Going to the Sundance Film Festival is what I have dreamed of as an actor. I am thrilled and nervous to see my dream come true, the actor said. I will do my best to promote the Korean film overseas.
Co-produced by Koreas Now Film and the U.S.Vox3 Films, the producer of films such as Secretary and Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus, Never Forever deals with a bold and clandestine love affair set in New York.
Since the festival has established itself as the most important film festival discovering new films and directors, the nomination of his film can serve as a stepping stone for Ha to expand his activities to Hollywood.
