Im Siwan will be flying to France to attend the 70th Cannes Film Festival.
On May 22, Plum Entertainment confirmed the news and said, “The final decision has been made for Im Siwan to fly to Cannes to attend the Cannes Film Festival on May 23.”
According to the representative, Im Siwan will be partaking in all promotional activities for “The Merciless,” including the movie’s photocall, red carpet event, and press conference. He will be joining the rest of the cast of Sol Kyung Gu, Kim Hee Won, and Jeon Hae Jin.
Im Siwan was officially invited to the film festival for the midnight screening of “The Merciless.” Considering the fact that he will be enlisting in the military in the near future, he had to receive permission from the Military Manpower Association to travel overseas.
After completing his promotional activities, Im Siwan will be flying back on May 25 for his drama, MBC’s “The King Loves.” He will go straight into filming and make up for lost time.
