WHAT AN ACHIEVEMENT!!!!! GJ Tangy<333Tang Wei to host Busan film fest
Chinese actress Tang Wei has been chosen to host the opening ceremony of this year's Busan International Film Festival, the event's organizers said Friday.
Famous Korean movie stars have so far hosted or co-hosted the ceremony. This is the first time in the festival's 17-year history that a foreigner has been selected to host the ceremony.
The decision reflects the festival's aim to grow into a world-class movie event beyond its current position as one representing Asia, the organizers explained.
This year's festival is set to be held on Oct. 4-13 in the southern port city of Busan.
Tang rose to prominence for her appearance in "Lust, Caution" by renowned Taiwanese-born American film director Ang Lee. She made Variety's top ten actors to watch list in 2007. (Yonhap)via http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/art/2012/09/141_119398.html
