    Ko Ah-sung stars in the new film "Because I Hate Korea" which began shooting last week.
    Ko has steadily built up her filmography since her debut in "The Host," director Bong Joon-ho's 2006 blockbuster. 
    Three of her films -- "The Host," "A Brand New Life" (2009) and "Office" (2014) -- have been invited to the Cannes Film Festival. In another one of Bong's movies -- "Snowpiercer" -- she worked with Hollywood stars like Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt and Ed Harris. 
    "Because I Hate Korea" is her first film in two years since "Samjin Company English Class." 
    Based on the best-selling novel of the same title by Chang Kang-myoung, the film revolves around a woman in her late 20s who moves to New Zealand in search of happiness, leaving her job, family and boyfriend behind. 
    The release date has not yet been decided.
