[ Production Note ]
A hot place for young people!
100% all-location shooting site!
Like a movie about the romance between men and women these days, <Today's Romance> was filmed on 100% all-location locations such as Hongdae, Gyeongnidan-gil, Itaewon, and Garosu-gil. The production team, who chose the shooting location based on the place where lovers often visit, found a place that best expresses the appearance of a place only when a person is captured with a camera.
From the cafe street in Seogyo-dong, where 'Junsu' and 'Hyun-woo' go on a date, to the Hongdae mural street where the two are on their way home, the Mapo Bridge observatory where 'Junsu' ties Hyeonu's shoelaces, 'Hyeonu' and ' "Today's Romance", such as "Hyo-bong" walking along the Gyeongridan-gil while having a conversation, captures the liveliness of the undecorated streets and the freshness of young men and women. Director Park Jin-pyo said, "I chose a place where I could go when I saw a movie and thought, 'I want to go too', that is, a place that started from the movie but exists, so it can also be a place of memories for the audience." Explain why you chose the location.
However, filming in such a hot place was accompanied by unexpected difficulties. The pub 'Hongdae Tang', a hideout for 'Junsu' and 'Hyun-woo' in the play, could not be filmed until the owner of the building did not give an answer about whether or not it was filmed until a week before filming, and it burned the hearts of the production team. The actual cafes, exhibition halls, and pubs they are looking for have been constantly protested by customers who were unable to use them due to filming.
<Today's Romance> was filmed after hard work by persuading the shops to close and asking the owner to open the shop that was closed. Uncontrollable weather such as rain showers and strong winds also added a part. Director Park Jin-pyo said about the filming site, "It's a movie about dating and love these days. There were too many people at each filming location and it was hard because of the weather, but I wanted to capture the place in which young men and women meet while having a thumbs up and dating rather than decorating the set realistically,” he said. <Today's Romance> is expected to draw more sympathy from young people by capturing the image of today's handsome men and women wandering in front of love and love.

First, in order to express real characters, real emotions, and real situations, Lee Seung-gi and Moon Chae-won of <Today's Romance> directly digested all the scenes without a double. Moon Chae-won, the goddess of the weather in the play, shows a unique weather forecast by blowing up strong winds and climbing high hills depending on the weather. Unlike the character in the play, who jumps happily with a bright smile, Moon Chae-won did not easily jump out of fear and fear during the actual filming. According to the expert saying that if you can't bungee jump within 2-3 minutes, you can't jump forever, so the production team postponed the filming and prepared a double. However, Moon Chae-won, who succeeded in bungee jumping, dispelling everyone's concerns at once, transformed into 'Hyun-woo' in an instant as a proficient professional actor, and created a great bungee jumping weather forecast scene with pleasant and pleasant emotional acting.
On the other hand, for Lee Seung-gi, the gyro-drop ride was a big task. Like Junsu in the play, he actually had a phobia of heights. Unable to get on the gyrodrop due to fear, he decided to directly hit the key scene of the movie and this scene that shows the change of character, and started filming without choosing a double. Seunggi Lee completed the gyro drop scene over a total of 3 days. Each time the take was repeated, he stayed in the air for about 15 minutes at a height of 40 meters above the ground, and after filming on the first day, he showed a mental limit, showing symptoms of exhaustion. The next day, filming started again amidst all the staff's concerns, and Lee Seung-gi actively came up with ideas and performed various emotional performances like a professional 10-year-old actor even in extreme horror situations, completing a realistic scene containing Junsu's sincerity.
Finally, the acting direction of director Park Jin-pyo, who made the scene pleasant and aroused a topic. Director Park Jin-pyo, who expressed the expressions that elevate the actors' emotions a little more at 10 won, but only 20 won, said, "I wrote that expression to make it easy for actors to understand, and there is also an aspect that I used to give them a sense of relaxation." I explained why I decided to use the . In response, Moon Chae-won responded to director Park Jin-pyo's direction, saying, "It is not easy to express the level of emotion in detail, but it was good to know how much more the director asked for more emotion by using the specific expressions of 10 won and 20 won." Lee Seung-gi also said, "I think it's a good direction that doesn't kill the actor's spirit. I was embarrassed when I first heard it, but I quickly got used to it, and I was able to play comfortably by making small changes in the direction the director requested.”
Lee Seung-gi, who overcame real fear of heights through the shooting of 37 gyrodrops, Moon Chae-won, who sublimated fear into acting, and director Park Jin-pyo who spread the Happy Virus with sensible direction. The fighting spirit of the two actors who do not spare themselves at the filming site, which was full of pleasant energy, enhances the authenticity of the characters and deeply empathizes with the feelings of thumb, love, and love that the two characters create.
