Not even a pandemic can stop Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines from putting together its most sought-after annual spectacle for the Korean cineastes. This year though, in order to ensure all the K-Culture fans’ safety while still sharing joy, entertainment and Korean culture, the Korean Film Festival will be taking on a different shape. Instead of the usual packed, opening nights and the whole-cinema experience, KFF 2020 will be more intimate these days as it will be heading to everyone’s gadgets and televisions and into their own homes through its first-ever online run.

For 21 days, Filipinos will be treated to the favorite films of the stars who can now be considered as household names in the Philippines following the increased streaming of their shows “Crash Landing on You” and “Itaewon Class” during the last few months of quarantine. Aptly-themed “Celebrity Spotlight,” KFF 2020 will be headlined by no less than three of Korea’s biggest stars that have been well-loved by Filipinos these days—Hyun Bin, Son Yejin, and Park Seo-jun.

While KFF 2020 would take place on a different platform, the same concept of free film access to the best of the best Korean films from then and now remains. Starting this September 12, 2020 to October 2, 2020, viewers may binge, enjoy, and repeat for as many times as they like, two of the best films from each star for a week.

Everybody’s favorite oppa Hyun Bin will be opening the festival with the screening of his two films “The Swindlers” and “Confidential Assignment” from September 12 to September 18. While BinJin fans may want to take note that Son Yejin will be following suit with the screening of her films “Be With You” and “Last Princess” from September 19 to September 25. Finally, to wrap up the almost month-long  festival, films “Midnight Runners” and “The Beauty Inside” of another oppa in the person of Park Seo Jun will run from September 26 to October 2.

The first online free Korean Film Festival will be exclusively available for the K-Culture lovers in the Philippines through Korean Cultural Center’s official website at

The fun and excitement don’t stop there as special raffle prizes including K-Culture items and Korean Cosmetic Sets await 10 participants who will be taking on the KCC Survey for the Korean Film Festival.

Korean Film Festival is one of the landmark events of KCC’s Korea at Home campaign which aims to, be bring musical performances, food, arts, pop culture, movies, museum exhibits, and tours right on the screens of the K-Culture enthusiasts for them to enjoy anytime, anywhere, and while staying safe at home.
