[ I made it like this ]

I've been to all over the country except North Korea!
From the realization of the Daedong River to the huge embankment set! Cool sights, perfectly reproduced on the screen!

The most important story in the movie <Bongi Kim Seon-dal> can be said to be the ‘Daedong River fraud case’ in which ‘Kim Seon-dal’s fraud’ led by ‘Kim Seon-dal’ (Yoo Seung-ho) takes on the absolute power of ‘Seong Dae-ryun’ (Cho Jae-hyun). As such, the biggest concern and mission of the production team, including director Park Dae-min, was how to implement the Pyongyang Taedonggang, the main stage of the super-large fraudulent drama. To this end, the production team traversed all over the country, scouring all the rivers' tributaries, and after putting a lot of effort into site hunting, they were able to collage several rivers and create one huge Taedonggang on the screen. One of the most important places was where the embankment would be built, where the biggest fraud in the movie would take place. The embankment built according to Seondal Kim's fraudulent plan in the play is huge and large, but the biggest difficulty was finding the best place to synthesize CG into the actual river. Director Park Dae-min and art director Lee Tae-hoon went through a lot of discussion so that the space, which had not been easily seen in Korean films, could be shown realistically and with a sense of scale. To this end, after searching all over the country, he found the optimal topography for the dike scene in Jinan, Jeollabuk-do, and was able to create a high-quality scene from the construction of the embankment to the cool water flowing at the end of the movie. On the other hand, director Park Dae-min, who wanted to show real-life spaces rather than artificial feelings in location locations or various spaces appearing in movies, said, “In order for the audience to be naturally immersed in the story, the place in the play exists. I thought it would be good to give it a feeling like a place where you can do it,” he said, adding reality to the film by organizing the space to feel a sense of life. The continuous effort of the production team to realize such an open and cool space composition and reality raises the level of perfection of the film and raises expectations of prospective audiences.

A speedy chase on land and water!
Even special shooting skills for a thrilling chase action!
Cool, fast, and enjoy!

Another point to enjoy <Bongi Kim Seon-dal> is the speedy chase. Director Park Dae-min said, "I wanted to show the chase of 'Kim Seon-dal's fraud', who is good at running away, in an exciting way. We worked hard to show various kinds of chases on land and water.” For a thrilling chase scene while at the same time making use of the 'pleasure' in the action scene, director Park Dae-min went through continuous discussions with the staff throughout the filming, and wanted to make the audience feel their heart speeding up along with 'Kim Seon-dal's deceit'. . One of the most elaborate action scenes for this is the 'Kim Seon-dal fraudulent defeat' and the chase with the Uigeumbu. The chasing scene in the movie is a re-creation of images shot in three locations, Namyangju, Sokcho, and Masan, into one scene. Cinematographer Kim Jong-jin said, “The street chase scene needed the place that enters the frame the most, the place that requires movement, and the place where the story is told. We decided that the route was the most needed.” Accordingly, in the horizontal direction, while expressing descriptive cuts about where 'Kim Seon-dal' and the crowds chasing him are going, Steadicam digested the breathing of the actors running in a space of 200 meters at a time, and in the vertical direction, the characters At the same time, I wanted to show the characters running through the two alleys at the same time through the 100-meter moving rail at the same time. The hard work of the production team who went through detailed discussion and filming for this thrilling pursuit action will make <Bongi Kim Seon-dal> more enjoyable, faster, and more enjoyable.

A whopping 500 pieces of actor costumes alone! From clothes that make use of splendor and lightness
Even makeup to express 'fun, realism, and variety'!
A splendid spectacle created by the infinite efforts of the makeup team and the costume team!

Another highlight of <Bongi Kim Seon-dal> is the fun of seeing the transformation of the characters. This is because, whenever various fraudulent episodes occur, 'Kim Seon-dal's fraud' not only presents various disguise, but also a feast of colorful costumes throughout the movie. Director Park Dae-min said that he wanted to show off costumes that could show splendor as the scammers are the main characters of the movie. To this end, costume director Yoon Mi-ra produced as many as 500 costumes for actors after careful consideration by referring to thorough historical data and papers. In addition, he said that he repeatedly thought about creating a silhouette that made use of the characteristics of the character by emphasizing the beauty of restraint contained in the hanbok, while at the same time expressing the dynamism using the wide width of the hanbok, while preserving the lightness by arranging the monotone throughout the costume. As an example, the costume of 'Kim Seon-dal', a genius con artist who leads the fraudulent team, emphasizes a rich silhouette while making the details of the application simple, expressing a sense of weight that is not suppressed by the charisma of 'Seong Dae-ryun'. In addition, to show the straight and strong character of 'Kim Seon-dal', the collar and sympathy were emphasized, and the sleeves were widened and the length was increased to make the action look gorgeous. On the other hand, makeup director Kim Yong-gwan focused on fun, realistic, diverse, but faithful to historical research to realistically portray 'Bongi Kim Seon-dal' on a more realistic background. He uses 'Kim Seon-dal' as a pleasant and attractive active strategist, 'Bo-won' as a cute and fun assistant, 'Bosal Yoon' as the owner of fatal charm, 'Gyeon-i' as the pure 'Little Kim Seon-dal', and 'Song Da-ryun' as absolute power. It is set with the charisma of the artist and presents each makeup that perfectly matches it. In this way, the costumes and makeup that fit each character's personality and scene will make the audience more immersed in the movie.
