The 20th Busan International Film Festival announced Korean actor Park Sung-woong and actress Choo Ja-hyeon as hosts for the Closing Ceremony held at the Busan Cinema Center on October 10, 2015.

Park received both public and critical acclaim for his performance in New World (2012) as well as Tabloid Truth (2013), The Fatal Encounter (2014), The Deal (2014), and The Shameless (2014). He presents an overwhelming presence with every character, including this year’s Busan International Film Festival Korean Cinema Today –Panorama section and 2015 Cannes Film Festival invitee Office (2014). The prominent actor Park Sung-woong will add special energy as the Closing Ceremony host.

Choo won the Best New Actress Award with Bloody Tie (2006) at the Daejong Film Awards. She has started working in China since 2007, notably in the TV show The Legend of the Banner Hero. Her later performance in The Temptation to Go Home (2011), a 2011 remake of Korea’s Temptation of Wife and Turbulence of the Mu Clan (2012), made Choo one of the most sought-after stars in Mainland China. She will host the Closing Ceremony of the 20th Busan International Film Festival as an Asian star who has worked in various fields that includes films, TV, and variety shows in China.

The 20th Busan International Film Festival Closing Ceremony will be held in the evening of October 10 at the outdoor theater of the Busan Cinema Center. The closing film Mountain Cry will be screened after the ceremony.
