‘Sweet Home’ director Lee Eung-bok revealed the reason why he was attracted to the original webtoon.
On the morning of the 16th, an online production presentation of the Netflix original series’Sweet Home’ was held. Due to the COVID-19, it was broadcast live online, with director Eung-bok Lee and actor Song Kang, Lee Jin-wook, Lee Si-young, Lee Do-hyun, Kim Nam-hee, and Park Gyu-young and Go Yoon-jung, who were worried.
Director Lee Eung-bok said, “Everything in the original was interesting. The idea of becoming a monster with desire was fun. It was a fairy tale when a boy who was pessimistic about the world and decided to commit suicide went out to save the world when the world first fell. When I thought of Hyeonsu, I thought of Johnny Depp, the ‘scissors hand’. I have a pure and clear soul, but I remembered the image with a spear.”
In addition, director Lee Eung-bok said, “A monster appears, but the story I really wanted to tell was human. I wanted to ask what is a monster, and some monsters do not attack people. Just because you have desire is not always bad, and not always bad as a monster. I wanted to tell such a story without prejudice through this work.”
‘Sweet Home’ tells the bizarre and shocking story of a reclusive, lonely high school student, Hyeon-su, in an apartment where his family has been lost and moved. It will be released on Netflix on the 18th.
