[News] Goo Hye Sun’s movies to have special screening at JIMFF
Goo Hye Sun‘s full-length film ‘Peach Tree’ and short film ‘Fragments of the Memories‘ will be shown at Jecheon International Music & Film Festival (JIMFF).
The 8th JIMFF will be held from August 9th through the 15th at Chungbuk in Jecheon. As Asia’s very first music & film festival, JIMFF strives to introduce a variety of film and music to the public, and is successfully drawing the attention of movie-goers in Korea. With this year’s slogan, ‘Just One More Step‘, the JIMFF is displaying commitment to evolving into a more competitive film festival.
This is not the first time that Goo Hye Sun has had a special screening at JIMFF. This is her second visit to JIMFF after her first featured film ‘Magic‘ was put on display at the 6th JIMFF.
Her full-length film ‘Peach Tree‘ drew much attention due to the cast line-up of Jo Seung Woo, Ryu Duk Hwan, and Nam Sang Mi, and also for it’s plot of a mutated man who has one body and two faces. The film gained further interest after previously being acknowledged at the 16th annual Busan International Film Festival and is expected to be released this October.
On the other hand, Goo Hye Sun’s short film ‘Fragments of the Memories‘ is a short 3D movie which in detail expresses the character’s emotions as he reminisces of the past treasured moments in his life. Actor Yoo Seung Ho takes the lead in this fim, remarkably playing the role of a character that symbolizes treasured memories.
Actress Goo Hye Sun has used tracks she personally wrote and composed as the theme songs for these two films, giving the movies a much more lyrical appeal.
Goo Hye Sun has earned praise for her short films, ‘Lovely Assisant‘ & ‘You‘, along with her full-length film, ‘Magic’. She is making her debut as a director with ‘Lovely Assistant‘, which she received awards for at the Chinese Mobile Film Festival, as well as at the Japanese Short Shorts Asia Film Festival, Busan Asia Short Film Festival, and Buchun International Fantastic Film Festival. Her film ‘Magic‘ was also recognized at the Jeonju International Film Festival and the Tokyo International Film Festival, amongst others.
Meanwhile, this year’s JIMFF will be divided into 8 sections and will screen a total of 120 works from 27 countries. Goo Hye Sun’s two projects will be introduced in the ‘The Today of Korean Music Films’ section.
‘Fragments of Memories‘ will be shown on August 10th and 12th, while ‘Peach Tree‘ will be shown on August 14th.
Goo Hye Sun will also take some time to converse with the audience before the showing of ‘Peach Tree‘.
