Why pay attention to <Hyung> at this moment!
The movie <Brother> has become one of the most anticipated films in the second half of the year, generating an all-time high response online for every content released after the release date is confirmed. The reason why <Hyung> was able to receive so much attention is highlighted.
First of all, the movie <Brother> boasts a unique bro chemistry with excellent casting of Jo Jung-seok and Do Kyung-soo. Through posters and trailers released in advance, the two actors Jo Jung-seok and Do Kyung-soo's similar appearance and acting breathing were enough to raise expectations.

[ PRODUCTION NOTE ]
The character and the audience can feel and breathe at the same time.
A real brother's space that becomes a solid background color!
The movie <Brother> projected the process from conflict to reconciliation between the brothers Du-shik and Doo-young in various spaces. The backgrounds are 'home', which is the main stage for unwanted cohabitation, 'bathroom' where brothers gradually get closer, and 'club', which boasts the charm of perfect brothers.
The most important space is the brother's house. In particular, art director Kim Jong-woo, who said he wanted to project a warm family love through the house, meticulously placed the traces of his parents, who were always by the side of the brother, throughout the house, although absent in the film. The brothers' house was largely divided into a living room, a kitchen, a yard, and each room, and the main background of the living room and kitchen is mainly projected with the brothers' father and mother, respectively. The living room is a space where the father recorded the growth of the brothers and silently supported them. Antique mise-en-scène was used from the basic atmosphere to Dooyoung's trophy display case, furniture arrangement, and decorations. Meanwhile, no matter how much they hate each other, the kitchen, a space that reveals that they are 'family members' between eating together, that is, a 'family', symbolizes intimacy, life-like color and pattern accessories, and furniture arrangement, depicting delicate touches and emotions.
Doo-young's room is drawn darkly in contact with the figure lying on his back with a sense of loss, and Doo-sik's room does not function as an overall space for the film, which paradoxically provides a hint to guess the story of Doo-sik, who did not have a settlement. Two brothers The film effectively expresses the restoration of family values and relationships through the space of home, by mainly arranging scenes where the children collide in the living room and kitchen, and in the yard where the persimmon trees of childhood memories stand tall, rather than in their own rooms.
The second space is the bathroom where the brothers gradually get closer. The bathhouse, where two brothers shared their misunderstandings and feelings for each other, and shared memories of their childhood, gave them an opportunity to reconnect, and is also a typical place for men to strengthen their friendship. The bathhouse of the movie <Hyung> was filled with mise-en-scène that reinforces the natural feeling and realism of the situation without adding an artificial artistic touch to take advantage of this typicality. functioned as
The third is a club where the charms of two brothers who look alike are radiated. The club scene, the scene where the mood of the movie changes, was carefully designed to portray Doo-sik's character as it is the background where the skillful Doo-sik leads the messy Doo-young. While maintaining the overall dark atmosphere, instead of excessive club lighting, a small lamp was installed on the table to delicately embody the lines that do not stand out in the background as the two brothers create a story.
These typical, delicate and warmly arranged spaces subtly support the brothers and reinforce the sense of reality of the story of cohabitation.
The producers who led the box office in Korea reveal themselves!
Chungmuro's classic scenario!
Reality Living Characters!
From delicate emotional lines to sympathetic messages
One of the best works not to be missed!
From a scenario full of laughter and emotion, actors who added a three-dimensional effect to the story with rich acting, and a pleasant and warm message, Korea's best production crew confidently reveals the reason why they joined <Brother>.
First of all, the first charm of the movie that they all agreed upon was the screenplay. <The Gift of Room No. 7> The brotherhood of <Brother>, which was created after much deliberation by the writer Yoo Young-ah, started from the artist's experience. Writer Yoo Young-ah explained that growing up with older brothers who have a lot of age difference was the trigger for writing <Brother> and the background to create a vivid story.
