Jeon Do-yeon Takes a Rare Look Back at Bucheon Film Fest

Actress Jeon Do-yeon on Friday reflected upon her illustrious career at the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, which is holding a retrospective to honor her. The annual 11-day festival runs until Sunday.

"When I started out, I had no idea I would be acting this long, but it became my dream and my path. I want to keep on going", she said at a press conference on the second day of the festival.

All 17 of Jeon's films are being screened at the event. Its director, Choi Yong-bae, said that simply having her at the festival makes it a success. Jeon debuted in film with "The Contact" in 1997, which was invited to the very first festival launched the same year.
