Mother Playing at Lotte Cinema Seomyeon with English Subtitles


The Lotte Cinema in Seomyeon is screening Bong Joon Ho’s “Mother” with English subtitles. Bong is one of Korea’s most celebrated and (at age 39) youngest visionaries. He quickly established himself as a leading light in Korean cinema when he made “Memories of Murder” (2003), a unique take on South Korea’s first serial killer case and the police procedural genre. He later went on to break local box-office records with his hugely successful monster movie, “The Host” (2006). His latest film, about a desperate adjumma determined to prove her son’s innocence after he is accused of murder, premiered just weeks ago at the Cannes film festival where it was generally well-received. Lotte Cinema is offering a rare opportunity for foreigners living in Busan to see a current Korean movie by an internationally well-regarded director in theaters.

Lotte Cinema is located on the top floor of the Lotte Department Store in Seomyeon.
