Hollywood stars Will Smith and Josh Brolin and director Barry Sonnenfeld gave a press conference in Seoul on Monday morning to promote their film "Men in Black 3," which has its world premiere in Korea.
Smith said Korea, as a growing market for U.S. films, "seems like the perfect place to begin."
"Men in Black 3" is set in the year 1969, when alien villain Boris (Jemaine Clement) travels back to that time to murder Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) who got in his way. Agent J, played by Smith, decides to go back to 1969 to solve the problems in cooperation with young Agent K, played by Brolin.
When asked who he thinks is an alien in the real world, Smith admitted he has discussed the question with his daughter, who thinks Korean manufactured band Wonder Girls are like aliens.
Brolin has been cast in the Hollywood remake of Park Chan-wook's "Oldboy." He will take the part played by Choi Min-sik in the Korean original. Shooting of the Hollywood remake will begin in October. He said that he is very nervous because the original is so perfect.
