(LEAD) 'The Spy Gone North' director: Actual spy operations aren't like in the movies

 

(ATTN: UPDATES with more remarks from press conference in paras 10-13; ADDS movie's international trailer and a photo)

 

SEOUL, July 3 (Yonhap) -- One interesting thing about director Yoon Jong-bin's latest film, "The Spy Gone North," is that it has little action for a spy movie. But it is tense the whole way through with the main characters from South and North Korea involved in a tricky psychological war, according to many critics who saw the film at the Midnight section of this year's Cannes Film Festival in May.

 

"I had no choice because the film is based on a true story," director Yoon Jong-bin said during a promotional press conference for the film in Seoul on Tuesday. "As a filmmaker, I felt a lot of pressure to make a spy film without action. Directors can resort to action scenes to immerse audiences into their films."

After much thought, Yoon decided to make it the main concept of the movie: a spy flick without much action but plenty of tension, only with the situation where the protagonist conducts a fraught covert operation to infiltrate the highest ranks of the North Korean leadership.

 

Hwang Jung-min, who played the South Korean spy Park Seok-yeong, said it was a very tricky job to simultaneously deliver multiple emotions.

 

"Unlike typical Hollywood spy movies full of physical action, the film features a 'verbal war' where both parties try to deceive or are deceived by each other," said the veteran actor. "While pretending to tell the truth to the dialogue partner, I had to let the audience understand what I had deep in my mind. It was difficult to deliver such multi-layered emotions."

   In the film set in the 1990s, Park goes undercover as a businessman in North Korea to infiltrate its nuclear facilities using the codename "Black Venus." He approaches Ri Myung-un (Lee Sung-min), a high-ranking North Korean official in charge of earning foreign currency for his country in China, and succeeds in arranging personal meetings with the North's supreme leader after years of maneuvering.

 

But Park is plagued by an inner conflict after observing the two Koreas' leaders making a secret deal to prevent liberal candidate Kim Dae-jung from winning the 1997 presidential election.

 

The film is based on an autobiography of real-life ex-spy Park Chae-seo, who operated as "Black Venus." The director said he decided to fictionalize the story after reading it.

 

"I first came to know the story of the spy codenamed 'Black Venus' while preparing for a movie about the state intelligence agency," Yoon said. "I was surprised to know that the country's intelligence agency conducts such an operation."

 

As the film was shot over six months in the first half of last year, the director said he has never imagined the currently thawing tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

 

When questioned about how he felt seeing the first summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on April 27, as a director who made a movie about an intelligence war between the two Koreas, Yoon said that he was touched and filled with emotion, not as a filmmaker but as a South Korean citizen. "In particular, I was so moved to see on the TV the two leaders shaking hands that my eyes welled up with tears."

   He expressed hope that his film would be able to provide a chance to look back on the past two decades in inter-Korean relations.

 

"Although my film portrays an intelligence war, it has a story of people in its heart. It's a film about co-existence and reconciliation," he added.

 

The movie also stars Cho Jin-woong of "The Handmaiden" as director of the overseas bureau of the state spy agency who orchestrates the covert operation and Ju Ji-hoon of "Along With The Gods: The Two Worlds" as a senior official of the North Korean spy agency.

 

"The Spy Gone North" is set to open in local theaters on Aug. 8

Will ‘Along with the Gods’ create a second box office smash?

 

 

Korean blockbuster film series “Along with the Gods” is ready to start its second story, more confident than ever.

The “Along With the Gods” series is based on a popular web comic of the same name, written and illustrated by cartoonist Joo Ho-min. The story deals with the afterlife from the perspective of traditional Korean mythology.

The first installment “Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds,” released in December, was the second most commercially successful movie in Korean box office history, selling over 14.4 million tickets.

“I was so pressured and overwhelmed by the success of the first part,” director Kim Yong-hwa said at a press event held Friday in eastern Seoul. “I guess the audience could have been generous about the first film as it was a domestic one.”

He continued, “But I started the first film to make the second part. After finishing it, it was so great that I thought, ‘Did I make this?’”

The first and second parts were shot together last year, the first such endeavor in the Korean film industry. While the first film was about what the afterlife is like, the second focuses on the characters and their stories.

The cast -- including Ha Jung-woo, Ju Ji-hoon and Kim Hyang-gi -- stressed the difficulties of shooting two films simultaneously. The three play spirits who escort and defend the deceased. 

 

20180706000531_0.jpg

 

“The second part’s emotion is much more agitated. We had to act for two films in one scene. It was difficult to express the gap of emotions, twice as hard other films,” Ha said.

Ju agreed, saying, “I thought, we might fool ourselves. So we had to talk a lot. I balanced my emotions, watching clips of other actors.”

The second segment had to be reshot, as two of the actors, Oh Dal-soo and Choi Il-hwa were replaced when they were accused earlier this year of sexual misconduct.

Meanwhile, the production company aims to produce parts three and four of the series. Won Dong-yeon, the chief of Realies Pictures said in an interview with local media outlet last month, two more sequels for the series will be simultaneously shot next year.

“Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days” is to hit local theaters on Aug. 1.

Watch: “Along With the Gods 2” Teases Audience With Mysterious Plot Line In Main Trailer

 

Along-With-the-Gods.jpg

 

“Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days” has dropped its main trailer!

 

After the success of the first movie of this two part series, titled “Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds,” the second film, “Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days,” prepares to become this summer’s hit film with the main trailer.

 

The film will explore how three grim reapers try to guide their 49th soul to the underworld with the promise of reincarnation. They meet Sung Joo Shin (Ma Dong Seok), who knows of their past from 1000 years ago. Through their meeting where they teeter on the edge of the past, the present world, and the afterlife, the connections between their long-forgotten secrets come to light.

 

In the trailer, Kang Rim (Ha Jung Woo) tries to push ahead with a trial that seems impossible in order to uncover the truth that is entangled with Soo Hong (Kim Dong Wook)’s death. Hae Won Maek (Joo Ji Hoon) and Duk Choon (Kim Hyang Gi) try to find out their forgotten pasts after meeting Sung Joo Shin, who came to know of their pasts after going back to earth by the order of Yeom Ra (Lee Jung Jae). The grim reapers of the past life slowly begin to show the veiled stories of their lives.

 

In addition, although Sung Joo Shin is demoted in hell for being a great nuisance, he tries to do his best for a human he must protect, making the film more exciting as he reveals to the grim reapers that he was the grim reaper to bring their past human selves to hell.

 

“Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days” will be released in South Korean theaters on August 1.
