Agent Kim Ha Neul in Sea Chasing Scene | 2008.12.16



Some production stills of the much anticipated spy movie “7th Grade Civil Servant“, casting Kim Ha Neul and Kang Ji Hwan were released recently. The above photo is taken from a scene where Kim Ha Neul disguises as a bride taking photo shoots and after a sudden crisis, hops onto a water jet-ski scooter in a sea-chasing action.

“7th Grade Civil Servant” is about a couple Soo Ji and Jae Joon who are both intelligence agents. They broke up without knowing the true identity of each other but later reunites during missions. Kim Ha Neul plays as the top agent of NIS, Soo Ji, with 6 years of experience while Kang Ji Hwan plays as Jae Joon, a rookie intelligence agent.

Ever since the casting of Kim Ha Neul and Kang Ji Hwan in the movie, “7th Grade Civil Servant” is already under the radar of many, as possibly the most anticipated movie of 2009. Kim Ha Neul has always enjoyed high popularity but she became even more popular after her role as Oh Seung Ah in SBS drama “On Air”. Kang Ji Hwan has also swept numerous Best Actor/Best Newcomer Actor awards this year for his movie “Rough Cut”. Placed together, they are now widely regarded as the new hope to revive the declining Korea movie industry.

“7th Grade Civil Servant” is currently at its final stage of filming and is scheduled to open in theatres in the first half of 2009.

'7th Grade Civil Servant Cast Interview | 2009.04.20



Movie Week Interview Part 1 (from Movie Week via Kang Star)
Their third encounter Kim Ha Neul and Kang Ji Hwan talked about each other

Q. The two of you have worked together previously in a CM and the drama 90 Days. How did you feel when you found out you were cast together in 7 Grade?

KHN: I had a good feeling since we already worked together and knew each others acting style, weaknesses and strengths, and personality. When you work with an actor for the first time, it takes time to understand each other, so this time we didn't have go through that.

KJH: It was definitely easier than working with someone for the first time.

Q. When you first met, KHN was already a star, and KJH was a newcomer. The situation is a little different now. What does it feel like?

KHN: It feels strange. It made me realize I've been acting for a long time. I've worked a couple times with Yoo Ji Tae ssi and Kwon Sang Woo ssi, so when I think about it, I've been doing this for a long time. When we first met, KJH was a rookie and I thought of him as just a CM model, so we didn't exchange vey many words. Then about a year after that, we co-starred in a drama call 90 Days, but even then I just thought that we had to work hard because he was a newcomer.

KJH: Before, I thought the sky (Ha Neul means sky) was pretty high, but it actually wasn't. (laughs)
When you get to work with a good actress like KHN, it spurs you on to do your best. She covers up what you're lacking and makes you feel as ease, I was like wow, that's just what you would expect of KHN.

KHN: You'd better thank me, huh? (laughs)

Q. When we watch the making film the atmosphere seemed really good. We heard there were lots of laughter and NG's.

KHN: KJH ad libbed a lot. It would have been fine if he told me beforehand, but he'd just think about it and do it while shooting, so sometimes I didn't know what to do. The first few times it was funny, but soon I got tired of it. (laughs)

KJH: You're supposed to ad lib when no one's expecting it.

KHN: But you can at least warn your partner.
(When he feels he's in a disadvantage, KJH looks the other way. He asks his manager for a cup of hot tea. KHN badgers him, "You're supposed to ask for two hot teas.")

Q. Looking at the length of your careers, KHN is KHJ's senior, but how is it normally?

KHN: Actually, we spoke in formal terms until we did the drama. Normally the actors talk to each other formally, but we got friendly while shooting the movie. And he told me to call him oppa. (laughs)

KJH: (with an expression as if to turn around his disadvantageous situation) We usually move down anyone born between January and December of the year and KHN was born in 1978 so naturally I'm the oppa.

KHN: Even though I was born in 1978, my birthday's in February so a lot of my classmates were born in 1977. So KHJ says he was born in 1977 so we could be friends too, but later he says he was born in March of 1977 and he's one grade above me, so he told me to keep on calling him oppa. So what could I do?

KJH: That's how it is in this country and if you're born later you should naturally call me oppa.

KHN: But all my friends are (year of the) snake! (born in 1977)



Movie Week Interview Part 2
A Fantastic Match

They looked like they might start bickering, but when the questions about the movie and acting came up, they started praising each other.

