“Confession” upgraded more tightly and solidly through the faces and mouths of “K-great actors” and visited the audience in new clothes.
On the afternoon of Oct 18th, a press preview and press conference for the movie “Confession” was held at Lotte Cinema Konkuk University Entrance in Jayang-dong, Gwangjin-gu, Seoul. Director Yoon Jong-seok, actors So Ji-sub, Kim Yun-jin and Nana attended the event.
Based on Oriol Paulo’s 2016 Spanish film “The Invisible Guest”, “Confession” depicts a story about a man who has been pointed out as the culprit of a locked-room murder and his lawyer approaching the truth.
On this day, director Yoon Jong-seok said, “The original itself is so famous. It’s an icon of twisted film representing Spain. That part was very burdensome. I was worried about what people would think when I said I was going to remake this work.”
Actors were also burdened with the well-made original work. So Ji-sub shared, “There was great pressure, but on the contrary, I tried to pay attention to a new approach to the character without caring about the original.” Kim Yun-jin expressed her thoughts, “The sentiment was Koreanized in the process of adaptation. After watching, I felt like it’s a different movie not related to the original.” Nana said, “I was burdened by the original’s strong and impactful character, but I wanted to express a different character by finding something that only I could do using the color I had. I tried to concentrate and prepare harder.”
“Confession” starring So Ji-sub, Kim Yun-jin, Nana, Choi Kwang-il is director Yoon Jong-seok’s first commercial feature film. It will be released on Oct 26th.
