Three Korean projects have been invited to the Los Angeles Film Festival, coming next month.

Korean American director Benson Lee’s “Seoul Searching” will receive a gala screening. Documentary “My Love, Don’t Cross That River,” by director Jin Mo-young, has entered the documentary competition and director Jang Kun-jae’s “A Midsummer’s Fantasia,” the world fiction competition.

“My Love, Don’t Cross That River,” which premiered last year in South Korea to critical acclaim and broken records for an indie project, follows the story of an elderly couple who have been married for 76 years.

“A Midsummer’s Fantasia” is a romance film starring Korean and Japanese actors.

“Seoul Searching,” starring an eclectic Asian cast that includes Justin Chon, Cha In-pyo and Crystal Kay, is a coming-of-age story set at a Seoul summer camp in the 1980s.
