Four films and two shorts from South Korea showcased at Terracotta festival

The Terracotta Far East Film Festival, London’s premier festival celebrating Asian film, returns to the Prince Charles Cinema and will run from 12th-15th April 2012.
 
Terracotta Far East Film Festival is an annual event which aim is to widen the audience for Far Eastern film in the UK and to further promote this genre to existing film fans.
For this year’s 4th edition, the festival aimed to emphasize the leading position and diversity of Korean cinema and will feature a panel of 4 films from different genre including blockbuster “My Way, Kim Ki-duk‘s “ARIRANG – Movie” and a Double Bill of Korean hit comedies.
For the occasion, we are launching a new Korean Breakfast Club and Terracotta Festival are proud to host the European premiere of “Dancing Queen” and International Premiere of “Couples” where there will be kimbap on sale in the intermission.
 
We are delighted to be able to show “Dancing Queen” so close after its successful release earlier in February and those familiar with the K-pop scene will enjoy a few cameo from the music industry such as Singer Lee Hyo-lee and Leessang member Gil have a cameo as judges on the reality talent show “Superstar K”.
 
Both comedies are very different and unique:

Four films and two shorts from South Korea showcased at Terracotta festival

“Dancing Queen” is a feel-good comedy and Korea’s first big movie hit of the New Year that satirizes the reality of Korean politics and cheerfully depicts the characters’ struggles as they attempt to realize their dreams.
A comedy about a middle-aged married couple who each pursue their lost dreams, with two very talented main leads: Hwang Jeong-min as a Seoul mayoral candidate and Uhm Jung-hwa as his wife who still hasn’t given up her dream to become a singer.

“Couples” is a multi-character, multi-stranded comedy, starts with a distraught Yoo-suk, after his girlfriend Na-ri suddenly disappears in a café. Desperate, he enlists his friend, a private detective to help find her. While searching for her he finds himself constantly bumping into a mysterious girl, Ae-yeon. As the two of them strike up an unlikely rapport, his estranged girlfriend Na-Ri makes a sudden appearance…
 
From director Jeong Yong-ki (“Descendants of Hong Gil-dong, “Dll Master” and the “Marrying the Mafia” franchise), “Couples” is a smart comedy that tracks various couples and their personal struggles, love and destiny through a tapestry of narratives that are, in some ways or another, linked in comical and serendipitous ways.
 
“For those who like cleverly constructed, boxes-within-boxes light comedies, “Couples” is the charm” FILM BUSINESS ASIA
