      Choi Min-sik will appear in his first non-Korean film, "Lucy," the latest flick by French director Luc Besson. It boasts a star-studded cast including Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman.

      Choi has been receiving offers from around the world since the huge success in 2003 of "Oldboy," directed by Park Chan-wook. Filming on "Lucy" will begin this fall, with a release date scheduled for next year.

      A number of Korean actors have been expanding their international careers recently, with actors like Lee Byung-hun and Song Kang-ho probably the highest profile as they have both appeared in current Hollywood hits.

      Lee has become a staple of the "G.I Joe" series and Song worked with actor Chris Evans in director Bong Joon-ho's apocalyptic "Snowpiercer."
