Actor Ju Ji-Hoon heads to the 71st Cannes Film Festival to represent the film ‘The Spy Gone North’
On April 12th, the festival’s executive committee announced that South Korean film ‘The Spy Gone North’ has been invited to screen at the “midnight screening” of the non-competition section. Thus, Ju Ji-Hoon, with co-stars Hwang Jung-Min, Lee Sung-Min, and director Yoon Jong-bin are leaving for France on May 10th.
‘The Spy Gone North’ tells a story about a South Korean spy in the mid-1990s, who infiltrates North Korea to obtain information on the country’s nuclear weapon usage plans.
When Ju Ji-Hoon received the invitation from the festival committee, he said, “I’m glad we were able to open fire with our movie at the Cannes Film Festival. I hope that we receive positive feedbacks from one of the most prestigious international film festivals. However, I’m just glad that we will be able to proudly premiere the movie to our domestic audience afterwards.”
Meanwhile, Ju Ji-Hoon has two more movies to premiere besides ‘The Spy Gone North’ – ‘Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days‘ and ‘Dark Figure of Crime.’ In addition, he is currently filming for the upcoming zombie drama ‘Kingdom,’ which will be the first Korean Netflix original series.
