Calendar of Korean Events in Toronto


Please note, we would like to apologize for listing two Korean films – Venus Talk and Tabloid Truth – as playing in Toronto when Cineplex only screened them in Coquitlam, BC. According to their website, they will no longer be screening Korean films in Toronto. When I wrote to them about it, I was told it was a business decision.
