Film Festival

Press Conference (Busan International Film Festival)


Press conference took place after a press screening of "Always" at the 2011 Busan International Film Festival on October 6, 2011. Appearing as speakers are the movie's director Song Il-Gon, lead actress Han Hyo-Joo and lead actor So Ji-Sub . AsianWiki editor Ki Mun was there and transcribed/translated the session.

  • Song Il-Gon (director) - I feel nervous because this movie is being shown for the first time and I'm curious how people will react. Me, So Ji-Sub, Han Hyo-Joo and all the staff members tried to make this movie with all of our hearts. I'm honored to show this movie here.
  • Han Hyo-Joo (actress) - Hello, I'm Han Hyo-Joo who played Jung-Hwa in the movie. I'm also nervous since this movie is being shown for the first time. We made this movie with all of our hearts, so hopefully the public will like the movie.
  • So Ji-Sub (actor) - Hello, I'm So Ji-Sub who played Cheol-Min in the movie. I just watched the movie for the first time, so I'm still trying to get over the emotions. I'm curious what people will think about after the movie. I think our movie is a classic, heart-breaking movie, but also a very warm movie. Thank you.

  • Press Question - To the director, this movie seems different from your previous movies. When you made this movie what things did you focus on?
  • Song Il-Gon (director) - It took one week to write down the original script, but after that, I wanted to make the movie a love story with a city backdrop. The idea for the film started from Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights." Charlie Chaplin loves a blind woman and would do anything for her. The idea started from that. It's one of my favorite movies. The background of the movie is 2010 in Seoul. A man loves a woman and sacrifice himself for her. A woman waits for him sincerely and loves him deeply. The movie is very classic and a simple story which has been made in various forms for a long time, so I cared most about the characters. How the main characters Ha Jung-Hwa and Jang Cheol-Min move the audience. This movie relies on these 2 characters a lot. They (at least one of them) appear in every scene in the movie. Their emotions are the basis for the movie - past, present and future. The most important thing was to contain the most sincere emotions in every scene.

  • Press Question - This movie is the opening film for the Busan International Film Festival and the first movie shown at the newly opened Busan Cinema Center. How do you feel about that?
  • Song Il-Gon (director) - Our team came here yesterday and we were surprised. I think the Busan Cinema Center is an important place - a new symbol for Korean cinema history. I am honored "Always" is the first film shown here.
  • Han Hyo-Joo (actress) - I'm honored and excited to show the movie here to the large group of press members gathered here. On the other hand, I do feel more nervous and responsible.
  • So Ji-Sub (actor) - I'm also honored, but at the same time feel even more burdened because of that. I'll try to enjoy the moment.

  • Press Question - I'm thankful I watched a romance film that I could shed tears with and at a time when there's not a lot of romance in films. Is the ending supposed to be a happy ending? While shooting, how did So Ji-Sub and Han Hyo-Joo empathize with their characters?
  • Song Il-Gon (director) - From the beginning, the movie was set for a happy ending. Like So Ji-Sub mentioned, I want to make a film which makes people feel warm. I thought the most important part was to make it fit as a contemporary film and have the proper emotions for the present day. From the ending scene I built the screenplay.
  • So Ji-Sub (actor) - Before playing Jang Cheol-Min I talked to director Song Il-Gon. How to play a person in love with a blind woman. After some thought I came to conclusion that love doesn't have any particular reasons. I did find it difficult to maintain the emotions for Jang Cheol-Min.
  • Han Hyo-Joo (actress) - It was difficult for me to express. Jung-Hwa went through a difficult past. Under this situation, it's more difficult to be cheerful than in tears. Keep the cheerfulness while being blind ... all these things. It was hard to portray. On the shooting set, Song Il-Gon and So Ji-Sub led and helped me a lot a lot so I thank them.

  • Press Question - To director Song Il-Gon, compared to your previous movies is there anything you found more difficult to make in "Always?"
  • Song Il-Gon (director) - I think I'm still a young director. I debuted early, about 10 years ago. I think I made movies I dreamed about - without restrictions. I think "Always" continues that. I think the movie's style might be different from my past work. Though, I don't think style is particularly important. More important is Cheol-Min and Jung-Hwa's relationship & how their simple love story can reverberate with the audience. I think style can differ according to content.

