He believes that the movie version is a difficult task. “People who have never watched a TV series must be able to understand this movie, and fans of the TV version should be able to enjoy it.

He said that there are many creations from scratch in the production, and he also said that he did not rely on computer special effects to create living corpses.

“We must insist that they are logic controlled by wizards, so they have to have realistic movements.”

Speaking of the most difficult scene, Yong-wan Kim admitted that it was a car chasing scene in the streets and tunnels.

“In the past, there have been many excellent car chasing scenes in film and television productions, so I had to create unique scenes. The safety of staff and actors was our top priority. Therefore, we developed equipment to carry cars to the studio, but later The filming location was changed to a tunnel. I am very grateful to the staff and actors. Although the air quality in the tunnel is very poor and the environment is full of challenges, they still put their best efforts.”
