[ Production Note ]

'Completely different from women these days' fatal charm!
The birth of the unprecedented character 'Audori'!

Shim Eun-kyung, who played a fresh high school girl in her 80s in <Sunny> and Nine in the era of Gwanghae-gun of Joseon who was swirling in <Gwanghae>, literally 'possessed' in each work, is an unheard-of as an abusive, seventy-year-old grandmother who returned to her 20s this time. An extraordinary effort was made to become the character 'Audori' itself. First, Shim Eun-kyung attempted an external transformation. After showing off a wide-brimmed fashion wearing a wig with wavy hair, which is the symbol of a grandmother, he digested the 'Audrey Hepburn' style, which 'Malsoon' had been longing for since his youth, in his own unique way, such as floral fashion and polka dots scarf. I plan to please the eyes of the audience with a retro style of 2014 that no one can imitate. Second, before starting filming in earnest, Shim Eun-kyung volunteered for a Jeolla-do dialect class in order to embody the old-fashioned dialect. In particular, it is said that director Hwang Dong-hyuk was the first contributor to learning the intonation naturally by sharing conversations and text messages with Shim Eun-kyung on set. Even on days when there was no filming, Shim Eun-kyung volunteered for the shadow of Na Moon-hee, who plays the role of 'Mal-soon', and tried not only to imitate every move, but also to literally absorb all of her. As a result, it is said that all the staff at the site were surprised and received generous praise for their speech and intonation similar to the word 'words'.

Lastly, Shim Eun-kyung, who had to dance and sing for the character 'Dori', who joined as the vocalist of 'Bangjiha Band', learned her senses through steady vocal and choreography training before filming. She said, "All of the scenes 'Dori' sings are all of her true feelings, so I sincerely wanted to convey it to the audience, so I suggested that I do it without a double." They performed a memorable song before prayer in an attractive way. Music director Mog praised, "The passion for music was great. I wanted to explain the musical background of the era when the song was released, and I wanted it to be done by making use of that feeling.

"From the two-person role to dancing and singing, <Suspicious Woman> was a work where every moment was a challenge. It is a work that proudly meets the audience as a 20-year-old adult rather than a child, so it has a special meaning and confidence. Shim Eun-kyung, who said, "It's a work I won't regret." Shim Eun-kyung's fatal charm can be seen on the screen at the end of January.

Newly reinterpreted classic classic songs [Go to Naseong] and [White Butterfly] and [Rainwater],
A memorable song parade that will shake all generations!

From Blondie's 'Maria' (Beauty is Painful), Bonnie M's 'SUNNY' to the exhibition's 'Study of Memory' (Introduction to Architecture), the inserted songs naturally blended into the film have provided more special pleasure to the audience. Following the genealogy of these works, <Miss Granny> is expected to delight the eyes and ears of the audience by reinterpreting the songs of the 1980s and 1990s. First, 'Go to Naseong', sung by the Sesam Trio in 1978, was a national hit song with a bright and cheerful rhythm and was loved by the public for a long time. 'Doo-ri', who joined the band in the middle of the play, gradually gained popularity as he sang his 18th song to the band's upbeat rhythm. As the music director Mog said, "I arranged it like today's music so that it almost doesn't feel like an old song," it will shake the audience with a representative insert song that encompasses all generations, from middle-aged to young people who know the original song.

'White Butterfly' sung by Kim Jeong-ho in 1988 and 'Rainwater' sung by Chae Eun-ok in 1991 are calm ballad songs that contrast with 'Mask to Naseong'. The story of 'Mal-soon' represents many lives and evokes emotional sympathy. Director Hwang Dong-hyuk said, "There were many songs that were nominated for various nominations, but I especially listened to the lyrics. Living for a long time, we parted with someone or just broke up. It is a harmonious song,” he said, explaining the reason for the selection. On the other hand, in addition to the famous songs inserted in the right place, there are hidden cards. This is the main title song called 'One More Time', which 'Duri' sang in the final ending scene in the play. Music director Mog said, "I had a lot of trouble with the finale song. It was exciting and hopeful, and I created it based on music that felt like magic or magic would come true." He added that he hopes the audience will once again remember the moment they want to go back together.

The memorabilia in <Miss Granny>, which was created by a combination of music director Mog and director Hwang Dong-hyuk, who swept the Blue Dragon Film Awards and Grand Bell Awards, once again following <The Crucible>, conveys a universal sentiment that encompasses all generations of audiences from teens to 70s. It will double the emotion of the movie.

Director Hwang Dong-hyeok reveals a godsend in casting!
Director Hwang Dong-hyeok, who has put the representative handsome actors of Chungmuro, including Daniel Henney of <My Father> and Gong Yoo of <The Crucible>, into the ranks of actors at once. First, it is said that director Hwang Dong-hyuk did not leave any other room for the casting of Na Moon-hee for the role of 'Mal-soon'. "I've been watching your work for a long time, and he was a unique existence with no other choice. Fortunately, he enjoyed reading the scenario and said he would gladly do it," he said. Shim Eun-kyung, who plays 'Doo-ri', also said, "It is unquestionably the best among actors of my age in acting. I was confident that I could do well in both comedy and drama because I did an excellent job in <Sunny> and <Gwanghae>. I thought that there was only Shim Eun-kyung as an actor who could digest it,” he said, revealing that it was a firm first-choice casting. Another 'God's move' is Park In-hwan as 'Park'. "He had a mask and tone that suited the role of 'Park'. Thanks to the teacher during filming, the character was expressed in a very fun and rich way," he expressed satisfaction. Kim Seul-gi, who plays 'Hana', had a meeting before the main role was decided. "He was a friend who had a lot of dreams about acting. He did a good job of acting in the drama. (Laughs) Also, he had enough singing skills to be a singer, so the performance scene became richer." Regarding Hwang Jung-min, who plays 'Aeja', he expressed his gratitude, saying, "He gave a lively performance down to the details. In the early days when he had to be sick, he actually came to the scene without sleeping. He was an actor who improved the quality of the whole movie with a little effort." .

Director Hwang Dong-hyuk's 'A Divine Move' shined even more in the reverse casting. In particular, Sung Dong-il, who plays the role of 'Hyun-cheol', is the protagonist of a reversal casting that is 180 degrees different from the existing image. "Usually, when it comes to Sung Dong-il, I expect something comical, but on the contrary, I saw a very sad feeling. I thought that people who can bring out comics have the same deep and deep emotions. You will be surprised when you see the movie." Regarding Lee Jin-wook, who plays 'Seung-woo', he said, "I wanted to add a little more color to a handsome and typical figure. To convince anyone that a good-looking friend would fall for Doo-ri, the image of a 'perfect man' that comes to mind when I think of Lee Jin-wook. Instead, I ordered a character that smells a little more human, and he handled it well.” Kim Hyun-sook, who plays 'Na-young', also said, "I wanted to have a reason for existence rather than a character who came out and ended up laughing. Lastly, Jinyoung for the role of 'Underground' is a case that was decided through a large-scale audition. “There were a lot of people who wanted to play that role, but basically, I showed a good performance at the audition. It was my first movie, but as time went on, I naturally melted into the scene and melted into the role, and my acting skills improved by leaps and bounds.”

In this way, from the optimal image casting to the reversal casting that overturns the existing image, the 9-person 9-color variety combination perfectly melted into the character will deliver the true taste of ensemble acting to the audience.
