About the London Korean Film Festival

The London Korean Film Festival completed its 13th edition last year with over 60 exciting screenings of both new and classic films, reflecting the festival’s impressive growth over the last decade. The festival began in 2006, as a basic presentation of feature films from South Korea, and since then the festival has expanded and grown in all aspects – numbers of films, events, venues – to meet wider audiences. With the strong support of UK-based film professionals, each an expert in Korean film/world cinema, the festival will present a selection of films that we deem to represent the best of current Korean cinema: mainstream hits, art house gems, indie initiatives, archival classics, documentaries, short films, artist films and animations to name but a few. Our diverse programme will give audiences the opportunity to consider the wider issues that surround the film industries of both Korea and the UK today.

This year’s 14th London Korean Film Festival will again be a major leap forwards, with an even greater focus on accessibility and openness.

Korean Film at Edinburgh International Film Festival: 'Unstoppable' & 'Extreme Job'

04 June 2019

The Edinburgh International Film Festival will run from 19 - 30 June 2019 and includes two fantastic Korean film screenings in its line-up, the UK Premieres of Unstoppable and Extreme Job.

Unstoppable - UK Premiere

Mon 24 June 20:40 @ Odeon (Lothian Road, Edinburgh)

Wed 26 June 18:00 @ VUE (Omni Centre, Edinburgh)


A mild-mannered fish vendor turns to his violent past when his wife is kidnapped. This tightly paced South Korean action film (which has been favourably compared to Taken) features a larger-then-life performance by the charismatic Ma Dong-seok (billed here as Don Lee) as Dong-chul, a hard-working family man whose wife is kidnapped by sex traffickers. Bad move by them. He was not nicknamed ‘Angry Bull’ as a teenager for no reason and, with the aid of his best pal and a bumbling private detective, nothing will stop him. The action is brilliant, but Unstoppable also has great comedy moments and wonderfully loopy villain. [Rated 15]

Booking & Info:

Extreme Job - UK Premiere

Tue 25 June 18:00 @ Odeon (Lothian Road)

Thu 27 June 18:10 @ Odeon (Lothian Road)

This South Korean blockbuster, blending crime drama and comedy, is packed with smart and funny dialogue and a series of action moments. A blundering police narcotics team, led by Captain Ko (Ryu Seung-yong, Kingdom), faces disbandment. In a last-ditch attempt at a bust, they take over a fried-chicken shop directly opposite a possible drug den. Soon, the squad discovers they’re more successful at selling fried chicken than police work. With engaging characters, Extreme Job’s oddball storyline allows for plenty of intense fight scenes to complement the comedy. [15]

05 February 2019


Adapted from a short story by Haruki Murakami, Lee Chang-Dong’s BURNING follows the story of deliveryman Jongsu (Ah-In Yoo), who is out on a job when he runs into Haemi (Jong-Seo Jun), a girl who once lived in his neighbourhood. Friendly and flirtatious, she asks if he can look after her cat while she’s away on a trip to Africa, and he happily obliges.

On her return, she asks Jongsu to meet her at the airport- and promptly introduces him to Ben (Steven Yeun) - an enigmatic young man she met during her trip. As the group spend more time together, Jongsu slowly gets to know the inscrutable visitor – until one day, Ben tells him about his most unusual hobby... 

Lee Chang-dong's sublime mystery thriller can be seen in cinemas across the UK now.

Early Korean Cinema: Lost Films From the Japanese Colonial Period

Tickets are now available for the Early Korean Cinema events taking place at the Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK). All KCCUK events are free to attend (booking is required).

Angels on the Street + The Power of Sincerity + Q&A

Tuesday 12 February, 7pm

Angels on the Street follows the story of Myeong-ja and Yong-pil, two young siblings living on the streets of Seoul. Their lives are hard, and tragedy looks imminent but help is at hand in the form of kindly Priest Bang Soo-bin and his generous brother-in-law, Dr Ahn.


Straits of Chosun

Tuesday 19 February, 7pm

Straits of Chosun follows the lives of a young couple who are divided by both war and family. Seiki and Kinshuko may be in love but Seiki’s upper class family have rejected his lower-class wife and refuse acknowledge the marriage. When Seiki’s elder brother dies at war he feels honour bound to volunteer for the army in his stead. Left pregnant and alone, Kinshuko decides to also work for the war effort.


Dear Soldier + Chosun, Our Rear Base

Monday 25 February, 7pm

Dear Soldier is probably one of the most uncomfortable film to have survived from this period. One of a series of propaganda film designed to encourage young Korean men to join the army, the film presents an image of a benevolent and paternalistic Japan seeking to care for its colonial subjects. The film presents an idealised vision of the Japanese military experience which was, in reality, marked with abuse, brutality and racism.
