong-hoon's high-stakes comedy-thriller "Tazza: The High Rollers" ("The War Of Flower") and Kim Yong-hwa's weighty satire "200 Pounds Beauty", a look at the culture of plastic-surgery in the entertainment industry. The latter film went on to become the highest-grossing Korean comedy of all time.

Making their Italian premiere are films "A Dirty Carnival" by Yoo Ha, Thessaloniki top prize winner "Family Ties" ("The Birth of a Family") by Kim Tae-yong, mega-hit "The Host" by Bong Joon-ho, hitman drama "No Mercy for the Rude" by Park Cheol-hee, and lavish effects fantasy "The Restless" by Jo Dong-oh. Rounding out the selection are Choi Ho's hard-edged crime thriller "Bloody Tie" and Lee Jae-yong's deviant teen musical-comedy "Dasepo Naughty Girls" ("Dasepo Girl").
