Gang Dong-won fest starts Saturday
Less than two months before he is to be released from the Army, there will be a film festival in Japan dedicated to the works of actor Gang Dong-won.
Distributor SPO announced that from Saturday until Sept. 28 “Gang Dong-won Festival 2012 - Missing You” will take place at Cinemart Roppongi in Tokyo.
The organizer said “Duelist” (2005), “M” (2007) “Maundy Thursday” (2006), “Jeon Woochi” (2009), “Haunters” (2010) and “Secret Reunion” (2010) will be screened.
The 31-year-old Hallyu actor’s return is highly anticipated, and recently, Gang won over another fan in fellow actor Lee Jong-suk. “When I saw his movies, I knew that I wanted to become an actor just like him,” said Lee during an interview last month with OSEN.
Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time that a film fest has been held in Japan to commemorate the works of a Korean actor.
In June, a similar event was staged to showcase the works of Kim Nam-gil, just one month before he was released from the Army.
