'Hindsight' Contains Energy of Song Kang-ho and Shin Se-kyung

2011/08/11 | 929 views | Permalink | Source

Actor Song Kang-ho said during the production presentation of the movie "Hindsight", "I and Shin Se-kyung seem to form a weird combination, but I am glad that we can present energy from this weird combination, and I hope that the audience can feel the same way as I feel".

Song Kang-ho plays the protagonist named Doo Hyun in "Hindsight", and he expressed his feelings about working with actress Shin Se-kyung during the production presentation held at the CGV Apgujeong on August 10. The two actors have a twenty-year age gap, but they feel affection towards each other in the movie. The movie tells the story of Doo Hyun and Se Bin (Shin Se-kyung). Doo Hyun had left a gang and the gang sends a killer, Se Bin, to kill Doo Hyun, but the two come to have affection during this process. Song Kang-ho said, "There is a saying. If a crow tries to walk like a stork, he will break his legs. I tried to follow the youth, beauty, and passion of Shin Se-kyung, and my legs were almost broken. But I was happy while working with her, and I could learn and feel many things from this beautiful actress". Shin Se-kyung said, "I was really honored simply by the fact that I can work with a great veteran actor, Song Kang-ho. I had worried about my inexperienced acting in front of him, but he has always tried to help me and lead me for our excellent acting together. I have always been touched by his effort and I really appreciate his help. In addition, I had to learn many new things like riding a motorcycle and shooting a rifle for filming this movie and I felt difficulties while learning those things, but I felt more worthwhile and happy. This movie means something to me, and it was a valuable time for me. I hope that many people can have various feelings after watching this movie".

Director Lee Hyun-seung, who is called "Stylist in Chungmuro" for producing movies such as "Blue In You" (1992) and "Il Mare" (2000) with stylish images and emotional stories, produced "Hindsight" after a ten-year break. Director Lee highly praised actor Song Kang-ho at the production presentation. He said, "There has been Song Kang-ho with director Park Chan-wook's style and Song Kang-ho with director Bong Joon Ho's style, and I have agonized over how I can present Song Kang-ho with director Lee Hyun-seung's style and I thought that I had to present Song Kang-ho's totally different appearance in my movie and I regarded it as my duty. Song Kang-ho came forward to challenge himself for this new task and it was the best strength of Song Kang-ho".

Asked about the most suitable Hollywood actor if the movie were reproduced in Hollywood like "Il Mare", he answered, "Even if the movie were produced again in Hollywood, the actor must be Song Kang-ho. Not many Hollywood actors can deliver the message of the movie like Song Kang-ho, as he is the only perfect actor for the role among the world's six billion population. Scenes that were edited were all very good and different, so I really wanted to use those scenes for the movie. For me, it was like picking up food at the buffet where many delicious foods were prepared". He added, "I made four movies in which a couple appeared as the main actors, and those four movies all presented different melodramas. A man and woman can form different relations and the vague relationship of the couples can be very attractive to the audience and can create various imaginations".

Besides Song Kang-ho and Shin Se-kyung, many popular actors including Youn Yuh-jung, Chun Jung-myung, Lee Jong-hyuk, Kim Min-joon, Oh Dal-soo, and Kim Roi-ha appear in the movie, and it will be released at the beginning of next month.
