[INTERVIEW] 140806 ‘Sea Fog’ Park Yoochun vs ‘Roaring Currents’ Choi Min-sik, Screen War?
It’s cordial between sunbae & hoobae of the same agency privately
Prior to his debut with ‘Sea Fog’, Park Yoochun expressed his gratitude at Choi Min-sik’s consolation.
Park Yoochun acting as the youngest sailor Dong-shik in ‘Sea Fog’ mentioned about Choi Min-sik, who is his senior from same agency and will be competing against him with ‘Roaring Currents’, in an interview conducted in a cafe of Samcheong-dong,Seoul on August 6.
Of the South Korean films –that pumped over 100 million wons into each its production costs– releasing around the same time, the so-named 2-lettered masterpieces are ‘Kundo'(‘군도’), ‘Roaring Currents'(‘명량’), ‘Pirates'(‘해적’) and ‘Sea Fog'(‘해무’). Among these, Choi Min-sik acted as Admiral Yi Sun-sin in ‘Roaring Currents’.
In a question about this, Park Yoochun disclosed, “There is no sense of competition” and “‘Sea Fog’ itself is really good, is said to be a good movie and I have my own story to tell, obviously. There’s no greed; and if one does well, then why can’t we each other both do well”.
When asked “What was Choi Min-sik’s advice?”, he recalled, “When I was filming about halfway of ‘Sea Fog’, I had met Min-sik-ie hyung-nim at the year-end party, and was asked ‘How far have you filmed?’. I replied, ‘I’ve filmed about halfway’. He said jokingly, ‘It’s enough already. That’s enough now'” and “gave me a glass of liquor to console me over knowing what it’s like having filming at sea and how difficult filming at sea is”.
Park Yoochun added, “It was really nice. There were really warm-hearted people and their words helped” and “Also when there was ‘Face Reader’ VIP premiere, Min-sik-ie hyung-nim had said ‘You will have a hard time right from your first movie. It is not an easy piece of work’. He told me that he had almost killed himself while shooting ‘Roaring Currents’, too”.
