I am going to say now that she is playing Monica Chang, and that she builds Ultron in South Korea.

Gotta admit, girl knew how to work her way into Marvel but Korean media likes to over exaggerate when Korean actors do Hollywood films. Heck she could have the same amount of importance as Fan Bing Bing in IM3's Chinese cut version, don't be so quick to assume someone that could be vital just yet.

AOU filming in South Korea from March 20 through April 12.
22 days of location shooting suggests to me that Korea is going to be VERY important to the plot of this movie.

I don't think this is going to be a case of throwaway scenes and characters, like the overhyped IM3 location shoots in Beijing.

Plus, THR is reporting that Evans and Scar Jo will be there. This leads me to believe that she'll be a comic book character.

Can I just say that she's really cute. Seriously, she's adorable. I am curious to see who she's playing, given that Marvel is going to the trouble of keeping the role a secret. That's kind of pointless is she's just playing some random throwaway character.

Rumored roles: Jocasta, Monica Chang, Madame Hydra and Wasp. The latter seems unlikely since I still think Janet is going to be played by Evangeline Lilly, but we'll see.

Yeah they're filming in SK but it doesn't mean she's gonna be in it for the majority of the schedule. Here's a K-entertainment site that discusses the news.

"In addition, Walt Disney said, "Soo Hyun has been ultimately cast as a supporting actress among the minor characters of 'Avengers 2.'" She will be taking part in the filming in Korea planned for April."

I can guarantee there's a snowball's chance in hell she's playing any of those characters.

Her character involves playing a doctor to Tony. The only character in the comics who matches her profile (asian doctor to Tony Stark) is Su Yin.

You are probably correct on this one:

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

I think that officially narrows it down to Su Yin or Suzi Endo.

I'm hoping for the latter since there is considerable story/background and more long-term MCU impact due to Kim's age. Per the Cybermancer bio, she ties into Mandarin, Ultron, Civil War, High Evolutionary, and potentially other cosmic properties like GOTG (and perhaps Silver Surfer if the rights ever happen to revert).

Su-Yin is just kind of simple with her established background to date. However, the neuro-surgeon aspect would fit very well with Tony Stark's anxiety/PTSD and the creation of Ultron.

Regardless, I just want to see a strong and significant Asian character and performance. I really dislike racial stereotypes.

That seems unlikely. She's Su Yin and it's probably a one off role unless she appears as a hospital colleague for Dr. Steven Strange.

Wouldn't be opposed to the idea of her doing a small part strictly as Janet Van Dyne (no Wasp yet), though I think it's unlikely.

In the Ultimates comic series, I believe Wasp is of Asian ethnicity.

I the internet has spoiled people. The reason that maybe Marvel hasn't said anything is because she's simply not important. It's like Doctor "person you will only see for this one scene and never again". Her announcement may be more for the benefit of other places and not western MCU fans.

Oops sorry I accidentally set the link up as an image http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=57222

Anyway in summary, marvel just decided to take one of their characters from an obscure korean web series and make her into the main marvel u. She seems the most likely contact even if it's just her in her civvies

White Fox? Maybe, but I kinda doubt it. The White Fox deal only happened yesterday, while KSH has been part of the film for over a year now. Pretty sure they already had her identity pegged long before the White Fox acquisition.
