South Korean actors Kim Hye Soo, Yoo Ah In, Heo Joon Ho and Jo Woo Jin held a press conference to promote their new film Default (also known as National Bankruptcy Day) in Seoul on November 19.
The movies tells the behind-the-scenes story of the negotiations that took place during the 1997 Asian financial crisis, and is the first Korean film to revolve around this theme. French actor Vincent Cassel also has a role in the film, and Hye Soo shared several scenes with him.
"The most difficult part is not speaking English, but having to understand the meaning of the economic terms," she said.
Ah In, who plays a former banker who sees the financial crisis as a chance for investment, said, "It's my honour to work with so many good actors, but it's a bit of a pity that I didn't have that many scenes with them."
