Jeon Do Yeon has been invited to be a judge at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, being the first Korean actress to do so.

Many top actors, directors, producers, etc. are chosen to be judges, and this year the panel is more diverse than usual. The last representative from Korea was director Lee Chang Dong in 2009.
