Director Jang Hyun-sang explained about the work, “It’s been a long time since the characters with different personalities gathered in Heyri, their hometown, but I wanted to tell a story about getting caught up in a zombie apocalypse.
Then, about the reason for planning this movie, he said, “I wanted to make a fun movie just by making it. It is a movie in which the characters who were going their own way shine through the zombie apocalypse, but I support people who are steadily going their own way. “I wanted to show the message of. Coincidentally, I was comforted by watching the movie while going through the corona crisis. I thought that if I go my own way, I will be able to overcome this tunnel someday. I hope that such a message of consolation can be delivered.”
Gong Min-jung said, “It was amazing just going to the film festival. While we were filming together, we had fun filming, but we didn’t see it perfectly, and I thought it would be nice to be loved, but I wasn’t sure. I thought it would be difficult to get sympathy from many people, but I thought it went well at the film festival. I was grateful for just being able to show it at the film festival, and it is a good thing and I am grateful to have it even released.” Park So-jin also said, “It’s my first time to release an independent film. I’m curious to see how it will look.”
