E J-yong invited to Berlin film festival
E’s work is the third Korean film to be selected for the festival; directors Hong Sang-soo and Lee Dong-gu also made the cut.
This is also E’s fourth time at the European movie event. His previous works “Untold Scandal” (2004), “Daesapo Naughty Girl” (2006) and “Actresses” (2010) were all included in the panorama section.
His submission this year is about a wacky director who sets off for Hollywood with a dream to shoot a movie through the Internet.
It stars Yoon Yeo-jung, Park Hee-soon and Kang Hye-jung.
Meanwhile, Hong’s latest work, “Nobody’s Daughter Haewon,” has been invited to the competition segment.
Hong’s inclusion was made public even before the official short list was announced.
The film’s production company announced the good news last month.
