The first film on the subtitled screenings list is the box office hit "Punch", directed by Lee Han. Currently at the top of the box office, the film stars Kim Yun-seok ("The Yellow Sea") as a high school teacher who helps his next-door neighbor and pupil, played by Yoo Ah-in ("Antique"), to get through his issues.
The independent film made its premiere at the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) and has gained word of mouth to take in over 4.2 million admissions since its release Oct. 20.
Punch is screening with English subtitles in four different theaters in Seoul.
The second subtitled film on the site is the animated feature thriller "King of Pigs" directed by Yeon Sang-ho. The film's voice acting cast most notably features Yang Ik-june, the director and star of "Breathless", Oh Jung-se from the feature films "Couples" and "Petty Romance", as well as Kim Hye-na from "Cafe Noir" and "Flower Island".
The King of Pigs also made its debut at the Busan film festival where it garnered much critical attention and picked up the Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema (NETPAC) Award as well as the Directors Guild of Korea (DGK) Award for best directing.
