From: Yuni Cho <yuni.ny@koreasociety.org>

The Korea Society would like to invite you to...

A special screening of HaHaHa

The Museum of the Moving Image
Sunday, February 20
[115 min]

The Korea Society joins the newly renovated Museum of the Moving Image in presenting Hong Sang-soo's entertaining Hahaha, a deceptively light romantic comedy, which won the Un Certain Regard at Cannes 2010.

A filmmaker on the skids plans to move to Canada to meet a film-critic friend. During a drinking session, they decide to share memories of trips they took to the same seaside town. 
This special screening will take place in the new 267-seat theater at the Museum of the Moving Image at 35th Avenue & 37th Street in Astoria.

  1. FIY, Dir. Hong Sang Soo is one of my precious favorite Korean filmmakers, who is able to reveal the society where he is belonged to in a very interesting and very non-oriental way. In addition, HaHaHa is, I heard, called to one of his bests in Korea when it's released. If Korean film experiences to many of you guys are confined to Old Boys, and Kim Ki-Duk movies, I'm so sure that this will be a totally different experience.
