Actor Song Kang-ho has been appointed as a jury member for the competition at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
Song is the fifth Korean to serve on the jury at Cannes after director Shin Sang-ok in 1994, director Lee Chang-dong in 2009, actress Jeon Do-yeon in 2014 and director Park Chan-wook in 2017.
The festival takes place from July 6 to 17.
Two Korean films have been invited -- Hong Sang-soo's "In Front of Your Face" as part of a new section called Cannes Premières, and "Emergency Declaration" by Han Jae-rim in the Out-of-Competition section.
