Star Focus: Brad Pitt says he came to Korea for food, not for ‘Bullet Train’ promotion

Brad Pitt doesn't need an introduction! Let's just say that he has cemented a place in every person's heart. And now, he is looking to rock South Korea with his latest movie, Bullet Train. Ladybug {Brad Pitt's Character name], is an unlucky assassin who is determined to do his job peacefully after having too many failures. Fate, however, has set different plans for him as his latest mission puts him on a collision course with assassins from around the globe - all with connected yet conflicting objectives - on the world's fastest train!

The cast of the movie is sure to entice the audience. In addition to Brad Pitt as Ladybug, the movie has Joey King as the Prince, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Tangerine, Brian Tyree Henry as Lemon, Andrew Kohi as Yuichi Kimura, and Sandra Bullock as Maria Beetle. Since the movie's release on August 24, 2022, it has already been frequented by 137,462 cinemagoers. To build the craze of the movie in South Korea, Brad Pitt and Aaron Taylor-Johnson visited Seoul, South Korea.

Making his fourth visit to Korea, Hollywood star Brad Pitt showed off his witty personality during a press conference for his new movie “Bullet Train” held at Conrad Seoul in Yeouido, Seoul, on August 19, 2022. The actors were welcomed to the press conference with cakes. Pitt‘s cake was shaped like a Korean fortune pouch called a “bokjumeoni” and was decorated with ladybugs, which is his character’s code name in the movie. Taylor-Johnson also received a Korean fortune pouch cake decorated with tangerines.

“I am not here for the movie, I am here for the food,” Pitt said after entering the room. He went on and briefly talked about his character, Ladybug as well. “Ladybug is what, in America, we call ’a chump.‘ He is a guy who can’t get out of his own way. No matter how hard he tries, he keeps getting it wrong. That was the fun in playing him,” he said. “I‘ve always thought the bad guys or the chumps are the most fun to play.”
