This is the kind of news I like.

Kim Young-ha

This year the program of the Jeonju International Film Festival will include “short films based on Korean writers’ short stories, thereby creating opportunities for good Korean literature to be introduced overseas. The focus this year will be KIM Young-ha. KIM Young-ha’s novel, I have a right to destroy myself has been translated into several language and published in the U.S., France, Japan and Poland. [1] A JEON Soo-il film based on the novel was released in 2005 and he also took part in adapting the script for A Moment to Remember directed by John H. LEE. Director Daniel H. BYUN’s The Scarlet Letter and NO Zin-soo’s My Brother Came Back (working title) were also based on KIM’s original stories.”

Please bring the programme to London, along with Kim Young-ha.
