  • [INTERVIEW] Director Ryoo Seung-wan - Part 1

    2010/11/18, Source,
    Director Ryoo Seung-wan [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] It has already been ten years since director Ryoo Seung-wan, whom we thought would always be the 'action kid', showed up in the film industry with "Die Bad". And while having shot ten movies during that time, he has been on a break over movies that have flopped, agonized over people not liking his scripts, and is now old enough to look back in embarrassment on childish remarks he made a long time ago. However, his movie "The Unjust" is the result of what he describes as having "lived through and felt". And it presents us with a form of shock that is different to what the audience has felt from his previous films -- a sense of reality so vivid that is weighs down us as very much the Republic of Korea that we live in today. What happened to him? In his interview with 10Asia, Ryoo Seung-wan talks about "what hasn't changed but has changed". * This article may contain spoilers. 10: The response to "The Unjust" had been extremely positive even ahead of its premiere, securing the highest number of advance ticket reservations and seeing many favorable articles on the movie. You must be happy doing this interview. Ryoo Seung-wan: I should be modest but it's true that I'm happy,...More
  • [INTERVIEW] Director Ryoo Seung-wan - Part 2

    2010/11/18, Source,
    Director Ryoo Seung-wan [Chae Ki-won/10Asia]  10: But the empathy felt toward the characters or organizations within the movie is almost at a national level ? to the extent that it seems almost surprising that the actors felt the script doesn't make sense. Don't you believe discord and conflict between prosecutors and the police, and corruption within public organizations exists everywhere quite openly? Ryoo Seung-wan: But it wasn't the incidents within the movie or the structure of the story that drew me to the script. I wasn't even No. 1 on the list of directors the production company had in mind for the film. What I was interested in was the individuals who get caught up in the incident. Many people who bow their heads and go on their knees in front of others to make a living but wait for the time that the situation will turn around. Including myself. (laugh) That's why I wasn't too worried when something that occurs in the movie happened in reality. The movie focused more on the individuals. 10: What left a strong impression was that nobody had absolute power when it comes to their relationships. It was a pandemonium, with no entrance nor exit, where the power structure and the winner and loser constantly changes. Ryoo Seung-wan: Of them, I think Jooyang (Ryoo Seung-beom) in particular was similar to me because a movie director is allowed to exercise dictatorship,...More
