Matt Damon has made a jokey reference to Psy's Gangnam Style as he stopped off in South Korea.
The Bourne star visited the capital Seoul with his Elysium co-star Sharlto Copley for the press tour for Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi film, their only stopover in Asia.
"Everyone in America knows it's a huge [film] market and a growing market. I wasn't surprised when I was told by the studio that I was coming here. I hope next time I can bring my family here," Matt said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The 42-year-old added: "I have four kids so believe me, we all know Gangnam Style."
Matt also said he would "jump at the opportunity" to work with local director Park Chan-wook.
Sharlto, who is starring in Spike Lee's Oldboy remake, paid tribute to Park's Oldboy film.
"I really love the original Korean film," he said.
"I felt an affinity [with Korean cineastes] as a South African coming from outside of Hollywood - doing something very different, very creative, and finding it embraced by [Hollywood]. And I think that is the case in Oldboy and the case of Gangnam Style," he added.
