Youth Film Festival to Open in Late August

Actor Yeo Jin-goo and Actress Baek Jin-hee were appointed promotional ambassadors on Monday for this year's Seoul International Youth Film Festival.

"We expect that Yeo and Baek will be able to relate well to young spectators while promoting the event overall," the organizing committee said.

Yeo and Baek will have a press event on July 23 to kick off their promotional activities for the film festival and meet fans during the festival.

The festival will open on Aug. 21 at an outdoor stage on the Han River in Seoul and last for eight days at nearby cinemas in the capital.
