Director Hong Sang-soo's new film advances to Berlin fest

Korea's renowned director Hong Sang-soo's new film has been invited to a competitive section of this year's Berlin film festival, Hong's production said Friday.

"Hong's 14th feature film titled 'Nobody's Daughter Haewon' advanced to the competition section of the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival," Jeonwonsa Film Co. said.
This year's event is scheduled for Feb. 2-17.

Hong last competed for a prize at the festival in 2008 with "Night and Day."

His two other movies -- "Woman on the Beach" (2007) and "The Day a Pig Fell Into the Well" (1997) -- were shown in the festival's "panorama" and "forum" non-competition sections.

Earlier, "Fatal" by Korean director Lee Don-ku was invited to the "panorama" section of the 2013 event.

"Nobody's Daughter Haewon" depicts female college student Haewon and the things that happen to her after her mother leaves for Canada.

New actress Jeong Eun-chae played the title character Haewon while actor Lee Seon-gyun, Kim Eui-seong and Yoo Jun-sang are also among the cast.

It is scheduled to open at local theaters in February after the world premier in Berlin. (Yonhap)
