Siwan is headed to Cannes, France, to attend the '2017 Cannes Film Festival'!

His upcoming film 'The Merciless', directed by Byun Sung-hyun and also starring veteran actors Seol Kyung-koo, Kim Hee-won, and more, has been invited for a midnight screening at the international festival, scheduled from May 17-28 this year.

Upon hearing news of the film's invite, Siwan stated through his label Plum Entertainment, "I never even once thought about the 'Cannes Film Festival'. I'm only a rookie actor who is overwhelmed just with the act of acting... the only way I can think of to describe this opportunity of 'The Merciless' being invited to 'Cannes' is that it is luck from heaven. I only wish that a lot of people will enjoy 'The Merciless', which I had a great time filming."

Korean films invited to this year's 'Cannes Film Festival' include 'The Merciless', 'Okja' directed by Bong Jun-ho starring Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, and more, 'The Villainess' starring Kim Ok-bin and Shin Ha-kyun, Hong Sang-soo's 'Afterward' and 'Claire's Camera' both starring Kim Mi-hee, and indie films 'Director Kim' and 'Interview: Sorry Day'.
