Kim Jee-woon's "A Bittersweet Life" (2005) and Kim Dong-weon's "My Boss, My Teacher" (2006) are programmed at this year's San Diego Asian Film Festival. San Diego will host the seventh edition of the film festival from October 12 until October 19, 2006.

The much praised film noir "A Bittersweet Life" stars Lee Byung-hun as a right-hand of a criminal leader. He solves problems in a stylish and undisputed way, not hesitating to use violence when he feels it is needed. He is untouchable until he meets the lover of his boss and develops feelings for her.

"My Boss, My Teacher" is this year's record breaking comedy, becoming the most popular comedy in Korea. The gangster comedy is a sequel of the successful "My Boss, My Hero" from 2001. Jung Joon-ho plays the protagonist, a student who works at night as a gangster.

Daniel Dae Kim actor from the television sensation Lost is one of the festival's special guests.

The festival opens with Journey fromthe Fall, award winner at Sundance Film Festival. Always: Sunset at Third Street has been selected as the closing film. Always: Sunset at Third Street swept this year's Japanese Academy Awards with thirteen awards.
