1. The title story of <Blood's Nut (淚)>

'The day my blood pours like rain… I will dry your blood and apply your bones!'

The movie <The Nursing of Blood> is a completely different story from Lee In-jik's new novel 'The Nursing of Blood(淚)'. Rather than borrowing the title from Lee In-jik's new novel, Phoebe, which suggests the beginning of a serial murder case in the movie, is condensed into letters. It symbolizes the meaning of The horror of the mysterious serial murder case of the movie <Blood Nursing> begins with the rumor that it was hemlock, and this Phoebe is given to the villagers in the meaning of tears shed by the souls who suffered an unfair death. become an object of fear. For this reason, <Blood (血) Nou(淚)> is a title that contains both the image and the history of the central event in the film.

2. Why does 'Donghwado' have to be an isolated island?

The place where the horrendous serial murders take place in <The Blood of the Blood> is none other than the isolated island 'Donghwado'.
The reason that <Blood of Blood> could have become even more brutal when it was chosen as the background of an isolated island is due to the peculiarity of the space called 'island' at the end of the Joseon Dynasty. Unlike land, where transportation was developed, the island at that time was an independent place that was difficult for outsiders to access. In addition, if the inland is exposed to various dangers on a daily basis due to trade and prosperity, the island is like an ivory tower, surrounded by its own peace, composed only of islanders. For this reason, small changes that distort peace can lead to huge events. In addition, the fact that the murderer who committed the serial murder must also be someone on the island is the core of the fear of 'Donghwado'.
Second, because of the brutality of the concept of 'wealth', which was first created in an isolated space. As the modern factory 'paper mill' was built, the wealth accumulated on the island fuels the greed that writhes within human beings and amplifies fear. As wealth accumulates excessively in only one place, human greed for material also sprouts and is completed as an optimal place where any event can occur.

Art director Min Eon-ok completed the 'Pogu Village Set' and 'The Paper Mill Set' by mobilizing sufficient historical evidence and imagination to reproduce the 'more brutal because it is isolated' fairy tale. In order to create a dangerously sharp and dreary fairy tale, about 200 staff members were mobilized to build a huge set that took three months of sleepless nights. It not only provides the spatial background of the serial murder case, but also plays the role of the criminal who drives the incident and the ending.

3. Scenario, the Joseon Dynasty's serial killings.

The film <The Blood of the Blood>, which was meticulously crafted through four years of planning, boasts a solid scenario as much as the long preparation period. The fear and confusion of 'Won-gyu', the main character to prevent continued murder amid the commotion of the public, introduces maximum thrill and tension to the audience as if watching serial murders in real life. An isolated island, a serial murder that mimics the 'five extreme punishments' that took place on the island, five undisclosed contributors, and a brutal murder case that lasts for five days progress in a tense manner as if strangling the viewer's neck.
In addition, scientific materials such as signature verification, secret room inference, and autopsy of a corpse completed through appropriate historical investigations and a space setting that goes beyond imagination as a paper mill that shows the development of industry in the late Joseon Dynasty based on physics and mechanics added a modern charm to the play. . Interesting elements such as the clash of shamanistic beliefs and modern culture brought in from the West were also perfectly melted into the movie <Blood Silk> by reconstructing the serial murders of the Joseon Dynasty.
Through a long-term plan, a composition that goes beyond that plan, and a realistic setting that fills the composition with texture, the serial murder case of the Joseon Dynasty in 2005 will be realistically unfolded before the eyes of the audience. am.

4. Rediscovery of Actors – Cha Seung-won, Park Yong-woo, Ji Sung

Cha Seung-won captivates the audience with his sharp charisma through <Blood's Nut (淚)>.
After rising to the top as a top model, he transformed into an actor and showed strong acting through <End of Century> in 1999 and <Riverame> in 2000, and solidified his position as an actor. Taking on the intelligent investigator 'Won-gyu' in <Blood Nut (淚)>, he once again shows strong acting.
In particular, he is smart and proud of himself, so he tries to solve a serial murder case with scientific logic, but in the course of the investigation, a series of supernatural phenomena that break his own stereotypes and deviations in reasoning lead to conflicts and confusion. He exerted extreme concentration to play a three-dimensional and multifaceted character.
Showing the psychological conflict of an investigator who encountered an endless serial murder case and the strong charisma that rushes to solve the case in the midst of the conflict, he said, 'Won-gyu does not change the actor, it is only completed anew through the character'. It completely melted into the character of '.
Cha Seung-won said that while he was chasing the culprit of a serial murder, he put all his energy into recreating Won-gyu in the movie to the extent that he could not sleep due to a nightmare. In fact, at the end of filming, despite the fact that he suffered a severe injury from a broken rib while filming the chase scene, he felt pain only after filming was over.

In addition, Park Yong-woo, who has performed full of personality through KBS historical drama <Unmanned Age> and the movie <Samurai> along with Cha Seung-won, takes on the role of 'human rights', who holds the real power of Donghwado paper mill, and raises tension by confronting investigator 'Won-gyu' in every case. In addition, Ji-sung, who received great love from viewers through the SBS drama <The Last Dance With Me>, takes on the secret character ‘Dooho’, adding to the charm of a serial murder case.

In order to summon the serial murder case of the Joseon Dynasty into reality, the actors completed <Blood Nue> with all their might, based on the rules and laws of the Joseon Dynasty, such as horseback riding and tea ceremony, and even changes in makeup, costumes, and acting. . Thanks to this, in the movie, we can rediscover the three actors who are different from their previous appearances. The perfect harmony of the three actors, each approaching with different charms, is an important factor leading to the movie <Blood Nude>.

5. Formation of the best staff for a well-made movie

Director Kim Dae-seung, who unraveled the genre of melodrama with a mysterious sensibility through the movie <Bungee Jumping> with delicate psychological descriptions. In <Blood Nursing (淚)>, along with the psychology of the characters, the power of a huge drama that unravels the brutal serial murders and incidents of the Joseon Dynasty was added. In addition, cinematographer Choi Young-hwan and lighting director Kim Seong-gwan, who created a high-quality screen through <Reconstruction of Crime>, once again showed off their fantastic breath and vividly reproduced the 'scene of the serial murder of 1808'.
In addition, Min Eon-ok, art director of <Chunhyang-dang>, spent 10 months sleeping through the night for the Donghwado and the paper mill set and painstakingly reassembled Donghwado, where anger, fear, and greed reside in reality. Producer Kim Seong-jae, who produced wild action with <No Blood or Tears>, and designer Jeong Kyung-hee of <Blood Nude>, who designed a special costume for <Blood Nude> with new settings such as hanbok using the color of gal clothes and clothes made of paper, hair and makeup From Pil-nam Han, the makeup team leader of <Scandal: The Great Leader of the Joseon Dynasty>, who breathed life into the characters of the times, to Young-wook Cho, the music director of the movie music industry that moves people's emotions through magnificent music, the movie <Blood Nuo> is by far the best. It will be remembered as a well-made movie created by the perfect breathing of the staff.
