I think it doesn’t just reflect Korean society. But the message attempts to portray the inaction of the neglected or the human being. By calling these things This is an important part of whether humans can help one another or not.

The first time I read this webtoon was before COVID-19. I looked at Seoul’s sky with PM2.5 issues and felt the dystopian mood at that time.It made me want to see the sky that was really blue. But when COVID-19 Became an epidemic that spread throughout the world This caused the question to appear again whether humans would ultimately be able to save one another or not.

It is undeniable that something is very outstanding. Sweet Home Is a production that consists of almost every scene of CG I want you to tell me about it.

For this series I can tell that there is no cut that does not include any CGs. Which is where the team works very hard. I tried to put in a lot of CGs. To make everything as comprehensive as possible Personally, I think this is probably a point that the viewer has not seen in any other movie or series. That comes out now Both in terms of quantity and quality

This series has a lot of monsters. But what I really want to focus on Is the question of what are humans and monsters As Cha Hyun Soo said in this story “Some monsters don’t hurt humans. I don’t think the wishes are bad. But monsters aren’t always bad. ” That’s why I tried to convey that idea in directing this series.

They honored to come to Korea by themselves to work on this project.

We take oneA and a half years in the making of these monsters. Because they don’t want to disappoint webtoon fans So I tried to make the monster as close to the webtoon as possible. And don’t forget toIt reflects the desire that they become that monster. And put a lot of humanity in it, both in shape and character. Where he transformed because he tried to contract his muscles and show off We designed a corner of the mouth to make him smile. Makes when he speaks even more creepy Here are some interesting points that will make the viewer feel even more intimidated.

We expect this series to be as perfect as possible. And hope that these intending teams will receive the appreciation from the audience.

Besides the matter of creating these monsters On the production side, it was almost entirely recreated with care as well.

Sweet Home It is a series that has been produced quite well. We started from rebuilding the Green Homes apartment as the main location for the shooting.

We try to look for things that express desires in the human mind and body.

If you try to analyze from many works Past story We have always found that one of your prominence is your selection of leading actors that look perfect and fit for a lot of roles, so let’s talk about the strengths of each actor you choose for this series.

Most proudly presenting it is the gathering of the actors in a very harmonious story. As a series about life and disaster. Therefore there are scenes that have to be gathered together a lot If the cast doesn’t fit The series would be very messy.

For our lead actor Song Kang Although he is a newcomer who has not had a lot of work. But I think he expresses his emotions and eyes without good lines. Most importantly, he can handle sadness very well.

As for professional actor Lee Jin Wook, he is able to switch between various forms of visual communication. The highlight that amazes me is that he shows his eyes that convey both the emotions of the brutal and the emotions of the little boy at the same time.

As for actress Lee Si Young, I told her before filming that If you exercise a little bit more, it should work out, which I really don’t force anything. But when we meet again She comes with abs like you did in the trailer. Which looks very cool

Sweet Home This is a Netflix original series. Want to know how the process differs from TV series in Korea? What’s so exciting behind the scenes of this production?

The director can edit and send as many works as he thinks appropriate for the drama. It’s a really fun part of the production process. In addition, since I want everyone to see Sweet Home So quickly prepare for the pre-production and the production period at the same time. While writing the script, they also designed the monster.
