2009, the greatest clash ever!
Big bang with 10 million spectators

Point of view! There was a big plate full of fun to watch. The main characters of the competition are the Vampire riot <Bat>, the mutant action <X-Men Origins: Wolverine>, and the world-famous picture-copying scam <Insadong Scandal>! In April 2009, who will be the final winner of the contest for 10 million viewers? The most exciting show in history with repeated twists and turns has begun. <Insadong Scandal> succeeded in attracting attention as a foreboding of a masterpiece was conveyed with the material of restoration and reproduction of art, which was first planned, and the passionate performances of luxurious actors such as Kim Rae-won, Uhm Jung-hwa, and Im Ha-ryong. However, as the hardcore vampire <Bat>, directed by Park Chan-wook and starring Song Kang-ho, was scheduled to be released on April 30, the fight turned into a melee. There was a sense of weight given the name value. In addition, as the actor of the mutant action <X-Men Origins: Wolverine> came to Korea, the situation is getting bigger. The situation of the times when the darkness of the global Great Depression is weighing down will also be a major factor in the victory. <Insadong Scandal> has a different color from its competitors. 'The picture war scam of cloning engineers copying the world' is a game of colorful and varied fun. The fun of various characters and characters is also evaluated as the core of the fun that competitors cannot provide.

In 2009, a new maestro will compete.
New director Park Hee-gon's premonition of a masterpiece

The consensus that April 30th will be the biggest release in the box office market for the opening week. The spring of 2009 is full of fun to choose from, but there is another point to watch, which is not to be missed: the battle between director Park Chan-wook, master of <Bat>, and new director, Park Hee-gon of <Insadong Scandal>. different names? However, if you look at the faces of the leaders who have led Korean cinema in the 21st century, the fight becomes unpredictable. Dong-Hoon Choi in <Reconstruction of Crime>, Hong-Jin Na in <The Chaser>, Hoon Jang in <A Movie is a Movie> and Hyung-Cheol Kang in <Speeding Scandal>, all of the characters who resuscitated Korean films in recession were new directors. Director Park Chan-wook needs no further explanation. However, the story of rookie director Park Hee-gon begins now. Variety of episodes that transcend genres and new materials of picture restoration and reproduction. And the composition of dozens of characters with different characters. Only 11 scenarios bound into books. While persistently making use of each episode and character, the 99th scenario went through the process of being modified and supplemented by Park Hee-gon. To shoot one scene, he dragged dozens of staff to a winter mountain and airlifted 20 tons of snow. It took 8 months to design the gallery inscription. Only 20,000 props were mobilized. Kim Rae-won confesses, "I respect director Park Hee-gon for writing such a reversal story." Uhm Jung-hwa, who met the director to refuse the role, changed her mind after two or three hours of conversation. However, these behind-the-scenes stories are only the tip of the iceberg. As beneficiaries of the new media environment, do the new directors born in the 70s and 80s, who have grown up with nourishment, have the image DNA that previous generations did not have? If watching a fight is the best thing to watch out for, the fight between a master and a rookie on April 30 seems to be a pretty interesting spectacle.

From a shabby forgery factory to a modern restoration room, perfect!

Restoring and copying art, buying and selling… <Insadong Scandal> will be the first film about art and the fraud surrounding the art trade. Therefore, the space where art and events unfold is the main character more important than any other character. Not only the works drawn by the art team, but also 'Byeokando', 'Ganghwa Screen', 'Woman by the Window', and 'Self-Portrait of Song', which are the center of morale in the movie, were directly requested from artists working in the real world. Director Park Hee-gon and the art team actually created the process through detailed discussions about the technique and style of painting, so the process was not easy either. In addition, a professional space for the sale, reproduction, and restoration surrounding art is also an essential point. It is said that there are only a few detailed materials about the space that director Park Hee-gon has been preparing for three years. In particular, the staff travels around the country, focusing on how to visually differentiate the conflicting spaces such as the restoration room and counterfeit factory/gallery inscription, Insa-dong antique store/Korea Auction, private auction house, and Japan's Kuroda Collection. was actively used. The cost of this set and space work alone was about 500 million won. In particular, in contrast to the space of the minimalist, stylish and cold restoration room, Hojinsa, a forgery factory, completes the interior by filling it so densely that it can create not only the old exterior but also anything, emphasizing the visual difference and adding visual fun. Through the place, the character's personality is emphasized, and the fun of the scam is planned to be enriched.
