Song Kang Ho is my favourite Korean actor by far, every single film of his I've seen I've loved. I also really love The Host and Snowpiercer. So no doubt I'm going to love this film too. I'm so excited to see it!

This is going to be a huge hit globally.


With the quality of films Bong Joon Ho is creating, he could easily find himself winning an Oscar.


I cant wait to see it!
