The Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival (PiFan), Korea's second-largest, has announced former head programmer Han Sang-joon as the new festival director.

Han was also previously a programmer at the Pusan International Film Festival, professor of film at Chung-Ang University, and a journalist at the JoongAng Ilbo newspaper.

His predecessor PiFan director Lee Jang-Ho has been elected to Vice Chairman of the festival, while award-winning actress Kang Soo-yeon (Adada) and actor Park Joong-hoon (Radio Star) have been named to the board.

PiFan will run July 12 to 21 in Bucheon, a satellite city of Seoul.
