‘Rebound’ Ahn Jae-hong “Watching SK games for work…Every time I go, I win.” (Interview)
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.
