“A lifetime unforgettable experience,” said Judge Song Kang-ho.
Actor Song Kang-ho, who was the judge of the competition category at the 74th Cannes International Film Festival this year, met with OSEN reporter after returning home and expressed his feelings, “It was a difficult but unforgettable experience for the rest of my life.”
Song Kang-ho returned home through Incheon International Airport on the 20th after completing the set schedule of the movie “Emergency Declaration” (director Han Jae-rim), which was invited to the role of the judges and non-competition section.
At the meeting, Song Kang-ho told OSEN, “It was hard because I had a lot of schedules.”
Actors Lee Byung-hun, Im Si-wan and Han Jae-rim, who appeared in the “Emergency Declaration” and visited the Cannes Film Festival together, returned home a day earlier on the afternoon of the 19th. “Emergency Declaration” (Distribution Showbox, Produced by MAGNUM 9 C-JES Entertainment Cine) is an aerial disaster film about an airplane that has declared an unconditional landing in the face of an unprecedented disaster.
Song Kang-ho set up a panel of nine judges with director Spike Lee (USA)-Marti Diop (Senegal)-Yesica Hausner (Austria)-Clever Mendonsa Filyu (Brazil)-Melanie Laurent (France), singer Milane Palmer (Canada), and actor Maggie Gyllenhal-Tahar Raheim (France). This year’s Palme d’Or went to “Titan” directed by Julia Duconau.
Song Kang-ho came in a day late after completing his role as a judge. “The schedule was tight,” he said. “Nevertheless, I had an unforgettable experience for the rest of my life.”
