On the morning of the 19th, an interview with director Kang Je-gyu of the movie ‘1947 Boston’ was held at a cafe in Gangnam-gu, Seoul. ‘1947 Boston’ is a story about the challenges and thrilling journey of marathon runners to participate in international competitions wearing the Taegeuk symbol for the first time after liberation in 1947. Director Kang Je-gyu of ‘Shiri’ and ‘Taegukgi’ took the megaphone.

On this day, director Kang Je-gyu mentioned Ha Jung-woo, the protagonist of ‘1947 Boston.’ Regarding Ha Jung-woo, who likes to walk, Director Kang said, “Ha Jung-woo doesn’t just walk at travel destinations. “He usually walks to meetings,” he said.

Director Kang said, “I asked him if he would bump into people when he walked downtown, and he said he walked so fast that he didn’t bump into people.” He continued, “When we were just about to start filming ‘1947 Boston,’ (Ha Jung-woo) injured his knee, so it was a bit difficult. “There are no running scenes in the play, but there were originally running scenes as well,” he said. “I could walk on flat ground, but I couldn’t climb stairs. Of course, he got better about halfway through filming,” he said.

The movie ‘1947 Boston’ will be released on the 27th.
