In addition, the crew members’ appearances as well as their wardrobe completely reminds us of real fishermen, birthed from the added fervor and endless research of the make-up team. ‘Sea Fog’’s costumer director Choi Seyeon disclosed about the constant efforts in perfecting the fishermen look completely: “By airlifting in clothes worn by actual crew members from the sea coast, some pieces [of clothing] were used and the rest were kept to make use of reality. The ground-in dirt, sweat, smell, and etc. that the crew members must always maintain; we were worried about how to express these sensations with the color, texture or pattern. We conducted test shots with several fittings for the balance of being on the boat and on its deck; and selected clothes that will be able to project each characters’ personalities”.
Acting as youngest crew member ‘Dong-shik’, Park Yuchun revealed a behind-the-story from filming, “I had come out from changing my clothes during the first fitting, all the staff who were there burst out loud, saying ‘Being a sailor is beyond Yuchunnie’s control’”.
Completed with the production crew’s efforts to revive reality like it is and the actors’ passion in their flawless transformation into fishermen, ‘Sea Fog’ will present overwhelming tension to the audience with its unpredictable circumstances and extreme plot line; along with an unknown ‘sea fog’ to which they cannot see what’s in front of themselves, in the latter half of the movie. It opens on August 13.
