The WSA brings together composers and other professionals to celebrate their work and to present it to a wider audience. This year Film Fest Gent presents the film music concert Korean Composers, a concert dedicated to the crème de la crème of Korean film music. The film music concert Korean Composers will take place on Thursday 20 October 20:00 at De Bijloke.
Korean Composers - Thu. 20.10 - 20:00 - De Bijloke
Tickets for the film music concert Korean Composers are now available. Enjoy the music of contemporary classics such as Parasite, Squid Game, Okja, Oldboy, Decision to Leave and so much more.
Brussels Philharmonic, conducted by Maestro Dirk Brossé will perform live music by (amongst others) Cho Young-wuk, the go-to composer of filmmaker Park Chan-wook. He wrote the score for films such as The Handmaiden, Oldboy, A Taxi Driver and Decision to Leave (Park Chan-wook’s latest film, for which he won Best Director in Cannes). The composer often records his music in Belgium with an orchestra conducted by Dirk Brossé, as he did for the film Hunt (Lee Jung-jae), which will play out of competition at this year’s Cannes festival. Cho Young-wuk will attend the concert in person. Lee Byeong-woo, who worked with Bong Joon-ho on Mother and The Host, will also be present and accompany the orchestra on guitar.
The music of Jung Jae-il will also play an important part in the concert. Jung Jae-il has made a remarkable breakthrough in recent years thanks to scores for Bong Joon ho’s films Okja and Parasite, and the Netflix hit series Squid Game. His latest work can be heard in Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Palm d’Or contender Broker.
