[ PRODUCTION NOTE ]

Lightning comparison analysis! 1990 vs 2014
<My Love, My Bride> is a film that director Lim Chan-sang remembers most clearly among Korean films at the time, and Byeon Bong-hyeon, CEO of Film Momentum, loves it the most. As both of them cherished and loved the original, the desire to remake the 2014 version was also very high. The most important part when deciding on the remake was the feelings of Youngmin and Miyoung. The points where the two emotionally collide, such as the loveliness and freshness of the early days of newlyweds, and the sense of separation and conflict that arise as the marriage that each has dreamed of becomes a reality, does not deviate much from the original. In particular, the main scenes that were talked about by the audience at the time of the original release, such as the Jajangmyeon scene, the housewarming scene, and the reconciliation at the hospital, were reborn in the 2014 version and added to the fun. However, the production team also wanted to add to the charm of the 2014 version of <My Love, My Bride>. It is hoped that the audience will more deeply empathize with the situation of these two couples. To this end, we focused on showing the changed view of marriage and the status of men and women in the story or setting according to the current era. Thanks to this, Mi-young, a full-time housewife 24 years ago, worked as a lecturer at an art academy, and Young-min, an artist, became a 9th-grade civil servant, and Young-min's friends with various marriage experiences appeared. Also, in 1990, Young-min, who brought laughter with her clever words and deeds, was reborn as an immature groom disguised as cute, and Mi-young, a lovely bride, was reborn as a mature character like a mother.

More interesting scene #3.

1. Tragedy caused by jealousy_Jjajangmyeon incident
– 1990: Young-min and Mi-young go on a date after a short time. However, the date that should have been fun turns into a nightmare because of Young-min, who is blinded by jealousy when she sees Mi-young having a friendly conversation with a stranger. In the original story, Mi-young sheds tears when she meets her boss, who has left the company, and hears an unexpected death. Young-min, who saw this from afar, misunderstood that he had met an old lover, and eventually, blinded by jealousy, nailed Mi-yeong's head, which is deliciously eating jajangmyeon, into a bowl of jajangmyeon.
– 2014: Young-min meets Mi-young's junior who is much smarter than herself (!) and gets enraged, then pushes Mi-young's face into a bowl of jajangmyeon like the 1990 version. In this scene, Jo Jung-seok, who plays Young-min, shows an upgraded ad-lib of conversion, giving an unexpected laugh.

2. The immature demands of old husbands who have gone _ Sudden housewarming
– 1990: Young-min invites co-workers/friends to her house with excitement. Mi-young is angry and embarrassed at Young-min's sudden request, but she perseveres and cooks to save her husband's energy. The ignorant customers laugh and talk loudly and touch Mi-young's heart, while Young-min looks at Mi-young's eyes. Besides, Mi-young feels inferior to Miss Choi, a successful career woman. At the moment of trying to flatten the nose of the opponent with his singing skills, he only gets shame because of the disgraceful deviation. In this scene, the late Choi Jin-sil sang Hye Eun-i's 'You Won't Know'.
– 2014: The newly remade version of the housewarming scene unfolds the same as the 1990 version. Mi-young feels strangely jealous of Young-min's friend Seung-hee. Also, in this work, you can enjoy Taeyeon's 'What if' sung by Shin Min-ah.

– 1990: <My Love, My Bride> begins on a bench in a park in the autumn when the leaves are beautifully colored. Young-min tells the audience that he will soon propose to the woman he loves. However, Mi-young, who arrives later, assumes that she will say goodbye to her because of Young-min's serious voice in the receiver, and answers bluntly before she even listens to Young-min. And even before Young-min can say anything important, she already says her conclusion and disappears crying.
– 2014: Mi-young, who rushes to her conclusion without listening to Young-min, is the same as the original. However, Young-min does not speak to the audience before the proposal, but rather chats with friends and asks for advice. And, most importantly, the background. Unlike the original, which was in the fall, the proposal in 2014 is made in the spring when the cherry blossoms are blooming. Wiping tears through the falling cherry blossom petals, the couple exchanging rings will add to the lovely yet sweet charm of the newlyweds.

The daily life of newlyweds
Create a cute newlywed house!

