“It’s all done!”

“It’s all right” that started with “It’s not all right”
From the mask of an animal deceived even by 'steamed' animals to the mascot of Dongsan Park, 'Black Nose'
Vivid reality realized with all-time special makeup and CG!

“It doesn’t work”
Hyo-gyun Hwang, CEO of CELL, who was in charge of the special makeup, said the most to director Son Jae-gon. Crocodiles, sea turtles, rhinos, tigers, etc. have different joint points, long waists, and excessively short limbs, so many animals were excluded from the candidate group for various reasons. Current animal characters that can be played have been confirmed.

The special makeup team, which started making masks, was the first to find the fur. The final fur suit was completed with the advice of a veterinarian with experience working in a zoo, as well as considering the quality and thickness, brightness and color of each hair by mobilizing various animal hairs such as yak, goat, fox, and wolf. In order to express the close-up look, a sponge and cotton-lined muscle suit were additionally produced. Here, we have prepared every detail, from a latex pouch for a polar bear drinking Coke, a nail sensor for a sloth that chews, and two versions of a polar bear head that reflects the change in the angle of the head when walking on quadrupeds and bipeds. The animal masks, produced over 4-5 months for each character, enhance the immersion of the play with the realism that not only the viewers of Dongsan Park in the play, but also the viewers of the movie feel “Is it plausible?” In fact, it is said that a real giraffe who was there while filming at the zoo's radiation room found a model of a giraffe with a decapitated neck and looked at it for a while.

Animal masks, which are like the 6th protagonist of <Don't Harm>, received more special management than the actors. Textile deodorant and hair dryer for change of clothes were essential, and numerous combing and waxing to prevent hair clumps, hair management to restore volume to dead places, as well as broken nails and stitching torn suits were common. There was even a waiting room dedicated to containers for animal masks.

On the other hand, the polar bear 'Black Nose', the mascot of Dongsan Park, who has been with 'Sowon' since childhood, is a digital character realized in full CG. 'Black Nose' had a special behavioral style in the setting of the movie, and since it has a very important meaning in the story, every effort was made to avoid any awkwardness in its existence. After researching the data, starting from the bones and muscles, through numerous processes such as analyzing and reproducing the different hair styles for each part, a vivid and natural 'black nose' was born. Not only that, the CG team's craftsmanship, which meticulously embodied the animals sold in Dongsan Park (tigers, giraffes, etc.)

“Don’t be scared! Tea Anna!”

Created by the passion of motion directors and actors
Polar bear – lion – giraffe – gorilla – sloth's 'no-look smoke'!
From delicate emotional expression to intense action, it is perfectly digested!

The five Dongsan Park actors and motion actors fought a fierce battle to express 'people who became animals instead of animals', the first attempt in Korean film history.

First of all, Korean motion acting has expressed gorillas, dinosaurs, zombies, ghosts, and monsters through <Mr. Motion director Kim Heung-rae, who is the number one leader in the company, joined <Don't Hurt> and gave me strength. During the pre-production period, the actors who received a demonstration video related to animal acting from him practiced in advance while familiarizing themselves with the movements of their respective animals. Actors who learned the characteristics and behaviors of each animal had to fight the battle against 'animal masks' after the full-scale filming began. Wearing an animal mask weighing about 10 kg from head to toe, sweating profusely and performing passionately between animals and people, as well as having to move a giraffe with a neck weight of only 20 kg to look alive. Muscles that are not normally used to bridge the structural difference between animals and humans, from polar bears, which were highly mobile in a quadrupedal posture, to lions that have to support their large heads, gorillas with long arms, and sloths hanging from trees. Raising it to its limit required considerable stamina. Here, it was also hard for the actors to hold back the laughter that escaped from each other's realistic animal performances.

Also, due to the nature of the animal disguise, the five actors and motion actors at Dongsan Park had to perform 'no-look acting' in a state where they could not see the front because they did not match the human gaze. As if on a theatrical stage, they worked on filming while thoroughly memorizing all movements and movements, and completed each animal through the process of checking their performances through monitors from time to time and correcting each gesture.

Motion director Kim Heung-rae and motion actors who guided and presented animal performances that melted the narrative and personality of each character, and Dongsan Park 5 members who overcame various restrictions and challenged the all-time single and two roles Ahn Jae-hong, Kang So-ra, Park Young-gyu, Kim Seong-oh, and Jeon Yeobin. With the passion and effort of those who perfectly digested everything from delicate emotional acting to intense action moves, you will be able to meet a mixed animal = human character that you have never seen anywhere else in <Don't Hurt>.

“It turned and turned properly!”

Perfect reception from Busan-Ulsan-Jinju-Gwangju-Jeonju-Cheongju!
Completed with locations all over the country and a set of extra-large radiation fields
To the park of dreams and hopes!

The entrance and ticket office of the zoo where the exciting 'Dongsan Park' theme song is played is at Samjeong The Park in Busan, a part of the polar bear park is at Ulsan Grand Park, and the sloth Bangjang where the romance between the gorilla 'Geonuk' and the sloth 'Hae-gyeong' unfolds and autumn The scenic trail is at the Gyeongsangnam-do Arboretum in Jinju, the Gwangju Uchi Park Zoo is where the neck of a giraffe is located, the entrance to the Gorilla Park is at Jeonju Zoo, and the bird room where 'Sowon' and 'The Great Chief' are arguing is at Cheongju Land Zoo, literally all over the country. After going around the zoo, Dongsan Park in <Don't Hurt> was able to be born.

Meanwhile, shooting at the zoo is Mission Impossible itself. Filming at the bird room had to give up simultaneous recording due to the chirping of parrots and other birds, and the real tiger radiation field, which appeared as the lion room in the play, is a realization of how powerful the tiger energy is due to the poisonous smell of 'it'. I had to go to filming. Also, in the shooting at the giraffe field, an unexpected situation occurred where the giraffe had to be lured with bread hung on a pole with the help of the zookeeper to prevent the giraffe from getting caught in the actual angle. Even the famous actor Meerkat, who won the movie, was filmed in an extraordinary situation just like the movie. Above all, the shooting at the actual zoo was done in a quieter atmosphere than any other movie site because the staff and actors had to be very careful not to startle the animals.

An extra-large open set was created here, adding to the vibrancy of the film. A polar bear and gorilla cage was built over a period of two and a half months on a site of 4,500 pyeong in Gijang Ceramics Village in Busan. The set produced on a huge scale of 210 pyeong and 150 pyeong, respectively, was able to vividly depict the breathtaking camouflage work of the polar bear Tae-su and Geon-uk, the gorilla, who are the most mobile among the five of Dongsan Park. In particular, the movie's highlight, the polar bear drinking Coke and the cheering audience, will be captured more realistically to deliver the bright and cheerful atmosphere of the play to the audience. Ahn Jae-hong, who performed as a polar bear drinking Coke, said, “I remember the climax scene as the hottest moment when I acted while breathing with over 200 auxiliary actors on a huge set.” The dream and hope Dongsan Park, completed with the passion and effort of the staff, can be seen through <Do Not Harm> in January 2020.
