What is Myeongnyang Battle?
It is a naval battle during the Jeongyujaeran period, which was re-encroached by the Japanese after the Japanese Invasion, and refers to the battle in which Admiral Yi Sun-sin defeated 330 Japanese ships in Myeongnyang on September 16, 1597 (30th year of King Seonjo) with only 12 ships. Before the Battle of Myeongnyang, Joseon had lost its naval power due to the defeat of Won Gyun, who was appointed Commander of the Three Islands instead of Admiral Yi Sun-sin, who had been sacked. However, with the remaining 12 ships, Admiral Yi Sun-sin, who returned from being framed, defeated the Japanese and restored the maritime power of Joseon by using the geographical environment and sophisticated tactics. The Battle of Myeongnyang was one of Admiral Yi Sun-sin's representative battles, which he won without a turtle ship. The Battle of Myeongnyang was recorded as a great war that changed the history of Joseon to the extent that there is an opinion that if it was defeated at Myeongnyang, the Japanese colony could have been advanced by 300 years.

A breathtaking battle of only 8 hours!
A combination of extensive data research, thorough historical research and imagination!
In the middle of the war 417 years ago, the vivid scene is reproduced!

Director Kim Han-min, who opened a new chapter in Korean historical drama action by adding new characters, stories, and stylish actions based on history through <The Last Weapon: Bow>. In filming 'The Battle of Myeongnyang', which is regarded as the greatest war following the Byeongja Horan of <The Last Weapon: Bow>, a thorough investigation and understanding of historical facts was carried out to create a more realistic drama and spectacle of war. Director Kim Han-min, who wanted to portray Yi Sun-shin as a three-dimensional character with inner and psychology, rather than the image of a fantasy hero drawn in existing movies or dramas, tried to understand the feelings and emotions of the general recorded in the 'Nanjung Diary'. I went through the process of comparing and interpreting the complete translations. In addition, the historical data and interpretations of various experts in the drawing of the Battle of Myeongnyang, for which there are no accurate data and different military records in historical sources such as the cursive script of the Nanjung Ilgi, Yichungmugongjeonseo, and the Annals of King Seonjo, as well as the current flow of Myeongnyang and that time The reality of war was built through extensive research that crosses various fields such as weather and terrain. Through this, director Kim Han-min, based on historical facts and considering the circumstances at the time, adds cinematic imagination and fun, which is highly probable, to create a grand war with characters, dramas, and tension that goes beyond predictions, rather than a war as a mere spectacle. completed.

<Myeongryang> puts a lot of effort into reality, down to every detail such as costumes, art, and props. In order to vividly describe the Joseon Panokseon, which is the center of the war, various historical materials and actually restored ships were investigated and measured to build the first Korean Panokseon with a full-size outer diameter and details, and a total of 30m long Panokseon was built. Ahn Taek-seon of the Japanese army, who did not do this, built the most approximate ship that would have existed at that time through investigations through major museums such as the Nagoya Museum and analysis of historical materials and comparative resources during the Imjin War. It is the first attempt to produce Ahn Taek-seon in real size, not only in Korea, but also in Japan. Admiral Yi Sun-sin's armor, which differs in the form of armor for each material, was newly created based on the iron armor materials of 'Seoae Yoo Seong-ryong', who selected Admiral Yi Sun-sin as the Jeolla leftist in order to approach maximum reality. Inspired by the setting as a mercenary from pirates, it was designed by borrowing the armor of 'Takeda Shingen', who is called the Japanese god of war. <Myeongnyang>, which contains a new story and creative spectacle that combines historical reality and cinematic imagination, will give you a special experience as if you were together in the middle of the war that changed the history of Joseon 417 years ago.

Choi Min-sik, an actor representing the Korean film industry!
Returning to Korea's representative hero, Admiral Yi Sun-sin!

Korea's best actor, Min-sik Choi, who does not require any formality, has returned as the hero of Korea, Admiral Yi Sun-sin. In order to play a great man whom he usually admires, Choi Min-sik repeatedly researched and intensely worried about the character, thereby portraying Admiral Yi Sun-sin, who lives and breathes in a wide range of emotions such as hope and despair, courage and fear, leadership and loneliness, and a bitter human beauty. was born While the previous works mainly dealt with the bravery and charisma of Admiral Yi Sun-sin, Choi Min-sik shows a new character that has never been seen before, highlighting the human side of Admiral Yi Sun-sin, who hides fear and loneliness behind the strong longevity in the chaotic war. In particular, before filming began in earnest, actor Choi Min-sik suggested a wash-kim-gut as a sign of courtesy and respect for the great hero Admiral Yi Sun-sin, and showed a strong attachment and awe for the character to the point that he shed tears at the scene.

