Actor Song Joong-ki and actress Park So-dam will host the opening ceremony of this year's Busan International Film Festival, which kicks off early next month.
The festival's organizers said Song has demonstrated great versatility as an actor through his portrayal of many characters in various genres.
Park gained global recognition for her appearance in director Bong Joon-ho's multi-Oscar-winning film "Parasite."
The festival, which marks its 26th year, will run from Oct. 6 to 15. A total of 223 movies from 70 countries will be shown on 29 screens at six theaters in the southern port city.
Various outdoor events attended in-person by filmmakers and silver-screen stars will return this year after they were all canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
