Before calmly evaluating the films, I confess that there were many moments when my heart ached with the reality learned from them and I appreciate all those who had captured the reality with camera. It is the comment from a judge of the preliminary evaluation in Korea Competition this year. This edition of Korean Competition is full of the films with the timeliness to look at the main social issues in Korea over the past few years. Even the films that deal with more personal themes represent the weight of everyday life that individuals should bear in Korean society. We expect the film selected in Korean Competition this year will fascinate the audience with a different perspective on different subjects.
