The reason why high school students in K are popular in Godalpa OTT academy


At one time, New York in the U.S. was nicknamed “a regular in disaster movies.” This is because New York, which reigned as the world’s best city, was often used as the background to deal with various disasters in science fiction movies. Therefore, New York became the target of meteorites, and was damaged by tsunamis, and various villains were rampant and used as a place for aliens to invade.

In this era of watching OTT platforms a lot, what would foreigners say to Korean high school students. I think they’ll say, “You’re really good at running,” and “You’re really good at fighting.” That’s what Korean high school students look like in the dramas we’re watching right now.

With the creation of the OTT platform, the definition of so-called “academia” that deals with schools is being rewritten. In the past, it would have been a series of stories about spending ordinary daily lives in the background of school, but now high school students are busy. They are invaded by aliens and attacked by zombie viruses. On the other hand, it can be a stage of revenge or a stage of killers who hide their identity and make a secret promise.

This is the story of Tving’s recently released drama “After-school War Activity.” The drama based on Ha Il-kwon’s webtoon of the same name has been released since the 31st of last month. The plot is that extraterrestrial spheres that suddenly appear in the sky around the world threaten the Earth, and the Korean government decides to recruit high school seniors to prevent them. I don’t think I’ll participate if I just do it, so I apply extra points for the CSAT.

The drama ranked first among all-time TVing works in the paid subscription contribution index, which measures the contribution of consumers who subscribe to watch content immediately after its release. It takes the form of an academy, and we put together a cliché of a war drama dealing with students turning into soldiers, an element of science fiction in which alien life appears

Similar works have increased dramatically recently. It would be good to pick Netflix’s “My School Now,” which was released early last year. It is also based on Joo Dong-geun’s popular webtoon, which mainly deals with the fear and thrill of the unidentified zombie virus spreading around the school and turning into zombies for students. A large number of new actors such as Yoon Chan-young, Park Ji-hoo, Joey-hyun, Yoo In-soo, Ha Seung-ri, Lee Eun-sam, Lee Yoo-mi, and Romon also appeared.

There were also many revenge dramas set in the school. “Weak Hero Class 1,” unveiled on Wave, deals with the growth of Yeon Si-eun (Park Ji-hoon), who has somewhat poor physical ability but is armed with extraordinary head, judgment, and great persistence against the backdrop of school. “Third Person Revenge,” which was released on Disney Plus, also features the main character Ok Chan-mi (Shin Ye-eun) who sought the truth about the death of her twin brother and Ji Soo-heon (Romon), who acts as a revenge, getting involved in the case.

A killer appears in “Final Weapon Alice,” which was released on Watcha. It deals with what happens when highly trained killer Han Winter (Park Se-wan) meets Seo Ye-Yeoreum (Song Gun-hee), who does not feel pain even when she is hit while attending school disguised as an ordinary student.

Among the works scheduled to be released, academy works can be frequently seen. The drama “Hi Cookie,” which has yet to be decided on a platform, will feature Nam Ji-hyun and Choi Hyun-wook. It deals with the desire of the human race and the journey of the female protagonist on an adventure to save her brother in danger when Cookie, who grants her wish, enters an elite high school. The “Running Mate,” which is scheduled to be unveiled on TVing, has a model student protagonist running as a running mate in the election of the school’s student council president to reform his image It dealt with the process of becoming increasingly the core of the election. It combines the characteristics of academy and political literature.

The story of “K-high school students” has become the central theme of the drama because there is no place that collects the characteristics of Korean society more intensively than schools. The educational background society, which is characteristic of Korean society, and the system in which grades determine social class, push students into infinite competition. Students are evaluated in a row for their grades, while the shadows of those who have fallen behind are also deepened. You can’t miss the drama against a backdrop where people’s bare faces are often revealed

In addition, conflicts with older generations who have already built the system are effectively depicted. Adults in “My School Now” adjust, even encourage, and exploit the zombie crisis to their advantage rather than solve it. Adults of “after-school war activities” decide to recruit students who were only studying and put them into burdensome operations like consumables. In the end, there is a self-portrait of a distorted social system through school.

There is also a reason why the number of original webtoon works has increased. Usually, webtoon writers have a relatively short career compared to established cartoonists, and there are many younger generations. It is easy to imagine the background of the school, which gave the artist the strongest impression of his life so far. If you look at the academy industrially, you can use a large number of young newcomers to cast students, which costs less, and you can work on the second half of the work.

Schools are a material that is available all over the world, so they are versatile, but they can also show differences only in Korea. Naturally, the atmosphere of the Korean school system and school is interesting from the perspective of foreigners. This is why schools, abbreviated versions of Korean society, can be so popular in dramas.

In the broadcasting area, it becomes a new genre of experiments and a playground for new actors. In many ways, the story is a genre that gains weight and strengthens the base. What other schools, students’ stories will captivate viewers with intensity, and the 2023 academy’s clock is busy

Ahn Jae-hong

Actor Ahn Jae-hong told the story of becoming a victory fairy.