In order to perfectly express Yi Sun-sin as a general who leads the 'Battle of Myeongryang', Min-sik Choi personally digested all the intense battle scenes in the severe cold of midwinter and the heatwave of midsummer for about 6 months, demonstrating his tireless fighting spirit. In particular, Choi Min-sik, who had to wear heavy armor weighing about 20 kg, which was not easy to lift at once, and had to digest the action, led the filming site of <Myeongryang> with extraordinary passion and strong will that overcame physical limitations. Choi Min-sik, who said, "I did my best with a sense of responsibility and mission different from before for playing the role of Admiral Yi Sun-sin, whom all Koreans respect," Choi Min-sik, who expressed his unusual impression, deeply portrayed the inner side of Admiral Yi Sun-sin with thick acting, of course. It will overwhelm the screen with a fighting spirit that transcends physical limits.

“Since the long-lived one is not dead, how can he lie down?”

Ryu Seung-ryong, a popular actor who rose to 10 million in two consecutive bats with <Gwanghae, the Man Who Became King> and <The Gift of Room 7>, plays the role of 'Gurujima', a mercenary general of the Japanese army who was put in the right place to eliminate Yi Sun-sin. He leads the play with a strong charisma and presence that surpasses the longevity 'Jusinta'.

The first naval battle drama in Korean film history
Spectacular sights, creating an overwhelming scale!

Myeongnyang, the first naval battle drama in Korean film history, is a six-month long voyage between Gwangyang and Wando in order to revive the grandeur of the great war between Korea and Japan, which faced hundreds of Japanese ships and thousands of Japanese soldiers with only 12 ships. Various attempts and challenges were made. In Gwangyang, Jeolla Province, where the movement of the ship was most important due to the nature of the war called naval battle, <Myeongnyang> produced an actual set of naval battles on the sea and a large set using a 'gimbal' that can be mounted and filmed on land. We were able to capture a spectacle that matches every scene. In the scene where the Joseon and Japanese forces had to come in direct contact with the Japanese army or make use of the reality on the sea during the Imjin War, four huge ships were built and operated on the sea, including the Panokseon, the ship of the Joseon naval forces, the Japanese battleship Sekibune, and the Antaekseon, which commanded them. By shooting in the real sea, vivid sights were captured. Meanwhile, for more dynamic scenes such as the rough sea movement and the impact of ships and ships, the same four ships to be mounted on the gimbal were separately produced, and a total of eight ships were created to overcome the limitations of reality that CG could not create. In particular, in order to create a gimbal capable of free movement of an extra-large size that has never been used in existing movies, the production team invested 4 months of time and passion to design and produce drawings based on data collected from foreign countries. It is a device that can freely move left, right, up and down, and rotates 360 degrees, creating a dynamic action scene of the naval battle in <Myeongryang>.

The battle scene is a battle scene between the Joseon Panokseon, which is in the form of a large warship that can mount cannons of various sizes, including the large artillery Cheonjapo, as well as the Ji, Hyeon, Hwang, and the Victorious Fist, and the Japanese army boasting the splendor of red flags and gold decorations. The contrasting images of Korea and Japan make it a grand spectacle in itself. In addition, the explosion scene was completed using a special equipment 'Water Canon' to realize the effect of exploding gunpowder on the water, a battle scene in which a Korean cannon and a Japanese rifle collide, and a hand-to-hand battle where each other's swords and swords clash on a ship. <Myeongryang>, in which various actions and battles unfold without a break, will captivate the audience with a sense of tension and overwhelming immersion.

The key to <Myeongnyang> was how perfectly it embodies the historical situation of Joseon in 1597 and the battle at the time when Joseon and the Japanese army were in sharp confrontation. continued sloppy work. Art director Chang Chun-seop, who remodeled the traditional bow in <The Last Weapon Bow> and added reality to the film, spared no effort to perfectly reproduce the Battle of Myeongnyang, including a super-large naval battle set and a ship that reflects the historical evidence of the times.

