One and Only Son Yejin

The special spotlight on a Korean actor or actress at BIFAN, offers a profound exploration of the current landscape of Korean cinema through the traces of an actor or an actress who represents contemporary Korean cinema. This year's protagonist is actress Son Yejin, who is called the "One and Only" for good reason. She became a star right with her debut and has been at the centre of public interest as an icon of melodrama ever since. She has moved between different genres, while avoiding stereotypes and fearlessly embarking on adventures to find her unique character and novelty. The retrospective will highlight Son Yejin's 24-year acting career and her next new move.
