“Originally we planned to shoot another film, ‘Arena,’ in July and shoot ‘Agent Ling’ in December,” said the director Alexander Bok, “but for multiple reasons we changed the timeline. We will finish the production of both films before the end of November this year and thereafter do the postproduction concurrently. We plan to release the two films in 2023.”

Her educational background also fits the role and helps her understand the character more easily. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in media studies from the UK, studied at Syracuse University in New York, and obtained her master’s degree in risk management from Columbia University.
