Plans for “Broker” started about 5 years in the past.
As all the time, all of it started with the actors. I first met Song Kang Ho on the Busan International Film Festival and Kang Dong Won when he was in Tokyo for work. I’ve continued to remain involved with the 2 actors in Tokyo, Seoul, Busan, and Cannes. At first, we merely exchanged greetings however as we continued to share conversations, it naturally led to us speaking about engaged on a movie collectively.
I labored with Bae Doona in 2009, and I assumed to myself, ‘I hope we work collectively once more, subsequent time as a human character,’ and that dream has lastly come true over 10 years later. And now I shall be engaged on a movie with crew members and Korean actors I vastly respect.
“Broker” is a narrative about child containers. Right now, engaged on the script that may transfer these three nice actors, I’m so excited. In order to share this pleasure with you all, I hope to create an exhilarating, heartwarming, and emotional movie.
This movie, like my newest movie, shall be one the place I’m other than my residence nation and native language. What will I have the ability to specific and share as we overcome limitations of language and tradition? What does it imply to be a director? I hope to discover these questions by way of this challenge.

The director is thought for his highly effective storytelling, detailed course, and sharp messages about social points, and they’re at the moment within the technique of engaged on the script, with filming set to start in 2021.
