Yey! It’s the Korean Film Festival once again.  This year’s lineup is a mixture of different genres with romance, drama, comedy and thriller all thrown into the mix.  This year’s featured film during the premiere night at SM Megamall was A Werewolf Boy (늑대소년) starring the talented Song Joong Ki (Innocent Man/Nice Guy) and Park Bo Young (A Speedy Scandal).  However, my personal favorite was Sunny (써니) which I’ve seen more than twice. I just love the friendship that these girls portrayed plus it showed a little bit how Korea was during the 80s.

Other movies include the animated film Green Days (소중한 날의 꿈) with Park Shin Hye (Heartstrings) and Song Chang Ui voicing the lead characters, Masquerade (ê´‘í•´: 왕이 된 남자) with Lee Byung Hun (G.I. Joe), the horror- thriller Deranged (연가시) starring Kim Myung Min (Beethoven’s Virus) and Kim Dong Wan of Shinhwa, and the romantic-comedy Dancing Queen (댄싱퀸) featuring singer Uhm Jung Hwa and Hwang Jung Min.
