    Heh? So 두나 was in Kimchi Princess (I believe she’s referring to this restaurant)? How nostalgic!

    Question: With “Cloud Atlas” you achieved the “Hollywood dream.” What do you want to do now?

    Answer: “I don’t think there will be many opportunities like this. If a movie is full of creativity and imagination, I go for it. Also, if it motivates me, that’s good, too. Indie movies are great to play in as well.”

    This is what she really meant -
    “Indie movies are great to play in as well – since more movies are made in India than any other.”

    #2 I actually noticed the very first question that really she doesn’t want to answer the question:

    Q. You just made your Hollywood debut. Is this a dream come true?

    A. I never really dreamed of appearing in a Hollywood movie, but I’m happy that I came across great directors and got to see a whole new world.

    Those who speak Korean (not gbevers) will know that this is a usual polite Korean girl’s way of saying she doesn’t think much of Hollywood films in the first place and that NO IT WASN’T HER DREAM COME TRUE.

    Sure, its not her dream to make 10, 20, 30 times what she makes in Korea. No, not at all!
