Eight Korean films, including "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" (directed by Park Chan-wook), have been invited to the 49th "The Times London Film Festival" (LFF) to be held in Britain from Oct. 20 to Nov. 4.

According to the list of films invited to this year's festival that was released on the LFF Secretariat's Web site ( Open the link ) on Sept. 15, "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" was invited to the LFF's "Film on the Square" division and five Korean films were invited to the "World Cinema" division.
