Unstoppable action fighting spirit to become 'Ji Dong-cheol' down to the bone!

Actor Gong Yoo, who captivated women with his gentle charm in romantic comedies such as the drama [The 1st Coffee Prince Store] and the movie <Finding Kim Jong-wook>. Gong Yoo, who made a new transformation with heavy acting in the movie <The Crucible>, which was released in 2011 and mobilized 4.66 million people nationwide, made a comeback to the screen in 2 years through <The Suspect> It shows a tough and masculine charm. '

Gong Yoo, who plays the role of 'Ji Dong-cheol', a suspect chasing his own target while being the target of everyone, is an elite special agent character who has completed the rigorous training process in which only 3% of the play survives. He directly digested various high-level actions, including falling. To this end, Gong Yoo, who had undergone intensive training before filming, showed a passionate passion for action acting by refusing to double during filming and directing dangerous action scenes. In particular, in the case of climbing a rock wall, not only had to hang from a height of 40-50 m of an 80-m cliff, relying on a single wire, but, as the filming location was a quarry, the section was sharp and the risk of falling rocks was high despite the adverse conditions. He perfectly captured the extreme rock climbing scene. In addition, the scene of the fall from the Hangang Bridge also showed a bold performance of jumping 18m down by stepping on the railing and jumping despite many dangerous variables. In addition, from the heavy emotional acting of a man trying to find out who killed his wife and daughter while embracing their sadness in the play, he portrayed a character with a deeper emotion differentiated from the characters in the existing action movies. Director Won Shin-yeon said, "On the set, Gong Yoo always went one step further and stood on the limbs than we were worried about. Also, until the very end of the movie, he showed Ji Dong-cheol's appearance in a dense way, and he was holding the character of Ji Dong-cheol until the end." In this way, Gong Yoo's intense transformation by adding emotional acting to an action hot performance that goes beyond the limits of being perfectly transferred to 'Ji Dong-cheol' will be a viewing point that cannot be missed in the movie <Suspect>.

Actor Park Hee-soon, who swept the Blue Dragon Film Award and the Best Supporting Actor Award at the Korean Film Awards that year for her role as a reckless detective in the movie <Seven Days>, left a deep impression with her bold acting in works such as <Operation> and <Client>. He took on the role of Colonel Min Se-hoon, who pursues Ji Dong-cheol as the best in the field of counter-espionage recognized by everyone with his unhesitating judgment and determination. The character, Colonel Min, a crazy hunting dog who never misses the target, was completed as a character with a strong presence through the efforts of Park Hee-soon, who paid attention to every detail from his eyes to his facial expression.
Kim Seok-ho, the head of the National Intelligence Service, who tracks Ji Dong-cheol along with Dae-ryung Min, won the Daejong Film Festival Best Supporting Actor Award for his intense villain character who commissions a contract murder in the movie <The Yellow Sea>. Jo Seong-ha, who shows various charms by going back and forth between the screen and the CRT, takes on the role and adds a sense of weight. Jo Seong-ha, who plays Chief Kim, a secret figure who holds another key to the power and murder case, evokes dramatic tension with his mean and overwhelming charisma based on his deep acting skills.
Yoo Da-in, who was recognized for her acting skills by winning the 2011 Korean Film Critics Association Award for Best New Actress for her impressive performance in the movie <Hyehwa, Dong>, is proud and energetic through the role of 'Kyung-hee Choi', a PD who is persistently digging for the truth in <Suspect>. He leads the play with an overflowing figure.

Juche shooting, car chasing, rock climbing, falling on the Han River, sky diving
Land, sea, air, and Hong Kong, Puerto Rico
Show the end of real action!

In order to capture a realistic and colorful action that has never been seen before, <Suspect> focused on directing new action with a bold attempt than any other movie, from juche fighting to car chasing, rock climbing, falling down the Han River, and skydiving. First of all, the Juche Martial Art was newly born as an instinctive and threatening action of the <Suspect> rather than a pre-calculated and planned action by introducing the Russian Sistema Martial Art. In addition, in order to show car action that goes beyond the limits of existing movies, the production team focused on directing a new and more explosive car chasing rather than a pattern already familiar to the audience through thorough preparation in advance. For this purpose, various car actions include cool car chasing across the city center, using the terrain of a narrow residential area to go down a steep stairway backwards, two cars running against each other at a speed of 80 km, and a sprint head-on collision scene. This was completed. In addition, for the realism of the action, actual filming was conducted in the residential area of Oksu-dong and the middle of Yongsan shopping district, and the actor took all the filming in the car himself, capturing the breathtaking sense of realism of car chasing.

On the other hand, in the play, Ji Dong-cheol's rock climbing and falling down the Han River are also scenes where Gong Yoo personally filmed, and the camera also digs into the middle of the dangerous scene and captures the expression and movement of the actor who performs emotional acting along with action without missing the end of the play. Doubles the immersion. In addition, in the airborne drop training scene of Colonel Min, the actual fall of skydiving experts is unfolded, and the dramatic scene of sweating in the cool sky is delivered vividly. In addition, <The Suspect> shows Ji Dong-cheol's activities as a special agent more dramatically through filming overseas locations in Hong Kong and Puerto Rico. The dim back alleys and shabby harbor overlooking the skyscrapers of Hong Kong, the peaceful and exotic view of Puerto Rico in contrast to the dangerous back-dealing scene, and the bombing scene that breaks the tranquility raise tension with an exotic atmosphere and a sense of scale. <Suspect>, who took a risk and took a drastic filming of the director, staff, and actors for action that goes beyond the limits and realistic action, focuses on the scale by shooting overseas locations such as Hong Kong and Puerto Rico as well as land, sea, and air. The extreme real action taken will excite the hearts of the audience.

Also, through <The Chaser>, cinematographer Lee Seong-je, who won the Daejong Film Festival Cinematography Award that year, shows a more spectacular video through <The Suspect>. .
