Revolutionary warriors in the Republic, spies here.
My Nampa mission, born as a wild dog and raised as a monster
It's silly, but I'm a local idiot.

From the drama of Dal-dongne to the action of North Korea's most elite spy!
To express the original and more
The secret and great mission of the actors and staff has begun!

Ryu Hwan, Hae Rang, and Hae Jin were sent to the South on a mission to reunify the country! The production crew of <Secretly, Greatly> was given an equally important task. That is, the fun of the original should be preserved more abundantly, but the vitality of the live-action film should be exhibited. For this, the hard work of the actors and staff continued during the winter. Kim Soo-hyun, who played her first lead role in the movie through <Secretly and Greatly>, was born barefoot in slippers and a single tracksuit even in the cold weather that seemed to bite her skin. Nevertheless, he presented the best performance in every scene and received applause from the director and staff. Park Ki-woong, who took on the role of Lee Hae-rang, who was sent to South Korea on the mission of an aspiring rocker, boldly changed his hairstyle, increased his weight by 5 kg, and even learned the guitar himself, adding sincerity to his acting. Lee Hyeon-woo, who plays Lee Hae-jin, the youngest South Korean agent on a mission as a watcher of Ryu Hwan and Hae-rang, was immersed in practice to the point of preparing a separate lunch box to develop his stamina and muscular strength while challenging his first action performance.
The task given to the staff of <Secretly and Greatly> was to preserve the vividness. Dal-dongne, the main space in the movie, was discovered after 4 months of searching for about 60 dal-dong neighborhoods across the country. Here, the art team directly builds a total of 4 buildings and creates a lively atmosphere in Dal-dong, where Dong-gu rides a bicycle, delivers goods, and builds friendships with people through a large-scale work of reinventing an empty vacant lot into a playground. paid In addition, as it dealt with the stories of the elite spies who fled from North Korea to the South, accurate data on various elements related to North Korea were also needed. To this end, a defector who actually served as a soldier in North Korea took on the advice of the film and was verified not only in the North Korean dialect, but also in the office of a high-ranking North Korean officer in the play and props placed there. The movie <Secretly and Greatly>, which added the effort of the actors and staff to the fun of the original, will become a legend in theaters in June.

[ Epilogue ]

“The captain… next time you are born again
What kind of person do you want to be born as?”

“If that choice is possible,
Once upon a time it was normal
would be nice”


“In an ordinary country
in an ordinary house
Born as an ordinary child
continue to live normally
like that”
