Washington [US], April 15 (ANI): The lead star of Netflix's hit series 'Squid Game', Lee Jung-jae, will be at the Cannes Film Festival this year with the world premiere of his feature directorial debut 'Hunt'.
According to Variety, next month 'Hunt' will be in the Cannes festival's Midnight Screening section. The other two films that will be receiving midnight screenings include 'Fumer Fait Tousser' and 'Moonage Daydream'.
'Hunt' is a 1980s-set Korean-language spy thriller that Lee got caught up in after buying the rights and rewriting the screenplay. Lee also stars in the picture alongside veteran Jung Woo-Sung.
His role as an elite agent working for the Agency for National Security Planning sees him hunting for a North Korean spy, and becoming increasingly aware of his own country's dark truths.
Lee has been an established star in South Korea since the late 1990s. But as the international success of 'Squid Game' snowballed Lee collected multiple U.S. awards also, as per Variety. (ANI)