Actor Ahn Jae-hong’s interview was held in the movie “Rebound” (director Jang Hang-joon) at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Seoul, on the morning of the 29th.

“Rebound” depicts a miraculous story of eight days in which a new coach and six players of the weakest basketball team, which no one paid attention to, ran nonstop at the 2012 National High School Basketball Tournament.

Ahn Jae-hong played Kang Yang-hyun, who became a public service worker after moving to and from the second division, leaving behind his brilliant career as a high school basketball MVP.

“When I first received the script, the word basketball touched me more than the material of basketball and the word sports,” he said. “When I received the script, I felt that basketball was not as popular as before at some point.” “I thought it was a sport that became like a memory after experiencing the craze of basketball party in the generations who grew up watching slam dunk on the playground where we were enthusiastic in the past,” he said.

“It was even more so because I was offered when I didn’t know ‘The First Slam Dunk’ at the time,” he said. I liked that it was a story about finding the heat. Rather than showing anything as a sports movie, I was more touched by what I loved, what I liked, and what we liked to die because we were crazy,” he said, explaining why he chose the movie.

“I went to a lot of intuition while preparing for the work. I went to SK games a lot because I wanted to learn the sense of realism. As soon as I got the script, it was basketball season, and I went to the stadium where I could go quickly. I won every time I went. How many consecutive wins did he make. “I enjoyed watching it because I went and won,” he said, revealing the story of becoming a ‘victory fairy’.

He also said, “I looked at the coach’s seat carefully. However, in playing coach Kang, I thought that seeing coach Jeon Hee-chul could bring much. Coach Jeon Hee-chul had an image like Yongsan High School coach played by actor Jang Hyun-sung, and he felt like a cool coach in a falling suit. “I think I enjoyed basketball more because my image was the opposite of coach Kang Yang-hyun,” he said.

“Rebound” will be released on April 5.

In addition, director Jay Song, who has been active as a producer in a number of popular films such as “The Neighborhood People” and “Wonderful Ghost,” caught a megaphone following “Yeouido” and “Nightmare,” combining mysteries with the original’s detailed psychological description to create a dense thriller.

Actor Oh Dal-soo, who is still showing off his strong position with his role-free luxury acting from Disney+ original series “Casino” to “Veteran 2,” will play Jeong-in, a philosophy professor who started his dream of rural life after retirement, with excellent digestion.

On top of that, Jang Young-nam, who recently exudes a strong presence through the drama “One Hit Scandal,” is enthusiastic as Hyun-sook, wife of “Jeong-in,” signaling that he will once again fill the play with deep acting skills, drawing expectations from the audience. In addition, actor Kim Hong-pa, who crosses the screen with his performances such as “Casino,” “Romantic Doctor Kim Sa-bu,” “Duke,” and “Malmoi,” will break up into a subtle psychological battle with actor Oh Dal-soo as a mysterious neighbor, Yuknam.

The mystery thriller “4 p.m.,” which is unique to its sharp insight into human nature, will visit domestic audiences in the second half of 2023.

The First Slam Dunk

The movie “The First Slam Dunk” reached the top of the box office, breaking the highest opening score of the Japanese box office in Japan.

On the first day of its release in Japan, “The First SlamDunk” attracted 460,000 viewers and topped the overall box office. It achieved a cumulative 840,000 viewers in two days on the first weekend after its release.

“The First SlamDunk” is a movie about the dreams and passion of the five basketball players of Buksan High School who dream of winning the national championship. It is a theatrical version of “Slam Dunk” (1990-1996), which has surpassed 120 million copies in circulation.

Ko Kyung-pyo plays the role of the murderer.”You said you’d lose weight, but gain more weight”

Ko Kyung-pyo

Takashi Miike, director of “Connect,” mentioned the presence of Ko Kyung-pyo, who appears as a serial killer in the play.

Director Takashi Miike told various stories in an interview with Disney Plus (Disney+) original “Connect” held at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul on the morning of the 6th.

“Connect” is a drama that tells the story of a new human being with a non-die body, “Connect,” who knows that his eyes were kidnapped by organ trafficking organizations and then transplanted into a serial killer who made Korea noisy.

In “Connect,” Ko played the role of Oh Jin-seop, a serial killer who received Connect’s eyes.

Jin-seop is a perfect colleague and team leader in the company, but inside he is a character who makes a series of dead body art that makes Korea noisy with strange and dark aspects that others cannot even imagine.

Coach Takashi Miike told Ko Kyung-pyo’s casting process and said, “Ko Kyung-pyo is a devil,” giving laughter to the scene.

Earlier, director Takashi Miike told a press conference for “Connect” held the previous day, “I thought it fit well with the killer’s acting after seeing him smile even though he was late for the first meeting.”

Coach Takashi Miike continued, “To say I’m the devil, I mean I’m a person with a lot of attractive charms,” smiling, “And even if I do something wrong, I can easily forgive, and I think I’ll have to forgive quickly.”