Director Kwon Soo-kyung, the head of <Brother>, said, “When I first received the script, I read it all at once. It was so fun and I was touched a lot, so I decided that I really wanted to direct it.” Music director Kim Tae-seong said that it was a “scenario where the affection of the two brothers was well felt” and art director Kim Jong-woo said that it was “a unique, deep and warm story that was read without any blockage” as the charm of the scenario that made them choose <Brother>. .
Writer Yoo Young-ah's screenplay, which fascinated all the staff, was realized on the screen as a much more realistic story, breathing in the breath of popular actors. Writer Yoo Young-ah praised and attributed the perfection to the actors, saying, "The movie has become much more pleasant and serious thanks to Jo Jung-seok's delicious ad-lib and Do Kyung-soo's deep eyes and voice." The production team praised Jo Jung-seok's concentration and Do Kyung-soo's agility, and in particular, Kim Tae-seong, the music director, shared the behind-the-scenes story of the ending song that the two actors recorded together. It was a pleasant recording that was done very well by recognizing it,” he said, revealing that the actors put a lot of effort into the music. It was also added that they were actors who always worked hard on set and made people around them happy.
The third charm of the film, chosen by the production crew, is the good message that a good script meets good actors. They emphasized that the movie <Brother> is the only warm comedy that will overcome the cold season and the cold wind, and said they hope that the audience will feel the love and meaning of family. Director Kwon Soo-kyung said, "Everything on the set was good. A good movie was made like that, and through <Hyung>, it would be good for the audience to remember the preciousness of the people closest to them. added <Hyung>, which fascinated the best production crew in Korea, is scheduled to deliver its warm charm to the audience at the theater in November.
The story of brothers deepened by music
The story behind the ending song and the birth of the OST
The element that deepened the aftertaste of the movie <Brother> is by far the music. From the carefully arranged OST's directing intentions to the story behind the recording of the ending song [Don't Worry My Love] sung by two actors Jo Jung-seok and Do Kyung-soo, music director Kim Tae-seong and actors directly revealed.
<Hyung>'s music faithfully followed the situation of the two brothers, balancing temperance and amplification. Music director Kim Tae-seong, who explained that the concept of music was to get the audience to focus on the actors' performances, added the expression, "Until the middle of the film, music exists like air between brothers." Different concepts of music were used depending on the character's personality. In the case of 'Doo-sik', played by Jo Jung-seok, he mainly uses acoustic instruments to express a somewhat protruding and raw music, and the music used in Do Kyung-soo's 'Doo-yeong' is relatively calm, strengthening the contrast between the brothers. did. This great musical contrast is being tuned into a light and bright tone as the brothers grow closer together.
The music that gently illuminates the brothers “drives” the atmosphere of the film in the 30th minute of the second half, to borrow the expression of music director Kim Tae-seong. He explained that he restrained himself from the first half of the second half to concentrate on the second half, and said that most of the music in the second half was recorded in the United States, and that it was the result of working with a local orchestra and famous foreign engineers. With the participation of a large orchestra and excellent performers, it conveyed the intention and wish that the work was done so that the audience could fully enjoy the events of the second half and fully feel the emotional exchange of the brothers.
The words of the younger brother Doo-young to his older brother Doo-sik, the ending song [Don't Worry] is the highlight of the delicately crafted <Brother> OST. Music director Kim Tae-seong said that the ending song was selected with the idea of director Kwon Soo-kyung after a long deliberation.
The actors also revealed a special ending song episode. Do Kyungsoo said, "At the end of the day, I thought about how great synergy would be if my voice and hyung were included. Jeongseok hyung is also very good at singing, so I always thought that it would be good to sing together." Jo Jung-seok explained the charm of the ending song, saying, "Kyung-soo really sang as Doo-young, and I really sang as Doo-sik. It was an experience that cannot be expressed in words."
The OST of <Brother>, who silently supports the two brothers, and the ending song [Don't Worry], completed with the voices of the two actors, will convey a calm and long lasting impression in the hearts of the audience.
