Son Ye-jin, who revealed the reason for appearing in <Negotiation>, said, "It was good that the character 'Ha Chae-yoon' had a subjective and human appearance." Focusing on my real self and 'Ha Chae-yoon', I completed the character," he said, foretelling the passionate performance of 'Son Ye-jin's Pyo' once again.

Through the dramas [My Name is Sam-soon Kim] and [Secret Garden], he caused 'Hyun Bin Syndrome' with sensational popularity, a meticulous escort man in <Late Autumn>, King Jeongjo in agony in <Rebellion>, and the belief of <Cooperation>. Actor Hyun Bin, who captivates the public by exuding his own unique charm in any role, whether it is a North Korean detective Chan or an intelligent con artist in <The Swindler>, takes on the worst hostage criminal character in history and challenges his first villain. “I liked the story with the pushing power of the one-on-one confrontation between the negotiator and the hostage criminal, and I found the character ‘Min Tae-goo’ attractive.” approached I tried to give it a surprise, such as using a languid, throwing tone and acting without strength in scenes that are likely to come out strong.”

Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin, who worked together for the first time through <Negotiation>, performed realistic performances reminiscent of a confrontation between a real negotiator and a hostage criminal with amazing concentration and character digestion even in a situation where they faced each other only through monitors at the shooting site.

He has an excellent understanding of the overall flow of the film and knows how to create his own color within it.

Through <Negotiation>, I will show you a new side of me that I have never seen before.” As such, <Negotiation> is a movie where you can see Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin's acting transformation, faces that have not been seen before, and new expressions.

Participation created a more tense atmosphere.

Bringing realistic situations and detailed emotions to life!
The birth of a production design where reality and characters come alive!

The movie <Negotiation> is about the confrontation between 'Min Tae-gu' (Hyun Bin), who takes the worst hostage play in history, and 'Ha Chae-yoon' (Son Ye-jin), a negotiator who opposes him. Due to the nature of the film, most of the events take place within a limited space and time, so a lot of thought went through before the production design in the film was born.

The most important space in <Negotiation> is the 'Situation Room', where 'Ha Chae-yoon' and 'Min Tae-gu' play a tight match through a monitor. Equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, this is an open space with all of the walls made of tempered glass. At first glance, it seems safe, but there is a space to hide because dozens of people with entangled interests are working in unison wherever they are. There is also no place In addition, it is a space that perfectly fits with the situation in which the police, the military, the National Intelligence Service, and high-ranking government officials are watching each other and fighting each other in order to take the initiative in the special situation room. You can feel the frustration of 'Ha Chae-yoon', who is rushed into the case without knowing the English language, collides with high-pressure superiors on every case, and has no choice but to be nervous about 'Min Tae-goo''s unpredictable behavior.

On the other hand, the 'hostage warehouse' of 'Min Tae-gu' is a closed space. It was set up in a completely sealed concept, with no idea where it was or what time it was. The space that negotiator 'Chae-yoon Ha' can see through the monitor is more limited, so it can be seen as a space structure in which it is difficult to obtain any information. In addition, it was created as a space that more clearly shows the contrast between the two characters, the negotiator and the hostage-taker, who set up opposite angles. Unlike the 'situation room', where fierce operations are conducted to rescue the hostages, in a cold blue tone, the 'hostage warehouse' where the worst hostage play takes place is set in a warm red tone, emphasizing the paradoxical meaning of the space, as well as emphasizing the paradoxical meaning of the space. It captures the duality of the character.

In the second half of the movie, the 'VIP Room', a place where negotiator 'Chae-yoon Ha' and hostage criminal 'Min Tae-gu' meet only once in the play, and the space for people at the top of the power, is the color of the 'situation room', blue The color red was properly matched. This reveals the process in which 'Ha Chae-yoon' and 'Min Tae-goo' come to understand each other through the detailed emotional exchange and tight psychological confrontation of the last negotiation process.
The production design of <Negotiation>, which was born over the limitations of such a limited space and limited time, will give the reality and character a living, breathing life, and will make the movie more enjoyable.
