“Ever since I was a child, I was thrilled and frightened when I thought of the existence of aliens. This movie was made from the thought of what it would be like to become a reality when the fantasy that made my childhood fun becomes a reality. .”

Director Choi Dong-hoon said at the press conference for the first part of ‘Alien + Human’ held at the Conrad Seoul Hotel on the 23rd, “I dedicated the last days of my youth to this movie.” It took two and a half years to write the screenplay for ‘Alien + Human’, the first new work in seven years since ‘Assassination’.

‘Alien + Human’ is a movie that combines the past and the present, humans and aliens, and combines science fiction and fantasy action. The first part tells the story of the opening of the door of time between the swordsmen who are rumored to be in the late Goryeo period and those who are chasing after an alien prisoner imprisoned in a human body as of 2022.

A guard (Kim Woo-bin), who currently lives and manages an alien prisoner, faces a crisis due to the prisoner’s sudden attempt to escape. Mun Do-seok (So Ji-sub), a homicide detective, is chased by aliens without even knowing English.

In 1390, at the end of the Goryeo dynasty, Muruk (Ryu Jun-yeol), a master swordsman, meets Ian (Kim Tae-ri), a widower who shoots a pistol and thunder while on a journey to claim a new sword with a bounty. Heukseol (Yum Jeong-ah) and Cheong-woon (Jo Woo-jin), who sell their own weapons, and Jajang (Kim Ui-seong) who hide their face with a mask also join the story.

The two axes of the film are sci-fi action featuring robots, spaceships, and aliens, and the battle for new swords between the swordsman, wife, and sages. As the characters’ stories are revealed one by one, two stories that seem to have no connection are expected to meet.

Director Choi said, “If there were aliens in the past, how would people accept them, and why did youkai enter the human body? This question was the beginning of the story.” “The basic meaning of the movie is the conflict between aliens and humans. “He said.

Regarding the setting of Goryeo as a historical background, he explained, “Maybe it was the last era in which the Taoist lived. I wanted to express the clothes and spaces of Goryeo.”

‘Alien + Human’ was filmed for 387 days, including the second part. This is the longest period in Korean film history. Director Choi said, “Parts 1 and 2 are adventure dramas, but there are some emotional differences.

Director Choi has mobilized more than 10 million viewers in succession with ‘The Thieves’ (2012) and ‘Assassination’ (2015). The new work after 7 years seems closer to the fantasy action ‘Jeon Woo-chi’ (2009) with a Joseon background that employs Kang Dong-won rather than his caper movie. Director Choi said, “‘Assassination’ was a realistic film. I wanted to do the complete opposite.”

Tae-ri Kim introduced, “There are many things to see, but in the end, it is an attractive film that talks about people.” Ryu Jun-yeol said, “I liked the setting of something that is neither this nor that, an idiot master.”
