Be With You (12A)
The 2018 London Korean Film Festival Teaser Screening series returns with fantasy drama Be With You, based on Japanese author Takuji Ichikawa’s novel of the same name.

Miraculously, a year later the three are reunited on that promised first day of the rainy season, yet Soo-a has no memory of the husband and son whom she once treasured so dearly.
