A feast of Park Chan-wook


I’m a Cyborg, but that’s OK finally gets a UK theatrical release, prior to its release on Tartan DVD at the end of May. The film, which stars hallyu superstar Rain (Jeong Ji-hoon, 정지훈) and Im Soo-jeong (임수정), received its belated London premiere last year at the Korean Film Festival at the Barbican, and returns to the ICA in Pall Mall today for the rest of April.

Coinciding with the release,

  • The ICA is also showing the Vengeance Trilogy, Sympathy for Mr Vengeance, Oldboy (the film which really got director Park noticed outside Korea) and Lady Vengeance (above, left to right, with Park on the extreme right)
  • Lady Vengeance will be getting a separate screening at the Roxy Bar and Screen in Borough High Street on 9 April. It will be followed by a discussion led by Mark Plaice from SOAS.
  • There’s an interview with Park Chan-wook in Electric Sheep magazine

Maybe see some of you at the Roxy.
