Free Monthly Korean Movie Night: Hearty Paws / Heart Is...

Join us for a free K-Cinema movie night and snack reception at the Korean Embassy, featuring the heartwarming 2006 film Hearty Paws, aka Heart Is..., January 10 and 24.


Eleven-year-old Chan-i (Yoo Seung-ho) and his younger sister So-i (Kim Hyang-gi) are a family. Abandoned by their single mother, they struggle to get by but also find ways to enjoy the simple joy in life. Their "adopted" puppy – named Ma-eum, or Heart – brings a new sense of love and happiness to their small family, as well as a deep loyalty that will outlast even the greatest possible tragedy. Directed by Park Eun-hyung and Oh Dal-kyun, Hearty Paws (2006), also known by the title Heart Is..., struck a chord with Korean audiences for its combination of cuteness and tugging heartstrings, leading to future successes for its two young lead actors. Watch the theatrical trailer at

In Korean with English subtitles; 97 minutes. Doors open at 6 pm for a pre-show reception with Korean snacks! The film will begin promptly at 6:30 pm.
