Actor Gang Dong-won was seen late Tuesday on the red carpet of the 71st Cannes Film Festival.

According to YG Entertainment, Gang was formally invited there as a guest while visiting the city to promote his upcoming film “Tsunami LA.” It is a disaster film set in Los Angeles, the first Hollywood flick for the 37-year-old actor.


The agency did not comment on media reports that Gang met with French filmmakers for a potential role in a film made there.

This year’s Cannes Film Festival kicked off Tuesday and will be held until May 19.

“Burning” by director Lee Chang-dong is the only Korean movie in the running for Palme d’Or, the festival’s highest honor.
