The king's secret space, which is the main background of the film, added a special space by borrowing the round arch of Western gothic architecture from the entrance. The high ceiling reminiscent of a Western library, the books stacked on top of it, and anatomical materials that fill the space, as well as the meeting table of the king and the guides made in the form of an octagonal stage octagon, reveals free-spirited and curious Yejong characters. At the same time, it shows a young and modern sense. This space was completed with a lot of effort, with a production period of only 4 weeks, and about 30 staff members. Considering that the basement, which is another major location in the film, is the most natural space located under an old hut, realistic rocks, tree roots, and tree supports were used to create a different atmosphere. And based on the cinematic imagination, the Korean version of the submarine submersible ship was produced by matching materials such as wood, Korean paper, and nets in a combination that could actually float on water.
