Ride the Korean wave at SM

Pinoys get a taste of Korean culture through the Korean Film Festival, happening at SM Cinemas nationwide.

The festival, which recently unreeled at SM Megamall, gives mallgoers a taste of Korean culture through movies.  

Kim Seong Ho, the director of the opening film, “How to Steal a Dog,” flew in to attend the event and gave film enthusiasts an insight to Korean filmmaking through a question and answer portion after the screening.

A joint project of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines and SM, the festival inspired a deeper understanding of Korea’s cultural diversity with this year’s theme, “Boldness of Youth,” in which five critically acclaimed films showed characters who face various challenges in their lives. 

The films in the 2017 Korean Film Festival – “How to Steal a Dog,” “My Brilliant Life,” “King of Jogku,” “Twenty,” and “Very Ordinary Couple” – will be screened during the festival for free in key cities in the Philippines.

The festival will run for five more weeks after its SM Megamall launch in the following cinemas: SM Lanang Premier in Davao, SM City Iloilo, SM City Cebu, SM City Clark in Pampanga, and SM City Dasmariñas.
