In other film companies, Jung Hyuk-jae is a spoiler, but in the eyes of the same director and Screenwriter, Jung Hyuk-jae’s existence is no less than the savior of their career. From the “Welcome to At the beginning of “Dongmakgol”, Park Kwang-hyun, who was hitting the wall with the script in his hand, knocked on the doors of many film production companies, but did not get any response from the film production companies. On the contrary, Jung Hyuk-jae was favored here. The literati met Mingjun.

After the release of “Welcome to Dongmakgol”, Jung Hyuk-jae received countless script plans and projects. Many filmmakers hope that their stories can be on the big screen, but In the absence of contacts and funds, Jung Hyuk-jae is obviously their first choice. After all, it seems to be similar to those film companies that are cold or even aloof and remote. Apart from this, Jung Hyuk-jae has devoted great efforts to youth film and television support over the years, especially for the university’s film clubs. For youngster Jung Hyuk-jae, a special youth film and television support fund has been established, so don’t look at Jung Hyuk- Jae is hated by many film production companies, but among this group of future filmmakers, Jung Hyuk-jae is very adored by this group of youngsters.

“I watched “Lao Qian” directed by President Zheng many times in the theater.”

Everyone at the wine table began to talk to each other, Jung Hyuk-jae on the left hand side A middle-aged man held up the wine glass in his hand and toasted and said, “I toast President Zheng. Although the number of viewers at the box office at the end of “Lao Qian” is not a breakthrough of tens of millions, it is still a good and sincere work.”

The middle-aged man in front of him knew Jung Hyuk-jae. He thought he was a free screenwriter and graduated from the Department of Literature of Seoul University of the Arts. Although its name is stated, ordinary person will not be known, but in many movies, He appears in TV dramas, and he also touches on stage plays and dramas. Jung Hyuk-jae picked up the wine on the table, and the two of them lightly touched their wine glasses. Jung Hyuk-jae smiled and opened the mouth and said,” I’m just kidding, it’s mainly comic works, which have a high degree of topicality among the audience.”

“Hey…This is President Zheng, you are too humble.” One person spoke, and everyone followed up.

“That is, to be able to adapt the comics to the big screen, such a sincere work to achieve such results is naturally as it should be by rights.”

Everyone laughed Then, Jung Hyuk-jae responded with a smile one after another, and said nothing more.

As a gathering of film practitioners, everyone will naturally exchange some unique information during the meal, such as which company has received which script and plans to start production, and which company has begun to receive what type The script is out.

Like all regions of the film industry, whenever a type of movie becomes popular, there are always a group of people rushing to make movies of the same type, such as JHJ Entertainment, which is still in theaters recently. Many small studio film production companies have begun to accept scripts for this kind of comedy love movie “The Trouble of Beauty”, and they want to catch the last train of “The Trouble of Beauty”. Larger film production companies have Their own detailed production plan has a clear preparation from market trend consultation to pre-coordination, and will not do so, but will also do a deeper analysis of the reasons behind the popularity of such movies.

“I heard that under the sponsorship of the Youth Film and Television Support Fund established by President Zheng, a short film shot by a student of Yonsei University was nominated for an international award?” At this time, a person at the wine table told the latest news. After hearing this person’s words, everyone’s eyes fell on Jung Hyuk-jae, wanting to get a more accurate answer from him.

For this news, Jung Hyuk-jae only learned about it in the morning. The original youth film and television support fund would choose one or two or several young film and television scripts every year to give funds to help filming. Most of these are short-form movies. Jung Hyuk-jae will put these not-so-sophisticated movies in his own theaters, not for money, but to help this group of young filmmakers.

Although Jung Hyuk-jae can’t be called excellent, he definitely has to work harder than anyone else, trying to enrich himself and running forward, regardless of whether there are other film companies behind him or not, Jung Hyuk -jae did not give up.

The Youth Film and Television Support Fund was personally organized by Jung Hyuk-jae. As the leader of young directors, he founded a fund specifically for young filmmakers. Lee Joon-ik also admired it.

“Whether we win or lose, this is a huge encouragement to young filmmakers, isn’t it?” One of them raised his glass and said with emotion, “If we were young when we were able to have such a If the support fund helps, let’s walk sideways on Chungmuru Road now?”
