An actress who received “funeral photo” as a birthday gift at the age of 14
One of the scenes that symbolizes Korean film industry’s history is the scene where middle school student Go Ah-sung was captured by a monster in Bong Joon-ho’s “The Host”.
Go Ah-sung, who was 14 years old at that time, became the youngest to win the Best New Actress award at the Blue Dragon Film Awards due to her excellent performance in “The Host”. Since then, she has established herself as an adult actress through “The Beauty Inside”, “Office”, “The King” and “Samjin Company English Class”.
Recently, Go Ah-sung, who is active in “Tracer”, appeared on “Knowing Bros” and unveiled various travias during “The Host” days. She also talked about this “funeral photo” on “On & Off”.
The production team of “The Host” gave her a “funeral photo”, which was a prop in the movie, as a birthday gift. She brought it home and it was so funny that she continued to keep it…
After that, every time a work was finished, she got to own a symbolic prop. Especially whenever she played the role of an office worker, she always took home an employee ID card.
Go Ah-sung worked with Bong Joon-ho once again in “Snowpiercer“. Director Bong Joon-ho praised Go Ah-sung for being an actress like a “tranquilizer” at a difficult filming site. There are many fans waiting for the two’s collaboration in another work.
