2007/06/28 | 647 views | Permalink | Source

The 21st Fukuoka Asian Film Festival opens June 29th and will run through July 8th in Fukuoka, Japan. This film festival started in 1987 to discover and nurture new filmmakers from all over Asia. This year, 14 films from nine nations will be introduced at the festival.

Korea will present four films: "Radio Star" starring the venerable Ahn Sung-ki and Park Joong-hoon and directed by Lee Joon-ik, the maker of one of Korea's highest grossing films "The King and the Clown"; "Cheaters" by director Park Seong-beom; the heart-warming "Ice Bar", starring young actor Park Ji-bin; and the comical "Mission Sex Control" featuring the cute couple Lee Beom-soo and Kim Jung-eun.

An interview on Korea's enigmatic director Kim Ki-duk conducted by French film critic Antoine Coppola will be presented at the festival. The directors of the Korean films also plan to attend Q&A session following the showings of their films to answer questions from the audience.
