This is a unique invitation for a Korean film, attracting the attention of film fans worldwide.

On the 11th, at the 77th Cannes International Film Festival’s official invitation announcement press conference held at the UGC Normandie Theatre in Paris, France, the news of ‘Veteran 2”s invitation was announced. The Midnight Screening section is a non-competitive section that carefully selects works with both artistic value and mass appeal among various genres such as action, fantasy, horror, noir, and thriller.

‘Veteran 2’, a sequel to the beloved 2015 film ‘Veteran’, is an action crime drama in which veteran detective Seo Do-cheol (played by Hwang Jung-min) and rookie detective Park Sun-woo (played by Jung Hae-in) chase a serial killer to the end. This is the first time a Korean series film has been invited to the Cannes Film Festival, and it marks Director Ryoo Seung-wan’s return to Cannes after 19 years. Hwang Jung-min steps onto the Cannes Film Festival red carpet for the third time, and Jung Hae-in for his first.

However, Korean films did not make it to the competition section of the Cannes International Film Festival for the second consecutive year. Despite this, the Korean film community considers the invitation of ‘Veteran 2’ as evidence of the continuous international success of Korean films. This year’s competition section includes new works by world-renowned directors such as Jia Zhangke, Yorgos Lanthimos, and Ali Abbasi, ensuring the Cannes Film Festival remains a significant event for film fans worldwide.

The 77th Cannes International Film Festival is scheduled to be held in Cannes, France, from May 14th to 25th. The invitation of ‘Veteran 2’ to the Cannes Film Festival is expected to prove once again the global stature of Korean films, the exceptional artistry of Director Ryoo Seung-wan, and the participating actors. Film fans are highly anticipating what response ‘Veteran 2’ will receive at the Cannes Film Festival and what new opportunities this will open up.
