On the 19th, a production briefing session for the movie ‘Deadman’ (director Ha Jun-won) was held at Megabox Seongsu in Seongdong-gu, Seoul. Director Ha Jun-won and actors Cho Jin-woong, Kim Hee-ae, and Lee Soo-kyung attended the event.

‘Dead Man’ is a story about a so-called businessman ace who makes money by living up to his name, but after being falsely accused of embezzling 100 billion won and living as a dead person, he sets out to track down people who are entangled with just one name and to regain the life that was stolen from them. It is a movie that tells a story.

Cho Jin-woong played the role of Lee Man-jae, a man who went from being the ace of the barge business world to becoming a dead man after being falsely accused, and Kim Hee-ae played the role of Mrs. Shim, the best consultant in politics with a reputation for making a name for herself.


Lee Soo-kyung pursues Lee Man-jae’s whereabouts and says, “Lee Man-jae is alive.”She plays the main role of Gonghee, the channel operator, and boasts an unstoppable charm.

‘Deadman’ is the debut film of director Ha Jun-won, who co-wrote the screenplay for Bong Joon-ho’s film ‘The Monster’.

Director Ha Jun-won investigated the crimes of identity theft and ‘Baji Boss’ through meticulous reporting over a long period of five years. It depicts a story full of tension with repeated twists and turns based on the world.

On this day, Cho Jin-woong said, “I felt that it was a well-made story. The director did very thorough research for about 5 years. I wondered if such record-breaking events actually happened. “Not many people know this, but I thought this was a very scary place,” he said.


He continued, “So, as I carefully unraveled the thread of this story, I became aware that I should never touch such a dark place. I think the director did a good job of explaining that part through the characters. “It was a very attractive scenario,” he added.

Kim Hee-ae also showed affection for the character she played, Mrs. Shim, and explained, “It was a character I had never heard of.”

He continued, “It’s a political consultant role, and I thought it was a character that any actress would covet because she was such an attractive person. He said he was familiar with director Ha Jun-won because he co-wrote director Bong Joon-ho’s ‘Monster’, so he showed him the scenario. “While discussing who should play the character of Mrs. Shim, I heard that the character of Mrs. Shim was so difficult to match with Korean actors,” he said.

Also, “I Koreanized the character a little and created a character called Mrs. Shim, and this character was very mysterious and precious to me. “She was really happy,” he said.


Lee Soo-kyung also said, “Gong Hee-joo is a very persistent and hot woman. When I went to acting school, senior Kim Hee-ae was the person I told her I wanted to be like. And I was a fan of senior Cho Jin-woong ever since he appeared in the drama ‘Deep-Rooted Tree’, so I even collected photos of him. “It was so amazing that I was able to work with these two people,” he said proudly.

Cho Jin-woong expressed his surprise at the deep and dark world of ‘Baji Boss’ that he learned while filming ‘Deadman’, and Kim Hee-ae also said, ‘I was surprised to hear so many professional talks. It was. She said, “It was really dramatic because the director personally went and researched that difficult world.”

Lee Soo-kyung also said, “It’s a subject that can be commonly encountered in current affairs programs, but in “Deadman,” each drama has its own story. He added, “It was very fun to rotate like a gear wheel according to the characters and situations.”


Director Ha Jun-won expressed his gratitude for being able to work with Cho Jin-woong, Kim Hee-ae, and Lee Soo-kyung for his first directing work, and also explained the five-year reporting process.

Director Ha Jun-won said, “Everyone lives with responsibility for their own name, right? However, as we live, we come across many people who cannot take responsibility for their own names. “So, when a problem occurs and I see various incidents where the person who should be responsible for the problem is not responsible, I felt a sense of social issues as a director and writer, and I thought it would be good to cover it in a story.”

Also, “Pants boss”is a familiar word, but it is also a subject that is not often seen in movies, so I thought I could make it interesting, and it took 5 years to cover such a large amount of data. “My first work is a crime movie, and I tried to make a fun movie that everyone can enjoy,” he said, asking for interest in the movie.

‘Deadman’ will be released on February 7th.
