Ko Gyung-Pyo – Actor – Coin Locker Girl.

FRED’s Matt Micucci interviews Ko Gyung-Pyo, who stars in Coin Locker Girl by Han Jun-hee, presented in the programme of the Semaine de la Critique of the 68th Cannes Film Festival. Ko Gyung Pyo tells us about what attracted him to the role he plays in it, and how he collaborated with the director to achieve the final performance. He also talks about making a big transition from comedy to noir, and what type of challenges he likes to take on as an actor as well as possible future challenges he would like to pursue.

Plot: COIN LOCKER GIRL: As a just-born-baby, ‘Il-young’ gets abandoned in the coin-locker #10 of a subway station. Eight years later, she is sold off to the godmother of a Chinatown ring known as ‘Mom’, and becomes a member of her family. Only the useful ones can survive in this family of Chinatown. Coin Locker Girl is a story of two women who have found their own ways to survive in a cruel, harsh world.
