Yoo Ah In’s critically acclaimed movie, “The Throne” (“Sado”), will join the 19th Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF). The film will screen over the course of festival, which runs June 11-19, 2016.

The Chinese media outlet Sina, quoted as saying on Friday, eight Korean movies will screen at the festival, including The Throne, and listed 8 local awards The Throne received throughout the year.



Along with Tokyo International Film Festival, the SIFF is one of the biggest film festivals in Asia. Since its beginning in 1993, Shanghai International Film Festival has grown to become an A-category international film festival.

Remember that The Throne was selected as the Best Korean Film by China’s authoritative film community β€œDou Ban”. So, having it on SIFF will be a good opportunity for the movie buff to watch in the big screen.
