Korean Film Night: Yoga
You’d never guess it was almost Halloween as this week’s Korean Film night features, oh, well, yet another horror. This time it’s Yun Jae-yeon’s Yoga, concerning a girl who visits a mysterious yoga institute run by an ex-actress where her radically changed friend recommended for her to go. At the intensive training course the young yoga master, Nani, explains to her and four other girls that only one person can master the course and successfully discover the secret of immortal beauty. Of course, there has to be a catch…
The film stars Eu-gene, Cha Soo-yeon, Park Han-byul, Jo Eun-ji, Lee Young-jin, Kim Hye-na, and Hwang Seung-eon, and will be screened this Thursday evening at 7pm, 20 October. Screenings are free but places must be booked in advance. Note that visitors cannot be admitted after 7.10pm.
See the official KCCUK website for more information.
There won’t be any free screenings during November, but that’s because the London Korean Film Festival gets under way from 3 November, opening with screening of one of the biggest Korean box office successes, War of The Arrows aka Arrow, The Ultimate Weapon with Director Kim Han-min at the Odeon West End, Leicester Square.
The festival then moves onto the ICA with a look at the special relationship between the North & South with The Front Line, Dance Town, Yellow Sea and Poongsan as well as a number of great family and comedies in Sunny, Suicide Forecast, Leafie a Hen Into The Wild, Detective K and the Mise-en-scene Short Film Section. As well as the ICA the festival will host a number of free events at the KCCUK and a complete retrospective of director Ryoo Seung-wan which includes the Closing Gala The Unjust.
