The episode, titled “Shaking Tokyo,” is receiving attention from the Korean public because of Bong and Aoi’s collaboration. Bong is the renowned director of the highly successful film “The Host.”

Other cast actors are Teruyuki Kagawa and Naoto Takenaka. Shooting began this month. All episodes of “Tokyo!” are scheduled to screen next year.
With Aoi, another prominent Korean actor Lee Byung-hun is starring in an American-French joint production, “I Come with the Rain,” as a gang leader. The film’s director, Tran Anh Hung, is Vietnamese. Other actors are Hollywood star Josh Hartnett and Takuya Kimura.
