K-Cinema Screening & Social: Familyhood (July 13 & 27)

Go Joo-yeon (Kim Hye-soo) is a self-centered star who has always gotten what she wants: fame, money, and even good-looking young boyfriends. But now in her 40s with her acting career in a slump, she wonders if she should settle down with her secret boyfriend, 12 years her younger. A rookie actor and flagrant player, he seems only interested in taking advantage of her fame. When Joo-yeon learns the devastating truth that she has no one to rely on, she decides to build a relationship with someone who can be an absolute in her life: her own baby. And she'll do it with or without a man by her side.

Director Kim Tae-gon had a box office hit with his 2016 contemporary family comedy, Familyhood, starring veteran TV and film actress Kim Hye-soo. The film's Korean title, 'Goodbye Single', hints at the film's unconventional but still traditional values-oriented story. 

In Korean with English subtitles, 120 minutes.
