To expand the outreach of Korean arts and culture regionally, the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. presents a free series of recent and milestone Korean films at Parkway Theatre in Baltimore, Maryland, showing a critically acclaimed blockbuster each month in partnership with the Maryland Film Festival! The series launches with a screening of the star-studded, gritty crime thriller New World (신세계) on April 12 at 7 p.m. (viewer discretion is advised for mature content and language). For a listing of other screenings, visit the KCC website at SEPARATE RSVP REQUIRED: New World follows undercover cop Ja-sung (Lee Jung-jae) as he dives deep into a dark and dangerous underworld of thugs and killers. When the leader of the Goldmoon crime syndicate is killed, a political power struggle ensues and Ja-sung is torn between loyalties to two bosses: Goldmoon’s number two, Jung Chung (Hwang Jung-min), and police director Kang Hyung-chul (Choi Min-sik). For Ja-sung, there might be no easy way out of this mess, but he is determined to do things his own way in a world where no one is what they seem. Director Park Hoon-jung’s stylish gangster epic New World (2013) received some top awards, including the Star Award for Lee Jung-jae from the Korean Association of Film Critics and Best Actor for Hwang Jung-min at the Blue Dragon Film Awards, plus a slew of international festival screenings, including at San Sebastian International Film Festival, Vancouver International Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, Sitges Film Festival and the New York Asian Film Festival.