“At the first meeting, Ko Kyung-pyo was 30 minutes late, and I had seen all the slim-looking pictures before. But what I saw was that he was fat, and he came and said with a smile, “I failed my diet.” He was intrigued by the appearance of not trying to hide himself at all. I thought, “This person is funny,” and I became a fan. He expressed his affection, saying, “I personally like him.”

Director Takashi Miike also said, “In fact, when we first met, Ko Kyung-pyo said he would lose more weight before filming. But he actually appeared after gaining more weight,” he said, causing laughter at the scene.

“At that time, he said with a cute smile, ‘I failed my diet,’ and I thought it was good visually because the original webtoon had a slim psychopath image, but I also thought that it was the power of psychopaths to attract people while smiling like this.” “So I thought it would be nice to show this image as it is,” he said.

He also said it was interesting to watch the meeting between Jung Hae-in and Ko Kyung-pyo through “Connect.”

Director Takashi Miike said, “I actually didn’t know which actors were popular in Korea. When I asked Jung Hae-in, who was cast first, Ko Kyung-pyo, he said he liked Ko Kyung-pyo and wanted to act together. The two are actually close, but they are rivals in the drama. Being in a drama together can be a (positive) battle between each other as actors. He said, “I thought it could be an opportunity to rise together.”

He also said, “It’s my first attempt at a Korean work, and I expected a chemical reaction that harmonized with it. There is a great pleasure in sharing the results with various talented people. While watching the monitor, I filmed it with joy as if I were watching a Korean Wave drama,” he expressed satisfaction.

Indiana Jones

Harrison Ford in his 80s and Indiana Jones in his 40s…

Indiana Jones

American actor Harrison Ford, who is in his 80s, will play Dr. Jones in his 40s and 60s in the new film “Indiana Jones,” which will be released next year. The British film magazine Empire reported on the 24th that “Ford appears in the same way as when he starred in the first part of the series in the fifth Indiana Jones movie.” Ford was 40 years old when the first Indiana Jones movie was released in 1982. It is thanks to artificial intelligence (AI) that 80-year-old Ford can act like he was 40 years ago. The AI software of “ILM,” a special effects company set up by director George Lucas, who directed the movie Star Wars, created Ford’s youthful face.

The busiest thing in the film industry these days is AI, not director or actor. AI is active in many ways, including learning actors’ faces and voices to return to their youth, analyzing audience tendencies to predict box office success, writing scenarios, and casting actors.

An actor in his 80s looks like he’s in his 40s

The effect or technique of returning to a younger age is called de-aging. In the past, the actor’s wrinkles were erased as if they were photoshopped and the skin tone was brightened. This method was too time-consuming and expensive to use in many scenes. AI was used in earnest for de-aging when ILM developed a software called “Face Finder.”

The software became popular when it was used in Martin Scorsese’s “Irishman” at the end of 2019. Irishman had actors in their 70s, such as Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, act directly into the character’s youth. The filming team combined two infrared cameras with a digital camera to film the actor in 3D video and AI learned about the two-year-old movie in which the actors appeared in their youth. Based on this, it embodies the actor’s youth in each scene in consideration of age, expression, camera angle, and lighting.

Face Swap, a software developed by domestic special effects company Viv Studio, is also using AI. It is used to change the face of a band such as a stuntman into the face of an actor, and AI also learns the face of an actor in advance and produces a natural effect.

AI also creates voices. When actor Val Kilmer, who starred in “Top Gun: Maverick” released this year, was unable to speak due to throat cancer surgery, AI learned the voice of the past and created the voice at its current age. As James Earl Jones, who played the voice of the main character Darth Vader for 40 years in the Star Wars series, changed his voice as he got older, AI learned his voice when he was young and voiced Darth Vader.

Hollywood has established the AI Institute for Film

AI is also used to increase the probability of movie box office success and reduce production costs. It predicts the movie genre, budget level, and box office level according to actor selection, and determines the optimal combination. Movieio, an American film marketing company, predicts the audience of movies with AI and presents distribution and marketing strategies. The AI called Pves, which Disney uses, analyzes the faces of the audience in the first few minutes of the movie and predicts the possibility of a movie’s success in advance. IBM’s artificial intelligence Watson also makes movie trailers. After analyzing the scenes of the science fiction movie “Morgan” with various emotions such as fear, tranquility, sadness, and happiness, I chose the 10 most suitable scenes for inserting the trailer.

This is not all. Major Hollywood filmmakers such as Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, and Universal have created AI labs at the University of Southern California (USC). The institute, called the Entertainment Technology Center (ETC), is using AI to study how TV and movie users make rumors and when to release movies.

Domestic special effects companies that once opened offices in China to save labor costs are also using AI. New ID, an in-house venture of the movie company New, recently used SK Telecom’s AI solution to restore the image quality of the animation “Looking for Mom Samman-ri” in the 70s, and erased subtitles from the French subtitles of the classic movie “Flower Girl” in the 70s, where the original. Park Joon-kyung, CEO of New ID, said, “The time and manpower have been greatly reduced by using AI what people have done manually.”