  • Press Question - 1.) For Han Hyo-Joo. What was the most difficult thing you did for the melodramatic parts and performing as a blind woman? Also, what were some major differences between your past bright & cheerful characters from TV dramas and this movie? 2.) For So Ji-Sub. This is the first time you performed in a melodrama. What do you want to show most from your acting? Movie also contains action scenes and you getting beat-up. Was that difficult?
  • Han Hyo-Joo (actress) - Acting as a blind person was more difficult than I imagined. It was very difficult to portray someone unable to see when I can see. Small mistakes and people wouldn't find my performance believable. I worried about that. As time passed I became more comfortable in my role. I felt happy. Compared to my previous roles, Jung-Hwa is more of a woman. She is in love. In my prior TV drama roles they were also in love, but that love included the family. This movie deals with a love relationship with one person from beginning to end.
  • So Ji-Sub (actor) - I think acting for action films and melodramas is the same, but I realized how difficult it is to perform in a melodrama movie. For TV dramas, you maintain certain emotions for a short period, but for this movie the emotions stayed for the entire film. Doing action scenes became harder for me. One month prior to filming the movie, I practiced for the action scenes and, in the process, injured ligaments in both of my wrists. But I'm fine now.

  • Press Question - You (Song Il-Gon) mentioned you were inspired by the movie "City Lights" by Charlie Chaplin. Compare your film to "City Lights" and how satisfied are you with the results. Also what are some differences between the two films?
  • Song Il-Gon (director) - "Always" is different from "City Lights." "City Lights" is a movie I admire. I wanted to make a love story between a man and a woman. Charlie Chaplin is one of the directors that I respect the most, so it's impossible to compare to his movie "City Lights." I'm not sure how satisfied I am with "Always." I want to hear what people think about the movie. There are some parts that as a director I'm not satisfied with. Time, editing and ... but I can say So Ji-Sub, Han Hyo-Joo and the staff did their best. The movie's storyline is simple, but the emotional line is very important.
  • So Ji-Sub (actor) - I like the scene where I am working out. As an actor, I have never been satisfied with my acting.
  • Han Hyo-Joo (actress) - As an actress, it is difficult to be satisfied with my own acting. I like the kissing scene the most. I felt the kiss scene come out so beautifully.

  • Press Question - In the movie, there are some sex scenes. Did you have to prepare for the sex scene beforehand and were there NG (not good) shots for that scene?
  • Han Hyo-Joo (actress) - That's quite a provocative question. There wasn't any preparation. The director focused on the emotional feelings between two people. Shooting schedule took place according to the story's timeline. Before the bed scene we had a kiss scene. I didn't have any awkward feelings or difficulties. And no NG.

  • Press Question - Tell us what were good things about working with each other.
  • So Ji-Sub (actor) - Before the movie, I had an impression from TV that Han Hyo-Joo had a bright and cute character. On the shooting set, I saw her acting for the first time. She is quite cautious and had deep thoughts about acting, especially when compared to her age. I got along well with her.
  • Han Hyo-Joo (actress) - I'm honored to have worked with So Ji-Sub. On the shooting set he led me and took good care of me. Even though he was in a difficult position, he didn't show it. I hope to pick up that trait.

kistine The best drama I've ever watch my entire life .. Can feel the emotions .. Heart wrenching tear dropping so touching movie ... I'm not really into dramas but ....oh wow ... The movie is a total blast! So ji sub and Han hyo joo did a good job in their acting ... Directers and writer did a big masterpiece e

Mya Yaay! Very happy I just saw this movie. So Ji-Sub babbayy!! I didn't know your acting has such range. I've only watched you in Master's Sun. So I went out and checked up your other stuff. This was moving. You blew me away with you emotions showing thru and you played off well with the beautiful Han Hyo-Jo. The cornea transplant, the coincidental history yeah yeah they've been overused in K-dramas but who cares! I'm easy to please lol Grrreat movie!!

Yunus she said she got married !! with who ?

