[ PRODUCTION NOTE ]
6 people 6 colors! Unique space design!
Contain the story of various characters!
As the production team said, “I thought it was a film that needed the concept and color of each character,” the production team's delicate efforts to express the charming characters of the movie <Genre Only Romance> melted into each space.
The apartment space where the artist Hyun, who has been in a slump for 7 years, stays is designed to be as complicated as his private life, where work and love are twisted. The first thing that catches your eye is the unorganized and stacked books around Hyun, who is sitting in the workspace. After releasing a bestseller to the world, it projects the dilemma of not publishing a new book for several years, as well as the story of his life, twisted in a variety of ways for 7 years, intertwined with his ex-wife, friend, son, and student. Here, furniture using dark chroma and heavy finishing materials is placed to express the frustration of 'Hyun', who is in an unresolved situation. On the other hand, the rooftop room, which is the space of 'Eugene', an aspiring genius writer, contrasts sharply with 'Hyun''s apartment. As he writes freely, the colors are bright and well-organized, so we took the concept of clean minimalism. Shiny props to match him who came up with brilliant ideas were also scattered throughout.
In the house of 'Hyun''s ex-wife 'Mi-ae', the key was to collect all of her colorful appearances, including work, education, and love. It had to contain the feelings of a woman who is a perfectionist working mom and a woman in love, and the traces of living with her ex-husband Hyun. For this purpose, although it is a house that looks a bit old, she set up stylish fabric furniture to give it a trendy feel, and succeeded in revealing her character living in various relationships as much as 'Hyun'. The production team put a lot of time and effort into the location to give 'Soonmo' an image worthy of the title of 'representative' of a publishing house that remodeled a hanok. The round and soft atmosphere unique to Hanok was judged to be sufficient to express his warm inner feelings, although his face is noir but his heart is melodramatic.
In the house of 'Garden', where she spends most of her time at home, a mysterious, four-dimensional picture resembling her personality is set. The illustration of 'Nana', Korea's first window painter, which is bright like a 'garden' but has a strange atmosphere, was selected. The room of 'The Bible' was completed in a familiar way like a high school student's space that can be easily seen around. As a key point, the violent gale raging by sprinkling raindrops on the window of the room perfectly revealed the heart of puberty. The production team, who built the character's charm through this detailed space design, foretold the birth of a character movie that shines with 100% chemistry, saying, "I think that a good combination can be achieved when the characters show their colors well and blend well with each other." .
Catch the chemistry! Pleasant and delicate angles and music!
It contains the relationships of characters intertwined with an unusual romance!
The colorful chemistry of the characters full of personality, which is the absolute charm point of <Genre Romance>, was completed with the efforts of the director and production team who paid attention to each part, from the angle of the camera to the music. Director Jo Eun-ji, who was in charge of directing, had a deep discussion with the production team to properly portray the twisted and entangled relationship of the six people. Thanks to this, he succeeded in capturing the delightful tiki-taka that permeated every scene and line on camera without missing a single moment.
First of all, the chemistry between various relationships was further enhanced with the sensuous filming of cinematographer Kim Tae-soo, who caught the eye in films such as <Sabaha> and <Miracle>. He emphasized the skillful atmosphere by using simple angles and lighting between the teacher 'Hyun' who started the co-writing and the disciple 'Eugene'. On the other hand, in Lithuania, the film's ending was perfectly completed with the warmest and most beautiful light by using an anamorphic lens by calculating the timing at which the sunset spreads most beautifully. The scenes of 'Mi-ae' and 'Sun-mo', who are secretly dating, mainly used neat frontal two-shots to focus the audience's attention on the sweet chemistry. When conflicts and crises arose on the love front between the two, the contrast effect was strongly applied with the headlights of the car to dramatically express the emotional contrast. 'Garden' and 'Bible', which will bring out the chemistry of their sweet neighbors, added dynamic fun by actively using moving shots to capture their plump relationship. The unpredictable laughter emanating from the energy of the two lively and free characters will enrich the fun of the play.
Music director Lee Dong-jun, who completed the soft and upbeat music of <Gift in Room 7> and <I Can Speak>, joined in. With titles such as 'Makjang' and 'IN THE RAIN' alone, music that evokes situational fun was inserted in the right place, raising the level of immersion to the highest level. In addition, all the music in the work is more meaningful because it contains not only the humorous situation of each character, but also the message that encompasses the entire film. In particular, 'Jinjinjara', a song sung by singer Tae Jinah at the karaoke room that 'Jungwon' sings, raises the attractiveness and understanding of the character with lyrics similar to 'Garden's view of life. In addition, the ending song 'Private Nanbonga', which immediately captivates the ears with its intense sound, is sung directly by the fusion Korean music band 'Singsing Band', which has been loved by innovative vocalist Lee Hee-moon. Afterwards, director Jo Eun-ji actively proposed the 'Private Nanbongga' completed with the voice of 'Thingsing Band' from the time of the script adaptation, and it can be seen that the director's sensuous touch was touched even in one piece of music.
First time in the country! Lithuanian camera!
A city of artists, the Uzpis Republic!
The movie <Genre Romance> was the first Korean film to have a location in Lithuania to recreate the 'Uzumi Republic', a country where there is only one day on April 1 every year. Ryu Seung-ryong said, "It's my first time filming overseas, and I had fun filming it. I think a beautiful and fun movie will be born,” he said, further raising expectations for the work. The artist village 'Uzumi Republic' in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is a space that symbolizes the growth of 'Eugene', who is co-writing with the best-selling author 'Hyun', who has been in a slump for 7 years, and is an indispensable place in the movie. This virtual country, where everything is possible on April 1st, or April Fool's Day, is an ideal space for artists to work freely.
In order to bring the 'Republic of Uzupis' to life on the screen, the production team worked hard, such as filming in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, and forming a one-on-one partner with the local staff. Director Jo Eun-ji, who was in charge of directing, said, “Actually, the team that runs the festival of 'Usofice Republic' has helped a lot, and it seems that a very cool scene was produced.” It adds to the curiosity of how the local scene was contained in it. In particular, the behind-the-scenes story of using props such as passports and flags that are actually used in the 'Uzumi Republic' to realistically embody the unique exotic atmosphere draws more attention. In this way, the work that was put in to beautifully portray the 'Republic of Uzupis' decorated the end of the work in a more meaningful way.
In this way, <Genre Romance>, which transcends language and cultural barriers and captures the beautiful scenery of Lithuania for the first time in Korea, succeeded in raising the level of perfection of the work. Not only is he heavily armed with a variety of cheerful laughs, but he is also expected to completely capture the hearts of the audience by adding a wealth of sights and messages.
