About 2,000 actors and citizens protested the government’s plan to cut Korea’s screen quota in front of the Donghwa duty free shop building in Seoul at 1:30 p.m. yesterday, pledging to defend Korea’s screen quota and to “stop the cultural invasion.”

Around 100 actors and actresses, including Choi Min-sik, Lee Byeong-hyun, Hwang Jeong-min, Jeon Do-yeon, Kim Seon-ah, Moon Geun-young and Hyeon Bin, and directors Lim Gwon-taek, Lee Joon-ik, Song Hae-seong, Hong Sang-soo, and Lee Jae-yong attended the demonstration.

Actors and directors suspended all film work yesterday in protest.
