<Final Weapon Bow> Cinematographer, <Quick> Martial Arts Director
Hit directly, break and collide! Real and intense action and sights!

<Going to the End> enhances immersion by instilling more intense tension through realistic images and rough action in an unpredictable development. First of all, cinematographer Kim Tae-seong, who was well-received for his dazzling camera work and action-packed shooting through <The Last Weapon: Bow>, focused on capturing the tight breathing of Lee Seon-gyun and Cho Jin-woong in video, while creating a realistic and live atmosphere as much as possible. Focused. Therefore, instead of restricting the camera movement in advance or shooting within a predetermined frame, the shooting style and direction were flexibly determined according to the scene situation, and the best images of each scene were captured. Here, while naturally following the actor's movements to bring out the dynamism to the maximum, the visual beauty that adds reality through shooting in a time zone that matches the actual situation when shooting on location adds to the rich fun of sights.

In addition, <Going to the End> presents real action that is intense and sympathetic through the participation of martial arts director Choi Dong-heon, who drew attention with the speedy and dynamic action through the movie <Quick>. In particular, in this work, the emphasis was placed on enhancing the audience's empathy through improvised, real hit, broken, and collided actions, rather than a well-organized action. The life-style action that takes full advantage of the characteristics of everyday spaces such as bathrooms and apartment interiors delivers a different kind of pleasure and fun with the intense and intense physical fights between characters in desperate situations and the passionate performances of the actors who refused to double up. Above all, Lee Seon-gyun's acting, who went to film relying on a wire on the 19th floor of an actual apartment building, and directly digested the rough action of getting stuck in the toilet and rolling around, doubles the realism. <Going to the End>, which adds sympathy to the whimsical setting and realistic directing within it, will catch the eye with intense spectacles and actions that double the tension.
