(Busan Movie Hall, opening ceremony venue) (22nd Busan International Film Festival) KBS Special live airing. The 22nd Busan International Film Festival live. I'm host Lee Inhye. Hello, I'm Kim Taehun. Hello, I'm film critic Choi Gwanghui. The 22nd Busan International Film Festival's opening ceremony will take place here soon. Excitement is already running high at the venue. The Busan Film Festival is Asia's top film festival. This year, I'm thrilled to see which movies will be screened and which stars will appear here, along with the excited fans in attendance. I feel two things whenever I'm here. I feel both the warmth of my hometown and also a sense of setting sail into an ocean of movies. I feel the same way here at the 22nd Busan International Film Festival. The 22nd Busan International Film Festival is aired through KBS and can be viewed all over the world. We're broadcasting live in over 100 countries through KBS World. We'll bring you the ceremony in vivid detail. It's getting dark here in Busan. The anticipation is building as night begins to fall. And I feel like certain people are heating up this place even more. I'm referring to the stars in attendance. Let's see what reporter Kim Miju has to say. Ms. Kim Miju? I'm Kim Miju, here on site. Numerous actors and directors are waiting here before stepping onto the red carpet. I'll convey all the details from here. The first person I'll talk to is famous actor Shin Seongil. Hello. You're in charge of Korean movies here today. How do you feel? I'm 80 years old now. According to Korean age, I'm 81. I could have died a long time ago. Since people live to age 100 nowadays, although it feels late to do this, I also think it's the perfect age to do it. I'm happy to have this role. I'm very happy. You seem happy. Who is this lovely lady next to you? I'm his granddaughter. - My daughter's daughter. / - I see. How do you feel being here with your grandfather? It's a huge honor. I bet. In terms of Korean film, you're living history. You've helped many younger actors. Do you want to tell them anything? When I acted, it was the 1960s, and we didn't do silent films, but audio and video weren't recorded at the same time, so it's different from today. But we worked hard. Just like how handmade products are worth more, movies made in the 1960s are like handmade products. The mechanisms today are different, and I can't forget the 1960s, the era when I did most of my work. Looking through films on the list, I was the lead in 506 of them. 506 films is an impressive feat. And eight films were chosen this time. The programmers worked hard. In the pamphlet, there's 55-year-old history. I was moved seeing them listed and felt like I'd worked hard. I paid a lot of taxes! I'm proud of being so patriotic. We look forward to your future works. Thank you for the interview today. That was Shin Seongil and granddaughter Park Jiyeong. I'll be back later. I'm Kim Miju at the Double Cone carpet. Hearing Shin Seongil's words of wisdom and seeing the red carpet, I can feel the heat rising in here. 300 films from 75 countries will be screened here. What makes these films so special? Overall, the focus is on Asian films. Looking at the trends, many are Asian films. More films from Taiwan and Hong Kong than before. As for Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the greater China area excluding the mainland, 20 films were selected. It's unprecedented. Many Taiwanese and Hong Kong directors usually go to mainland China, so we're able to see new directors filling their spots quite nicely. Hong Kong film "Somewhere Beyond the Mist" and Taiwanese film "The Last Verse" will be screened. Hong Kong movies were most popular in Korea in the 1980s and 90s. Perhaps they'll become popular again in 2017. But this is Busan. People here are more interested in Korean film. What's special about the Korean films? Starting with "Glass Garden," 30 movies will be screened. To sum up what's special about the Korean films, they're a mix of rookie and veteran directors. 16 movies are in the Panorama section. Over half of these are unreleased. Jeon Sooil started as an actress. Pang Eunjin also has a film. We also have some films from newer directors. In the Korean short film category, we had preliminaries for the first time. So expectations are high for solid works. We're here enjoying this festival, but we do have some bad news to share. In May, the passing of organizer Kim Jiseok brought great hardship to many of the people working here. There's an event for him, right? He passed away during the Cannes Film Festival back in May, saddening many in the industry. In his memory, the Jiseok Award will be granted this year. Kim Jiseok worked on a certain project with great zeal. It was called Platform Busan. It was a place for