A total of seven Korean features will be showcased to California audiences at the upcoming 11th San Diego Asian Film Festival, set to run Oct. 21 28. The fest will screen 140 films from 20 countries with a line-up of both commercial and art house favorites.

Korean films in the program run the full spectrum of genres, with big-budget Korean war drama "71-Into the Fire", directed by Lee Jae-han; Cannes-selected orphanage drama "A Brand New" Life by French-Korean-adoptee Ounie Lecomte; Berlinale screener "Actresses", a celebrity mockumentary by Lee Jae-yong; acclaimed independent feature "Bandhobi" by Sin Dong-il; commercial comedy "Good Morning President" by writer-director Jang Jin; stretch-and-gasp horror "Yoga" by Yoon Jae-yeon; and adoptee documentary Resilience by Korean-American director Tammy Chu.

Also in the program is Kore'eda Hirokazu's award-winning feature Air Doll starring Korean actress Bae Doona, and the Seoul-set Japanese feature "Cafe Seoul" by director Take Masaharu and a cast of both Korean and Japanese actors.
