Korean Film Festival: Helpless (화차)

A man searches for his fiancée, who vanished without a trace just before their wedding ceremony—only to discover her shocking identity. Helpless is adapted from a mystery novel by Miyabe Miyuki, known as the queen of crime fiction in Japan. Lee Seon-gyoon (The Apprehenders) stars as the veterinary clinic manager searching for his fiancée, Kim Min- hee (Moby Dick) plays his fiancée with a suspicious history, and Jo Seong-ha (The Yellow Sea) plays Lee Seon-gyoon’s detective cousin, who helps out with the case. This is director Byeon Yeong-joo’s third feature after Ardor (2002) and Flying Boys (2004) and her first attempt at a thriller.

    Do you usually meet up outside prior to the show? If so, what's the best way to identify the group/host?
