Shooting that gives you visual pleasure and witty music that disallows prediction!
Complete the sense of rhythm in the movie that satisfies the five senses!

<Gentleman> added a visual rhythm to the work by maximizing the sense of speed in order to convey the pleasure of the crime entertainment genre. Director Kim Kyung-won said, “I filmed the film so that the audience can feel that the story is progressing with a colorful and interesting composition just by looking at the screen.” As well as having fun through it, I put effort into giving a sense of rhythm so that the audience can easily follow the situation and story of the character. To this end, thorough planning was carried out from the preparation stage of production. Cinematographer Byun Bong-seon, who worked on works such as <Victory>, [Hell], and <The Terror Live>, said, “I put the focus on the rhythm of the entire film. I went through thorough continuity work from the pre-production stage with the idea that I want the audience to enjoy watching it.” In addition, the scenes where you can feel the thrill full of tension are properly placed. One of them is the car overturning scene that leaves a strong impression from the beginning of the play. The car rollover scene was filmed by turning the vehicle 360 degrees with the actor on board. Cinematographer Byun Bong-seon picked it as the most impressive scene, saying, “It was a scene that gave me a lot of strength to make it look realistic after going through numerous tests and taking into account details such as window fragments.” Here, director Kim Kyung-won said, "Using a phantom high-speed camera, we took a high-speed shot of about 2,000 frames" about the scene, raising questions about how the dramatic and highly-completed accident scene will be realized on the screen.

The part that gives the greatest sense of rhythm to <Gentleman> is definitely the music. Director Kim Kyung-won thought about the music that goes well with each scene from the scenario work process, and enhanced the detail by listing the music for a specific scene in advance. In addition to this basic work, the production team made an effort to break away from typicality to complete a witty and cheerful crime entertainment movie. In particular, in the scene of the car overturning, the world famous song Frank Sinatra's My Way was used, and the ironic fun was maximized by adding a calm yet powerful melody and a dramatic scene. Music director Dalparan said, “I refrained from working on music that could be predicted that 'this kind of music will come out in this kind of scene'. He said, “I approached it with a feeling of avoiding the existing standardized things,” he said, “It will give a fresh feeling, such as exciting music in a tense situation.” In addition to this, the different atmospheres of the characters were expressed through music. As music director Dalparan said, “I tried to bring out the feeling of each character with the atmosphere of the music,” the head of the agency, Ji Hyeon-soo, gives off a mysterious but pleasant and bouncy feeling, while the elegant and leisurely villain, Kwon Do-hoon, has a unique character. The noir feeling of 'Kim Hwa-jin', a strong-willed prosecuting attorney, strongly emphasizes the feeling of a character who is exploring and agonizing over solving a case. As such, <Gentleman> will double the charm of the play by adding witty music and shooting that maximizes the pleasure of the fast-paced criminal entertainment genre.

Capture the character's personality!
The creation of a sensuous and stylish space!

Director Kim Kyung-won and the production team put in a lot of effort so that the unique characters could be realized on the screen, and especially the space design. In particular, as the main character who catches the bad guy regardless of whether it is legal or illegal, the overall art concept was set so that it could be real and feel fantasy. As director Kim Kyung-won said, “The colors and overall balance are gorgeous and vintage,” the design was designed in a way that boldly expresses the space itself.

Another key point of the space design was to make use of all the character's characteristics and styles so that they could approach the audience directly without further explanation. The motel where the main character 'Ji Hyun-soo' stayed, the hideout of the secret agency members, the high-end pension of 'Kwon Do-hun', and the examination room of 'Kim Hwa-jin' were put in great effort to bring out their own characteristics. Art director Jo Hwa-seong, who drew attention for his sensuous art, said, "I tried to bring out the color and space feeling to the West to give 'Ji Hyun-soo' a heroic movie character and cheerful feeling," and said he focused on design that could bring out the character of the character. Explained. Here, the hideout of the members of the Secretariat excluded colors and made the actions of the characters more focused, and the high-end pension of 'Kwon Do-hoon' was designed as a space where you can feel the aura to express the person with the highest power. Park Seong-woong, who played 'Kwon Do-hoon', said, "I built a jungle in the pension set, and I still remember it because the character and space matched so well", raising expectations for the carefully completed art. In addition, the space is designed to maximize the character of 'Kim Hwa-jin', a poisonous prosecutor who never lets go once bitten. Art director Hwa-seong Hwa-seong said, “To show that I am a person who is buried in work, I completed the space by repeatedly stacking documents, etc.” The impressive ending scene that decorates the end of the film was created without the help of CG. Director Kim Kyung-won said, “There were many opinions that it would be better not to use CG for the train scene, which is the ending,” and that LED walls were used to realize the scene realistically. LED WALL is a shooting technique that implements the background on LED screens on the wall and ceiling and shoots a person standing in front of it to make it appear as if the person is actually in that space. The production team of <Gentleman>, which completed a more realistic and effective scene through this, will further increase the audience's immersion with a space design where you can feel the breath of the character itself.
