Hopeless stars Song Joong-Ki, Hong Xa Bin and others have been invited to the 76th Cannes Film Festival this year for their upcoming movie's premiere. The film will be screened and presented under the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes 2023. After being invited to the Cannes, Plus M Entertainment released an International poster of the film.

The overseas poster of Hopeless featured two men -- Yeon Guy and Chi Geon. While Yeon Gyu is a teenage boy who has no one to lean on, Chi Geon is a man who has lived in the world according to his wishes. The role of Chi Geon is played by Joong-Ki and the character of Yeon Gyu is essayed by Xa Bin. Hopeless will be released in Korea later this year. 

Soon after the poster was released, fans took to the comments to post their reactions. A fan of Joong-Ki wrote, "You are an excellent actor, congratulations on your new work Oppa, it will be a success @hi_songjoongki," while another fan commented, "I know you put your heart and soul into this movie. Can’t wait to see it. Hoping also for your fabulous look as you walk the red carpet in Cannes." Check out the poster of Hopeless below.
