Song-Kang-Ho-Ko-Asung-snowpiercer-interview

From director Bong Joon Ho and adapted from the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige,” Snowpiercer tells the story of what happens after Earth has been frozen for 17 years, making the planet uninhabitable, and the few who are still alive are separated by class and now live aboard a train that perpetually circles the world.  When a young leader (Chris Evans) from the slum-like tail section decides to start a riot, his fellow passengers charge toward the engine located at the front of the train, where they seek to gain absolute authority.

At the film’s press day, Korean actors Song Kang-Ho and Ko Asung spoke in a roundtable interview about why they wanted to work with director Bong Joon Ho again, reuniting to play father and daughter, the biggest challenges of this film, how much input they had, the experience of working on such an international project, and what it was like to work with Hollywood stars.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.
