Korean film "Late Autumn," starring Korean actor Hyun Bin and Chinese actress Tang Wei, has been invited to the prestigious Berlin International Film Festival and the Fribourg international Film Festival.

A press release from Boram Entertainment announced that "Late Autumn" will be screened at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival, starting February 10 till 20, under the forum category which comprises experimental films from around the world without any restrictions to format or genre.

Meanwhile, the flick will be competing against other worldwide films at the Fribourg International Film Festival from March 19 to 26.

Founded in 1951, the Berlin International Film Festival has been celebrated every February since 1978. The event is composed of seven different film sections including competition, panorama, forum, generation, German films, Berlinale shorts and retrospective.

The Fribourg International Film Festival aims to promote films and contribute to ensuring cinematographic and cultural diversity in Switzerland and throughout Europe. It selects works mainly from Asia, Africa and Latin America.
"Late Autumn," set to open in local theaters on February 17, tells of a coincidental meeting between a male gigolo named Hoon (Hyun Bin) and Anna (Tang Wei), who is in jail for murdering her abusive husband.

The movie was first released in 1966 by famed Korean director Lee Man-hee and was re-made three times -- into "Promise of the Body" in 1975, "Manchu" in 1982 and Japanese film "Promise" in 1972.
