About This DVD
1) A Totally Korean Parody!!
"A Funny Movie" is an all-out Korean movie parody. In fact, it’s Korea’s very first movie parody, not to mention it only parodied Korean movies. Is it possible to make a movie parody out of only Korean movies? Within the past ten years, Korean film industry has taken a huge leap in both quality and volume. There were hugely successful blockbusters as well as other features with vast range of subjects. can be considered a culmination of Korea’s hugely successful film industry in that every film that’s been parodied is Korean. The fact that a strictly Korean parody is possible suggests us its potential to become a hugely successful film.
2) A Parody Feature with Scale.
When you turn on a TV, there’s parody virtually everywhere in dramas, commercials, music videos, etc. Since they’re mostly comedies, parodies can be taken lightly. Considering the fact that there weren’t that many movie parodies that proved popular in Korea, the audience may have a tendency to take parody and movie parody in the same token. However, the parodies we’ve been witnessing in Korea thus far, were only clones of other world renowned parodies. "A Funny Movie"’s production cost was nearly 3 hundred thousand dollars in total which is substantially high in the Korean film industry. In short, it would be a mistake to simply put aside parody as a low budget, low quality film. In fact, it costs more, since redoing the famous scenes from other films mean that the money that would be spent otherwise is being invested into a single movie. "A Funny Movie" will break the stereotype of parodies as a low-budget feature and instead start a new beginning of high-level movie parody.
3) 2001.12.12 Yangsuri Studios - 300,000 Dollar Budget, “Korea’s First Ever Parody!”
"A Funny Movie" will change the perception of a movie parody as a low budget, light film. LIM Won-hee (Fangbo) and SUH Tae-hwa (Gabdu) play Korean secret agents in this exciting new movie parody. KP (Korea Police) is the main stage where the movie’s majority scenes take place. The process of setting up the set to give it a look of an actual federal intelligence agency was a grueling work indeed. 100 computers with LCD screens and a conference room with large screens as well as hallways with bright lights. It took nearly a month to complete the building of the set. The end-result was a remarkable facility that resembled the set of ‘Lost Memories’.
4) 2002.1.20 Jun-joo Downtown Exchange Fire - More realistic than “Swiri”…
Filming on this day was to capture the head-to-head exchange fire between the Japanese extreme rightist group Million Men Patriots and Korean Special Forces of KP (Korea Police). Murakami (KIM Su-ro), the head of MMP and Fango (LIM Won-hee) as well as his partner Gabdu (SUH Tae-hwa)’s exchange fire was filmed by actually clearing the 1 km stretch in front of the Jun-joo City Hall. To add to the action the crew filmed a bus explosion scene. The crew had prepared to film this scene for six months. They worked closely with the Jun-joo Film Association for proper approvals needed to film the scene. The most difficult task was to clear the road that stretched 1 km right in front of the Jun-joo City Hall where it’s most crowded all day. The special effects team obviously had most weight put on their shoulders that day. During this process they had to make sure that the flame from the rifles and guns would be clearly visible even if it had rained which is what took twice the time it normally requires for a scene of such scale. The crew also prepared two ambulances and four fire trucks to prevent fire or any serious injuries. Between the 19th and the 20th, with over 2000 ammos fired, and a bus exploded, the budget for this scene itself ran up some where near two hundred thousand dollars. The 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup is not far ahead. But Japan’s ultra right-wing group, the Million Men Patriots, are setting up a plot to disrupt the historic soccer match. After going through severely harsh training, the Million Men Patriots finally selects Murakami and a cold-hearted sharp-shooter named Hanako as leaders of the World Cup sabotage team. To carry out their dangerous goal, the clandestine group is dispatched to Seoul. But later on, while pursuing their objective, they keep running into mistakes and even run out of sabotage money. Little by little, they face difficulties in their top-secret mission.