independent filmmakers to talk. This platform begins this year at this festival. He has physically left us, but his spirit lives on at the Busan International Film Festival forever. There is such a wide variety of programs that I'll have a lot of fun this time. We have to bring up the red carpet. It's the jewel of the opening ceremony. With the opening ceremony before us, many stars are arriving one by one. Let's go to the red carpet. Who's coming? It's Kim Dongho, the festival board president and festival commissioner Kang Suyeon. Many are greeting the audience on the red carpet. He's greeting guests as the head of the festival. That's SHINee's Minho. He started as a singer, but now he's very active as a film and drama actor. He's an example of a great idol-actor. An acting idol. He starred in "Derailed" with top actor Ma Dongseok last year. - We should call him Choi Minho. / - Right. He's most beloved by the younger attendees. He seems to be that kind of guest. That's why he was greeted with roars from the crowd when he arrived. I don't think this person is in the film industry. - She is. / - She is? She does comedy, TV, and dramas. - She's Kim Hyeonsuk. / - And Seo Gapsuk. They appeared in the film "America Town." Kim Hyeonsuk started out as a comedian but has solidified her place as an actress. Yeah. Seo Gapsuk was most active in 1990s films, bringing us some great acting. She hasn't been on this red carpet in a while. We'll be very moved by her. There are many foreign actors who come to the festival as well. As the closest country to us, Japan has many actors who walk the red carpet here. Some haven't arrived yet, like Aoi Yu. Famous stars, such as Miho Nakayama of "Love Letter," are expected to come today. As we stated earlier, since many Chinese films are screening here, many Chinese stars are expected to attend the festival this year. I think he's an event organizer. You can see many actors and organizers at the festival, but don't forget about the dresses. - That's right. / - Sure. It's like a housewarming event. They're affectionate right at the entrance. We're watching the guests be greeted. The crowd tonight is simply huge. It certainly is. It's a bit chilly today. Despite that, many Busan residents and other attendees have come to the festival. Miho Nakayama is finally here. The heroine of "Love Letter." That's a Korean actor, Kim Jaewuk, linking arms and arriving with her. They were in the same film, "Butterfly Sleep," which will be screened here. Director Jeong Jae-eun cast them. It is a joint Korea-Japan production, and star Japanese actress Miho Nakayama worked with Kim Jaewuk. The fans are raucously greeting them. They sure are. We're filming live outside and can hear nothing but the screams of the crowd. Director Jeong Jae-eun's film "Butterfly Sleep" is in the Gala Presentation category. That's a special category. I see. It'll be screened in the Gala Presentation category. I'm curious to see how well these two stars, famous in their respective countries, acted in the film, and how they'll look in it. Hearing that, I can't wait to see the film. Park Sungwoong already arrived. He was in the film "Method" and is going to meet the crowd soon. The movie Park Sungwoong appeared in was made by actress-turned-director Bang Eunjin. "Method" is her latest work. He acted along with Oh Seungeun. They're considered method actors. Oh Seungeun began as an idol singer, and the two of them showed us deep emotional delivery in fine detail in the film. That's Yu Inna. Sorry, I meant Yu Inyeong, who was in "Misbehavior." That was director Kim Taeyong. He just arrived. Seeing the two walk in together, the actors on either side look huge. Lee Wongeun played the role of the student in "Misbehavior." The woman there is Lee Wongeun. Yu Inyeong is walking in by her side. The original lead was supposed to be Kim Haneul. She was supposed to be the host for the Busan International Film Festival this year, but she is pregnant and can't walk the red carpet. The baby is good news, but it's unfortunate that we can't see her here at the festival. Korean and foreign stars and directors are streaming into the venue. The weather is a bit chilly, but the atmosphere in here is warm. It was windy during the rehearsal, but now that the real event has begun, there's a feeling of warmth. It's raining outside, but as we showed you earlier, the hall of the venue has a ceiling. It's set up so that we can avoid the rain. Fans can watch the films in an outdoor setting without getting wet. Rookie actor Go Wonhui just arrived. At the opening ceremony this year, about 200 stars, both from Korea and abroad, will walk the red carpet. We just mentioned Go Wonhui walking the red carpet, and whenever stars enter, we'll check out the red carpet and introduce them. Let's