Following the box office boom of Korean films that hit theaters this summer, the Chuseok big match has begun! Compared to previous years, it is expected that Korean films of various genres and various materials will play an all-out war on Chuseok this year. Among them, the most competitive genre is comedy. The comic crime mystery drama <Detective: The Beginning> draws attention as the 'only comedy film' in this Chuseok clash.

<Detective: The Beginning> is a movie about a secret joint mystery operation between detective Gang Dae-man (Kwon Sang-woo), a detective who dreams of becoming a Korean 'Sherlock', and legendary detective Roh Tae-soo (Seong Dong-il) of the metropolitan investigation team. Sung Dong-il, who will show a different charisma with his first silver hair transformation, returns to the comic acting of Kwon Sang-woo, who transformed his detective-like reasoning power into a useless comic book owner, and his excellent acting ability that does not disappoint. The meeting of these two combos is already receiving a lot of attention. In particular, even though they see each other as obstacles in the investigation, the scenes where they share their sorrows after being found out about their low positions at home form a consensus, and the exquisite combination with the mystery and mystery genre gives a fresh charm that has never been seen in Korean films. .

Birth of a complete comedy mystery play

<Detective: The Beginning>, which will captivate theaters this Chuseok with the perfect harmony of comedy and mystery, was born as a highly complete comic mystery drama with the participation of many talented people from Chungmuro. First of all, cinematographer Ki Se-hoon, who has produced major works such as <Love Poetry> and <Secret Investigation>, participated and captured the charm of <Detective: The Beginning> on the screen, from the comical appearance of Kwon Sang-woo and Sung Dong-il to the action.

Completed with Kwon Sang-woo's hand, casting a 7-month-old child?
Seohyun-yang Hong, the best scene stealer in <Detective: The Beginning> with all-out acting (?)

While child-rearing entertainment has been receiving a lot of love from viewers due to its high ratings recently, <Detective: The Beginning> also has a very special child role casting that is no less interesting. Hong Seo-hyeon, who plays 'Hong-ji', the daughter of 'Kang Dae-man', is the main character. Hong Seo-hyeon, a 7-month-old child, is said to have captured the attention of field staff by showing veteran facial expressions and crying performances that are appropriate for the situation, although she cannot speak.
Infants less than a year old are not easy to control, so it is true that casting is avoided in film shooting where the on-site situation is flexible. However, the casting was completed with the strong recommendation of Kwon Sang-woo, who is confident in parenting. Perhaps thanks to her father Kwon Sang-woo's devoted care in the play, Hong Seo-hyun showed a perfect performance that completely washed away the concerns around her, and it is said that she received a lot of love from the actors and crew for 'Flower on the Set'. Kwon Sang-woo, who worked with the youngest actress ever, admired Hong Seo-hyun's acting skills, who burst into tears and laughter in the right place, calling her a 'true scene stealer'.

Sung Dong-il's first intense underwater action in his 25-year acting career!
5m deep underwater fighting scene without band

Sung Dong-il, who took on the role of 'Roh Tae-soo' in <Detective: The Beginning>, will present intense underwater action for the first time in his 25-year acting career. In this work, Sung Dong-il perfectly digested the scene of an underwater fight with a criminal in a 5-meter-deep aquarium without a band. It is said that the filming was completed perfectly even in situations where movement was restricted due to heavy clothing such as trench coats and suits, as well as not being able to see the front as soon as you take off your goggles due to intraocular pressure.
Seong Dong-il said at a press conference for <Detective: The Beginning> held on the 24th that underwater shooting was the most difficult filming of his acting career so far. In other words, the difficult process of action shooting was sublimated into laughter.
Director Kim Jung-hoon also said, “The filming was not easy for the crew because the cinematographer had to stay in the water for a long time enough to use four oxygen tanks alone. Thanks to Sung Dong-il and the filming staff, who showed an uncompromising performance, we were able to shoot the best scenes that add to the tension of the movie.”
