I found an unknown quote regarding Tom and Jerry relationship and I guess that is what we are going to look for on the set:

Some relationships are like Tom and Jerry.
They tease each other, knock down each other,
irritate each other, but can’t live without each other.

Song Kang Ho Teases Gong Yoo About Never Buying Dinner

Song Kang Ho Teases Gong Yoo About Never Buying Dinner

Actor Song Kang Ho pokes fun at his friend and junior actor Gong Yoo.

On the August 14 broadcast of MBC’s “Entertainment Relay,” the cast of upcoming film “The Age of Shadows” sit down for an interview.

During the show, actress Han Ji Min shares a story from when they filmed the movie and says, “On Song Kang Ho’s birthday party, Gong Yoo treated us to beef.”

Song Kang Ho reveals, “Gong Yoo is famous for not doing staff dinners. That instance of buying beef was extremely rare. I ate food from him for the first time then,” leaving Gong Yoo dumbfounded.

Gong Yoo attempts to explain, “Let me clarify. I have no opportunity to buy him meals because he’s always doing it first.”

Song Kang Ho hilariously responds, “That’s because you never do.”

Their film “Age of Shadows” is set to premiere in September.

"The Age of Shadows" Song Kang-ho and Gong Yoo's still cuts

Source: STAR MBN via Hancinema.net

2 stills of Song Kang-ho and Gong Yoo in the movie "The Age of Shadows" were released.

At the end of the 1920s, there was a heroic group that brought in bombs to Kyeong-seong from Shanghai to destroy key Japanese facilities. Song Kang-ho and Gong Yoo co-star in this movie.

The stills show just how intense the movie is. Song Kang-ho plays Lee Jeong-chool, a Joseon born who is now a Japanese police. Gong Yoo plays Kim Woo-jin, the new leader of the heroic independence group. These two approach each other by hiding their identities.

Constantly under suspicion, the intensity between the two is enough to draw attention of viewers. They were serious and focused during the making but when cameras went off, they were like brothers to each other.

Gong Yoo and Song Kang-ho spent a long time in Shanghai for the movie and they always had deep discussions about their work.

Gong Yoo said, "Song Kang-ho was like a monster to me. It was hard to believe that the actor I respect the most was right in front of me". Song Kang-ho said, "He's got soul and he is perfect for Kim Woo-jin".

Director Kim Jee-woon says ‘Age of Shadows’ is ‘heated’ noir

When director Kim Jee-woon first started filming his newest historical thriller “The Age of Shadows,” he had set his mind on making a “cold” noir flick featuring a ruthless world of spies. 

But the film turned out to be much more “heated” than originally intended, he told reporters after a press screening of the film in Seoul on Tuesday.

His original references had been classics like the 1949 black-and-white thriller “The Third Man” and the 1965 Western espionage flick “The Spy Who Came In from the Cold” -? both set in the Cold War era.

In the course of filming, however, Kim discovered that the period of the Japanese occupation of Korea, in which the film is set, had a completely different atmosphere. 

“The occupation era was a time when patriots sacrificed their lives without regret to recover a country that had been lost,” said Kim. “With that story in the center, the film couldn’t help but get heated toward the end.” 

Though the film ultimately diverged from what he had originally intended, Kim said he chose to “not force a certain filmic self-consciousness or style” and instead “follow the direction of the story and its characters.”

“The Age of Shadows” is the most recent in a string of historical flicks to hit Korean theaters this year -? including “The Last Princess” and “Operation Chromite.”

Set in the 1920s, it chronicles the story of independence fighter Kim Woo-jin, played by actor Gong Yoo, and his group of comrades who hatch a plan to smuggle bombs from Shanghai into the Korean capital in order to overthrow the Japanese government. 

Actor Song Kang-ho plays Lee Jeong-chool, a Korean national who has sided with the Japanese. A high-ranking officer in the Japanese police, Lee is responsible for spying on and ultimately capturing the independence fighters. 

The film aims to explore the “complexity” of the era, according to director Kim, in which coexisted those who spied for the opposition and those that risked their lives to recover their lost country. 

“It tries to show a period in which people had no choice but to become spies,” he said. 

It’s not a film that chases who the spy is or isn’t, but shows that anybody can be a spy,” said actor Song. 

Actress Han Ji-min stars as independence fighter Yeon Gye-soon. Actor Lee Byung-hun makes a cameo appearance as Jeong Chae-san, leader of the independence fighters. 

“The Age of Shadows” has been invited to screen at the 41st annual Toronto International Film Festival, to take place on Sept. 8-18, and the 73rd Venice International Film Festival, set for Aug. 31-Sept. 10.

With a budget of $8.62 billion, it is the first ever Korean-language film to be produced by Warner Bros., which will also helm local distribution. Korean sales company Finecut picked up the film’s international rights in April. 

Kim previously directed “I Saw the Devil” and “The Good, The Bad, The Weird.” His Hollywood directorial debut was in 2013 with “The Last Stand,” featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger. 

The film opens in local theaters on Sept. 7.
