The Part 1 of Alienoid was an opening film of the 17th London Korean Film Festival.

On the 3rd, Alienoid had a screening on the 3rd at the ICA-Institute of Contemporary Arts. The movie follows a group of Taoists who travel back 631 years to prevent the escape of an alien prisoner trapped inside a human body.

After the screening, film journalist Leigh Singer conducted an interview with Director Choi Dong Hoon. “I’m very happy to come back to the London Korean Film Festival that I attended 10 years ago,” Choi shared. “It’s more meaningful to me that I got to meet the British audience as the opening film. I can’t wait to hear what you all thought about the movie.”

Wai Kuen Wan responded, “It was so much better than what I expected. I can’t wait for part 2 and I wish there is part 3 as well.” Gloria Pinamang shared, “It was refreshing to see lead actors like Kim Woo Bin and Kim Tae Ri playing roles they had never tried before.” Brooke Montgomery commented, “I’m excited for part 2. There are so many stories to be a movie, so I think it’d be fun to have some of them produced as a TV series.”

Various foreign media outlets such as Deadline and Sight and Sound also showed interest in the director and the movie. BBC’s Talking Movies will cover Alienoid Part 1 in its Korean movie episode.
