The Korean Film Festival 2019 is coming to Abu Dhabi

Now that the weather is sweltering, taking a trip to the cinema is one of our favourite ways to stay cool and beat the heat in Abu Dhabi.

But during the Korean Film Festival 2019, we’ll have even more amazing movies to go and see.

Held at Vox Cinema at Yas Mall from June 26 to June 29, the festival is organised by Embassy of the Republic of Korea.

The packed schedule includes nine different films, all subtitled in English.

To attend each screening cost Dhs21 per person, so it’s about half the price of going to see one of the usual Hollywood hits.

The festival opens with Innocent Witness, a drama about a lawyer and his relationship with a teenage witness with autism.

Star of the film Lee Kyu-hyung will also be making a guest appearance before the screening to take part in a brief Q&A and signing event.

The signing event is free and priority will be given to ticket holders.

Other highlights include Korean film Romang, and the Emirati epic tale Nearby Sky.