Q. You looked like you were well matched when acting, but how was it actually? Is there a scene that went especially well?

KHN: This is a little embarrassing but there's a kiss scene in the movie, and I thought this scene went really well. It turned out a lot funnier and natural than I expected. It was a scene where we kissed with intense emotions, but I did some ad libbing and KJH came back with some ad libbing of his own.

KJH: We started by shooting the ending scene. It was the last action scene where we had to coordinate our movements, and even though we shot the scene without hardly any rehearsals, it turned out well. If it was someone I was working with for the first time, I think it would have took more time to get used to each other, but it turned out really well.

Q. On the other hand, did you find out something new about each other?

KJH: Until now, KHN played a lot of roles that projected innocence so I was a little worried as to whether she would be able to handle all the actions, but she actually did it. I was able to see a different KHN and I felt that she was a natural actress. I was especially impressed when she continued to act after she got injured.

KHN: KJH is lot more serious person than I had expected. Before, I thought he was being that way because the character in the drama was serious, but he was serious even when he was enacting a comical character in this movie. But that seriousness lead to laughter at times. He seems to think a lot.

Q. Seems like we can also look forward to the performance of the supporting cast.

KJH: Yes. This project turned out well thanks to the great performance by the supporting cast who helped liven up our characters.

KHN: There's probably some comical blood flowing through me. It seems the comical acting comes naturally when we start filming.
'My Tutor Friend' tried to get laughter from exaggerated expressions and actions, but in this movie, the laughter comes from the reaction to situations that occur one after another. There's a scene at the police station where KJH teases me about my breast and I get really mad. Afterwards, as we were watching that scene on the monitor, someone asked me "That wasn't acting, you were really pissed off, weren't you?." (laughs)

Q. Since this is a spy movie, was there a specific movie you used for reference:

KJH: At first we didn't know which ones to use as a reference, since there are so many movies relating to spies, CIA, FBI, etc. But the director showed us a documentary about the life of a real national agent, and that was real informative. It was a story about a spy involved in Korean affairs, and on top of that it he was a civil servant so I was able to relate.

KHN: Everyone compares it to Mr. & Mrs. Smith, but 7 Grade Civil Servant is totally different. The scenario is based on the documentary the director had us watch. Towards the end of the documentary, a married man comments that he keeps his occupation a secret even to his children, but has not once regretted it. I was moved to tears by that.
KJH: You can see it in the movie too, but when an incident occurs, the national agent generally takes care of it and hands it over to the detectives to wrap it up. They do all the dirty work but have to stay in the background, so their existence is not known. I was really touched by this documentary.

Q. Watching the movie, there were many scenes where KJH spoke Russian and KHN spoke Japanese. Did you have a tutor?

KHN: You'll find out after you watch the movie, but we were both very good (laugh). In my case, a friend taught me. There was one scene, though that I kept on getting NGs. The emotions were there, but it seems the pronunciation wasn't. I kept on saying ri instead of ra. It's on the making video too, but we decided to focus on the emotions. We figured the (Korean) viewers probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference anyway, so we went ahead and gave it a go.

KJH: I learned from a koreinin (Koreans living in the territory of the former Soviet Union) who speaks Russian. I couldn't understand why that person's pronunciation was so different from mine, even though I thought I was pronouncing it just as I was taught. There were Russian people in the movie too, and their pronunciation, the koreinin's and mine were all different. (laugh) That was too funny.



Movie Week Interview Part 3
To love yourself more than anyone else

Q. There were a lot of action scenes. What was the most difficult part?

KHN: I had to ride the jet ski in the cold weather, that was really tough. I realized how difficult the action part was. I also tried to do as much fighting scene myself as possible. I was so nervous, but the staff must've heard somewhere that I'm the type who does better when praised, they'd applaud and praise me. That helped me decide to keep on going.

KJH: The action scenes were the most difficult for me too. The actions of Jae Joon, to fit his character, were more along the line of being slapstick, so it was hard to create actions to fit that image. The martial arts director created the basic movements, and I had to arrange the movements to make it Jae Joon's actions. That part was particularly difficult. And this time I got hurt too. During the one year that I was filming 'Hong Gil Dong' I never got hurt, but the injury this time made me realize that I need to be aware of other things besides just acting.

