For the Opening Gala, we present Kundo: Age of the Rampant on Thursday, 6th November at Odeon West End. Directed by Yoon Jong of The Unforgiven, Nameless Gangster with his intention of making an action blockbuster that makes your hear reacts first. This film portrait a Robin Hood-like righteous outlaw called ‘Kundo’ of Joseon dynasty going after corrupt officials in the period. At the Opening Gala, we will be joined by Director Yoon as well as Actor Gang Dong Won, who played the main role as a cold-blooded yet a sympathetic villain, Jo Yoon.

For our Closing Gala, we present Revivre, the 102nd film by Im Kwon-taek on Saturday, 15th November at Odeon West End.

This film, according to Director IM, is a adaptation of a novel by Korean author Kim Hoon and through this film he wanted to step further as it contemplates the fundamental questions of life, death and sexuality. Especially, Director Im wanted to reveal the pain and love embedded in one’s heart through. And ultimately feel ‘we all live like that’. This film starrs by Actor Ahn Sungki, a Korea’s Most Beloved Actor through ‘meticulously calculated performances, detailed preparation and the confidence to continuously reinvent himself through roles’. Actor Ahn will be joined at the Closing Gala Premiere of and talks with UK audience.

We truly look forward to seeing you all at the London Korean Film Festival 2014.
