27 Sep – Korean Film Festival (KFF) 2018 is taking place from today 27 September until this Sunday, 30 September.
Launched yesterday by HE Dr. Toh Kyung Hwan, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea, this year the festival brings a total of five Korean movies that will be screened for free for Malaysian audiences to enjoy.
The movies are "The Face Reader", "Run-Off", "Detective K: Secret of the Lost Island", "Green Days: Dinosaur and I" and "Dong Ju: The Portrait Of A Poet".
"The Face Reader" was also the opening film for KFF 2018, screened yesterday evening at GSC Mid Valley's Onyx Hall during the launch.
HE Dr. Toh Kyung Hwan explained that the hall was "the right place to showcase Korea's cutting edge technology" since it is equipped with Malaysia's first LED screen, which is made by Korea's Samsung.
Moviegoers who would love to experience the Onyx hall too would be able to do so during the film festival period, since there will be a total of 10 KFF 2018 movie screenings that will be available at the hall.
Another five screenings of KFF 2018 movies will be held at Hall 6 of GSC Mid Valley.
A total of 1500 tickets for the film festival have been available for redemption since 23 September.
Apart from the film screenings, there will be several other Korean-related activities to be held in early October.
On 1 October, a hanbok (Korean traditional attire) fashion show will take place at Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, followed by a "Fantastic Sounds of Korea" performance at the Petronas Philharmonic Hall on 2 October and a Korean speech contest at the National University of Malaysia on 3 October.
