The 20th edition of the festival will be attended by popular personalities from South Korean entertainment industry. BIFF program manager Kim Ji Seok recently revealed the names of a few celebrities who will be attending the event.
"One thing that stands out about Korean film is that there are many instances where actors debut as directors. Jo Jae Hyun, Moon So Ri, and Yoon Eun Hye are representative figures," Soompi quoted him as saying.
There is also a buzz that EXO leader Suho and actress-director Yoon Eun Hye will attend the international film festival. While the Kpop star is expected to be present at the premiere of his debut movie "Glory Day", the actress is likely to attend the screening of her directorial venture "Red Eye".
