Following the news surrounding his family history, actor Kang Dong Won will be attending the Jeonju International Film Festival (JIFF), making it his first public appearance since the incident.


On April 20, a representative of JIFF stated that the actor will greet fans at the event to promote his film 'Master' on May 3.

JIFF will be holding its 18th annual festival this year from April 27 - May 6. Instead of stepping on the red carpet, Kang Dong Won decided to sit with guests this time around, causing many to wonder how he would act before the masses.


Meanwhile, Kang Dong Won recently caused a stir with his unexpected ancestral ties regarding his great grandfather back in March.

    How about other people with ancestors which also collaborate with all foreign invaders (don't forget Chinese dynasties which oppress Korean many times longer than the Japanese).

    tell me what about his ancestors

    WTF! Why would he need to apologize for something he had no control over?! So what is his ancestors weren't great? He isn't like them so why does it matter?!

    People got in a stank because in a much earlier interview he'd talked very highly about his grandfather giving him a lot of praise. It's a bit like when people find out their grandfathers were Nazi's or Nazi collaborators, they only knew them as loving grandparents but the rest of the world know them to be monsters.

    One day you're the darling, the next you're the guy coming back from "reflecting". It doesn't take much that's for sure. I guess when you place so much importance on ancestry there's no way to avoid being trapped by your birth.

    the timeline between praising ganddad interview eons ago when he was new to the industry VS him finding out the truth about his ancestry LINES UP PERFECTLY. I dont think AKP bothered clearing up the backlash about him when the poor guy has no control over the past and the man he once admired turned out to be a traitor. cant imagine the trauma.

    His grandfather was a Japanese collaborator who got wealthy by turning in Koreans
