UMFFinist stands for UMFF (Ulju Mountain Film Festival) and Alpinist, with the basic meaning of public ambassador for UMFF.
Past UMFFinists included actress Lee Da-hee, climber Kim Ja-in, actor Seo Jun-young, mountaineer Kim Chang-ho, actress Ye Ji-won, and actress An So-hee. Mountaineer Um Hong-gil has been a part UMFF since the Pre-festival, and remains as our honorary UMFFinist.
Having been a part of the UMFF since its very beginning, Um Hong-gil returns this year as UMFF’s honorary UMFFinist. After working as an invited UMFFinist at the Pre-festvial, he has continued to have special relations with UMFF. Um is not only active as an UMFFinist, but also making headway in activities related to donation and cultural exchange for the culturally disadvantaged.
Jin Ki-joo is known for her innocence and purity, an image that the film festival wants to portray. Working as an UMFFinist this year, Jin is loved for her cheerful and lively acting, as well as for her many roles outside of acting. We hope to convey her bright and cheerful energy to the audience at the 4th UMFF.
