Directed by Ryu Seung-wan, “Veteran 2” has garnered significant attention at the Cannes Film Festival, once again elevating the status of Korean cinema on the world stage. This invitation represents more than just the success of a single film; it symbolizes the continuous growth and international recognition of the Korean film industry.

According to the official announcement by the 77th Cannes Film Festival executive committee on May 11 (local time), “Veteran 2” was invited to the Midnight Screening section. This section is known for carefully selecting a handful of films that combine artistry and popularity among various genres such as action, fantasy, horror, noir, and thriller. The invitation of “Veteran 2” is significant in itself, especially since it marks the first time a domestic series film has been invited to the Cannes Film Festival, drawing even more attention.

“Veteran 2” is an action crime drama that follows veteran detective Seo Do-cheol (played by Hwang JungMin) and the newly joined youngest detective Park Sun-woo (played by Jung Hae-in) as they chase a serial killer. With a strong casting combination including Hwang JungMin, the original veteran detective team, and the newly joined Jung Hae-in, the film is already generating much anticipation among audiences.

For director Ryu Seung-wan, the invitation to “Veteran 2” marks another opportunity to step onto the stage of the Cannes Film Festival. Notably, for Hwang JungMin, it represents a meaningful record of his third entry into the Cannes Film Festival following “The Wailing” (2016) and “The Spy Gone North” (2018), while for Jung Hae-in, it offers the prestigious opportunity to walk the Cannes Film Festival red carpet for the first time in his life.

Although it is regrettable that Korean works did not advance to the competition section at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the invitation of “Veteran 2” alone is an occasion to confirm the global recognition and influence of Korean cinema. Especially since director Bong Joon-ho’s “Parasite” won the Palme d’Or in 2019, the Korean film industry has been receiving even more attention on the international stage.

This year’s Cannes Film Festival is scheduled to take place from May 14 to 25 in the southern French resort town of Cannes, and the screening of “Veteran 2” is expected to be an opportunity to showcase the charm of another Korean film to movie fans worldwide. The screening of “Veteran 2” serves as a hopeful moment for Korean cinema to shine even brighter on the global stage in the future.
