‘Sweet Home’, a creature that vividly embodies the original, will be released today (18th).
‘Sweet Home’ depicts the bizarre and shocking story of a reclusive, lonely high school student, Hyeon-su, in an apartment that has moved after the loss of his family. It is the original work of the popular webtoon of the same name, which achieved 1.2 billion views in cumulative views with an interesting setting and suspenseful story that the inherent desire makes humans a monster.
Director Lee Eung-bok of ‘Mr. Sunshine’, ‘Guardian: The Lonely and Great God’ and ‘Descendants of the Sun’ was in charge, and actor Song Kang, Lee Jin-wook, Lee Si-young, Lee Do-hyun, Kim Nam-hee, and Park Gyu-young and Go Yoon-jung participated.
Previously, director Lee Eung-bok said, “Everything in the original was interesting. The idea of becoming a monster with desire was interesting. When a boy who was pessimistic about the world and decided to commit suicide, it was fairy tale to go out and save the world when the world first fell. “A monster appeared, but the story I really wanted to tell was human. I wanted to ask what a monster is, and some monsters don’t 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.”
The actors were curious about how the webtoon monster would become real-life. Song Kang said, “I was curious about how it would be realized while watching the webtoon. I am looking forward to it because it came out better than expected,” said Lee Jin-wook, “I am very excited. It was an expectation that it was a work that was not seen in Korea.” Park Gyu-young said, “The opportunity to act with the monster was interesting. I was looking forward to seeing how the monster picture would come out.”
Director Lee Eung-bok said, “I thought the original fan should not be disappointed. I tried to reflect the original design and character desire as much as possible. Muscle monsters even ripped their mouths like Jokers in order to show off their muscles and keep them smiling. Those who see it may be scary.”
Lee Si-young said, “I enjoyed the original work and participated in the work while looking forward to how the creature would be expressed. I couldn’t actually see it, but it was fun to imagine and act. It’s an honor to have the director show you in your spare time, and to be with you in the process. It seems to be a creature of perfection that has never been seen in Korea. The manager and the team put a lot of effort into it.”
‘Sweet Home’, a visual box that is faithful to the original webtoon, can be found on Netflix starting today.
