If you’re curious ask – relay Q&A video

Choi Minho’s side

Minho: “Hello I’m Choi Minho who plays Kim Cheol Jin, a special police force core member.”

Q: There are many actors cast (in this film), are there any actors who are different than you expected?

Minho: “Actors who are different than I expected… Well I think everyone was just like I imagined so… there’s really not any one who I found different. But because of Kim Mu-Yeol’s character, he’s not like this usually but on set when the camera was rolling he was a bit.. I felt kind of creeped out. The others didn’t seem to have any aspects that were different (from my expectations). I will ask Gang Dong Won a question.”

Ask Gang Dong Won

Minho’s Question: “The armor you wore really suited you well. Is there any fun story that comes to mind from when you wore this armor on set?”

Gang Dong Won: “Wearing the armor, well first of all…“ [Video end]

Press Conference 180718 (Short Translation)

Q: You had action scenes fighting with your bare-hands, did you have any difficulties (with that)?

Han Ye-Ri: “Actually my first scenes with Minho were filmed in the summer and the action scenes were filmed in the winter. Yes, that’s how long it had been since we had met each other. Since it had been so long since we met, I was just really happy to see him before we filmed the action scenes. I remember while we were filming our action scenes that we tried to focus, especially being careful not to hurt each other. I was slightly worried as this was also Minho’s first action scene filmed for the movie, but we were a good match for each other, then, this isn’t my words, but the staff on set all said that it came out really well, and as I kept lightly being thrown around that made me think “Ah this movie is going to turn out really well” and I think I really enjoyed filming these scenes.”

Q: Was this your first action scene, Ms. Han Ye-Ri?

Han Ye-Ri: “For me, well I’ve filmed a few action scenes before, but this was my first hand-to-hand combat action, yes.”

Q: Mr. Choi Minho, please share your experience

(01:15) Minho: “I also remember when I filmed those action scenes how happy I was to see her after a while. And another thing I remember, there was this scene where I lift her up and she was so light. I really felt like I was carrying a feather! And there’s also a scene towards the end where I kind of drag her along and in that scene as well, she was just so light, it’s usually something that’s really difficult to do but since she was so light I was easily able to do it. I hope you all look forward it.”

Han Ye-Ri: “Yes, my name is Feather Han Ye-Ri.” (lol)
