Top South Korean filmmakers, angered by their government's decision that effectively doubles the number Hollywood films allowed to be shown in the country, are planning demonstrations half a world away -- at the Berlin International Film Festival, Daily Variety reported today (Friday). The trade paper said that famed director Chan-wook Park, who has been scheduled to lecture at the festival's Talent Campus, plans to voice his opposition to the government's action during the festival. He is expected to be joined by the country's top actor, Dong-gun Jang, who is scheduled to arrive in Berlin to promote Chinese director Kaige Chen's The Promise, in which he stars.
