Cinecube to launch special screenings of Youn Yuh-jung films
Art-house theater Cinecube announced Wednesday it will launch special screenings of veteran actor Youn Yuh-jung’s previous works, as locals await to see if she will become the first Korean to win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Minari” (2020).
From April 15 to 28, Cinecube, located in Gwanghwamun in central Seoul will screen four of Youn’s representative pieces — “A Good Lawyer’s Wife” (2003), “The Housemaid” (2010), “The Bacchus Lady” (2016) and “Lucky Chan-sil” (2020).
Though the 75-year-old Youn, who made a debut 56 years ago, has a varied filmography, Cinecube said it has selected these works as “they show the versatility of Youn.”
Cinecube is also currently screening the films that have been nominated for Best Picture at the 93rd Academy Awards, including “The Father” (2020), “Nomadland” (2020), as well as “Judas and the Black Messiah” (2021).
