On the afternoon of the 2nd, the production presentation of ‘Lost’ was broadcast live online. The event was attended by actors Jeon Do-yeon, Ryu Jun-yeol, and director Huh Jin-ho.
‘Lost’ is director Heo Jin-ho’s first drama. Director Heo said, “I wasn’t confident, but I got the script and wanted to do it. The script was so good that I had the courage to do it. It touched my heart because it was not a story about a special person, but a universal pain.” He said.
Director Heo said that as soon as he received the script, he thought of Jeon Do-yeon and Ryu Jun-yeol. He said, “I read the script up to the first 4 episodes, and I thought of actors Jeon Do-yeon and Ryu Jun-yeol. Actually, it is not easy to work with the actors I first thought of, but I think I was very lucky to be able to shoot like this.”
When asked about the difference between a movie and a drama, director Heo said, “After the script is completed, I go to the site to work on the film, but I was curious and frustrated because the drama was filmed in a situation where the script wasn’t all out. Those parts were fun. “, he explained. Director Heo added, “There are unique emotions that the script has. Those emotions were difficult and very deep, so it was not easy to understand. I tried to make those parts universally understandable.”
Jeon Do-yeon took on the role of Jung-bu, a great writer who wanted to become a writer. She is a woman who has done her best, but has lost her reason for living while facing herself who has failed on the descent of her life.
Jeon Do-yeon said, “I wanted to avoid heavy and dark works, but I chose it because it is a story that seeks light even though it is dark.” Jeon Do-yeon said, “I cried a lot while reading the script, and I was deeply moved by the injustice that did nothing.”
Jeon Do-yeon said, “I’m nervous and nervous. It’s a bit burdensome. So I look back on the dramas around me more, and I’m more skeptical. I’m still worried.”
When asked about the part she focused on while acting, Jeon Do-yeon said, “I was most worried about how to understand injustice and how to open up the closed person’s heart.” Jeon Do-yeon continued, “I was standing on the edge of a cliff, and I thought it was a denial that was close to death, but meeting Kang-jae and starting to see the world from a different perspective and seeing the light in a small way gave me a lot of strength.”
Regarding the charm of infidelity, Ryu Jun-yeol said, “She’s a cool person. Sometimes she expresses her feelings honestly, but sometimes she thinks of other people and holds them alone, so I thought she was a mature person.”
Ryu Jun-yeol plays Kang Jae, a service operator who wants to become rich. He is a man who takes risks in order to escape the genes of poverty and rise to a higher place.
Ryu Jun-yeol said, “The script is good, but I’m working with Jeon Do-yeon and Huh Jin-ho? I thought I had to do it unconditionally. I got the script, but I didn’t know when I would go back to someone else, so I quickly decided to appear.”
Regarding the comeback after 5 years, he said, “I got a lot of questions from people around me about when to start a drama, but I didn’t hide it.”
When Jeon Do-yeon said, “I thought Ryu Jun-yeol wouldn’t do it. Male actors generally want to do splendid works, so I thought they would be interested in small stories.”
Ryu Jun-yeol, who has done a lot of youth films in the past, said, “I can’t leave out the story about youth this time too, but the result is different from the previous ones. He is a lost character who feels and doesn’t know where to go. The loneliness and loneliness revealed in him seemed to show a different side of youth.”
Jeon Do-yeon praised Ryu Jun-yeol, saying, “He is tenacious, fierce, and has a greed that doesn’t want to miss anything.” In response, Ryu Jun-yeol said, “Senior Jeon Do-yeon is a master of acting, so I thought she would have a lot of free time, but while filming, I thought a lot and looked at myself in pain.
When asked about the charm of ‘disqualification’, Ryu Jun-yeol said, “There are honest points. Sometimes he brings out things he doesn’t want to talk about, and he expresses emotions that he doesn’t want to talk about and doesn’t want to be revealed. It will be fun because there are a lot of stories like what you see on TV.”
Have you ever felt ‘disqualified as a human being’ yourself? Jeon Do-yeon said, “I have never clearly defined it as a disqualification, but if I look at my life other than as an actor, I am not yet complete. I want to live,” she said.
Ryu Jun-yeol replied, “I was disqualified, but it seems like I’m trying to deny that I wasn’t.”
When asked about the point of watching, Jeon Do-yeon said, “There are no big events or rhetoric, but the rich emotions that humans feel are interesting things to see.”
Ryu Jun-yeol asked for attention, saying, “You will be able to see breathing, stories, and appearances that are different from existing dramas.”
‘Lost’ will be broadcasted for the first time at 10:30 pm on the 4th.
