"King of Pigs" is a dismal animation that's saturated with pessimism and salted with helplessness. This is global were category is king, where the system regulations all, and where one"s position within it's final. Depression, abusive, violence, and cruelty are the vices that continually beat down upon Jong-suk and his company as they exist, struggle, and hand over to the hardships the arena has set for them.
Audience Question - The voices of the 3 kid characters were conducted by women. I would love to grasp if this used to be done to symbolize the characters as weak?Yeon Sang-ho (director) - Originally, I planned to have these 3 characters voiced by men. Yang Ik-joon stated he couldn"t voice the center school elderly edition of his character. The voice of an adult guy would now not sound appropriate and if done by youngsters it can be tough for them on account of complicated phrases. In animations, usually, girls carry out the voices for young male characters. the more youthful characters in my film are first year center school students, so I assumed that it could be more suitable to have girls voice the college children.Audience Question - I have 3 questions for the director. Firstly, for your outdated animation "Love is Protein" (part oof "Indie Anibox : Selma"s Protein Coffee"), dogs and hen seem as humans. Is there a explanation why you personify animals? Secondly, in "King of the Pigs", bullied kids are labelled as pigs and bullies are labelled as dogs. What class is upper than a dog? Lastly, while you were in class what class did you fall in?Yeon Sang-ho (director) - In the animation "Love is Protein" (part oof "Indie Anibox : Selma"s Protein Coffee"), low source of revenue other people exploit each and every other to survive. So a white meat delivers a chicken. Resolution to your 2d question - the system which made the categories of pigs and dogs is above the dogs. Answer to your ultimate question - when i used to be at school I become a student who just watched what occurred and felt guilty.Audience Question - I idea Chul-Yi resembled a pig. Was this associated with Chul-Yi being called the "King of Pigs?" Did you're making Chul-Yi seem like a pig on purpose?Yeon Sang-ho (director) - I didn"t draw Chul-Yi to seem like a pig. I thought Chul-Yi was a sexy boy. some of the characters, Chul-Yi was the maximum handsome.Audience Question - i am getting curious when I watch videos about school violence, because when I attended school there wasn"t that more or less violence. Did you operate school violence in this film to specific positive broader mind or in my opinion revel in violence in school like in the film?Yeon Sang-ho (director) - I witnessed the Wager denims incident and the pouring of urine in middle school. That actually happened. I drew the characters whilst taking a look via my middle school yearbook. Even the nature names are very an identical to sure scholars I knew. i suspect if they watch the motion picture they'll know which persona represents which student. I feel nowadays, the placement in colleges are worse than in the movie.Audience Question - In the animation, Chul-Yi continues to have evil thoughts, but, suddenly, after Chul-Yi hears his mom speaking at the telephone and confronts Kyung-Min"s father his way of thinking changes. I know it"s imaginable to modify like that, yet what do you take into consideration that? In the first actual scene, Kyung-Min"s wife seems to be dead. Did she kill herself or was she murdered? For the voice actors let us know how the voice acting went?Yeon Sang-ho (director) - Kyung-Min"s wife is dead. That scene was there to create an ominous temper from the beginning. Kyung-Min killed his wife and attempted to kill himself. But, he in the end is going out to satisfy Jong-Suk. Chul-Yi realizes that he cannot solve the class complications in his school after seeing kids who are less than him have folks which are better than his. At that point he's confused. the opposite reason his frame of mind adjustments is due to his mother. When I made this movie I keen on making the audience feel uneasy or disturbed. Hopefully, the audience feels that.Kim Kkobbi (actress) - The voices for adult Jong-Suk and Kyung-Min were recorded sooner than the animation was completed. the kid characters were recorded after the animation was done. So, for the newborn characters, it was more difficult. The acting for an animation is a lot more challenging than an ordinary movie. In movies, I will express what I wish to express, but for animations I need to sync my voice to the picture and put emotional emotions into my voice, in addition stay the mindset of a boy. It was difficult, but we finished in 2 days.Yang Ik-joon (actor) - About 5-6 years ago I read the state of affairs for "King of Pigs" and that evening I couldn"t fall asleep. I was apprehensive by the social nature of the scenario. those that express one of these hobby and violence were bystanders in school. When they transform adults they act this stuff out. I am one of them. My motion pictures are the same. 5-6 years ago, when I read the script I was shocked. The script was the most efficient script I had read up till that point. Because of this, I kept an eye on him and watched the development of the animation. He"s also a close friend & colleague of mine. I made my first long film slightly before Yeon Sang-ho. We talked a lot. Korea isn"t known for its animations and for any person from here to make an animation like this they will have to be admired and respected. i am hoping you give him a large circular of applause.Audience Question - I am a painter so I concentrated on the visual images. I know the rough, minimalistic drawings created the precise mood for the film, but, at the similar time, i may see that spatially some things didn"t appear right. For example, the small condominium had a wide door which would be more appropriate in a miles larger apartment. I would prefer to understand if this was an error or you didn"t care about the spatial qualities of the drawings?Yeon Sang-ho (director) - About the animation. a huge number of it leaves much to be desired. We worked with a limited budget. It was difficult to mediate. Animation calls for individuals to paintings in combination and make corrections unless it is right. payment is generated by making these corrections. As a director, i must come to a decision whether it has to be corrected or not corrected, unless, we can"t even whole the work due to the budget. What I targeted on the most was the emotional expressions. Made certain to have a consistent form of emotions. I wrote the scenario in no time powered by a surge of emotions. I was hoping to have the animation advanced like that. I think the animation went out like that.Audience Question - Background of the movie is decided in a school. i might be expecting teacher"s to have gave the impression a load more than they did in the movie. Could you give an explanation for why?Yeon Sang-ho (director) - I gave a lovely thin description of dogs, who are essentially students that wields power, because studies involving students who wields vitality has been handled in quite so much of movies. What "King of Pigs" deals with is the children who don"t have power. That"s why I didn"t have a number of instructor characters. They are like beside the point people, who don"t go unless it advantages them. By some means they wield justice.Audience Question - I would love to know the importance of Jong-Suk"s tear in the last scene?Yeon Sang-ho (director) - I think Jong-Suk"s tear in the last scene seems like atonement and one way or the other feels liberating.Audience Question - You discussed that you finished the normal script very quickly. What encouraged you?Yeon Sang-ho (director) - I were given inspired by my dream. While serving in the military, I wrote down about 10 pages of memos from a dream. When writing the original screenplay the tale replaced a lot. While making "King of Pigs", the work that inspired me the most was the manga "Himizu" by Minoru Furuya. Also, while writing the original screenplay, I was inspired by Clint Eastwood"s "Mystic River".
