The Cannes Film Festival, one of the biggest international film festivals, has confused one Jung Jin Young with another.

In a press release, the film festival listed the actors who would be present for the photocall events for the movies features at the festival. Director Hong Sang Soo's 'Claire's Camera' is one of the movies featured, with actor Jung Jin Young. However, the Cannes Film Festival used a photo of B1A4's Jinyoung instead of the actor's.

This is the second time the Cannes Film Festival has made the same mistake. Two years ago, they used 4minute's Sohyun's photo instead of actress Kwon So Hyun's photo for the movie 'Madonna' directed by Shin Soo Won.

  1. B1A4

They are very different in terms of age though... They should have checked better..

Loll I'm sure its an honest mistake but didnt they think that it was a bit odd when they pulled out the pictures?? I mean they look nothing alike..

Easy mistake, ones 25 and ones 52. Well we know Westerners think all Asian's look the same.

the next you'll see is Who's that chinese guy?

(Joking) Neither one of them is any BRAD PITT anyway ...

Brad Pitt? That middle aged lush who got dumped?

krell pink_oracle Sunday, May 21, 2017

Also, the BRAD PITT who earns around $10 MILLION USD per movie that he acts in it --> ... http://www. statisticbrain. com/brad-pitt-career-statistics/

Trust me it doesn't make him attractive, just more money to pay in alimony.

Krell, the ACTOR here is easily as talented if not more so as Brad Pitt, & damned attractive. About the only thing Brad Pitt bests Jung Jin Young at is earning power. I do think Brad Pitt can act & is fine looking (he was as pretty as the Idol boy when young), but Jung Jin Young senior definitely is an excellent actor - BETTER than Pitt in my opinion.

I mean, if you don't know kpop and korean actor, if you type Jung Jinyoung in google image you get the idol not the actor.. I think movie production should send pictures of the actors to prevent this kind of confusion

You would have thought the Cannes Film Festival organizers at least watched the movie before inviting it to the festival, otherwise they would not have confused one of the 52 year old lead actors for a 25 year old boy

Nah, can't watch all the films. + it's likely that one person handles the information for a lot of different films. Some things are bound to slip through the cracks :)

U think it's a 2 people staff ? thousands works on that shit, the ones who watches the movies arent the one who sends the invites, who aren't the ones who takes pictures, who aren't the ones who makes the photo events, who...... Sure they made a mistake, they rectified it; why being so butthurt ? Pretty sure most of u "fans" of the k-world would have never thought of the actor before the idol. U guyz act so on a high horse but at the end of the day that festival helps spread more recognition on korean movies than u could ever do from behind ur computers./ I thought it was a funny mistake, not harmful in any way, and im sure u would all have thought the same if it was the other way around with some excuses like "no u cant blame koreans, they don't have the same knowledge" blablabla, basically the same shit u say when ur oppas do racist things.

Wow, you just blew that WAY out of proportion. I intended for my comment to be sarcastic, didn't think y'all would take that so seriously. I'm just happy enough that Siwan was invited to the film festival (as long as they don't use Choi Siwon's picture instead of Im Siwan)
