A special showing of director Bong Joon-ho's works has been held in three US cities of New York, Chicago and San Francisco.
The Korean Film Council said Monday that it has organized the event to mark the release of Bong's recent film "The Host" there on Friday.

Two of Bong's previous films were shown in New York on Feb. 25, in Chicago on Saturday and in San Francisco on Monday. "Barking Dogs Never Bite" was his debut commercial film and "Memories of Murder" became a hit by drawing 5 million viewers when it was released in Korea. The director himself attended a meeting with the audience in San Francisco.

Meanwhile, a retrospective of director Hong Sang-soo will be held at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, which will open on March 15. Seven of his works will be shown, including "The Day a Pig Fell Into the Well", "The Power of Gangwon Province", "Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors", "On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate", "Woman is the Future of Man", "Tale of Cinema", and "Woman on the Beach".
