Bucheon Fantastic Film Festival

South Korea's largest annual genre film festival kicked off Thursday in Bucheon, just west of Seoul, featuring 290 films from 53 countries around the world.

The 22nd Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BiFan) will run till July 22 under the theme "Love, Fantasy and Adventure." The number of titles chosen to be shown during this year's event is similar to last year's 289 films.

Leading the 290 films will be the world premiere of South Korean directors Oh Seong-yun and Lee Chun-baek's animated feature film "Underdog" about the story of abandoned dogs.


'Sunset in My Hometown'

Hak-soo lives in a cheap, one-person room in Seoul juggling multiple part-time jobs. He is an aspiring rapper who makes his sixth attempt at finding fame through a TV audition show. Though he is already an independent musician with his own fan base in Seoul's youth hotspot, the Hongdae area, he seeks a higher stature.


'Along With the Gods'

Director Kim Yong-hwa of last year's box-office smash "Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds" said Friday that he doesn't sleep well these days, anxious of how the film's sequel that he also directed will be received.

"I'm deeply moved because the film was loved more than expected," Kim said during a news conference to promote the sequel at a Seoul theater. "Actually, this puts a great deal of pressure on me. I'm nervous because the post-production process has yet to be finished. I'm making efforts to finish it in a better way."