The newlywed house in the movie <My Love, My Bride> was a living space for the main characters Young-min and Mi-young and a representative space to capture the sweet life of the newlyweds who were decorating 'My House' for the first time. It had to be a place to come out. In particular, as director Lee Myung-se completed a unique mise-en-scène by maximizing the aesthetics of set art through the newlyweds in the original <My Love, My Bride>, the production team had no choice but to put more effort into making the set for the newlyweds. In expressing the newlyweds of <My Love, My Bride> in 2014, the part that director Lim Chan-sang had in mind the most was the 'modernization of the classics'. Art director Shin Jeom-hee and director Lim Chan-sang, who were in charge of the entire set and props, wanted the first space of the newlyweds to exude a warm and human atmosphere like 'Notting Hill' in the movie 'Notting Hill'. To this end, considering the occupations of ordinary civil servants and art academy teachers and the local sentiment of Samcheong-dong, where the newlywed house is located in the play, a nest was prepared in an apartment house where they had to live 'with' neighbors, and the exterior and interior of the newlywed house were decorated. . Art director Shin Jeom-hee said, "Although director Lee Myung-se's original newlywed house is an ordinary newlyweds' kitchen, the walls were painted orange to highlight the artistic side to the extreme. As an art director, as an expression of homage and respect for the original work, I used orange blinds on the window of the living room, which is the main space.” Another thing to pay attention to is the color of the interior of the newlywed house. In the early stages of marriage, colorful props are used to represent the fresh and lovely relationship between the two, but as the conflict deepens, colorful props are removed to show a section of married life that becomes commonplace.

Full of excitement, excitement, and loveliness
A day in spring in April, a proposal camera!

The most decisive scene in which the movie begins, the proposal. Due to the wishes of the production team who wanted to show the most visual perfection, this scene was scheduled to be filmed at the time the cherry blossoms were flying, but the weather forecast that the cherry blossoms bloomed about a week earlier than usual made the production team all mentally ill. In addition, as it was predicted that it would rain on the scheduled date for filming, it was expected that the shooting of the proposal, which should be the most beautiful, was difficult, so the production team arranged the shooting schedule with this proposal scene as the top priority. The actors as well as the production crew all adjusted their schedules in early April. However, due to the change of schedule, the original location became difficult. In order to find the most beautiful place, the production team sold their products, and as a result of inquiring here and there, Hongneung Arboretum located in Dongdaemun-gu was hired. The day before filming, the crew was more nervous than ever, because they had no choice but to prepare in a hurry. However, from the morning, everyone was relieved by the clear sky, and the moderately blowing wind made cherry blossom petals fluttering and fluttering, creating a fantastic visual. The proposal scene, which added the actors' acting and the staff's passion, was born as a masterpiece that satisfies not only the director Lim Chan-sang, but also the actors and staff.

The firework point that completes the atmosphere of the movie!
'My Love, My Bride' sung by Jo Jung-seok ♥ Shin Min-ah

There is another reason to keep your eyes and ears open until the end credits of the movie <My Love, My Bride> go up. It is the duet song 'My Love, My Bride' sung by Jo Jung-seok and Shin Min-ah to give the audience the pleasure of listening. The production team has been preparing the OST for the two main characters to sing together from the planning stage of the movie. Jo Jung-suk, the hero of musicals [Hedwig], [Spring Awakening], and [Blood Brothers], and Shin Min-ah, who had experience in releasing project albums with the band Love Holix in 2009, were already proven, so the process was easy. After several works, music director Kim Jun-seong completed a medium-tempo song with an addictive melody that anyone can easily hum. The most noteworthy thing about 'My Love, My Bride', which is composed of a cheerful melody and the lively voices of Jo Jung-suk and Shin Min-ah, is the lyrics that convey the fantasy and reality of marriage. “You became a witch from a beauty. I only scratch a rip off”, “You became the truth from a handsome man. Lifetime lyrics such as “I only look for it when I eat” and “Why is it so important to squeeze the toothpaste at the end” are reminiscent of conversations between real couples. To this, narration made up of lines from the movie, such as “Whether I am married or adopted” and “The person who will say I was happy in the future,” adds to the fun. The music video for 'My Love, My Bride' revealed not only scenes from the movie, but also the recording site of Jo Jung-suk and Shin Min-ah, who have perfect chemistry. Like this, 'My Love, My Bride', created through the collaboration of the production team and actors, will make the audience's footsteps lighter and more cheerful as they leave the theater after watching.
