Actress Song Hye-kyo plays a documentary producer who forgives a 17-year-old boy for killing her fiance in the movie "A Reason to Live," which will premier at the 16th Busan International Film Festival next month.
The film is directed by Lee Jeong-hyang, of "Art Museum by the Zoo" fame. It was officially invited to premiere at the Gala Presentation of the film festival, which will run from Oct. 6 to 14.
The festival was formerly known as the Pusan International Film Festival but amended the spelling of its name this year to conform to the official Romanization of the city in which it is held.
"A Reason to Live" portrays the confusion and sadness that the heroine feels when her forgiveness leads to unexpected results. It will be screened along with a series of activities, including outdoor stage greetings by the actress, press conferences and a conversation with the audience.
"A Reason to Live" will go on general release nationwide from Oct. 27.
