Director Park Chan-wook emphasized that the new film 'The Decision to Break Up' is a 'adult story'.



Director Park Chan-wook, who attended the press conference for the movie 'Decision to break up' held in Cannes at 11:30 am (local time) on the 24th, asked the reason why there were no sex scenes and action scenes that have always appeared in previous works, and said, "If other directors made this You wouldn't have asked the question... Why are you asking why there isn't a scene that isn't there?" he laughed.



He continued, "I didn't include sex scenes and violent scenes because I didn't think they were necessary. When I first planned this movie, I said, 'This time, I really want to deal with adult stories for adults.' Then people around me said, 'A really great sex scene. I think this is coming.” I had the thought that I had to go against this expectation.”



Director Park Chan-wook emerged as a world-class master when he won the Grand Prize of the Jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004 for 'Oldboy'.

Afterwards, high-level action scenes and love affair scenes appeared in works such as 'Mr. Kind Venus', 'Bat', and 'The Handmaiden', which drew attention.



Enlarging an image


However, in this movie, which claims to be a 'real melodrama', there are no exposed sex scenes or violent scenes of violence.

To this, some responded 'Park Chan-wook's mild taste', and some responded "Park Chan-wook's evolution".



"Yesterday, while meeting and talking with distributors in various countries, a similar story came up. When each promoted this film in their own country, it was a work that shows the new evolution of Park Chan-wook." Then (the audience) imagined the evolved violence and sex. Why don't you do it? That's why I told you to call it a work by a director you don't know."



At this meeting, the question 'what do you think love is?' was also asked.

Director Park Chan-wook said, "I'm not the type of director who uses personal life or questions of life as the subject of a movie," but "Of the various relationships that can be formed between the characters of love, that person knows what the human race is best. I think it's the type of relationship that I can show."



'The Decision to Break Up' is an investigative melodrama about the story of a detective 'Hae-jun' (Park Hae-il), who is investigating a murder case in a mountain, meeting the deceased's wife 'Seo-rae' (Tang Wei) and feeling suspicious and interested at the same time. .

The film, which was invited to the competition section of the 75th Cannes Film Festival and received favorable reviews, will be released in Korea on June 29.
