About looking cool:

Q: This is a movie whose story is based on just the four of you plus if you take the masculine image of the original film "A Better Tomorrow" into consideration, there must've been some competition to look cooler than the other person.

Joo Jin-mo: Despite my effort to look cool, my wardrobe wasn't enough to... (laugh) I didn't think that. My only concern was to express how my character worries and is in conflict as the older brother. As for looking great, there were other people to do that, not me. (laugh) I did put in some effort in the end to try to look great but I don't know what you'll think of it.

It's not all about work, they always meet for drinking bouts....


Q: Everyone are male actors -- from the main stars to the supporting roles.

Joo: The best thing about not having an actress on set was that we could communicate openly and in a straightforward manner. We saved on a lot of time because we would speak our minds directly without having to beat around the bush. Of course, the reason we were able to become comfortable enough to do that was because there were many gatherings outside of the movie set where everything was always rushed. When the four of us gather, we'd always end up having a drinking bout. I even saw Song fall sleep with his mouth open while drinking. (laugh)

Everyone wants to be the bad guy...

Q: Were there any roles you wanted to take on other than your own?

Joo: Male actors look for roles that are about real acting once they pass the age of 30. When I first read the scenario, I was interested in Jo Han-sun's character and after watching the completed film, I was able to feel that there was a big change to Jo. Whereas Jo played the character as someone who is more sharp, I think I would've been able to show him as a more of a bad guy by portraying him as a sly character. (laugh)

Song: All four characters have such distinctive characteristics and everyone is so great that I didn't dare think I'd do better than them but if I had to pick one, I would say that Jo's role caught my eye because Jo pulled it off well that he seemed hateful to the point that I wanted to beat him up. (laugh) But of course, I have a stronger attachment to my role. (laugh)

Kim: All male actors desire to take on the bad guy so I too wanted to try playing Taemin who faces all three characters.

Jo: Everyone wanted my role... I liked my role the best (laugh) and I don't think I would've been able to play any other role even I was asked to. I saw from the movie that everyone seems to have had a very hard time. I like my role! (laugh)

And he is excited about shooting with a gun...

Q: Joo and Song, it seems that you two are very used to handling guns.

Joo: To add on a little more explanation about guns, you usually end up blinking your eyes if you shoot at a shooting range but I was told the scene wouldn't look nice that way so I practiced to shoot while keeping my eyes open. When we actually go into shoot, each blank costs 10,000 won so we didn't get to practice much and instead practiced with toy guns. Once we go into shoot, we'd shoot excitedly. (laugh)

@dear busanyok,

Thank you so much for sharing.  It is great to be able to understand what they say.

By the way, hope you don't mind - I added ABT to the title and added the video clip - seems this is the one.  Let me know if you need any change. 

@dear ALL,

I suggest you to read this article in full.  There is more.
