About This DVD

Production Note 1 Korea's best staff comes together in "Public Enemy"

The people who made "Public Enemy" are professionals considered the best in the Korean film industry. Cinematographer KIM Seong-bok, who received much recognition for many movies which became hits and won critical-acclaim; lighting director SHIN Hak- seong, a veteran with a slew of films under his belt; martial arts choreographer JUNG Doo-hong, whose skills are the most sought after for action flicks; and production designer CHOI Byung-keun, who is praised for his outstanding talent. "Public Enemy" draws much anticipation not only because it's Director KANG Woo-seok's work, but that it's also a film made by Korea's best staff.

Production Note 2 Armed with a Solid Supporting Cast

The humor and spunk in "Public Enemy" are mainly attributed to the supporting cast, who are famous for their superb acting. Captain UHM always acts like a nagging old woman, but he's nevertheless on Chul-joong's side. A shameless liquor seller named Ahn-soo always causes trouble. Chul-joong's informant, Dae-gil, who hates to rat on people, but can never run away from Chul-joong. And a retired low-life gangster named Yong-man who can get out of old habits. These four characters are the central figures who make up the humor of this movie.

KANG Shin-il whose acting ability is highly-recognized among Korea theater actors, LEE Moon-sik who is leaping to fame with his indispensable comic acting in "Hi Darma", SUNG Ji-roo and YOO Hae-jin who was highly-praised for their excellent acting in "Kick the Moon." In "Public Enemy", they are the moving force behind its humor with their well-achieved acting abilities.

Director KANG Woo-suk's flawless production plan and superb leadership on the set

"Public Enemy" aroused interest in the Korean film industry even during the script stage. Many expected that making this film wouldn't be easy because of its massive scale. They predicted the shooting schedule to exceed the normal 50 or 60 days, but Director KANG Woo-suk surprised everyone. He had already made a flawless storyboard during pre-production, and on the set, he was always in control and never missed a beat. He even checked every second of each take and used quick judgement for every visual detail. As Director KANG Woo-suk was well in sync with his veteran staff and took control of the set, the filming for "Public Enemy" was wrapped up in just 35 days as planned.
