Kim: After they have been taking pictures this, I used to be on the A cam, taking pictures what we initially deliberate. So I didn’t know what was occurring. Solely after they’d shot it, solely on the monitor, did I see it, once they have been taking part in again. I couldn’t deny how nice it was. On the similar time, I used to be somewhat bit not sure, nervous, about it as a result of the main target was not crystal clear. However I feel that truly added to this emotional sentiment. The dearth of focus is as a result of there’s such a fog round it. Going again to what Park stated, truly, fog was including to this emotion, and gave this portray a sense to it. We see there, the solar down reflecting on the ocean, creating this surreal ingredient to the whole picture. All regardless that I didn’t plan it. [Laughs]
Particularly close to the ocean, we added fog with VFX. Including the fog created one other layer onto it, additional depth to the expertise. All of the fog you see within the movie has been added by VFX. After we hear the ocean waves, the sound of it additionally provides one other layer and brings this complete expertise to a different stage.
Park: In regards to the sunset we see mirrored on the ocean—to start with, we couldn’t actually inform from the footage, but it surely was there. We captured it. The colour is amped up [in post-production], to make it alive. It’s not that it wasn’t there, we simply introduced what was already embedded in it. For this second, I’m particularly grateful for our B-cam operator, and in addition the colorist. Additionally I want to thank the ocean. Clearly, I had wished that there have been grand waves crashing round, however you may’t actually inform what’s going to occur on the day. I hoped that it wouldn’t be a very quiet ocean, however the ocean introduced life. If we’ve got missed this present day, then we’d’ve needed to come again a few months later with a view to shoot it. That was a terrific regarding issue for us. And the factor is, if the waves have been stronger, then that might’ve jeopardized the security of the actors. It was simply the proper stage of waves that we got here by.
The bottom was slippery, which truly labored for us. We didn’t plan on it, however Hae-jun ended up slipping twice. I want to apologize to the performer, the actor, Park Hae-il, however that was not intentional. That was a contented accident. That second, I feel, reveals the way it this man is each unhappy, and in addition idiotic, or comical, on the similar time. It displays the tone that we have been going for. There’s a pathetic ingredient to it.
Kim: And we promise, Park Hae-il didn’t get harm in any respect. [Laughs]
