Korean Film Festival at the Shangrila Cineplex

Korean culture has been ruling the airwaves not only here in the Philippines but also around the world. Just look at recent Hollywood films like "G.I. Joe" and "Speed Racer" which co-starred Korean-born actors (Ray Park and Rain respectively). Simply put, Korean Culture is what is "in" and it is out there to put its stamp to world culture. Although most Filipinos may not know this but Korean-Filipino diplomatic relations have been ongoing for 60 years already and as a celebration of this long-lasting and still ongoing mutual relation, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea presents the 2009 Koren Film Festival.

The 2009 Korean Film Festival will showcase the best Korean films from the past decade with a film ensemble composed of:
a. Old Boy(2003)
b. Barking Dogs Never Bite(2000)
c. Sa-kwa(2008) d. Beyond the Years(2007)
e. The Show Must Go On(2008)
f. Forbidden Quest(2006)
g. Driving with My Wife's Lover(2007)

ture with no extra cost. For more information regarding the 2009 Korean Film Festival schedule and film synopses, please refer to the image below or this link.

  1. Hi,
    That's a great festival. The Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the University of the Philippines Film Institute presented the Korean Film Festival 2007 with the theme "Varied Colors of Korean Cinema". Five films were shown from September 25-27 at the UPFI Cine Adarna. These are Ditto (2000), Joint Security Area (2000), My Heart (2000), Taeguk-Gi (2004), and Libera Me (2000). Among these, I was able to watch Ditto.
