However, when asked about the release and future production of his works, the actor declined. “I don’t know what will happen”, Kang Dong Won said. 

According to Kang Dong Won, who has over 20 years of experience, when choosing a script, the most important thing is its scenario, saying: “I have a strong tendency to dislike similar things, so I have done 10 works with new directors. I’m strangely attracted to such projects, and would often talk a lot with the director and the production crew.” 

Kang Dong Won recently attended the 75th Cannes International Film Festival as a major cast member of “Broker”, a film directed by Hirokazu Koreeda. 

“Broke” revolves around the special journey of people related to a service called “baby box”, and is scheduled to be released in Korea on June 8th. The highly-anticipated film will feature Kang Dong Won, Song Kang Ho, Bae Doo Na, IU, and more.
