According to the announcement of the Supreme Prosecutors' Office, the amount of damage and the number of cases of voice phishing in 2020 amounted to 700 billion won and 39,713 cases, respectively. Among them, the refund rate for the amount of damage was about 48.5%, and half of the victims did not receive relief for the amount of damage. Recently, due to COVID-19, non-face-to-face phishing cases have been on the rise through various methods such as disaster relief funds and loans to small businesses, and voice phishing is taking root more deeply in our lives.

In the early days of the crime, those who simply called and asked for cash are now fully impersonating public authorities and conducting advanced operations using smartphone applications and SNS messengers. As a result, the number of victims is increasing day by day, but it has become more difficult to find the perpetrators who are hiding behind the voices of doubt. <Voice> created a differentiated criminal action based on voice phishing, a crime that has evolved along with the development of technology. In particular, the process in which the victim, Seo-Jun, jumps directly into the world of voice phishing and digs up everything gives a creepy sympathy and exhilarating catharsis. In the background of the world of voice phishing that has never been seen in Korean movies, <Voice> will present unique criminal action.

The reality of massively organized voice phishing
reveal all

Over the past decade, the voice phishing organization's methods have been advanced, and unimaginably elaborate plans are launched to catch suspicious and suspicious victims. <Voice> is an interesting film that delves into the deepest part of the world of voice phishing that has been veiled for so long.

The voice phishing stronghold that Seo-Jun witnesses completely overturns the expectations of the audience, who had previously thought that they would fool their opponents with just a few phones. The existence of a large and densely organized voice phishing organization makes it difficult to see if there is any way we can escape from this crime. They illegally supply personal information suitable for so-called voice phishing crime planning, and those who are close to financial experts complete the realistic script. The emergence of large-scale call centers that snatch victims in an instant using a camouflage application, a camouflaged website, which can be deceived by anyone, explains why voice phishing crimes are on the rise no matter how careful or suspicious we are.

<Voice> shows the audience the secrets of this world by following Seo-jun who infiltrated the call center, the home of voice phishing. Director Kim Seon and Kim Gok, who directed the film, said, “Voice phishing crimes are so complex and extensive that it was impossible to capture them all in a 109-minute film.” He worked tirelessly to capture everything about phishing. In particular, from A to Z of voice phishing, such as the process of planning a voice phishing operation, the appearance of so-called 'voices' who practice it, and the movement of systemized cash withdrawals, every detail from A to Z of voice phishing is revealed in the movie, raising an alarm about the Korean voice phishing crime and giving the audience attention.

Byun Yo-han, Kim Mu-yeol, Kim Hee-won, Park Myung-hoon
100% combination of freshness met in the crime action genre

It is a film that will be a powerful spectacle with fresh crime action created.

Seo-jun, a victim of voice phishing, risks his life for his family and colleagues and infiltrates the stronghold of voice phishing. Actor Byun Yo-han, who threw himself down for the movie, was perfect for the role of Seo-joon, who does nothing to find the voice of lawyer Kim Hyeon-soo, who only took everything from him. Seo-jun had to digest the most action scenes in the play. From the fight with the enemies in a swarm, to the rough chase scene from jumping off the roof of the building and climbing up the elevator, Byun Yo-han surprised everyone by digesting most of the action himself. Actor Kim Mu-yeol took on the role of Kwak Pro, who heralded the birth of a new villain that has never been seen before. Kwak Pro is a difficult character who has to show deep desire, coolness, and sophisticated evil in every line. Through constant thought and research, Kim Moo-yeol has created a new villain outside the typical villain who is attractive while uttering creepy words. Director Kim Seon and Kim Gok are saying that they thought that actor Kim Moo-yeol was really lucky to take on the role of Pro Kwak.

Kim Hee-won, who takes on the role of Kyu-ho Lee, an intelligent crime investigator who wants to root out the roots of voice phishing crimes, seeks advice from real detectives for the role, and if I am a real detective, I am deeply concerned about how to investigate and catch voice phishing crimes. immersed in Kim Hee-won, who had thought about how to get rid of voice phishing from the moment she first read the scenario, completely melted into the role of Lee Kyu-ho, who honestly carries out her mission to sweep the voice phishing organization while touching the victims' feelings of injustice. made it solid. Lastly, Park Myung-hoon, who shows the most distinct personality in Chungmuro, took on the role of Director Cheon, the absolute watcher of the call center. If Pro Kwak is the brain of the voice phishing base, Director Cheon takes on the role of limbs and leads the organization by creating a fearful atmosphere. Park Myung-hoon added his own color to the character of General Manager Chun by setting an ambiguous hairstyle that makes it difficult to know the nationality directly, and applying his characteristic intense eye smoke.

Byun Yo-han said, "Even if we didn't speak, we knew each other's positions accurately. Thanks to that, I was very happy while acting.” He said that the fresh combination of the four characters full of personality and the perfect chemistry of the four actors were excellent. In this way, <Voice> raises expectations that Byun Yo-han, Kim Mu-yeol, Kim Hee-won, and Park Myung-hoon, who newly met on the screen, will reveal their unique charms and fully demonstrate their synergy.

In addition, a thorough preliminary investigation was conducted, including bank officials, the Financial Supervisory Service's voice phishing task force, and thesis.

In the process, directors Kim Seon and Kim Gok and the production crew had difficulties in obtaining specific information about the voice phishing base. “It was difficult because there were no videos or photos of the base. Even if there was, it was filmed secretly, so the picture quality was very poor, or it did not fit the movie because it was after everyone left.” tried Art director Lee Na-gyeom's details were also added. “I first thought of a large shopping center where desire is expressed as consumption, empty. As another twisted desire entered the space, it was conceptually well suited to the fact that it occurred as a crime.” Art director Lee Na-gyeom added details to the 'call center', the home of voice phishing in the movie, adding more vitality.
