Director Lee Byung-hun's amazing debut film of 'Master of Words'!

Director Lee Byung-hun's screenplay for <Twenty>, who has worked as a screenwriter for <Speed Scandal> <Sunny> and <Tazza-God's Hand>, drew attention from the film industry even before production due to its high level of perfection and witty dialogue.

Regarding director Lee Byung-hun, who fascinated the leading actors in Chungmuro, including Kim Woo-bin, Lee Jun-ho, and Kang Ha-neul, with the power of the screenplay, he said, "I heard rumors that the scenario was interesting, but when I read it, I fell in love with the director's witty lines and decided to appear on the spot."

It was perfect to be cast in his work I wanted to do together.” (Kang Ha-neul) The three did not spare their praise.

Director Lee Byung-hun, who is also a famous screenwriter in Chungmuro as 'Master of Horse Taste', said, "Since comedy is a genre that requires powerful dialogue, I have a sense of duty to make the audience laugh with words.

This is the beginning!
The birth of the screenplay for director Lee Byung-hun's <Twenty>

Why the hell is 'twenty'?
Twenty is a very interesting age looking back. It's an age where you can drink alcohol, but there is no price for alcohol, a place to stay for a year before becoming an adult, or a rehearsal period to become an adult. Thirty or forty years of constant thought, choice, and responsibility are the same, but since the age of 20 is the starting point, I decided to choose 'Twenty' as the title and subject of the movie. The script adapted from a first draft I wrote 10 years ago when I was the age of Kim Woo-bin, Lee Jun-ho, and Kang Ha-neul, begins with the sick friends around me. There are many aspects that are difficult to handle, so there are parts that are beautified and cute to some extent, but most of them are close to the actual appearance of me and my friends.

'Chiho' & 'Dongwoo' & 'Kyungjae' are my alter ego
‘Chiho’ (Kim Woo-bin), ‘Dong-woo’ (Lee Jun-ho), and ‘Kyung-jae’ (Kang Ha-neul) are all clones of me and my friends. If I think deeply, it is useless, but when I listen to it, I am immersed in 'Chiho', the owner of the talkative voice, reflecting my life as a surplus person in my early 20s. Since I was 20 years old and lived like Chiho, there were no major difficulties. 'Dongwoo', who is unnecessarily serious and persuaded by Chiho's remarks, realizes after a few seconds and enjoys it again, is actually my friend's name, and the story that that friend went through was used as it is. 'Kyung-jae', who makes a thorough plan but is eventually ignored by his friends, is also my friend's name. He is now an army officer, but he is a friend who dreamed of entering a prestigious university and joining a large company. By adding a little bit of sickness to the serious personality of that friend, he created the character of 'Gyeongjae' in <Twenty>.

Bonus track 'Invasion of Kkochu Planet' in the movie
The scenario 'Invasion of Kkochu Planet', in which 'Chiho', who dreams of becoming a film director, seriously recites to the film director in the play, is a story created to show Chiho's potential as a storyteller and unique ideas. By presenting this scenario, it seemed that Chiho's wackiness became a weapon and he would be successful in the future, and I hoped that he would be curious about his future even after the movie was over. It's a nonsensical story, but it took amazing creativity and crazy imagination, so I made it over and over again. To recall this story, I did nothing for over a week and just bruised. It was quite difficult.

the hidden meaning of laughter
Commentary on the famous scenes of director Lee Byung-hun's <Twenty>

# watching? The standard of Kim Woo-bin-pyo's work! A raid on the illegal dating tutoring site!
'Dong-woo' (Lee Jun-ho) and 'Kyung-jae' (Kang Ha-neul) watch the work site of 'Chi-ho' (Kim Woo-bin) and the girl behind the closet, holding their breath. The two suddenly jump out of the closet and join hands in the 'Om Mani Ban Me Home' posture to avoid the situation. Director Lee Byung-hun said, "This scene depicts the malevolent fantasy of men, but there are probably very few men around me who have done this. In <Twenty>, I added exaggeration to situations that few people have ever actually experienced like this.”

# If you drink alcohol, that person (?) will come to Kang Ha Neul! A revolutionary is born at the welcome party for new students!
New college student 'Gyeong-jae' (Kang Ha-neul) shows off an unimaginable injection at a freshman reception and becomes a social media star as a 'revolutionary man'. “There were many complaints about the irrational social situation. I thought the freshman reception was a small microcosm of such a society. The stories of the drunken 'Gyeongjae' are all true, but no one listens. I want you to see this scene as my own struggle against a stuffy society.”

