Seoul HipHop Film Festival starts next week


The Seoul HipHop Film Festival will be held at the CGV theaters in Cheongdam and Hongdae in Seoul for eight days starting on Oct. 28.

The festival will feature a variety of celebrated films dedicated to hip-hop culture, including the documentary “Bad Rap” (2016), which is about four Asian-American rappers (Dumbfoundead, Awkwafina, Rekstizzy and Lyricks) trying to make it big in hip-hop in the US. The film’s director Salima Koroma and producer Jaeki Cho will also make a special appearance on Oct. 29 for a special question and answer session with the audience.

The event will attempt to feature a variety of topics related to the genre, from “Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap” (2012), which focuses on the craft of writing lyrics, to “Fresh Dressed” (2015), which is a film that chronicles the history of hip-hop and urban fashion.

Korean hip-hop artists will be making appearances at the film festival as well. Some of the stars that will appear include rappers Jinusean, Lee Ha-neul from DJ DOC and BewhY. Tickets go on sale today.
