Why did they pick up the story after the disaster?
On the afternoon of the 18th, a movie ‘Birthday’ preview and press conference was held at Seoul CGV Yongsan Ipark Mall. Actor Seol Kyung-koo Jeon Do-yeon, including director Lee Jong-un, attended.
‘Birthday’ is a story about sharing a memorable memory with those left behind on the birthday of a son who died on April 16, 2014.
Director Lee Jong-un said, “It is not made to want to make, but made such an effort. I did my best and hoped that there would not be another wound. So I was careful in the process of making it, “he confessed.
Seol Kyung-gu and Jeon Do-yeon confided that there was a lot of trouble before the movie. But he had to have a ‘birthday’.
Sul Kyung-gu said, “If you were not worried, it is a lie. I did not have a schedule to shoot this movie when I had my ‘birthday’. “It seemed to me that I had to read the book and fix my mind by adjusting the schedule.”
“After this disaster, the poet wrote the poem, and the person who wrote the novel wrote the novel. It was also a matter of time, but we filmed because we were filmmakers. I thought about it for a week and decided to do this work. ”
Jeon Do-yeon also said, “I was also worried. “This story was genuine and we chose it with courage to tell the stories of those who have to live in the future,” he said.
Director Lee Jong-un said, “I volunteered in 2015. I met a bereaved family there, had a birthday party, took pictures, and so on. To meet a birthday party, I meet my parents for 3 weeks and make a lot of preparations. When I meet those three weeks, I know a lot. ”
“At that time, when I was not old enough, I did not like to talk about time and time in many media. I thought I would not do such misunderstandings if I showed them now. The mind was firm. I wanted to show it to many people. I am more grateful than my firmness that I think producers, investors, and actors who are willing to make such a movie when I bring it so small. The staffs were very courageous and did their best. ”
Lee Jong-seon said, “Jeon Do-yeon Sul Kyung-gug was known to the past, but it was first rejected by Jeon Do-yeon actor. But then again, it was a good story. Sung Kyung-gu has a long-time co-worker Lee Chang-dong’s ‘Peppermint Candy’. It is a movie that changed my life, but I am honored to be with two such great actors. ”
Finally, coach Lee Jong-un said, “It is hard to feel confronted and it can feel like a big wound. I can say that. We are all in trouble, “he said.” Some people can come a little earlier. I hope people who know that it is not just sad and tough can bring someone in and introduce it. ”
Jeon Do – yeon also said, “I think it ‘s a movie that can create strength to live well over the pain. Please cheer. ”
‘Birthday’ will be released on April 3.
