New book on actor Ko A-Sung set for release on Thursday
Muju Film Festival is collaborating with Una Labo Actorology to publish a book “The Next Actor Ko A Sung” on Thursday, the festival announced on Wednesday.
The “Next Actor” series, which started last year, selects one young actor and focuses on their work and contribution to the next centennial of the Korean film industry. Park Jung-min was the first chosen for the series.
The book is divided into eight chapters which include various interview excerpts and photos of behind-the-scenes moments from Ko’s six main films and drama series — films “The Host” (2006), “A Brand New Life” (2009), “Snowpiercer” (2013), “Office” (2015), “A Resistance” (2019), and SBS drama series “Heard it through the Grapevine” (2015).
A special chapter about Ko was written by famed director Bong Joon-ho.
To mark the release of the book, Ko will participate in the opening ceremony of the eighth Muju Film Festival on Thursday evening and meet her fans via an online live-stream on Friday at 4:40 p.m. through the festival’s official social media accounts.
Una Labo Actorology, established by film journalist Baek Una in 2018, is a publishing house dedicated to researching and publishing works about actors.