Joyce Yagoda The title confused me. I saw a Spielberg movie about 25 years ago called ALWAYS. Spielberg's remake of another movie with his own twist of course. The one I saw was airplane acrobatics gone wrong. The pilot is killed his spirit becomes involved mentoring a new pilot, who becomes involved with the woman the old pilot once loved. One pilot dead, one alive both with the same woman. Spielberg is very intense. He is into the spiritual thing, also. He is very good with child actors. He is very fatherly. I love Stephen's work. One of his ex wives said, these story lines just roll out of his mouth. He quit college and told his parents, college had nothing to offer him. He was right.

James Bolotin I loved this movie waiting for Han Hyo-Joo to do another drama.

Mia The part where Han Hyo Joo was crying out loud emotionally, upon realising its him that she was longing for... That single part alone brings me to uncontrollable tears. Thumbs up for such a great movie!

ace As a rule I'm not a fan of many of the tropes that are rife in Korean cinema. The overuse of coincidences. The illnesses. Memory losses. Unbelievable and unrealistic love triangles. Horrible pain & problems that knowingly can be avoided at any time by just communicating the barest amount of info to someone but instead they hem and haw and then only blurt it out stupidly and in over-dramatic fashion when it is supposedly too late etc.

A lot of people rely upon those tropes. They are a comfort to the viewer. Not to me. But I fully understand others like it. And that is great. It really is.

So I was not a fan of the coincidental back story. But even so, what makes this good for me is how simple the relationship is.

Anyway, while this movie had tropes galore in it that I'm not a fan of, it still really worked for me. Mainly because of the simple exchanges of dialogues, for the simple way the characters were written and above all the performance of Han Hyo-Joo. So Ji-Sub was great too but for my money it was her that sold it. Setting aside her obvious physical charms, it was her expressions, her body language and her tone of voice. The scenes at the end when the penny drops and she finally understands are eye-wateringly good. I know this type of scene is bread and butter to Korean actresses but somehow she made it feel better to me, Less acting and more reacting.

Visually it is pretty decent. Not visually impressive in the way Mother or Oldboy etc was but very decent. No distractions or trying to be too clever. All-in-all, I recommend it.

emilia tokes @WeComeInPeace - thank you for the song title :D

and this movie is just so beautiful and poetic !

joy I would say the scriptwriter did his her job very well!!! next the cinematographer for the shot scene view angle everything... I wonder how so ji sub can really imbided the character he's so great in showing meek and mild after going through in prison. he really work hard in his craft!!! I salute you!!

ceejay I congradulate the Song -II Gon for a brilliant & awesome script writing and making this movie. Being affiliated in the us film industry is not easy. For Song-II Gon to penentrate such diversity & difficult movie is a mild stone for Korean culture. Son Ji-Sub & Han Hyo-Joo did a brilliant job in their acting "congradulation". Whatever flaw I saw in the making of the movie, it may be lighting etc..I discraded it. Just because the whole senerio of this movie made sense and it protray the whole cause of it. Its' totally different from all the dramas that I've seen..Thank you for Entertaining us". I look forward to watching Song-II Gon movie again and both brilliant Actor & Actress.

Christine This, for me, is the best korean movie that i've watched so far (and I have already watched a lot)... I just love the chemistry between the actors and OMG, the story really got into me, especially the ending. And just to show how much I love this movie, well i've already watched this movie morethan 20times!!! Oppa!!!

tuesday I've watched this movie number of times love it, love it! Its the best romance movie I've seen so far so brilliant. Han Hyo Joo and So Ji Sub are magnificent, amazing, surreal best performance. unforgettable tearjerker love story with a lovely ending!

Clarkdale44 Probably the best romance movie i have ever seen in my entire lifetime...

Bouba One of my favorite movies ever !!!! I watched 3 times , & I replay many scenes several times. I love So Ji-Sub. He is the reason I started watching korean movies. This movie is great: love, romance, fights, melodrama ... When Jung-Hwa realizes that the man the dog followed is in fact Cheol-Min & she started searching the streets for him then fell down crying her heart out, i was sobbing too !!! So moving !

joe@penang One of the best love stories of all time . I simply love every single moment of the movie.

