Korean film "Season of Good Rain", starring Korean actor Jung Woo-sung and Chinese actress Gao Yuanyuan, has been selected as the closing film for a Korean film festival to be held in Los Angeles next month.

"Season of Good Rain", by famed directed Heo Jin-ho, will close the four-day long Korean Film Festival in Los Angeles (KOFFLA) on March 7. The fest is set to open with Korean film "Le Grand Chef - Kimchi War" starring Kim Jung-eun and Jin Goo.

Main features to be screed at the fest include "A Million", "Memories of Murder", "The Naked Kitchen", "The Righteous Thief" ("Descendants of Hong Gil-dong"), "The Scam", "Secret - 2009", "The Sword with No Name" and "White Night" while three films by director Ryoo Seung-wan will show in as part of a special segment focusing on the filmmaker.

Films such as "Breathless", "Daytime Drinking", "Members of the Funeral", "The Pit and The Pendulum", "The Room Nearby" and "Rough Cut" will be shown in the category of 'First Directors' Pieces' which focuses on pictures by new directors.

The KOFFLA showcases over 70 films, including Korean blockbusters, various Korean-American features and shorts, as well as the highlights from last year's Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) and Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival.

Chang Wha-chung, famed director and one of the pioneers of the Asian action genre, is the director of the ceremony.
