"Masquerade" will premiere at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) at 7:30 p.m. on Friday (local time), the first Korean film ever to debut at the venue.
It was invited to be screened there by Film Independent, a non-profit arts organization that holds an event of the same title as part of the LACMA Film Series, bringing together its large community of filmmakers and wide spectrum of audiences.
After the news was announced on the LACMA website on Thursday last week, all 600 tickets soon sold out, reflecting people's high expectations of the film as well as the popularity of star Lee Byung-hun, who will step on the red carpet for the premier.
Lee made a name for himself in Hollywood with his appearance in the "G. I. Joe" series. He left the country on Monday to shoot his new film, "Red 2," starring Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren.
