K-drama film fest in PH homes

The Manila Times — 14.09.2020

For 21 days, Filipinos will be treated to movies of their favorite Korean stars who can now be considered as household names in the Philippines

Not even a pandemic can stop Korean Cultural Center (KCC) in the Philippines from putting together its most sought-after annual spectacle for the Korean cineastes. This year though, in order to ensure all the K-Culture fans’ safety while still sharing joy, entertainment and Korean culture, the Korean Film Festival (KFF) will be taking on a different shape. Instead of the usual packed, opening nights and the whole-cinema experience, the festival will be more intimate these days as it will be heading to everyone’s gadgets and televisions and into their own homes through its first-ever online run.

For 21 days, Filipinos will be treated to the favorite films of the stars who can now be considered as household names in the Philippines following the increased streaming of their shows “Crash Landing on You” and “Itaewon Class” during the last few months of quarantine. Aptly-themed “Celebrity Spotlight,” KFF 2020 will be headlined by no less than three of Korea’s biggest stars that have been well-loved by Filipinos these days — Hyun Bin, Son Yejin and Park Seo-jun.