MJ it is indeed a heart warming and a very good story,,. you will fall in love with the leading characters. great job!

elle One of the best ..definitely worth watching ..!! love SJS and HHJ..

Yuriy Before you swallow this movie you should have a good chew on it. Its about a man who behaves like a Man and woman who behaves like a Woman.

mila actually this movie is so boring.... poor acting of the two leads so i wont recommend watching this movie

Byron Loved this movie, is there any other movies similar to this?

Amit I watched this movie last Night....Its amazing....Its great Story....I like the acting of both actors. I really thanked to all member of this movie who make such kind of movie for us. Once again, Thank you very much.

Zay This is the best movie I have ever watched.

trunks3 Just finished watching, really a great movie, the acting was amazing, the love story really beautiful still wiping the tears out of my face...thumbs up

nidz this a very touching movie ever. i love to watch dis in how many times

kezia i found that the boxing place at Jisub's final fight is similar (or same) with the Batman The Dark Night Rises fight place too. Anyone has watched both? maybe im not the one. Maybe it were really the same place? in Thai?

Icyvirgorox I'm so happy I get to watch this movie through YouTube. This is my first time watching SJS's acting and I must say both SJS and HHJ did a really great job in portraying the characters. The story is simple but it's the development of feelings of both leads that captured my attention and the way the actors bring out the emotions of the characters. I can really feel their love and sorrow. Simply amazing!

Kcatie The movie is very touching. I felt the warmt of being in love. The lead actors are believable. I so love the movie. No matter how many times you watch it, you will still feel the same emotions the first time you watched it. Kudos to all the people behind this beautiful movie.

florjay best movie ever, i love it...

Kyeu The best, soo cutee T.T!!

Joanna Great movie! Beautiful story, cried at the end

tony I like this movie a lot cheol min he do everything for her , remind me the song I like from Adam Bryan everything I do (do it for you ) for both of characters in the movie . Beside So Ji Sub and Han hyn joo they very pro put a lot off thought in the characters

tony This movie never get bored (always ) the best movie I ever watch, I live in us they dont have many asian movie tranlation to (eng sub) event in nexflet they dont have this movie .But lucky accident I watch in YouTube . Love So Ji Sub and Han Hyn joo they both look good together

Chirag Shah To all the IDIOTS who say that this is copied from Lafangey Parindey, a pathetic bollywood flick, the only similarity is that the woman is blind...THIS film (Always) is more of a tragedy and serious flick while Lafanger Parindey is about a blind lady who wants to participate in a show and SKATE....What similarities??? I'm Indian and ashamed to see a bunch of stupid idiots from my country making such RIDICULOUS claims without even watching "ALWAYS"....They see ONE similarity and they jump to conclusion...Not to mention, Lafangey Parindey isn't even good while "always" is an EMOTIONALLY POWERFUL film dealing with tragic elements....Stupid illiterate morons need to shut the hell up!

Rosa Tapeta watch the movei 3 times i loved it....and still watching it the story line is well scripted...applause to the crews. Thank you for a lovely story

Jolens The movie is very touching.i really cried alot.i shared this movie to my friends, coz i want them to watch it too.very good.really..:-D han hyo Joo,so pretty !

justs vin i'm so very love it watch this movie... especially to Han Hyo-Joo, she is so beautiful and have good talent acting... and i like too ost always, very good soundtrack... so excelent this movie...

maricon Supeeeerrrrrr nice movie.... Watched this on youtube lots of times already. HHJ and SJS were really great...

Lydia Gamara I am hoping this movie will be shown also in Philippine theaters.

Anna Nguyen Aaaaaaaaaaawesome!!!!!!!! Romantic!!!!! Meaningful and lovely!!!!!!!!! It's really worth watching. It made me cry a lot at the end of the movie. So Ji Sub is always that attractive, like in "Sorry i love you" n Han Hyo Joo is so beautiful.

Ar.s the song is I can feel you - Bang Joon Suk

cuaks hello, did anyone know what is the singer/band name and song title of the opening song when SJS picking up water galoons? I'll be thankfull ..

cuaks hey I like this movie so much, can ANYONE tell me who is the singer / band or the tittle of the first song at the opening when SJS picking up a water galoons ? thx I'll be pleased ..

