Korean Movie Screening & Social: The Beauty Inside
The Baltimore Korean Movie Series presents another modern classic of Korean cinema, the global hit romance with a supernatural twist The Beauty Inside, as the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. continues its regional outreach with a free series of milestone films at Parkway Theatre in Baltimore, in partnership with the Maryland Film Festival.
Imagine that as you awoke every day, your body, age, gender, and even nationality were totally new. How would you survive? For Woo-jin, this daily transformation is everyday life. His one constant is Yi-soo (Han Hyo-joo), the woman he loves. Meeting her is a challenge, but keeping her is even harder. How could anyone love such a fickle creature, unless they somehow knew the beauty inside?
Director Baek Jong-yeol’s The Beauty Inside (2015) was the surprise sleeper hit at Cannes, enrapturing audiences with its subtle charm and whimsical romance. Starring a stellar, diverse ensemble cast, the film earned Baek the Best New Director prize at the Daejong Film Awards.
Light Korean Food will be provided at 6:30 p.m. before the film is screened.
This film is not rated, but suitable for a general audience. 127 minutes. In Korean with English subtitles.
