Series Five - A Journey to the Wild Side: Epic Korean Cinema!

In 2012, The Korean Cultural Service debuted its first series on epic Korean cinema, and the response was unheard of! Well, we’ve heard your cries and are brining back our most popular series, so get ready to take a journey to the wild side with three all-new Korean epics!

Starting November 12th, join your friends from The Korean Cultural Service at Tribeca Cinemas for three modern masterpieces, and get swept up in the majesty and grandeur. A cold winter is coming, and you’re about to be transported into a world of action, crime, and non-stop thrills with three blockbusters epics that span centuries and unite a nation. With big budgets, big stars, and big stories… there’s only one word to describe this trio of stunning movies: EPIC!!!

FACE READER (2013, 139 min)

Nae-kyeong is the greatest face reader his kingdom has ever known, with the ability to see through people simply by looking at their faces. After an alluring courtesan proposes an offer, he moves from the mountains and into city Hanyang, in order to read faces in the courtesan house. Nae-kyeong quickly becomes the go-to face reader and is appointed to the King’s Inspection Board. During one inspection, Nae-kyeong finds out about Prince Su-yang’s plan to overthrow the throne of his nephew, but rather than telling the truth, Nae-kyeong decides to change his country’s destiny by changing what’s written on Su-yang’s face

The film will be shown in Korean with English subtitles.

The next free Korean Movie Night screening will be of THE GRAND HEIST (2012, 121 min, New York Premiere) on Tuesday, November 26th, 2013.
