At 5 am on the 27th, the trailer for the Japanese movie 'I Just Dropped My Smartphone - The Final Chapter - Final Hacking Game' (hereinafter referred to as 'Final Hacking Game') starring Kwon Eun-bi was released.

The 'I Just Dropped My Smartphone' series, which is a film adaptation of Japanese author Akira Shiga's original novel, was a huge hit, attracting more than 1.5 million viewers when it was first released in 2018 and earning more than 1.9 billion yen (about 17.2 billion won) in box office revenue. The sequel 'I Just Dropped My Smartphone: Caught Murderer', which was released in 2020, was also a box office success, exceeding 900,000 viewers even when theaters were closed due to the declaration of a COVID-19 emergency.

Kwon Eun-bi, who is trying acting for the first time through 'Final Hacking Game', plays the role of Sumin, a black-haired beauty surrounded by mystery. Director Hideo Nakata, the ‘master of J-horror’ who directed the film, also praised it, saying, “Kwon Eun-bi did an excellent job of expressing Japanese emotions and dynamic physical expressions.”

The released video started with a scene where Makoto Tomita (played by Kei Tanaka) dropped his smartphone and continued with the image of Urano (played by Ryo Narita), a serial killer who only targets dark-haired beauties, giving a sense of fear. Then, the image of Kwon Eun-bi looking at the other person with shaking eyes and shaking as if anxious appeared one after another, raising the burning curiosity of global fans.

'Final Hacking Game' was officially invited to the 28th Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN), which will be held in Bucheon, Gyeonggi-do for 11 days from July 4th to 14th. The Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival is Asia's largest genre film festival and world-class festival, and is considered one of the three major film festivals in Korea along with the Busan International Film Festival and Jeonju International Film Festival.

This year, with 255 long and short films from 49 countries being screened, 'Final Hacking Game' was invited in recognition of the skills of director Hideo Nakata, a master of Japanese horror who is active worldwide. It was listed as one of 15 new films in Mad MaxX, a section where you can see new works by masters and mid-level writers who are leading genre films around the world.

Kwon Eun-bi will attend the opening ceremony held at the Bucheon Arts Center on July 4, the first day of the film festival, and walk the red carpet. Having announced her unique transformation from the music industry's representative 'Summer Queen' to an actress, she is expected to receive the spotlight alongside stars from around the world.

Meanwhile, Kwon Eun-bi, who returned to global fans after releasing her second single 'SABOTAGE' on the 18th, is continuing her active activities with the title song of the same name.
