[ production note ]

01. 'Body robbery' Even a medical expert kneels in a unique material!
The imagination in the film is gradually becoming a reality. When released in 1997, the movie <Face Off>, which caused controversy for the story that the faces of the two main characters were exchanged through surgery, was released in late November 2005. The success of the face transplant surgery of Like this, <The Game>, in which the bodies of two men are swapped through brain surgery, is also not only happening in movies, but it seems possible in the not too distant future in reality. According to the opinion of the experts who participated in the process of planning the film for the first time, the next stage of research that can treat damaged nerve cells, myocardial cells, diabetes, etc., well known as 'Hwang Woo-seok's stem cells', is the 'The Game' material. Brain transplantation is possible. The unique material of body robbery in <The Game>, which made even medical specialists slap their knees, seems to be an example of expanding the realm of Korean cinema.

02. Surgery scene asking 150 million won!
The production team paid attention to the most notable scene in the movie, the operation scene of Min Hee-do and Kang No-sik. It was a bold set production to put the operating room with a unique and strange feeling from the movie, which is different from the existing hospital operating room. Since brain surgery is the most important part of surgery, equipment used for actual surgery was required. As a result, the production crew looked for expensive equipment necessary for surgery, and managed to gather information that a medical seminar in which all doctors and medical equipment companies participated was being held in Gyeongju. And, as a result of the PT at the seminar, the production team was able to reproduce the perfect operating room by receiving expert advice as well as a total of 150 million won worth of equipment, such as precision microscopes for brain surgery, medical devices, and operating tables, which are few in Korea. there was.

03. Actors' unconventional shave, Jeolla acting!
<The Game>, where the understanding and research on the character had to be different than any other role. Because the roles of Min Hee-do to Kang No-sik and Kang No-sik to Min Hee-do were reversed in a one-time game that risked their lives, the actors' hardships were not the only ones. Both actors boldly abandoned their previous images and shaved their heads for the surgical scene in which the roles of each other were reversed. However, the actors who were worried about the staff saying that they look younger after shaving were able to comfortably act.

In particular, Shin Ha-kyun went all-in on <The Game> with a daring Jeolla acting that actors may be most reluctant to. In the scene of bathing with a youthful body after the bet, the acting that reveals all the back from head to toe is also immortal. Ha-kyun Shin, who is usually quiet and shy, is very shy, but once he enters the filming stage, he takes on acting without any hesitation. Byun Hee-bong also performed as passionately as Shin Ha-kyun. Kang No-sik, who has won the world's wealth and honor, but is waiting for death with his life, after a seizure and a bet, Hee-do, who fell into the abyss, endures pain because of his ailing body, leaves a strong impression due to his poor acting skills. . The performances of Byun Hee-bong and Shin Ha-kyun, who burned their fighting spirits, will add to the fun of watching <The Game> and arouse vivid sympathy.

04. <The Game>'s hidden helper, painter Lee Tae-kyung!
In order to express the life of Noblesse Kang No-sik, where everything from a huge mansion to an office with a neat interior, the production team, who wanted a cool set and painting, went around the country to recruit. And finally, I was able to meet Lee Tae-kyung, a famous painter not only in Korea but also abroad, creating a sensation in the art market. Drawing attention mainly on psychological changes and emotional communication of characters, he showed a lot of interest in <The Game>, such as visiting the Busan set in person to discuss the concept with the director and actors after seeing the scenario. And he promised to do anything that would help the movie, and in addition to portraits of the actors, he gave the production crew a picture just for <The Game>. This painting was hung in the hallway when Hee-do entered the mansion at the beginning of the movie, led by No-shik's sweet proposal, and it overwhelms the viewer with a mysterious and mysterious feeling that seems to foreshadow the future fate of No-sik Kang and Min Hee-do.

05. Life's biggest gamble born in 'rain'!
In <The Game>, there are many scenes where it rains. Various kinds of rain scenes such as rain and drizzle appear in order to convey the change of heart of the main character more clearly to the audience. However, since various state-of-the-art equipment used for filming is the opposite of water, the <The Game> staff had to desperately defend the camera and lighting equipment for every rain scene. In addition, although it is summer, it was the worst situation for actors and staff to go to filming in an environment where the temperature was basically dropping at night and it was hit by artificial rain that weighed more than 127 tons. However, the actors and staff went to the filming, defending the lowering body temperature despite the murderous environment, such as slipping in the mud and ripped raincoats. With the fighting spirit of these actors and staff, the rain scene, which accounts for about 30% of <The Game>, was able to be completed by adding strength to the confrontation between Min Hee-do and Kang No-sik with vivid and high quality.
