Korean Cultural Center New York To Show Lee Jung Jae Films For Free

The films will be screened online for free!

On the Korean Cultural Center New York's website, a free online screening honoring "Squid Game" star Lee Jung-filmography jae's will run throughout next month.

The screening, which is part of the center's "Korean Movie Nights at Home: Master's Series of 2022" to highlight distinguished Korean actors' cinematic achievements, will include English subtitles for six of Lee's films, ranging from heartfelt romances to crime thrillers: "Deliver Us from Evil," "New World," "Assassination," "The Thieves," "Big Match," and "Il Mare."

Lee rose to international fame because to the Netflix original survival drama. But, with a career spanning nearly three decades on both the big and small screens in Korea, he had already established himself as one of the most sought-after actors.

In addition to starring in "Sandglass," an iconic 1995 drama with a 64.5 percent domestic viewership rating, the actor has had a number of memorable roles, including in the espionage action film "Assassination," set during Japan's colonial occupation of Korea from 1910 to 1945, and the Joseon-era period drama "The Face Reader."

The romance fantasy "Il Mare," according to the cultural center, is remarkable for being the first Korean film to be remade in Hollywood as "The Lake House."

Lee's performance as Sung Ki-hoon in "Squid Game," praised for its twisted transformation of Korean children's games into a life-or-death competition for 45.6 billion won, has earned him a slew of awards this year, including the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Male Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series, the Critic's Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series, and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Male
