New Delhi: 

This year, the lead star of Netflix’s hit series ‘Squid Game’ Lee Jung-Jae will be seen at Cannes Film Festival for the world premiere of his feature directorial debut ‘Hunt.’ 

According to Variety, ‘Hunt’ will have the Cannes festival’s Midnight Screening section next month. The movie is a 1980s-set Korean-language spy suspense that Lee caught up in after purchasing the rights and rewriting the script. The film also stars veteran Jung Woo-Sung.

The other two films that are involved in midnight screenings are ‘Fumer Fait Tousser’ and ‘Moonage Daydream’.

The role of Lee is a privileged agent working for the Agency for National Security Planning, noticing him chasing a North Korean spy, and evolving increasingly conscious of his own country’s dark facts.

The actor also shared the poster for the same and informed his fans about it. 

For the uninversed, Lee Jung-Jae is a South Korean star since the late 1990s. But he got international success from ‘Squid Game.’ He has collected numerous U.S. awards also, as per Variety. 

Earlier, there was news that Lee Jung-Jae did not attend the US Golden Globe Awards. According to his agency Artist Company on the 5th, he will not attend the ‘2022 Golden Globe Awards’ to be held on the 9th (local time). An official from the agency said, “As Netflix refused to participate in the Golden Globe, Lee will also not attend the awards. This is because Golden Globe has been criticized by the Hollywood film industry for racism and gender issues since last year.”

In the Golden Globe Awards 2022, the actor was nominated for Best Actor for TV Drama category with his latest work ‘Squid Game.’ ‘Squid Game’ was nominated for the ‘Best TV Series’ category, and actor Oh Young-soo was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor category. It is the first time that a Korean TV series has been nominated.