talk about the opening film. What film was chosen to open the festival? The opening film for this year's festival is "Glass Garden" by director Shin Suwon. Its explosive popularity resulted in all the seats being sold out. Explosive is the right word. Before the opening ceremony itself begins, we're going to have some interviews about the ceremony with reporters. Let's check out the opening film "Glass Garden," which is massively popular. "Glass Garden" is a mystery film about suspicions about a bestselling novel and tragic secrets. The lead, Jaeyeon, is a secret scientist who believes humans can use photosynthesis. Moon Geunyoung is the lead actress. Jaeyeon lives in isolation in a forest greenhouse and researches artificial blood with chlorophyll. However, a novelist happens to witness her life and writes a novel about her. The novel is about a girl who bleeds green blood. The novel becomes a bestseller, and shocking secrets then unfold surrounding Jaeyeon's life and the book. "Glass Garden" is notable for its casting, dreamlike forest setting, and director's unique vision. Hearing that, I can't wait to see it. Moon Geunyoung hasn't acted in a film for a while. I can't wait to see how her acting has changed. She took a break from acting in February due to acute compartment syndrome and underwent several surgeries. This is her first film since her recovery. Jaeyeon, played by Moon Geunyoung, is a dreamlike character with many secrets. Her character is a mix of purity and cruelty. The character is unique in Korean cinema, and Moon Geunyoung was attached to the role. She said it was difficult to readjust after being in character for so long. Director Shin Suwon, who's holding the megaphone, is rather unfamiliar to us, but he's known as a talented director who's received awards at many film festivals. Shin Suwon has a unique background. He used to be an elementary school teacher. Really? But he wanted to make movies so badly that he quit and enrolled in a film school to study, eventually debuting as a director. His films, including "Pluto" and "Madonna," have received awards at Cannes, Berlin, and other film festivals around the world. His movie "Pluto" was screened at the Busan International Film Festival in 2013. Festival director Kang Suyeon said that "Glass Garden" is a unique film that can't be described in broad strokes. What moved him? "Glass Garden" raises poignant questions about the coexistence of humans with each other and with nature. It's a mystery-fantasy film, and the forest scenes are mysterious and remarkable. He mentioned that the process of melding science with art was "bizarre." The plot progresses slowly so the story can be followed. For this reason, viewers are slowly drawn deeper into the film. This lets viewers get more absorbed in the film. As the time for the opening ceremony approaches, the mood here is heating up. Let's check out the red carpet together. Who's coming in right now? Asian actors are making their entrance. We were at the front conducting name checks until last year. Now they're being treated more respectfully. We're viewing them from far away. There's nothing more enthusiastic than the applause and cheers from the crowd when these stars enter. It's beautiful to see the citizens here cheering and clapping even when foreign actors or producers they don't know walk past. Inside the hall, since they're all colleagues, rather than saying that stars have gathered, it's more like a meeting of former colleagues. Here's another thing for us to see. Director Oliver Stone is here. Oliver Stone is a panelist for the New Currents category. He directed the film "Snowden." He's a top Hollywood director who has shown us his potential power. He's brought us politically-tinged movies since the 1980s, with "Platoon" and "JFK." He's a big-name director known worldwide. I remember "Born on the Fourth of July." Right next to him is Korean director Jang Seonwu. It's been so long. You're watching the New Currents director and panelists arriving on the red carpet. The New Currents category is a competitive category at the festival. Only New Currents is competitive. Five people are tasked with judging the New Currents movies. They are directors Oliver Stone, Bahman Ghobadi, French director Agnès Godard, and Lav Diaz, who is hugging Oliver Stone. He's a Filipino director. Next to him is director Jang Seonwu. His last work? "Resurrection of the Little Match Girl." I hope to see him more often. He brought us many groundbreaking and sensational films in the 1990s, including "A Petal," "Lies," and more. He was called a social commentary director. He's a very famous director. They're taking their time entering, enjoying the opening of the festival. The New Currents judges are from various countries and fields. As