Nam Gyuri was Cast as Zombie in ‘Mad Sad Bad’ Because She is Pretty
Director Han Ji Seung shared the story behind casting Nam Gyuri as a zombie.
During the press conference for film Mad Sad Bad, held on May 9 at the Wangshimni CGV, director Han Ji Seung said, “I wondered which actress could still be pretty even with the zombie make-up on.” Nam Gyuri acted as zombie ‘Siwa’ in the part directed by Han Ji Seung in the three-part omnibus movie.
Director Han said, “I needed an actress who has an innocent image and can still show off her features even with the thick make up, an actress who has pretty eyes. Putting all these together, I thought Nam Gyuri was the most fit for the role.”
He also added, “She also transformed into a robot in director Chang’s music video and her artificial, yet humanist image added to the reason behind the casting.”
Nam Gyuri said, “I was more worried about acting itself rather than having to put on zombie make up. But I had my trust in the director after talking with him and was able to film satisfactorily.”
Meanwhile, Mad Sad Bad is an omnibus movie with three parts called ‘Ghost,’ ‘I saw you,’ and ‘Picnic.’ The film will premiere on May 15.
