The Korean film "Like A Virgin" directed by Lee Hae-young was officially invited to the Generation Section of the 57th Berlin International Film Festival, according to the film's production company on Thursday.

"Like A Virgin" was invited to the prestigious festival because of its appeal to teen moviegoers, who compose the jury for the Generation Section, as well as its unique subject matter and solid plot. The film selected in the Generation Section will receive the Crystal Bear Prize.

Released in August, "Like A Virgin" is about a chubby high school boy who decides to compete in traditional Korean wrestling to earn money for a transgender operation.

Slated to open on February 8th of next year, the 57th Berlin International Film Festival will see a host of other Korean films, such as director Lee Yoon-ki's "Ad-Lib Night" for the Young Forum section and Hong Sang-soo's "Woman on the Beach" and Lee Jae-yong's "Dasepo Naughty Girl" ("Dasepo Girl") for the Panorama section.
