[ Prologue ]
Second First Love (composer Lee Byung-hoon / lyricist Jang Yoo-jung / song sharing)
the moment we first met
i was so scared of you
like an angry person
I kicked the door and came in.
I just wanted to hide
The more we know, the more we are different
I thought you’d hate it
Time passes and
I secretly became comfortable with you
It’s strange, the old me
I was always afraid to leave
With you, beyond the night sky
I think I can go to the moon
I hear a miracle
The sound of the boat beating is urging us
Shake off the past day
Let’s go on a trip alone
The old love that has passed
They all became stars on the ridge
Lean on my shoulder for a day or so
Let’s find your star together
like the wind like the sand
Ride a camel across the golden desert
I’m by your side now
don’t be afraid to go
hold my hand and walk
start a new love

[ Production Highlight ]
<Finding Kim Jong-wook> Filmed in India for the first time in Korea!
The best stage where first love unfolds, India’s ‘Blue City’
Exotic and beautiful scenery spread across the screen
At the end of this year, the romantic comedy <Finding Kim Jong-wook> invites the audience to India. India, which will catch the eyes of the audience with its exotic and beautiful scenery, is the first travel destination for Seo Ji-woo (Im Soo-jung) and the fateful meeting between her and her first love, Kim Jong-wook. In order to create a special memory of first love that cannot be erased from the heart of Im Soo-jung for a long time, the production team went to India for the first time in Korea and filmed on location. The audience will follow the eyes of Im Soo-jung, who went on a backpacking trip in the play, and feel the exotic landscape and culture of India, and there, they will meet and fall in love with their fateful partner, Kim Jong-wook. The impression that director Jang Yoo-jeong felt when visiting India in the past was that “the beautiful India that is covered in thick fog in the morning and is not visible when the fog is lifted is like an image of first love.” Although the filming conditions were poor, the efforts of the production team who filmed in India to capture the unforgettable place of first love on the screen will impress the audience with a fascinating video that has not been seen in existing romantic comedy films.
Q. Where was the filming in India?
The relationship between the female lead, Seo Ji-woo and her first love, Kim Jong-wook, begins in ‘Blue City’ in India. Filming also took place in ‘Blue City’. Although the official name is ‘Jodhpur’, it is widely known as ‘Blue City’ because of the unique scenery that all the walls of the building are painted in blue. In order to capture the beauty and romance of ‘Blue City’, which has not yet been introduced in Korea, the production team had to travel by train for 11 hours to a place 600 km away from Delhi, the capital.
Q. Were there any difficulties while filming in India?
At the time of filming, the temperature in India was 49 degrees. Due to the nature of the culture, the animals roamed freely, so the cleanliness was also not good. Also, the language spoken among Indians was different, so it was almost impossible to communicate with the extras. Since it is not a country that is driven by the system, prior recruitment was also meaningless. When the director looked at the monitor and then looked back, an unbelievable scene was produced in which over a hundred onlookers were watching the monitor together.

Im Soo-jung’s dance and song transforming from stage director to musical heroine

As the main character is a woman who works passionately with love for her job, the appearance of a musical scene was essential. However, director Jang Yoo-jung made a musical instead of filming a ‘musical scene’. Because in order to really show the stage director working behind the scenes in the dark, the fantastic on-stage moments they create had to be perfect too. Since he didn’t want scenes that were only musicals in appearance, director Jang Yoo-jung invited top-notch staff in the musical world to produce a one-set musical.

Q. What are the specific preparations for the musical ‘Last Show’ in the movie?

Not only the staff but also the actors appearing in the musical are professional musical actors, and they were selected through auditions from the 6th to the 7th round.
Q. How did you prepare for Lim’s vocals and choreography?
Im Soo-jung’s performance scene was composed by Jang So-young, choreographed by Lee Ran-young, and voice coach by Park Ka-lin, all of whom are like Kira-seong in the performance world.

Q. What kind of song is ‘Second First Love’?
It is a swing-style song with jazzy brass on top of a ukulele instrument. Originally, the song was composed by music director Lee Byung-hoon as the theme of Han Ki-joon played by Gong Yoo, so it fits well with Gong Yoo’s atmosphere and character. Director Jang Yoo-jung also wrote the lyrics of ‘Second First Love’ for Gong Yoo during a trip to the Himalayas, which left after filming.
Q. How did the song work go?