Q. Action plays a big part in the movie '7th Grade Civil Servant', but it's also a romantic comedy about two lovers who have to choose between love and career. If this was your real situation, which would you choose?

KJH: I want to be a man who can catch two rabbits at the same time I can dream, can't I? (laugh) I think you need to be free of worry both economically and psychologically, so I want to work hard first and when the time is right, fall in love.

KHN: My thoughts are rather conservative, and I've had my thoughts about ideal love since my childhood. I think the most important thing in life is love, so when I'm working and in love at the same time, I tended to place more importance on love, but when you break up, you're left with nothing, just a feeling of emptiness. I think it's important to first fulfill yourself. Of course, it's best you can make both (love and career) work, but I thought that for now, I had to love myself before I could love someone else. I feel that if I don't give myself priority, I would end up losing both.

Q. The release date is coming up. How do you feel now?

KNH: I'm very excited. I was pretty confident that it would go well when I read the scenario and during the filming. Of course, as the release date nears, I get nervous at times. So from about a week ago, every time I turned on my pc I started searching for the movie title on the internet. I don't normally get on my pc a lot, but thanks to this movie, I'm on the internet often now. (laugh) I think the nervousness I feel now isn't from fear, but from the excitement.

KJH: The technical preview will be held tomorrow, but I have great expectation from myself. I think the results will be good if the atmosphere and the emotions from the time we filming carries over to the movie.

Q. I get the impression that both of you have a very positive attitude, but do you, as an actor and as a human being, have anything that's troubling you now?

KHN: I'm bit of a sensitive type, so when I got a project, I used to worry about the character from the hairstyle to the relationship with the surrounding people, but I found out that worrying didn't solve anything. Plus, worrying about that sort of thing took away from my focus and only got in the way, so nowadays I don't worry too much and try to live with a positive attitude. For example, like this morning when I had my bangs cut, I told myself It's going to look good. (laughs) In the book called 'Secret', it talks how if you have a positive outlook, you will do well in your job, and I think it's really true. Recently I've come to realize that.

KJH: I'm a little different from KHN. I'm real sensitive to the ratings and attendance. My reason for acting is for the audience to watch and enjoy, and so if the viewers aren't there, I tend to blame myself that I hadn't done my duty as an actor. If the results are good enough to satisfy the director and the staff, only then can I be proud of myself. Maybe that's why I get so serious on the set.

Q. Then what kind of attendance would satisfy you?

KHN: I would want it to surpass 'My Tutor Friend.'When we were shooting, we talked about how great it would be if we could get 7,000,000 since the title of the movie is '7th Grade Civil Servant'.If that happened, I'd feel I could even fly. (laughs)

KJH: (his serious expression turned brighter) I heard the response was good after the advance screening, so I'm feeling a little relieved now. (laughs)

South Korean theater chain to provide Japanese subtitles | 2009.04.21



SEOUL, April 21 (Yonhap) -- Lotte Cinema, one of South Korea's largest cinema multiplex chains, will be providing Japanese subtitles for a select number of domestic movies it screens beginning this week, the company said Tuesday.

The decision follows a Seoul city-led English subtitle service that began a month ago, which resulted in a noticeable increase of foreign viewers at its theaters, Lotte Cinema said. The Japanese subtitles will be offered at the Lotte Cinema in Myeongdong and Gyeondae in Seoul, and Seomyeon in the southeastern port city Busan once every evening.

"Level 7 Bureaucrat," starring Kim Ha-neul and Kang Ji-hwan as special agents of South Korea's spy agency, has been selected as the first film to be shown with Japanese subtitles. Lotte Cinema has previously screened several local box office hits including "Speed Scandal," "Handphone" and "Shadow Killing" with English subtitles.

Foreigners residing in South Korea have been asking the government for English subtitle services as Korean movies enjoy increasing popularity at home and abroad.

7 Grade Civil Servant received such overwhelming response from the general public through the premiere showings that a decision was made to hold paid premieres nationally this weekend on the 18th and 19.

Since the press premiere, the amusing and refreshing story with a novel theme of a national agent couple leading a dual life, along with the successful image change for Kim Ha Neul and Kang Ji Hwan, has garnered so much attention, and received such favorable reception as the next “Overspeed Scandal” that it was quickly decided to hold paid premiere at theaters nationally.

