Notable attendees, including director Lee Chang-dong and actors Kim Yeo-jin, Park Joong-hoon, and Ye Ji-won, will participate in the screenings and engage in conversations with the audience, sharing their memories of the late actress.

In mid-May, a memorial book dedicated to her will be published. The book will contain previously unreleased photos from the actress's personal album and tribute messages from prominent film industry figures, including director Bong Joon-ho and actor Seol Kyung-gu. The 'Kang Soo-yeon Memorial Project Promotion Committee,' which organized the exhibition, intends to continue with the memorial project, including publishing academic books.
