See The Blue In You For Free At The Korean Cultural Centre

The Korean Cultural Centre continues it's screening program, Year Of The 12 Directors, in July with a retrospective on the works of Lee Hyeon-seung.

This Thursday, 19 July 2012, the KKCUK will be hosting a free screening of director Lee's 1992 film The Blue In You.

Two department store window display decorators find themselves to be perfectly matched professionally but, as they gradually fall in love, it becomes increasingly difficult for them to work well together.

Famous at the time for being one of the first feminist Korean movies, The Blue in You provides a splendid showcase for its lead actress, Kang Soo-yeon, teamed with the industry's biggest male star, Ahn Sung-ki.

Kang plays businesswoman Yu-rim, who has a strong-minded approach to both her career and her love life. When she meets photographer Ho-seok (Ahn), who is an equally uncompromising character, sparks fly.

Even though their viewpoints differ on almost every aspect of life, they can't seem to stay apart from each other and when Ho-seok goes to Italy to study, Yu-rim finds she can't get him out of her mind.

The screening is free but you must pre-book a place in advance. To do so, visit the KCCUK's website and click on the link to Korean Film Nights.

Date: July 19th 2012, 7.00pm
Location: Korean Cultural Centre UK, Grand Buildings, 1 - 3 Strand, London WC2N 5BW
