    The annual Korean Film Festival is here! Catch five critically acclaimed films at selected SM Malls, in partnership with the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines, from September 7 to October 15, 2017. It begins its run at Cinema 6 of SM Megamall (September 7-10), followed by SM Lanag Premier (September 14-17), SM City Iloilo (September 21-24), SM City Cebu (September 28-October 1), SM City Clark Pampanga (October 5-8), and SM City Dasmarinas (October 12-15). Don’t know what to watch? Start with How to Steal a Dog, which tells the story of a young girl who hatches a plan to steal a dog from a rich owner and then return it to get a reward. All so she can raise enough money to buy her poor family a house. It’s a funny but heartwarming movie that is sure to tug at your heartstrings. Admission is free for all movies!

Well, now you’ll get to see the possibilities thanks to Future City, a pop-up interactive digital park that will open on September 9-10 at the SMX Convention Center in SM Aura.
