Baltimore Korean Movie Series in September: The Attorney

With autumn just around the corner, Baltimore Korean Movie Series presents the courtroom drama film The Attorney, part of the KCC's regional outreach of free screenings of milestone films at Parkway Theatre in Baltimore, in partnership with the Maryland Film Festival.


The film based on actual events, which was released in 2013, feaures the transformation of a character based on the late Roh Moo-hyun, who became a human-rights advocate and later Korean president. 


Song Woo-Seok (Song Kang-Ho) graduated from high school and eventually passed the bar. He is now an attorney in Busan specializing in tax law. The only reason that he became an attorney is for the money. Unlike other attorneys around him, he hands out his business card to pick up clients.


One day, his views are changed by student activist Jin-Woo (Im Si-Wan). Because of this, Jin-Woo is brutally tortured and put on trial. Song Woo-Seok decides to defend Jin-Woo as his client.


This film is PG-13. 127 mins. In Korean with English subtitles.

Light Korean food will be provided at 6:30 p.m. just before the film is screened.
