The Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival will open its doors on June 26 at Yongsan CGV in Seoul. The festival will finish on July 2. Among the upcoming directors, the festival also screens actor Yoo Ji-tae's directorial short film effort "Out of My Intention" (Nado Moreuge) in the competition section.

Park Jin-pyo directed "You are my Sunshine" (Neoneun Nae Woonmyeong) and "Voice of a Murderer" (Geu Nom Moksori). Kim Tae-yong received acclaim for his "Family Ties" ("The Birth of a Family", Gajokui Tansaeng). Kim Yong-hwa was the man behind the box office hit "200 Pounds Beauty" (Minyeoneun Gwereoweo). Jo Chang-ho competed at several international film festivals with "The Peter Pan Formula" (Peter Panui Gongsik). Kim Hyun-seok helmed the romantic drama "When Romance Meets Destiny" (Gwangsigi Dongsaeng Gwangtae). Kim Tae-sik's "Driving With My Wife's Lover" (Anaeui Aeineul Mannada) was praised at festivals. Kim Han-min scored a hit with "Paradise Murdered" ("Paradise Murdered", Geukrakdo Sarinsageon). JEON Kye-soo directed the comedy "The Ghost Theater" (Samgeori Geukjang). Choi Dong-hoon's gamble film "Tazza: The High Rollers" ("Tazza: The High Rollers") paid of successfully in cinemas. Na Hong-jin recently graduated from short films to feature films, his debut feature film "The Chaser" (Choogyeokja) is, so far, this year's most popular Korean film, and earned him an invitation to this year's Festival de Cannes.
