Stars arrived on the red carpet for opening ceremony of the 28th Busan International Film Festival (BIFF). The world premiere of Jang Kun-jae's "Because I Hate Korea" will open Asia's largest film festival as it looks to rally from a year marked by scandal and budget cutbacks.
Based on the best-selling Chang Kang-myoung novel, the movie received support from BIFF's Asia Project Market back in 2016. South Korea has transformed itself into a cultural powerhouse since then thanks to the explosive success of the Oscar-winning "Parasite" and the Netflix series "Squid Game".
