Bong Joon-ho's much-anticipated film "Okja" is set to be released late next month.
Along with Hong Sang-soo's "The Day After - 2017", his film has been invited to this year's Cannes Film Festival, which opens this week.
"I'm a bit nervous as we approach the premiere at Cannes", Bong said during a press event for the film in Seoul on Monday. "But I'm confident the film will keep viewers engrossed for two solid hours".
Netflix put up US$50 million to make the film, whose star-studded cast includes Hollywood A-listers Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal alongside Korean actress Ahn Seo-hyun. Swinton, who also starred in Bong's previous film "Snowpiercer", said she agreed to appear in the movie as soon as she saw Bong's storyboard sketches.