Due to the continuing praise being given to Kim Ha Neul and Kang Ji Hwan by movie critics on various portal sites and a sudden demand by the viewers inquiring about the advance tickets and the release date in anticipation of viewing the movie, the premiere of 7 Grade Civil Servant will be held starting at 7:00pm this weekend.

7 Grade Civil Servant Interview at the Press Premiere | 2009.04.21



Q. Do you think you worked well together?

KJH: This is the 2nd time we’ve been cast together since the drama and we know each others acting style well, so yes, we worked well together.

KHN: The project we worked on together previously was a melodrama, and this time it was a comedy, so prior to the shooting, I had my doubts, but we worked very well together. We were able to shoot some good scenes without rehearsals, and I realized how important it was to be compatible with the opposing actor.

Q. We heard that there were a lot of scenes where you beat up on KJH.

KHN: I’ve always had roles where I beat up on someone (in previous projects), but this time was the most violent.

KJH: I used camera angles to look like I was really getting beat up. . The fact that I took the timing and reaction into consideration probably contributed to the success of the shooting. The conclusion is, if you don’t really want to get hit, you have to act well.

Q. What difficulties did you have while shooting?

KJH: We filmed throughout the night for 3 days for the arsenal scene It was an important scene in the movie, but right during that time I hurt my ankle and couldn’t take part in the shooting. After it healed, I joined the staff and finished shooting. I wasn’t feeling 100 percent, and after several days of not getting enough sleep, I continued to shoot without being able to move around as I wanted to. As a result, we had to change the flow of the action. I felt bad to the staff for being a hindrance, and I had a tough time not being able to do the actions scenes like I wanted.

Q. Which scene would you recommend to the viewers?

KHN: There is a scene we call “lobster scene” where we misunderstand each other. When we were taking that scene, I got so emotional that I broke the plate when I was only supposed to bang on the lobster. It was quite funny too when we were filming that scene.

KJH: The action scene at the Suwon Castle, that scene was filmed pretty early on. I was a little worried that we went right ahead and filmed the last scene first, but it’s also a scene that exceeded my expectations, so I’d like the viewers to take note of the last scene.

A message to the viewers.

KHN: Our “7 Grade Civil Servant" will finally be released on April 23!

KJH: Please give it much love. Thank you. Fighting!

[7級公務員] カン・ジファン&キム・ハヌルが語るキスシーンビハインドストーリー
[7th Grade Civil Servant] Kang Ji-hwan and Kim Ha Neul
| 2009.04.21

KHN: Since it was my first action role, I got a pretty ambitious, but when I actually tried it, I found out that it was pretty difficult. I got hurt early on, but I kept on telling myself “Gotta do well, gotta, do well.”
First of all, there were a lot of things I had to learn. Horseback riding, jet ski, fighting scene, I had to do all these myself. I had a hard time with that. But the martial arts director helped me a lot and the atmosphere of the set was very good too, so it went better than at practice.

KJH: You may know this, but there was an NG because KHN’s lips split during the kiss scene.

KHN: The kiss scene that was just mentioned is the kiss scene at Su Ji’s house. The ending kiss scene felt like it took longer to film. A helicopter was used to take full shots and from different angles. That scene was actually filmed during the early stage of filming, so even though we had starred together previously in a drama, we were still uncomfortable when we shot that kiss scene and I was a bit embarrassed.

KJH: The director let me act quite freely for this role I made up a lot of settings that weren’t in the script. First of all, I put my effort in portraying Jae Joon as a pure-hearted character who tries his best in everything he does. From the motion with the fingers to several scenes after that I put in a lot sidebars that weren’t in the script. I’m curious as to how you viewed them.

Director: Recently the economy has been hit hard and life is full of stress. I wanted to bring to the people some fun during these times. I would be pleased if you can relieve some of that stress during the 2 hours you’re watching the movie 7 Grade Civil Servant.

KHN: I’m not sure how you felt while watching the movie, but I had a lot of fun watching it. As soon as I go home, I’ll be checking the internet to see what the media has to say about it.

KJH: Several movies will be released during April and May, so I’m a little scared, but please direct your attention and love to our “7 Grade Civil Servant.” I will also be checking out the internet later for the reviews as well as the reporter’s names…(laughs)
