February events 2012

E J-yong's Actresses
E J-yong’s Actresses

Sadly, the big event scheduled for this month, the appearance of StorySeller and Choi Soo Min at a Camden club, has been postponed possibly until later this year. Shame. But looking on the bright side, E J-yong, director of one of my favourite films – An Affair (1998) – will be in town later in the month. And don’t forget to get your applications in for the KCC’s K-pop culture academy by 15 February
