As reported on Oriental Daily News, the movie, which stars Korean actor Lee Joon-ki and Chinese actress Zhou Dongyu, is also qualified to join the Jury Prize competition.
Stanley Kwan-produced movie, “Begin Again”, has been invited to participate in the upcoming Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BiFan) in South Korea.
The movie, previously titled “Under the Sicily Sun”, stars Lee as a Korean student who falls in love with a Chinese girl (Zhou) while on a trip to Shanghai. Their romance will take them all the way to Sicily, Italy.
According to director Lin Yu-hsien, he chose Lee, who had just ended his compulsory military service at the time, because of his natural boy-next-door charm.
The movie also marks Lee’s debut in Chinese film.
The 20th Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival will run from 21 to 31 July 2016.
