EXO‘s Suho and actress Yoon Eun Hye are slated to attend the “20th Busan International Film Festival (BIFF),” which will host 304 films from 75 countries.
Suho has been invited for his debut film “Glory Day,” which will makes its premiere in the Korean Cinema Today section of the film festival. According to his management agency SM Entertainment, Suho hopes to attend but that will depend on his music schedule, “[Suho] will do his best to attend [BIFF] but depending on EXO’s schedule, it may not be possible.”
Yoon Eun Hye is also planning on attending the festival, but not as an actress but a director for her short film “Red Eye.”
On August 25, program manager Kim Ji Seok revealed at the press conference for “BIFF,” “One thing that stands out about Korean film is that there are many instances where actors debut as directors,” and “Jo Jae Hyun, Moon So Ri, and Yoon Eun Hye are representative figures.”
“Glory Day” is a drama about the friendship of four 20-year-old friends whose lives are never the same after a fateful night. The four leads of “Glory Day,” Ji Soo (“Angry Mom“), Suho, Ryu Joon Yeol (“Reply 1988“), and Kim Hee Chan (“Cheese in the Trap“), were selected after four months of open casting calls.
Yoo Eun Hye’s second directorial project, “Red Eye” will show in the Wide Angle short film section of “BIFF.”
