‘Dark Figure of Crime’ to screen in London

Sept 22,2018
The director of “Dark Figure of Crime” Kim Tae-gyun and the film’s lead actor Kim Yun-seok have been invited to attend the London East Asia Film Festival (Leaff).

The movie is about police detective Kim Hyung-min, played by actor Kim Yun-seok, who meets Kang Tae-oh, a serial killer who is in prison, played by actor Ju Ji-hoon.

Detective Kim later tries to track down the bodies of victims from seven separate crimes that Kang confesses responsibility for.

The director and the actor will be attending the festival on Oct. 25.

Leaff was established in 2015 as a non-profit arts organization that celebrates East Asian filmmaking. This year’s festival will run from Oct. 25 to Nov. 4.

The movie, however, has faced some controversy for using a true murder case without the victim’s family’s consent.
