From colorful colors to nostalgic 90s props
A vivid spectacle that captures the emotions of the times and the personality of the characters
Reply 1998! Reproduce the New-Tro sensibility perfectly!
In order to realize the historical background of Jinhae, Gyeongsangnam-do in 1998, the production team of <Count> went through historical research using various media such as newspapers, broadcasting, and movies. A lot of effort was put into expressing it. In addition, rather than focusing on the sport of boxing, we tried to convey more vivid and dramatic emotions by delicately capturing the expressions and actions of the characters that change according to the flow of the story.
<Count>’s warm emotion, retro-style sensibility of the 90’s, and the efforts of the production team to provide abundant attractions can be found throughout the film. Cinematographer Lee Seong-jae used an aspect ratio of 1.85:1 instead of the 2.35:1 ratio used in previous films to capture the character’s facial expressions and inner details in detail. In addition, in the scene of ‘Siheon”s 1988 Seoul Olympic boxing match in the play, a 4:3 aspect ratio was boldly selected, directing the audience to fall in love with the emotions of that time. In addition to this, the production team completed a richer spectacle by adding the color of <Count> while vividly recreating the game structure and spectators through research on materials such as news and documentaries and consulting with the boxing association for a high-quality production of the match scene. Art director Seo Ju-yeon enhanced the realism of the play with a retro-style warm space design that reproduced the 1990s through painstaking efforts after thorough research on various materials such as broadcasting, movies, newspapers, and advertisements. Spaces that create warm emotions of the 1990s, such as wooden houses and old corner stores that are hard to find now, and the details of small props such as game consoles and snacks that were popular at the time, will summon pleasant memories of the past. Costume director Kim Da-jeong set the era of the 1990s as a big frame and placed colorful colors throughout it to bring a refreshing and lively feeling to the film. ‘Siheon’ is white, ‘Yunwoo’ is red, ‘Hwanju’ is blue, and ‘Composite Eye’ is yellow, giving each character its own color, and even small props such as casts and bandages are colored to add character to each character. . Completed with the production team’s meticulous efforts from filming, art, and costumes, the sights unique to <Count> will provide memories to some and new fun to others, and will be a viewing point that cannot be missed.