# What style does your social life start with? Junho Lee's 2:8 part, who is straight but too straight!
Dong-woo (Lee Jun-ho), a retraining student who worked tirelessly to earn a living at a convenience store and a chicken house, for his dream of becoming a cartoonist. Eventually, he gets a job at his uncle's factory and surprises his friends by transforming into a 2:8 part that is straight but too straight. Manager Lee Byung-hun said, "If you don't have a job and don't have money, you lose more than you win. Seeing a compromise with reality is not a complacency, but a step back. It is a choice for a stepping stone for a leap forward.”

# Drunken Melody! The song 'What's your name' was sang with desperation.
'Gyeongjae' (Kang Ha-neul) is broken up by 'Jin-ju' (Min Hyo-rin), a senior in her club, whom she usually admires, and gets drunk and sang 4minute's 'What's Your Name?' The screams of 'Kyungjae' and 'Chi-ho' (Kim Woo-bin) and 'Dong-woo' (Lee Jun-ho) who hug him and grieve together are quite serious, but the audience bursts into laughter. Director Lee Byung-hun, who revealed that it is not a simple comedy but a scene of desperate emotions between the three people, said, “I am asking a meaningless question that is not very important to the frustration of the reality of not being able to take a step at the fork in life and getting drunk. 'Chiho' and 'Dongwoo', who feel the same way when they see 'Kyungjae' screaming, also cry, and the truth of the two people is just as impressive as 'Kyungjae's shot'.”

# A real hand-to-hand battle between Kim Woo-bin, Lee Jun-ho, and Kang Ha-neul, reminiscent of an action drama!
The real firefight of the three friends fighting against the demolition team that hit their hideout Chinese restaurant 'Sosobanjeom' is the highlight of <Twenty>. Director Lee Byung-hun picked Kim Woo-bin, Lee Jun-ho, and Kang Ha-neul's comic acting that reached the climax as a really funny but sad, 'funny' scene. But you can lose. I think that even if you fight ten times and win once, you are still successful. Maybe the will to fight is important,” he said, explaining the intention of the scene. In addition, the famous saying of Kurt Cobain, leader of Nirvana, 'the duty of youth is to fight corruption' was added to the meaning by quoting 'Kyungjae' as the line of 'Kyeongjae'.

[ Special Story ]

The shooting site exploded with not enough 24 hours!
Behind-the-scenes stories from the actors are revealed!

We introduce the story behind the shooting of <Twenty>, in which actors of the same age, Kim Woo-bin, Lee Jun-ho, and Kang Ha-neul, breathed easily and burst into laughter throughout the day to the extent that 24 hours a day were not enough.

Woobin Kim, laughing and NG! “It’s the first time in a scene like this”
Kim Woo-bin, who plays Chi-ho, said, "If you convert the three-month filming period of <Twenty> to 24 hours, 22 hours of that were spent laughing." "Every day was a series of episodes. There were a lot of scenes where the three of them matched, and it was really happy and fun when the three of them were together. It may be easier to shoot alone, but it was rather weak and less enjoyable.” He said, "I got a lot of NG from laughing at the <Twenty> site! In fact, the scenario was fun, so it was the hardest to hold back my laughter while acting.” He also compared the filming of <Twenty> to a ‘happy and enjoyable trip’.

Junho Lee's hand-to-hand combat, "The 'chemistry' of actors of the same age explodes"
Lee Jun-ho, who played the role of 'Dong-woo' in <Twenty>, in which the three actors of the same age, Kim Woo-bin, Lee Jun-ho, and Kang Ha-neul, showed off the male-male-male chemistry, said, "Even with ridiculous jokes, we laughed at each other. I was fortunate to be able to act together with actors my age, so I think I was able to show my true self without hesitation.” “Especially in the last Chinese restaurant scene, what is often referred to as 'chemistry' exploded. Please pay attention to the scene where the comic reaches its climax with an unintentional hand-to-hand battle.”

Kang Ha-neul's drunken joke, "I love <Twenty> team!"
Kang Ha-neul, who played the role of 'Kyung-jae' in <Twenty>, said, "It was always a fun filming location that I couldn't miss. During the local filming, while everyone was sleeping, while everyone was sleeping, I was so drunk that I shouted at the whale whale saying I love the <Twenty> team. The next day, the scene remained intact as a video, and I became a 'public enemy' and uploaded the mortal sin. It was a similar experience to the humiliation episode of 'Gyeongjae' in the movie," he said, telling a funny story. He also expressed confidence that the audience would be able to empathize with the happy filming atmosphere that the actors felt through the movie.
