The Choi Min-sik season continues at the KCC with Happy End this Thursday – a well-regarded film from 1999:
7pm, Thursday 9th December
Director: Jung Ji-woon
Cast: Choi Min-sik, Jeon Do-yeon
Certificate: 18 (South Korea)
Running Time: 99 mins
The Korean Cultural Centre UK Ground Floor, Grand Buildings 1-3 Strand, London WC2N 5BW

Happy End is about Bora (Jeon Do-yeon), a successful career woman who becomes involved with her destructive ex-lover, Kim. Bora’s home life is a snore: she’s mother to an infant child and her husband, Seo (Choi Min-sik) has lost his job, leaving Bora as the family’s sole breadwinner. It’s unclear if Bora is with Kim just for the sex or for the passion, both of which Seo seems incapable of giving. But it seems the jobless Seo hasn’t been just wandering around parks and reading romance novels as first thought; he knows something is going on, and he’s collecting evidence.
We hope you will join us for this night, the first in our ‘Korean Stardome: Choi Min-sik’ theme running from November into December. To reserve your place please rsvp to [email protected] or call +44 (0)20 7004 2600. Admission is free.