we stated earlier, Oliver Stone is one of the best directors in Hollywood. Bahman Ghobadi is known for "A Time for Drunken Horses" and other films based on novels, and is a top Iranian director known worldwide. Agnès Godard worked mainly with director Claire Denis. The person who just passed by is actor Jo Seongha. Jo Seongha. His short hair makes quite the impression. He's very active in dramas and film. And he's come to the festival. He'll be in the film "Taklamakan," which will be screened here. I see Park Heesoon. She appears in the film "A Haunting Hitchhike" by director Jeong Heejae. It's starring No Jeongeui, Kim Goeun, and Park Heesoon. I remember Miho Nakayama as being born in 1970. I don't think you need to bring that up. She's in her 40s but looks as young as ever. An actress' age... This is known as one of the film festivals that foreign stars most want to attend. It is? Festival board president Kim Dongho really flexed his capabilities. In the early days of film festivals, he sat with those in the film industry on the streets of Nampo-dong and drank rice wine, creating a new atmosphere, and was praised by foreign and Korean directors and actors alike. Kim Raewon is right there. She's here for the film "RV: Resurrected Victims." I can't to see Kim Raewon and Kim Haesuk's onscreen chemistry. "RV: Resurrected Victims" just came out. They play a mother and son in the film. It's about chasing down a mother who died and then came back to life. And this is the home turf of - director Kwak Gyeongtaek. / - True. He's receiving tons of applause. "Friend" brought director Kwak Gyeongtaek into the limelight, and it takes place in Busan, so from his point of view, it's even more moving to have his film screened at the Busan International Film Festival. Jo Jinwoong is here, too. He's one of the hottest actors nowadays. He's lost a lot of weight. He was in the movie "Man of Will." His jawline is something else. When Jo Jinwoong was playing supporting roles, he had the feel of a supporting actor, but now he's dominating as a lead actor, so he exudes a lead actor feel. No matter what the role, he always fits it perfectly, and that's not easy. He's really an actor-like actor. Actors and producers from abroad are arriving as well. Many foreign stars are here, too. It's no exaggeration to say that over half the stars here are from abroad. Many movie stars come to Busan. That's how globally recognized the Busan International Film Festival is. It's a sign of the event's popularity. This is the biggest film festival in Asia. Nobody can contest that. It's the prime film festival of Asia. Many foreign stars recognize it. Aside from the New Currents panelists, many foreign filmmakers are in attendance. Mainly, Berlin Film Festival director Christof Teriete, and Cannes consultant Pierre Rissient. Sochi Film Festival director Sitora Alieva, known as a giant in the film festival industry, and other major figures, have all come to Busan. Hearing the cheers, it seems another star is here. It's Yoon Kyesang. He appeared in "The Outlaws" with Ma Dongseok. I believe it's no. 1 in the box office currently. He's removed his label of singer and fully entered the world of acting. He's a solid actor. He's greeting a major film industry elder. The people entering are being very polite. But the actors... Moon Sori has just arrived. She's known as an actress, but just debuted as a director. / - Yes, recently. She made her directing debut in "The Running Actress." Moon Sori's real husband, Jang Junhwan, played the role of the husband in the film. After firmly refusing to be in it, at Moon Sori's request, he ended up doing the role. When an actor enters, it seems like they must be moved greeting such a senior actor. It must be one of the happiest moments as an actor. That's Son Yejin. Son Yejin was most recently in "Princess Deokhye," although the film was released a while ago. That film was a box office hit. She's very active nowadays. She hasn't been in a film in a while. We're glad to see her here. I remember that she came here last year. Didn't she? I was doing a live broadcast here, but I don't remember. You were? As we focus on some people, we can end up missing others. That's Shin Seongil. He's searching for something. Song Ilgook. With his twins. I mean triplets. He's here with Daehan, Minguk, and Mansae. They've grown so much. I personally hope that one of them will become an actor, just like Song Ilgook. I think the actors are almost finished walking the red carpet. There's not much time left until the real event, so we'll start slowly wrapping things up now. Before the celebratory performance to kick off the festival, let's go back to reporter Kim Miju and see what it's like over there. I'm Kim Miju, at the Double Cone area. All the stars of the film