Mason TOTALLY WORTH TO WATCH Im a big fan of HHJ. This is my first time to see her act with more mature role. I really love her acting. For the storyline, viewers should expect wat's gonna happen from trailer, they will fall in 'LOVE' and 'SACRIFICE' for each other. It still great to see the different elements and the scenes of the movies. Gloomy scene mix with beautiful landscape. Totally luv the two main characters. So Ji Sub is like a boss, tough and strange, but in his heart, there is a warm heart feeling that lives inside of him.

The downside is the bed scene, Han Hyo Joo AHHHH!!! You really break my heart <33333

Btw, plagiarism? All the love elements come from Shakespeare, so people should rather they say all movies copy Shakespeare instead x.x..........

kob In the movie, what concert they see ? the song is good. plese tell me.

gal In reply to smileyme's post, dont criticize Han hyo joo if u think u can act better than her.

zarima USA i finished watching it,,, and am really impressed and a heartwarming movie,,,, and its nice and it feels good that the ending is a HAPPY ONE ,,,, KUDDOS to all the people behind,,

geeK A good and enjoyable film. An interesting mainstream offering from Song Il-gon. It is a story about love and it's straightforward,and it worked because of the main leads. Excellent performances especially from Han Hyo-joo, but I would have preferred it if they had explored more of Jung-hwa's struggles, an orphan slowly losing her vision in her backstory, they did satisfactorily so for Cheol-min's road-to-redemption story. I love the director's long and silent shots. Overall, I would recommend "Always" as there is something refreshing about it and it is a bit different than your average Korean melodrama.

YUIan26 super Much Watch Film!!

Excellent Acting to So Ji-Sub as well as Han Hyo-Joo..

Very dramatic film.. So sad..

but at least it has a Good Ending..

smileyme love so ji sub in this movie he is doing good job portraying Cheol-min character but I'm so disattisfied with Han Hyo Joo's acting she is so NOT naturAL.

I hate her!!

Neri i ♥ this MOVIE!!!

must watch :P

fang does anyone knows,what songs which played as a backsound in the opening scene,when SJS took some galoon to the office..i like to hear that song..but,i can't find who sings the song,n what the title of the song..anyone can help me?

st0rmgust watched this movie & just want to say.. SJS is really good here. HHJ also good too. the movie is a "Must Watch" I think.. 4 1/2 half star of five :D

NewKDramaAddict Such a beautiful story with a beautiful ending! So Ji-Sub never disappoints! Han Hyo-Joo, I loved in Shining Inheritance. This is well worth the watch!!

zhA I spend a lot of tears to see this film. highly recommended for u all to watch :) :)

Luki The movie was really good!! SJS & HHJ's acting are really convincing xD I think the storyline would better suit a drama though, since there's just too many things happening one after another... nonetheless, awesome movie!!! I didn't get bored at all!!

arslan khan i want to know the name of the song which is played at the end of the movie which is something like DONT GO I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR U....

deny It was good and interesting. I adore City lights but this movie was simplyer but well done- like a reverance to original.And ofcourse very korean in reveal conections between caracters – this is not this way in Chaplin’s movie. Something about karma – I think it’s the reason. I finaly had a chance to watch this So Ji Sub. I had the feeling in some scenes That his eyes are like of an alien IT.Ha-ha.

ran great job Han Hyo-Joo


Christy Is this movie will be show in Indonesia??I doubt..pleaseeee,make it be show in indonesia..I trust the indonesian will be love this movie so much,especially bcos indonesia loves melodrama..really..and indonesia always loves korean dramas especially the actor and the actress

Christy It will be a great this a series drama?or this is kind of cinema movie?is there anyone could tell me?

