Ten films from South Korea, including 2010’s acclaimed “Poetry” and 2009’s Park Chan-wook vampire drama “Thirst,” will screen as part of the inaugural Look East: Korean Film Festival, which will take place at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre June 23-24, organizers announced Monday.
The lineup includes the 2005 film “A Bittersweet Life,” starring Lee Byung-hun, who will appear in person for a Q&A and who will be among the first Korean performers in the history of the legendary Hollywood movie palace to have his handprints and footprints added to the theater’s courtyard.
