Renowned Korean director Bong Joon-ho chose Aoi Yu to star in his short film "Shaking Tokyo", part of an omnibus film project titled "TOKYO!". Filming is under way and Aoi Yu plays a pizza delivery girl who changes the life of a hikikomori, the Japanese name for someone with agoraphobia.

BONG made his name with contemporary classics like "Barking Dogs Never Bite" and "Memories of Murder". However, it's his latest "The Host" which is the major influence on his name internationally..

Aoi Yu caught attention with her role in Hanna and Alice. Her role in "Hula Girls" by the Korean-Japanese director LEE Sang-il gained her a lot of international attention as the film has been successful in many film festivals.

The other two episodes of the omnibus will be directed by Michel Gondry and Leos Carax. The film's are scheduled for release next year.