Jan I'm really excited about this show. I can conclude that I grew up with the korean hype especially Han Hyo Joo because she ranks as my favourite actress. I have followed her in her splendid acting in Dong Yi, Heaven's postman, Shining Inheritance, Spring Waltz and Ride Away. What I can say for sure is that she moves audiences with her down-to-earth and bubbly personality. She is also very good in acting melodrama such as the one in Spring Waltz. As for Dong Yi, we see a very different side of her. Just today, I read from allkpop that she is going to star in another "dong-yi" sitecom. I have never followed the male actor before but have read what Ryan Gosling who starred in The Notebook; commented on the premiere of this movie, Always or also known as Only You. He said that Hyo Joo acting is very real and moves audiences to tears. And, that is exactly what I feel about her. Finally, I can't wait till this is shown in Singapore #avid fan of HYO JOO

mandy OMG!!! i so want to watch this.... love love love.....

TYJY This is definitely not plargarized, whats Lafngey Parindey? never heard of it in my life

Kirapachi I really wanna watch this so bad!

adele will this show be shown in Singapore? :(

Kera I knew this movie because Alex & Horan fill in for the OST.....hope it's good

myjere i think those who wants to argue about plagiarism should just keep quiet instead of spoiling the whole movie , thank you for your cooperation .

myjere wow so exciting

David Toms Martian Most of the Good Flims that comes out of Hollywood or Bollywood has been copy many times over and over again in a different titles and actors and actress but the story seem the same. Every directors, actors and actress think differently..example the orginal director, actors and actress direct and acted accordingly to the scrib of the movie but it turn not so what then new director and actors.actress try their ways of directing and acting for that original movies then what happened it was it was a the original Robin Hood... If Robin Hood was to be played in Bollywood directed by Indian Director,And Indian Actor/Actress you think what will happened...The world is the stage and all it people are actors or actress each play its own parts of which the story never end...

Anne Here's what I have to say about the plagiarism issue.

In my eyes, any type of plagiarism is wrong. It's unethical and shameful to claim someone's hard work and creativity as your own. I am an Indian and I have watched a multitude of Bollywood films for years. I can confidently claim that the level of film-making in Bollywood is generally of a very low standard. More than 90% of the films that come out of Bollywood (including the ones that succeed commercially) are difficult to sit through, if you have half a brain.

Bollywood has been plagiarizing for a long time. Copying Hollywood has been a very popular trend with the makers of Hindi films. If I were to make a list of the number of films plagiarized, the number would surely cross a hundred. With the influx of numerous cable channels & multiplex theaters, the Indian audience is more acquainted with Hollywood nowadays. Hence, these days, the makers choose to plagiarize foreign movies. Korean movies have not been spared from this hideous habit either. "A Bittersweet Life" & "My Sassy Girl" are two South Korean films that come to mind in this regard. Hence it can be concluded that when it comes to plagiarism, Bollywood ranks high.

However, this doesn't give anyone the right to plagiarize from Bollywood. It's still unethical. You can't feel victorious over the fact that you've "stolen from the biggest stealer". Plagiarism has been & shall always be considered stealing.

Now, if we talk about this film, the plot here clearly states "story of an ex-boxer and a woman who is losing her eyesight". The Bollywood film "Lafangey Parindey", released in 2010, is also about an ex-boxer & a women who has recently lost her eyesight. This could be coincidence. One must keep in mind that "Lafangey Parindey" itself was 'inspired' by one old Hollywood film about a blind skater, named "Ice Castles".

When I saw the plot of this film here, the first thing that came to my mind was "Lafangey Parindey". Now, even though the plot of both the films sound suspiciously similar, I am willing to wait for more information about this film. At this point of time, it's immature to conclude anything about this film being a 'copy'.

Let's wait for the release. Then we'll all know whether or not our suspicions hold any ground.

TOK No. You are wrong. This is different and Original. You can't be such idiot to say that this one copied Bollywood without even watching this. The plot is way different. If anyone thinks this one copied BW, then BW copied 1978 American movie and 1999 Tamil Film according to Wiki. Anyway, this one has two Great actors and since it's Korean film, this must be good at least.

lisa They copied the storyline of the bollywood film Lafangey Parindey...

britjust ha cn't wait...................!!!! i hope it's really jjang,,,[i have high expectition]

Sandy Omg !!!!!! Im soo excited for this film !! kinda wish it was a drama! lol
