Han Ga In to Help Aspiring Moviemakers in Vietnam
Director Kim Ji Hoon and actress Han Ga In will be acting as mentors for aspiring moviemakers in Vietnam.
CJ CGV announced that "Han Ga In and director Kim Ji Hoon will attend the 2013 Vietnam Ho Chi Minh Toto′s Showroom event to be held on July 11, and help local teenagers cultivate their dreams of being in film."
The director and actress immediately agreed to participate in the event, saying they wished to help the program bring up future talents in the area.
This will be Kim Ji Hoon′s second time with the event, following his previous appearance in the 2012 China Beijing Toto′s Showroom.
Toto′s Showroom is a global program that CJ CGV has hosted since 2011. It aims to help foster the growth of future talents in the global scene, based on the company′s interest in such new talents.
Through the program, CJ CGV will provide teenagers around the world a place to communicate and talk about film, spreading Korean culture in the process.
Participants for Toto′s Showroom are chosen through a contest, and this year the number of those chosen were increased from 42 to 66. Students will get to write scenarios and storyboards, and even get to film, act and edit their own pieces.
Director Kim Ji Hoon, who directed the film Tower, said, "Last year as I participated in the 2012 China Beijing Toto′s Showroom, I was touched at the great passion these children showed toward film. I came to participate again in this year′s 2013 Vietnam Ho Chi Minh Toto′s Showroom to be a help to those children full of dreams."
Han Ga In commented, "I′m looking forward to seeing the children come together culturally in harmony through 2013 Vietnam Ho Chi Minh Toto′s Showroom, and have them come from around the world to produce their own films."
