The Curtain Call program intended for more established thesps will include Korean-American John Cho (“Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle”), Japan’s Tatsuya Fujiwara (“Death Note”), Korean Lim Soo-jung (“I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK”), Thailand’s Ananda Everingham (“Ploy”), China’s Yu Nan (Berlinale winner “Tuya’s Marriage” as well as “Speed Racer”), and Korean Zo In-sung (“A Dirty Carnival”).
