Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie revealed that she would love to act in a Korean movie one day!
During a video press conference today with local reporters in Seoul for her upcoming action thriller Those Who Wish Me Dead, she shared her fond feelings towards the country and its film industry.
The actress, who has visited Korea on numerous occasions, such as during press tours or to drop off her son at Yonsei University, told the reporters that “Korea absolutely has a special place in [her] heart.”
I love being there and I hope to spend more time in the future. Even though because of COVID, he [her son] isn’t able to be there, he continues his Korean language studies and teaches me sometimes.
She also spoke highly about her co-star in Marvel’s Eternals, Ma Dong Seok.
He is a dear friend. He is brilliant and he is kind. Such a good man. I look forward to everyone seeing that film as well.
