Cannes International Film Festival 2017 preview, from Kim Min-hee to Im Si-wan

2017/05/16 Source

The Cannes International Film Festival is one of the three greatest film festivals in the world and it opened its curtains on the 17th.

Five Korean movies are participating in the event and we took a look at stars who stepped on the Red Carpet.

First are director Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee. Two of Hong's movies have been invited to Cannes so they participated in all events for two days together.

Kim Min-hee was at Cannes last year as well for "The Handmaiden". She won the Silver Bear and the Best Actress award in the 67th Berlin International Film Awards.

Kwon Hae-hyo and Jo Yoon-hee-I are at Cannes for Hong Sang-soo's "The Day After - 2017". French actress Isabelle Huppert will be there for Hong Sang-soo's "Claire's Camera".

Many actors re-visited Cannes this year. Kim Ok-vin who was there in 2009 for "Thirst", returned with "The Villainess". Shin Ha-kyun also received the invite but he wasn't able to make it as he hurt his leg. Kim Ok-vin leaves for Cannes with director Jung Byung-gil, Sung Joon and Kim Seo-hyung.

"The Merciless" is also going to be at Cannes. Sol Kyung-gu is re-visiting for the first time in 17 years.

Im Si-wan needed the Military Administration's permission to go to Cannes as he is about to join the military but he won't be making it for the Red Carpet. Details about his flight haven't come up yet but Song Ye-joo will be with him.

"Okja" director Bong Joon-ho and a few of the Hollywood actors as well as Korean actors Ahn Seo-hyun and Byun Hee-bong will be on the Red Carpet.

This year's Cannes is going to be a plentiful one.
