[HanCinema's News] Moon So-ri and Park Hyung-sik Talk About "Juror 8" on Radio Program


On May 15th Moon So-ri and Park Hyung-sik appeared on the radio program 'Sister Radio' on SBS. They were on to talk about their new movie, "Juror 8", which opened that same day.

During the interview Moon So-ri promised special surprises in case "Juror 8" achieved certain achievemnts in terms of viewership. She said that at the two million viewer mark, Park Hyung-sik would do something. At the three million viewer mark, she and Jo Han-chul would do something. And the five million viewer mark, the whole cast would do an interview with Park Hyung-sik in a military uniform and film it.

They also discussed the content of the movie. Park Hyung-sik noted that Moon So-ri showed tremendous stage presence as the judge, even though she spends almost the entire film sitting down. Moon So-ri talked about how she did a lot of research for the role, to the point of interviewing various female judges. According to Moon So-ri the conversations often turned informal, with her asking the judges if she could address them without honorifics.

Park Hyung-sik related an anecdote about how his first scene took twenty seven takes and how this stressed him out to the point of needing a smoke. In "Suits" and other dramas, frequent takes are rare, but are a more frequent occurence in film. Park Hyung-sik said he wasn't sure how to react to statements from director Hong Seung-wan about how 'that was great, now try to do it a little better'.

Moon So-ri also expressed surprise at the number of takes, noting that each scene required between three and forty and that the process was difficult. Because "Juror 8" was shot on film, Moon So-ri also ribbed director Hong Seung-wan about the cost of the canisters, asking him if he was going to pay for them all. However, he assured both stars that they were doing so many takes to make sure they got them right, and this satisfied both of them.

Park Hyung-sik's upcoming mandatory military service was also a point of discussion. Park Hyung-sik will be joining in June. "Juror 8" is his last project before deployment, and he expressed hope to do well and expressed hope that the movie would give people happiness. As for his own working situation, Park Hyung-sik said he had no regrets.

"Juror 8" is a dramatized version of South Korea's first jury trial, which happened some ten years ago. It opened in South Korean theaters on May 15th.
