Iran's major annual film event, the 27th Fajr International Film Festival (FIFF), held in Tehran, will showcase a retrospective of contemporary Korean films. 13 features produced from the years 2000 through 2008 will screen in the Persian capital, January 30 to February 10, 2009.

Along with the retrospective, Jeon Soo-il's "With a Girl of Black Soil" (2007) was selected in the line-up of the Asian Cinema competition section. It will vie alongside North Korean film "A School Girl's Diary" by JAN In-hak and 11 other features from across Asia.

Among selections in the retrospective are titles such as Park Chan-wook's "JSA - Joint Security Area" (2000), Baek Woon-hak's "Tube" (2003), Kim Jee-woon's "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" (2008), Joo Kyeong-joong's "A Little Monk" (2002), and Shim Hyung-rae's "D-War" (2007).

In previous year's a number of Korean films have won awards at FIFF, including Yoon Jong-chan's "Blue Swallow", which won the Best Screenplay award for Asian Cinema in 2007 and Lim Tae-hyeong's "Little Brother", which won the Best Director award for Spiritual Cinema in 2006.
