The official poster for the memorial exhibition “Kang Soo-yeon, As Long As a Movie” has been released in honor of the first anniversary of actress Kang Soo-yeon’s passing.

Even though the preview poster is just a single piece, it captures Kang Soo-yeon’s distinct and sophisticated urban presence which immediately comes to mind when her name is mentioned.

The memorial exhibition will take place on May 6 at the Korean Film Archive and from May 7 to May 9 at the MEGABOX Seongsu branch.

On May 6, three films, “Go Alone Like the Horn of a Rhinoceros” (1995), “After the Dinner” (1998), and “The Moonlight of Seoul” (2010), will be shown at the Korean Film Archive. At the MEGABOX Seongsu branch, eight films, including “Shibaji” (1986), “Sketches of Youth” (1987), “Hara-kiri: Death of a Samurai” (1989), “The Road to the Racetrack” (1991), “Blue in You” (1992), “Rainbow Trout” (1999), “JURY” (2013), and “JUNG_E” (2023), will be shown from the opening ceremony on May 7 to May 9.

Along with the film screenings, events for audience participation, including GV events with directors, actors, and critics who participated in the productions, as well as stage greetings, will be held. Details on the memorial exhibition’s schedule and screening times will be announced once they are finalized.

The official memorial book, scheduled to be published at the end of April, is also being prepared, and more details will be announced soon.

The Kang Soo-yeon Memorial Committee aims to shed new light on the late actress’s achievements and status from the perspective of 2023, commemorating the first anniversary of her passing. The committee is made up of 29 film industry professionals who worked with Kang Soo-yeon during her lifetime, including Kang So-gyeong, the late actress’s sister, Honorary Chairman Im Kwon-taek, Director Kim Dong-ho, Chairman Park Chung-hoon, and Vice Chairman Yeh Ji-won.

In related news, the Netflix movie “JUNG_E,” the last film Kang Soo-yeon worked on before her passing, was announced at a press conference by director Kim Hyung-ju and actor Ryu Kyung-soo, who were both emotional and shed tears. Ryu also shared a photo of himself with Kang Soo-yeon, saying he misses her dearly.
