‘Korean Film Festival’ at Nat’l Museum from today

A three-day film festival titled ‘Korean Film Festival in Bangladesh’ is set to begin at Bangladesh National Museum in the capital’s Shahbag today.

Hosted by South Korean Embassy in Dhaka, the opening ceremony of the film festival, followed by screening of film ‘Extreme Job’, will be held at 4pm on the museum premises.

Later, a 2018 South Korean historical action film ‘The Great Battle’ directed by Kim Kwang-sik will be screened at 6pm.

‘Extreme Job’ is a South Korean action comedy film directed by Lee Byeong-heon, starring Ryu Seung-ryong, Lee Hanee, Jin Seon-kyu, Lee Dong-hwi and Gong Myung. The film was released on January 23, 2019.

The film shows a team of detectives start a chicken restaurant for an undercover drug-bust operation, but end up busier than ever when their chicken restaurant becomes famous for its food. But somehow, they found out that their chicken chain is distributing drugs, and they arrested drug gangs.

On the other hand, ‘The Great Battle’ is about the siege of Ansi Fortress and the epic 88-day battle that Yang Man-chun and his Goguryeo troops fought against 500,000 invading Tang dynasty men to defend it.
