[trans] “International Market” Director, Casting U-Know Yunho in the role of Nam Jin.. Satisfied with all his qualities”
Director Yoon Jae Gyun has revealed his reasons for casting group TVXQ’s Jung Yunho (U-Know Yunho) in the role of Nam Jin.
At the media distribution preview cum press conference for movie “International Market” held in the afternoon on 24 November, Director Yoon Jae Gyun said, “Jung Yunho was well-equipped with all qualities”.
He explained, “In relation to Jung Yunho’s casting, because I wanted to make the movie realistically in my own way, because Nam Jin ssi is a singer, I thought that it would be good if one of the singers took on the role. In addition, in reality, if one were to take on the role of Nam Jin sunbaenim, because he is the representative singer of Jeolla-do, I thought that it would be good if it were someone who is able to perfectly grasp the Jeolla-do satoori (dialect), so I looked for a list (of those people who would be a good fit).”
Following that, he conveyed, “Jung Yunho’s hometown was Gwangju and after meeting him and speaking with him, I thought that he was the most suitable actor in all aspects with regard to his respect for Nam Jin, and his passion for the role, and the perfection of his satoori (dialect)”.
