Less than two months before he is to be released from the Army, there will be a film festival in Japan dedicated to the works of actor Kang Dong-won.
Distributor SPO announced that from Saturday until Sept. 28 "Kang Dong-won Festival 2012 - Missing You" will take place at Cinemart Roppongi in Tokyo.
The organizer said "Duelist" (2005), "M" (2007) "Our Happy Time" (2006), "JEON WOO CHI : The Taoist Wizard" (2009), "Haunters" (2010) and "Secret Reunion" (2010) will be screened.
The 31-year-old Hallyu actor's return is highly anticipated, and recently, Gang won over another fan in fellow actor Lee Jong-suk. "When I saw his movies, I knew that I wanted to become an actor just like him", said Lee during an interview last month with OSEN.
Meanwhile, this isn't the first time that a film fest has been held in Japan to commemorate the works of a Korean actor.
In June, a similar event was staged to showcase the works of Kim Nam-gil, just one month before he was released from the Army.
