Actors Lee Je-hoon and Park Eun-bin will co-host the opening ceremony of this year's Busan International Film Festival (BIFF), organizers said Sunday. The duo starred in SBS series "Secret Door" (2014) as husband and wife.
The 28th BIFF is set to kick off its 10-day run at the Busan Cinema Center on Oct. 4.
Lee rose to stardom after appearing in the 2011 films "Bleak Night" and "The Front Line." Since then, Lee has become one of the most versatile actors on both the small and big screens, appearing in "Architecture 101" (2012), tvN's "Signal" (2016), "Collectors" (2020) and Netflix's "Move to Heaven" (2021). Most recently, he starred in SBS drama "Taxi Driver 2."
Park, who debuted at the age of four as a child model, has appeared in a number of hit dramas, including JTBC drama "Youth" (2017), SBS dramas "Stove League" (2019) and "Do You like Brahms?" (2020).
She shot to global fame through her roles in KBS series "The King's Affection" (2021), which won Best Telenovela at the 50th International Emmy Awards, and ENA series "Extraordinary Attorney Woo" (2022), which won the Best Content and Best Actress awards at the fourth Asia Contents Awards.
This year's BIFF will include three special premieres ― director Baek Jong-yeol's "Believer 2," director Lee Chung-hyun's "Ballerina" and director Kim Chang-hoon's "Hopeless" ― under the Korean Cinema Today category.
