The image of two people who have common concerns of love, friendship, and dreams conveying empathy and support to each other conveys a message of empathy that transcends the times.

[ PRODUCTION NOTE ]
A meeting of analog and trendy sensibility!
Perfectly draw the points of the past and modern times!
1999 – 2022, the movie <Donggam>, which goes well over 20 years, was completed as a work that can feel both the analog sensibility of the past and the trendy atmosphere of the present day with the passion of the production team to make use of the characteristics of each era. .
First of all, Korea University, which is the center of the film and a space that connects 'dragons' and 'patterns' living in different eras, was born as a result of the efforts of the production team who directly found numerous universities in Korea. The production team, who wanted to realistically capture the campus where the freshness of youth blooms, on the screen, selected a total of five campuses, including Soongsil University and the University of Seoul, as locations to complete Korea University. In particular, in order to express the scenery of the campus, where the atmosphere is clearly different depending on the past and present, although it is the same space, the production team made it possible to distinguish the difference of the times by differentiating the color and texture of the exterior of the building. Here, director Seo Eun-young used colors with emphasis on primary colors in 1999 and achromatic colors in 2022 to direct the movie to be enjoyed more colorfully.
The completeness of the work can also be confirmed through the detailed props. The HAM wireless device, which is a medium for special communication between 'dragon' and 'pattern' and one of the most important props in the movie, was found after looking into the professional community one by one from domestic and overseas markets. The production team, who said, “I wanted to stimulate the emotions of the audience just by putting it on the desk,” checked small design elements and faded colors one by one to explore HAM wireless devices and optimized the work through the Korea Amateur Radio League, a gathering of domestic wireless enthusiasts. By securing the equipment, it was possible to convey the emotion of the HAM wireless device to the audience. In addition, when selecting props from the near and distant past of the 90s, historical research was thoroughly conducted to add richness to the work by adding efforts to obtain and restore objects from 1999.
The efforts of the production team, who have devoted their heart and soul to ensure that the past and present can be harmoniously transformed, will convey the various sights and emotions contained in the movie and provide fun to the audience.
A special OST that satisfies the five senses!
Masterpieces reborn as romance of youth in 2022!
The OST of <Sympathy>, reinterpreted with carefully composed songs and modern sensibilities for each scene, represents not only the special sensibility of communication that transcends the era, but also the image of young people who started a clumsy but fresh love, and the level of immersion in the movie is maximized. pull up
First of all, the OST, which flows from the communication scene between the 'dragon' and 'pattern', which are the main axes of the story, was completed after deep contemplation and effort by the production team as it conveys the sensibility that the work seeks to the audience at the beginning of the play. For the first communication scene that started accidentally through an old walkie-talkie, I tried to present a romantic atmosphere of <Sympathy> by composing music with fantasy elements added. In addition, in the scene where the 'dragon' and 'pattern' communicate with each other in their respective rooms, rhythmic melodic music was placed to emphasize the delightful tiki-taka chemistry and sympathy of the two characters transcending the times.
In particular, the <Sympathy> OST adds even more specialness to the participation of artists who are popular with the MZ generation. They reinterpret masterpieces from the 1990s to the 2000s with their own individuality, conveying romance unfolding in different eras. ‘Road to You’ sung by global K-pop boy band N. ', and 'As Always Now' by the complete girl group Vivi-G, etc. As director Seo Eun-young said, “We selected songs that fit the mood of the characters, and arranged them at the moment of excitement, meeting, and conflict on a date,” the OST inserted in the right place in the right place for the characters’ ever-changing emotions and situations conveys the excitement and affection of love. It forms a deep sympathy of the audience towards the characters who are going through.
Filled with OSTs that provide a variety of emotions and messages as the play unfolds, <Sympathy> will remain in the hearts of the audience for a long time as the only youth romance that satisfies the five senses.
