Shim Eun-kyung, a representative actress in her 20s, who has solidified her own character through <Sunny> and <Miss Granny>, takes on the role of 'Yeo-wool', who actively works for the innocence of 'Kwon-yu' and plays a brain role in the team. In this work, Shim Eun-kyung, who has portrayed a character outside the typicality, plans to show off a dark charm that she has never seen before by attempting external changes with strong styling such as smokey makeup and hot pants.
In addition, in the game, he is a sniper among white hair, but in reality, the special effects staff 'Demolition', who is full of mistakes, has a strong will to get rid of the leader's name as strong as others, but he creates a comical situation at every moment with his skills, which is somewhat lacking by 2%. Ahn Jae-hong, a blue chip from Chungmuro, who received a lot of love from the public through the movie <The King of Jokgu> and the drama [Reply 1988], took on the role of 'Demolition' and completed a pleasant synergy with Ji Chang-wook and Shim Eun-kyung.

[ About Action ]

An exhilarating experience that transcends the boundaries between game and reality “game battle action”
The large-scale battle scene in the middle of the city that opens the gates of <Fabricated City> brings out the video from the FPS game to reality rather than the monitor screen, delivering vivid and real pleasure. Director Park Gwang-hyeon said, “I thought it would be nice to have an experience as if the audience were participating in a real battle. I wanted to draw it not as a scene of a virtual game, but as a scene of a war in the middle of the city in real life.” As cinematographer Dong-geun Nam said, “Rather than showing a sharp contrast between the game and reality, the film was made in an extension of the world view that games are more realistic and reality is more game-like.” (GoPro) A more realistic feeling is doubled through shooting techniques such as using multiple units for close-up photography. Ji Chang-wook, who plays the role of 'Kwon-yu', also directly digested the descending rappel and 360-degree rotating shooting scene, jumping from the height of the third floor of the building, increasing immersion in the action. The opening action, which delivers a realistic experience as if you are in a game, will overwhelm your eyes with thrilling spectacle that is different from the action scenes of existing Korean movies.

“Eight-lane large-scale car chasing” where scale, sights and humor coexist
The large-scale car chasing on the 8-lane road that appears in the second half of the movie draws attention as an all-time car chasing scene where the wide range of emotions and active sights of the characters who have reached their climax coexist. In addition to drone shooting to take advantage of the dynamic car action, 'Russian Arm', a special shooting equipment that can shoot stably even in fast-moving situations, was mobilized to capture lively car chasing. In particular, the highlight of the car chasing action is the scene in which a light car equipped with a luxury car engine runs on the road, teasingly outrunning numerous vehicles, including truckers and large trucks. “The original concept for Car Chase was Tom and Jerry. A car action created with the intention of director Park Kwang-hyeon, "I wanted to complete a scene that contains episodes of the process of overcoming a crisis situation or bullying a villain in the midst of being chased and pursued, and adding pleasant elements even in the midst of danger and seriousness." The highlight will be a unique attraction and humorous fun of <Fabricated City>.

Paper, grains of rice, even a compact car just before the scrap car!
A seemingly insignificant everyday object is reborn as an original weapon!

<Fabricated City> delivers surprise with creative and new action that has never been seen in any other movie. In particular, the paper arrow action shown in the scene where 'Kwon Yu' confronts 'Maduk-su' and his party in the prison is the first counterattack of 'Kwon-yu' and a moment of awakening to demonstrate the abilities built up in the game in reality. Director Park Kwang-hyeon, who encountered a case of using rolled up paper or cloth as an arrow based on documentaries and materials related to actual overseas prisons, added a cinematic idea and completed it with a unique action that only 'Kwon Yu' can show. In addition, the fight scene with rice grains in the dark using the extraordinary hearing gained from the experience in the punishment room in the prison where a single ray of light does not come in is a creative scene that visualizes the texture of hearing through video. It heralds the birth of a famous scene comparable to the scene of popcorn falling like snow in the previous work <Welcome to Dongmakgol>. Director Park Gwang-hyeon's unique fresh idea, "It was an idea that came after thinking about how the pain inflicted on the main character can come back to his strengths", this scene will deliver a pleasant shock beyond mere spectacle. In addition, the supercar, which appears as the hidden protagonist of the movie's 'recommendation' and the exhilarating counterattack of the members, is a compact car that is about to be scrapped and remodeled by moving the engine of a foreign car.
