"Dasaepo Naughty Girls" ("Dasepo Girl") ( Tasepo Sonyo), an unconventional high school comedy directed by Lee Jae-young, has been invited to the prestigious 57th Berlin International Film Festival in February next year.

The film, based on a popular Internet comic by Chae Jung-taek or better known by his penname B-rate Dal-gung, will be screened at the Panorama section of the Berlinale. The film festival will run Feb.8-18.

E's film, which stars young actors such as Kim Ok-bin, Park Jin-woo and Lee Kyun, is about high school students and teachers who enjoy free sexual relations portrayed with colorful and quirky images.

This is the second time E's film has been invited to the Panorama section of the Berlin International Film Festival. His film "Untold Scandal", which stars Bae Yong-joon and Jeon Do-youn, was shown at the 2004 film festival.

The Panorama section features films from both well-known and new directors from around the world in an attempt to show the current trends in art-house and independent cinema.

The 57th Berlin International Film Festival is considered to be one of the top three film festivals around the world, after the Cannes and Venice film festivals.

Last February, actress Lee Young-ae was part of the official jury for the film festival.
