Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio brings "Django Unchained" to Seoul. DiCaprio plays a racist plantation owner in the Quentin Tarantino drama - a role that presented him with some challenges. SOUNDBITE: Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, saying: "I'm proud to be a part of it and proud to play a character that â€¦ you know â€¦ that represents everything wrong with that time period. It was a very difficult one to take on but one that was very exciting to do nonetheless with the support from the other actors." Rumors of DiCaprio's retirement have been swirling for the past few months. During a press conference the actor set the record straight. SOUNDBITE: Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, saying: "I'm not planning on quitting acting. I think I was interviewed recently by a reporter from Germany, and I said 'I have done three films in a row and been working two years straight, so I'm looking forward to taking a break right now.' I think that got misinterpreted as myself quitting the industry altogether, which is not true. But I am going to take a break right now. Yes, I will be focusing on a lot of different environmental movements." This is DiCaprio's first visit to South Korea and his fans could barely contain their excitement. SOUNDBITE: Jung Keong-Mi, fan, saying (Korean): "I just saw DiCaprio in person and he is extremely handsome. I like him so much. I love you, DiCaprio!" The Oscar winning film will be released on March 21st in South Korea.