industry are here. I'm really enjoying the eye candy. One person in particular caught my eye. Let's talk with actress Moon Sori. - Hello. / - Hello, nice to meet you. How does it feel to be at the festival? Whenever I come to film festivals, I'm always happy to see great films. I get very excited. You're so beautiful... - No, you are. / - Thank you. Do you have a style concept for the red carpet? Just something that suits my position and age. You're quite elegant. Busan is your hometown. In addition to that, the festival is held here. I'm thrilled my debut film was chosen for the festival, and I seem to have a special connection to Busan. So I felt I had to come this year as well. Please say something to your fans. I'll come back to you with even better works. Thank you, and enjoy the festival. Thank you for the interview. That was actress Moon Sori. I'm Kim Miju at the Double Cone area. Thanks for the Double Cone interview. Since a lot of stars entered during that interview, the red carpet introductions are nearly over, but some stars are coming in late. It's raining, so it seems that's why the red carpet is taking so long. Wow, An Seonggi just arrived. Yes, he's walking in now. And Kim Jaehong, who was in the "Reply" drama series with An Seonggi. Kim Jaehong? That's An Jaehong. An Jaehong and Lee Som. They were both in the movie "Microhabitat." That film is being screened at the festival, so they're both here on the red carpet. "Microhabitat" stars Lee Som and An Jaehong. Nowadays, there's no way to meet an industry veteran. It's harder and harder to see them in films. So it's great to see An Seonggi at film festivals. Plus Shin Seongil and board president Kang Suyeon. As I mentioned earlier, I was here last year, and this year, so many more stars have come to this festival. I can say that with confidence. I see Jo Jinwoong and Yoon Kyesang on the screen. This film festival is a space for them all to enjoy themselves. Son Yejin is waving to fans at the photo wall. That white dress looks great on her. I wore a white dress today, too, but I can't compare to her. Your dress is beautiful, too. When many stars come to the opening ceremony, the atmosphere heats up, so even if they're not in any films being screened, we're thankful that many actors come anyway. Director Im Kwontaek is entering, among others. We interviewed actor Shin Seongil earlier, but Im Kwontaek is also a living legend of Korean film. In the 1970s and 80s, and even today, his films have greatly influenced Korean society. Song Ilgook is with Daehan, Minguk, and Mansae and is passing the photo wall right now. It must be so meaningful to walk the red carpet - with his children while he acts. / - True. The crowd is watching those three troublemakers. The triplets are watching the crowd as well. They're enjoying the red carpet in their own way. I get so nervous on the red carpet. But Mansae isn't nervous at all, and he's enjoying it. Moon Sori posed at the photo wall and is now entering. She's wearing a simple black outfit. You'd expect actresses to dress up in a flashy way, but Moon Sori is dolled up neatly. In past years at this festival, many actresses showed off flamboyant dresses, but nowadays, their face is the jewel. That's why their dresses are relatively plain. Actress' dresses on the red carpet are subject to trends as well. The hosts of today. Jang Donggun and Yoona are here. The original hosts were Jang Donggun and Kim Haneul, but Haneul's role was given to Yoona. I can't wait to see them and their chemistry. They were in a TV drama together in the past that I really enjoyed. I wonder how their hosting will be. We'll be able to witness it soon. Jang Donggun has been at the festival before, when his work was the opening film. It was "The Coast Guard," directed by Kim Kideok. And director Jang Jin's "Good Morning President." He was here at the festival for those two films. I remember. So being the host here this year is a new type of connection for him. It's safe to say he is the Busan International Film Festival man. Yoona debuted in idol group Girl's Generation but is now a full-fledged actress. She was in the film "Confidential Assignment." Her character has a crush on Hyun Bin, who plays a North Korean spy. She plays the daughter of Yu Haejin. The seating is full now. We've been waiting since 3 p.m. to conduct the opening ceremony. Despite the rain beginning around then, many audience members waited in a long line to enter the hall. Since hosts Jang Donggun and Yoona have entered, the film festival will begin soon. The opening ceremony will start after a performance. We can anticipate that. It's far more glamorous than last year. I think the atmosphere is more heated. Organizations and scale do influence the festival, but strong connections of stars