The first-ever Singapore-South Korea co-production stars veteran Singaporean actress Hong Huifang in her first film role, alongside several popular K-drama names, including Jung Dong-hwan (Mine, Hotel Del Luna), Kang Hyung-suk (Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha, Crashing Landing On You) and Yeo Jin-goo (Hotel Del Luna, Beyond Evil). Singaporean actor Shane Pow is also in the cast, playing Hong’s son.
 
Ajoomma is the directorial debut of Singaporean filmmaker He Shuming and is produced by Anthony Chen, the Golden Horse and Cannes film festival award-winner for Ilo Ilo.
 
It is also the first Singapore film, since Eric Khoo's Mee Pok Man (1996) and Royston Tan's 15 (2003), to be selected for BIFF’s New Currents section, which serves as the festival’s main competition.
 
Over the past 26 years, the New Currents section has become the vital entry point for emerging directors and integral for the discovery of new Asian films. The competition focuses only on the first or second feature films of directors.
 
Each of the two films selected as the best films will be awarded a prize of US$30,000 (S$42,000), and will also be eligible for the New Currents Audience Award, the NETPAC Award, and the FIPRESCI Award.
