    The translator is a first rate professional. She didn't miss any of director Bong's nuances. I know how difficult it is to translate between the structurally different languages like Korean and English. She is amazing.

    솔직히 칸느나 미국 캐나다 일본같은 곳에서 활약중인 통역사나 심지어 동시통역사들의 역량에는 경이롭다는 감탄사가 나옴과 동시에 대한민국의 국내통역사들 분발해야겠다는 생각이 든다.진짜 정확하게 잔달하니까 그야말로 자연스런 대화가 가능하게 되는건 정말정말 경이로운 스킬이다.

    Chris Evans once said on interview, "Director Bong is a borderline genius"
    Yes! It's so very true! Mr.Bong does everything. Theme, story making, conti, directing and so on. He is like a total package in terms of movie itself.

    To my side note...as a Korean, besides Bong's wonderful and honest interview on the movie and something related, I was really surprised by his perfect translator, she never missed even the tiny line that Bong mentioned in Korean all the way.
    It is really crazy, who the hell finds her?

      She translated that he is very heathy :) actually Dir Bong kept grumbling he found many parts of his body creak then he regretted what he said and asked her to translate that he is just healthy.

    If he makes another hollywood movie again, I will be very interested. Imagine if he makes a DC black label movie. Best comic movie again for DC and Warner Brothers.

    • FramesPerSecond
      FramesPerSecond 20 days ago

      TOSHIO DS he actually hasn’t done a Hollywood film yet. Snowpiercer technically was an independent movie and a Korean co-production with several European countries. It would be great from him to do a Hollywood film but I wouldn’t want it to be a superhero movie tbh. Blockbusters don’t just have to be based on comic books!