I want you to see Yi Sun-sin not as a hero, but as a human being who had to live in an era of terrible war.
– <The Ultimate Weapon> <The Mister> Martial Arts Director Hong Eui-jeong

Create something out of nothing! From extra-large sets, gimbals, and various cannons
Whereas most existing gimbals can only move up and down or left and right, Myeongryang produced the first gimbal that can rotate 360 degrees to express the texture of the whirling sea. The production team found the special effects team of the <Pirates of the Caribbean> series and studied the structure and operation of the existing gimbal. This was combined with an outdoor set with the largest green mat in Korea, measuring 11m in height and 150m in width, to create a realistic and dynamic battle action scene that was not previously seen. In addition, in order to express the scientific and systematic battles of the Joseon Dynasty, which had a colorful weapon system reminiscent of modern times, all weapons of that time were newly produced by borrowing their appearance and principles. Based on Lee Seo's 'Hwapo Sik Eonhae', a representative military book that compiled information on gunpowder weapons in the Joseon Dynasty, castings were made for each size of each weapon, and gunpowder was installed in it to conduct repeated tests. By doing so, he spared no effort to realize the effect most similar to the actual weapon of the Joseon Dynasty.

Dress up the era and character in your costume! Craft over 1,000 pieces of armor
The costumes of <Myeongnyang> were a truly vast piece of work that had to reproduce the real times of Joseon and Japan at the time through the appearance of hundreds of grassroots and thousands of soldiers. In order to create a unique costume that reflects the historical evidence of the times and captures the cinematic imagination and the characters of each character, the costume team studied more than 16 related papers and went through a preparation process, such as analyzing the naval warfare of the shogunate period in Japan. The costumes of the minchos reflected the lives of the Joseon people devastated by the Imjin War for six years, but considering that the area where Admiral Yi Sun-sin was stationed was relatively stable, the reality of the play was enhanced with costumes that captured the situation of the times in detail. On the other hand, the armor of Admiral Yi Sun-sin and the Joseon Army was designed and produced by Director Kwon Kwon, based on domestic data and times, and the armor of the Japanese Army was produced locally by finding a Japanese armor master, maximizing the characteristics of each. The costumes, which put great effort in quantity and perfection, to the extent that the number of pieces of armor produced in this way exceeds 1,000, will be a special attraction unique to <Myeongryang>, which reflects the reality and cinematic characters of war and times.

Bring reality to action! 50 elite action troops!
In <Myeongryang>'s battle scenes and action, the most important part was reality without fiction. Rather than a heroic fantasy or flashy action for spectacle, we focused on shooting that could capture the situation realistically rather than flashy camera walking to create a war scene in which the souls of Admiral Yi Sun-sin and the soldiers, who were prepared to die on the sea, live and breathe. , vividly captures the dramatic situation of those who defended Joseon amid the fear of death. In addition, in order to produce as realistic a battle scene as possible, instead of the conventional method of mobilizing extras for each scene, 50 elite martial arts personnel were selected and learned the ritual movements such as swordsmanship, spearmanship, and bow before filming. practiced and went through the same training as in the real world. In this way, the battle scene of <Myeongryang>, which tried to realize the perfect reality of war even the movement of a single soldier, will captivate the audience with the vividness of the sweat and breath of Admiral Yi Sun-sin and the soldiers.

Breaking stereotypes of historical dramas! Music completed with a 150-piece orchestra!
<Myeongryang> doubles the emotion and thrill of Admiral Yi Sun-sin's films and historical dramas with bold music directing that goes beyond the stereotypes. The music of <Myeongryang>, which borrowed the motif from the classical music of the 17th and 18th centuries, to capture the universal emotion as a human being who witnesses and fights a huge war, rather than Admiral Yi Sun-sin as a hero in Korean history, is a heart-pounding brass. ) from the melodies to the delicate and elegant melodies of strings and pianos, to the magnificent orchestra, the overwhelming and dramatic melody that flows along the anguish and emotions of Admiral Yi Sun-sin and the ever-changing narrative of war captivates the ears and hearts. Music director Kim Tae-seong, who wanted to create an orchestra that lasts for two hours rather than simply fitting the music for each scene, is a Czech local of 150-member large-scale orchestra with about 50 brass parts, 60 string parts, and 40 woodwinds and percussion parts. Through recording, the magnificent music of <Myeongryang> was completed.
