    The Korea Times reports that stars from Casino Royale made an appearance Sunday, 10 December for a press conference at Shilla Hotel in Seoul, South Korea.

    Daniel Craig, Caterina Murino, and director Martin Campbell attended the event as part of the film’s world promotional tour.

    ‘He (James Bond) falls in love, makes mistakes and gets hurt. He is a little bit more human,’ said Craig at the event when asked what made his 007 different from the others in the series.

    ‘I think I admire all the Bonds, but my personal favorite is Sean Connery,’ he said. ‘I think what he did was fine. But when we film, it’s not my job to compare, that’s your job. I don’t make comparisons.’

    Craig chose From Russia With Love has his favourite Bond film and 2003’s Old Boy and 2006’s Sympathy for Lady Vengeance as his favourite Korean films.

    Keeping Casino Royale as realistic as possible, Campbell said: ‘We also added a tremendous amount of action, which is also an integral part of all James Bond movies. We certainly kept the humor.’

    ‘A lot of what Bond fans expect, but hopefully a lot of material that they don’t expect,’ he said.

    Casino Royale opens for general release in South Korea on 21 December.