and producers also have a major impact. There are Kim Hojeong and Kwon Haehyo. They're both here as Acting Award judges. The strong friendships of actors bring a lot of them to Busan for the festival. Board president and former director Kim Dongho, and current festival director Kang Suyeon, will both resign at the end of this festival. This will be their final festival, so it seems that many foreign stars have personally come to see them off well, seeing this year's festival as a must-attend. An Seonggi passed the photo wall and is taking a seat. He's walking alongside Minister Do Jonghwan. They're dazzling. It's unusual to see Jang Donggun as a host on any program. That's why I'm looking forward to him hosting the Busan International Film Festival. This is not a common occurrence. Especially since he acts so much. He was recently in the film "VIP." He's shaking hands with audience members. It's not easy to meet an actor. But here, attendees can meet actors and even shake hands with them, so it's a very meaningful night. Those audience members have made a great memory through this festival. The red carpet entrance is now over. Now we'll have a riveting congratulatory performance to kick off the opening ceremony. We have some time left before the performance. First, let's introduce the recommended films. Top directors from east and west are all here, as well as rookie directors, so there's a wide variety of films to see. That's right. Choi Gwanghui, can we see in advance which films will be screened? Befitting Asia's top film festival, many acclaimed movies are here. The category "A Window on Asian Cinema" includes 50 films. Examining the films at this festival, one can observe the flow of Asian films. My favorite films are Asian films. This festival is basically the only opportunity to see Asian films that aren't Korean. Most films screening in theaters are American or Korean. Thus, this festival is the only chance in Korea to see films from other countries. "A Window on Asian Cinema" features many gems this year. We took a lot into consideration and only chose the best of the best. Let's check them out. First is an Indonesian movie. It's called "Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts." It was filmed on the scenic Indonesian island of Sumba. It tells of the revenge of a woman who was sexually assaulted. Critics said that it birthed a new genre in Indonesian cinema. Mouly Surya, the director, had attended the Busan International Film Festival Film Academy. This film was recommended at Cannes. Japanese film "The Ringside Story" is about an unknown actor of 10 years whose girlfriend gets into wrestling and ignores him. Through a series of events, he ends up competing in the K1 competition. It is based on a true story and features actual wrestling and sparring athletes, giving viewers a lot to enjoy. But it's not just about sports. It's a warm-hearted story that tells of creating a world of pure passion through wrestling. Next is a Taiwanese movie. It's called "Fission Tango," and it's a noir film about organ trafficking. The human choices made while organ trafficking are compared, bringing out melodramatic and human elements. The flashy imagery makes it a must-see and makes "Fission Tango" truly enjoyable. Next up is also a Taiwanese film. It's called "Love Education." This is the closing film of the festival. It portrays the conflict and reconciliation of a dying elderly man, his wife, his second wife, and his daughter. Through the director's keen eye, the three women's lives are presented in vivid detail, and it was lauded for showing the pain of modern China. I've seen that director somewhere else before. I'll say it later. I'm most looking forward to the last film you showed. "Love Education." It was directed by Sylvia Chang, who actually started out as an actress. That's why I mentioned I'd seen her before. Some may remember her from 1980s Hong Kong films. She was in the "Aces Go Places" series as an unruly prosecutor. Now she's a recognized director. It was a textbook film that exemplified the Hong Kong action film wave of the time. While we were talking about the recommended films, the congratulatory performance has begun. Let's check it out. Ballerino Kim Yonggeol's performance will kick off the festival's opening ceremony. We don't see them on stage yet... Now they're starting. Classic ballet moves are combined with modernized Michael Jackson moonwalking and Korean dance, along with the Spanish tango, to create a global performance. This is the praise it received. Ballerino Kim Yonggeol is from Busan. He must be more attached to the performance since this is his hometown. (Opening ceremony congratulatory performance) (Kim Yonggeol dance team with Ravel's "Bolero") (Kim Yonggeol dance team with Ravel's "Bolero") (The combination of Ravel's passionate "Bolero") (with ballet movies, Korean dance, and Spanish tango) (to create an intense and dazzling performance) (Kim Yonggeol dance team with Ravel's "Bolero") (The combination of Ravel's passionate "Bolero") (with ballet movies, Korean dance, and Spanish tango) (to create an intense and dazzling performance) The 22nd Busan International Film Festival Opening Ceremony. Now I feel like we've started for real. Ravel's "Bolero" was played to modern dance to begin the opening ceremony just now at the 22nd Busan International Film Festival. This festival not only features movies, but various other events as well. I'll sum them up. Director Seijun Suzuki's special exhibit was held on October 14th and 17th in the movie hall. Calling it Director Seijun Suzuki's special exhibit may not ring a bell for most people, so please introduce it to us. He's one of Japan's top directors. He's famous for Yakuza organized crime thrillers and passed away in February. He was over 90 years old. While passionately involved in film, he passed away in February, so we are specially commemorating him here. The special exhibit was created at this time for him. We have lots of films in similar genres. This festival is a rare opportunity to see director Seijun Suzuki's movies, which are unique and unfamiliar. Not many people in Korea know of Seijun Suzuki. But the reason we need to take an interest in him is because he was a major influence on directors Bong Junho and Park Chanuk. Before that, he also greatly influenced American director Quentin Tarantino. It's important to look at his films and observe the elements that influenced Bong Junho, Park Chanuk, and Tarantino so much. Inhye, if you don't return to Seoul today, you should check out the exhibit. I'm interested in the films, but I'm also interested in taking part in the special exhibits, so I'll be enjoying a lot here. Director Oliver Stone has prepared "Master Class." It'll open on Tuesday, October 17th at 4:30 p.m. in the movie hall. Please give us a short introduction of Oliver Stone. I mentioned him briefly earlier, but through "Platoon," "Born on the Fourth of July," and other works, his films have offered intense social commentary on American society. He recently made the film "Snowden," which was based on the true story of the government's mass collection of personal data. His films have often dealt with such heavy topics. It's incredible that we can directly hear from a great director like Oliver Stone at this festival, and it's an honor for those in attendance. If my memory serves me correctly, Oliver Stone's wife is actually Korean. So he may feel that this festival is extra meaningful. The atmosphere is heating up even more here at the 22nd Busan International Film Festival. Unfortunately, we have to end things here. How was it being here today? I was very excited. I felt that Korea had truly kicked off Asia's top film festival as we filmed live here. It baffled me that the weather got colder right as we came to Busan. So the actors on the red carpet really went through a lot of difficulty. Luckily, as the live broadcast began, the wind picked up, so it wasn't cold enough to worry about. I feel like it's the first good omen at this festival. You were here last year. How is it compared to last year? It was very windy, so my script blew away. Since it was airing live, I was in trouble. I'm just happy that we wrapped up without that happening. How should I put this? I really want to mention this. This festival went through the pain for two years because Busan city got into organizing the festival back then. And there was a lot of conflict, so it's true that for the past two years, many actors boycotted the festival. As stated earlier, after this festival, board president Kim Dongho and director Kang Suyeon are resigning, so we are starting a new chapter. And this is the final page of the old chapter. Film festivals are about variety. A prerequisite of variety is autonomy. We'll firmly plant roots so actors and audience members can act with true autonomy at the Busan International Film Festival, and we pledge to reestablish this festival's position as a hub of film in Asia. I had so much more fun hosting the Busan International Film Festival with you two this year. As an actress, I'm glad I could take part in such a large film festival. This was the opening of Asia's top film festival, the Busan International Film Festival. Many great programs will be held in the future at the Busan International Film Festival, so if you're not in Busan, we hope you'll hurry over here and watch the films and enjoy the events. This has been KBS coverage of the opening ceremony of the 22nd Busan International Film Festival. Thanks for joining us. (Produced by KBS Busan)
