Next Sunday, November 20th, The Korea Society and the Museum of the Moving Image will present The Yellow Sea as part of Korean Cinema Now at MoMI. The Museum of the Moving Image and The Korea Society have impressed growing audiences in 2011 with an exciting run of new work. In The Yellow Sea, director Na Hong-jin tells a tale where, to bring his wife to Yanbian (on the border of North Korea and China) and pay off his gambling debts, protagonist Kim Gu-nam takes on an assassination job.


After a disastrous mistake, he becomes the target. A part of the 64th Cannes Un Certain Regard line-up, The Yellow Sea follows in the steps of Na’s first action-filled crime thriller, The Chaser, which received high praises in Korea as an upgraded Korean action thriller and was screened in the non-competition category of the 61th Cannes festival.
