“Intruder” is a mystery thriller starring Song Ji Hyo as Yoo Jin, a woman who returns to her family after she disappeared 25 years ago. Kim Moo Yeol Stars like Seo Jin, her older brother, who is slowly becoming suspicious of his long-lost sister.
During a recent interview, Son Won Pyung said that the film set was an entertaining and friendly environment. She especially thanked Kim Moo Yeol for this and remembered: “He played around and pretended to be others until the start of the shoot, but as soon as the shoot started, he immersed himself [in his role]. Then, [when shooting ended]he would jump straight out of the character. He said it was easier to act if they parted from their roles in this way. Song Ji Hyo was the same. It was wonderful.”
The director went on to say that she was very impressed with Song Ji Hyo’s acting. The actress is known for “Running ManAnd she mainly appeared in romantic comedies. “Intruder” marks her first thriller in 17 years since her role in the 2003 horror film “Whispering Corridors: Wishing Stairs”.
Son Won Pyung said: “I don’t watch TV very often, so I don’t watch” Running Man “every week. (Song Ji Hyo) made her debut at the age of 20 in” Whispering Corridors: Wishing Stairs “, and her picture in I especially noticed this film. Actually, it felt strange and unfamiliar to me to see her so bright and happy on TV. She is an actress who played in “Whispering Corridors: Wishing Stairs” when she was young shady facade and a strange atmosphere: these are ingredients that are available to her. They are only overshadowed by her vaudeville image. I wanted to get this page out of her. Didn’t you see a bit of it in the film “New World”? I thought it would be a new pleasure to show this side of her to the audience. I think she was also very motivated. I was really happy when Jihyo was occupied [in the film]. ”
The director continued: “Actually, the story is mostly led by Seo Jin. Yoo Jin dominates the whole atmosphere, but doesn’t appear all the time. It would not have been easy [for her] knowing when and where it needs to change, or how visibly it should express those changes. So we had a lot of discussions [about those things]. ”
At the film’s press conference, Song Ji Hyo expressed regret that her acting performance was lacking, but Son Won Pyung disagreed. The director said: “She is an actress with a lot of passion and a constant desire to do better. That’s why she feels that way. I personally want to praise Song Ji Hyo for his great work. She did it so well. It’s understandable that she regretted it as an actress, but I loved it [her acting]. She very much doubted herself on the set and would ask me [after filming a scene]”Did you really want that?” I said yes. So I want to thank her. “
Son Won Pyung added, “I hope that Song Ji Hyo’s image can be expanded with” Intruder “to give her the opportunity to show a wider variety of images and pages [to herself] in the future.”
