See Waikiki Brothers For Free At The KCCUK

There is just one month left in the Korean Cultural Centre UK's excellent Year Of The 12 Directors season.

The final director under the microscope is Lim Soon-rye as the KCCUK presents a series of her films throughout December, beginning with the 2001 drama Waikiki Brothers.

Waikiki Brothers is a band going nowhere. After another depressing gig, the saxophonist quits, leaving the three remaining members - lead singer and guitarist Sung-woo (Eol Lee ), keyboardist Jung-Suk (Park Won-Sang), and drummer Kang-Soo (Hwang Jung-Min), to continue on the road.

The band ends up at Sung-Woo's hometown, Suanbo, which was a popular hot spring resort in the '80s.

For Sung-Woo, the return home is filled with reservations of disappointments and a lost love.

He reunites with his old high school friends, the original Waikiki Brothers, and In-Hee (Hwang Jung-Min), his unrequited first love.

But the popularity of karaoke machines and DJs means that work is scarce and the band is fired from their gig at the hotel nightclub. Can Sung-Woo hang on to his dreams of making music?

Date: Thursday 6 December 2012, 6.30PM
Venue: The Korean Cultural Centre UK, Ground Floor, Grand Buildings, 1-3 Strand, London WC2N 5BW

The screening is free to attend but you must reserve a place which you can do right here.

On 20 December, the KCCUK will host a screening of Rolling Home With A Bull with Director Lim in attendance for a Q&A session after the movie.
