[caption id="attachment_13132" align="alignright" width="410" caption="The Scandal Maker"][/caption] The New York Asian Film Festival hits NYC for the 9th year this weekend with a diverse lineup made up of some of the best in movies coming out of Asia today. Hailed as "…one of the city's most valuable events" by The New York Times, this year’s festival has special guests galore. Also new this year is a new screening location: the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater. The second part of the festival will still take place at  Japan Society like last year's festival. DramaFever has teamed up with the New York Asian Film Festival (hosted by Subway Cinema) to bring our New York City fans free tickets to Korean films BLADES OF BLOOD and SECRET REUNION. Full lineup of films listed after contest details! [caption id="attachment_13138" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Secret Reunion"][/caption] SECRET REUNION A decade after JOINT SECURITY AREA stole our hearts and defected to parts unknown, the immortal Song Kang-Ho (THE HOST) returns to preside over the birth of its oddball brother-in-law, SECRET REUNION. Directed by Hun Jang (ROUGH CUT) and pairing Song opposite Kang Dong-Won (M), this North-vs-South spy game is a one-nation bromance, mashing up DAY OF THE JACKAL with THE ODD COUPLE to create 2010's most heartwarming shoot-'em-up, alternating manly hugs with messy headshots. SECRET REUNION is playing twice: Fri, July 2, 7:30pm, and Sat, July 3, 2:10pm; at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater. [caption id="attachment_13137" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Blades of Blood"][/caption] BLADES OF BLOOD It's a powerhouse three-way team-up. Lee Joon-Ik, director of KING & CLOWN, the top grossing Korean movie of all time, returns to the Joseon Dynasty for the first time since K&C. Hwang Jung-Min, an actor who was originally told he was too ugly to be in movies, but who has gone on take home eight "Best Actor" awards in nine years, is cast as the movie's hero, a blind swordsman. And then there's the source material, the Korean manga, Like the Moon Escaping from the Clouds which was awarded the Republic of Korea Cartoon Culture Literary Prize in 1996. The result? A muscular blockbuster with impeccable style. BLADES OF BLOOD is playing Thu, Jul 8, 8:45pm, at Film Society of Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater. Director Lee Joon-Ik will be in attendance.
