In the first two weeks of the year, Girls’ Generation’s ‘Kampung’ film was released to much acclaim.
But it didn’t just make a splash in Korea, it was the first film from a Korean film that was also released in the US, and it became a sensation, winning awards and making a fortune.
It also sparked an incredible amount of interest in materials for women.
‘Kunsan’ was made by the makers of the hit TV show ‘Jungkooks’, the production company of Girls’ GK Entertainment.
And ‘Momentive’ is a momentous performance materials film from Girls’ BTS.
So how did this film make such a splash?
A lot of people thought the film was just a silly gag.
But when it came out on the big screen, it changed how people think about materials for girls.
It made them realise the power of materials.
“You can have a moment where you have no material and your whole world is made from material,” says Kim Jin-hyeon, the executive director of the Korea Institute for Material Science.
It was a moment for a lot of young women.
The film is a perfect example of how materials can be used to transform the way girls think about their lives.
“In the first movie, you’re a little girl, but in this movie, the story is about the development of your world,” Kim says.
The story of a girl who has to find her place in the world was something many people thought was just another giggle-fest.
“This film really changed the way people see materials, because we see materials as an object of the moment,” Kim continues.
“I think this film changed people’s minds about materials.”
The film also changed the industry.
“It’s a big change from the way that materials are used in today,” Kim adds.
“The way materials are made is changing.”
The producers of the film, who worked on it for two years, had a lot in common.
“We worked together for two-and-a-half years, and we all came up with the same idea, to make a film about materials,” Kim recalls.
The movie was a hit in South Korea, where it was made with a budget of US$2.4 million and had its first release in the country in October 2017.
It won a number of awards and was nominated for the prestigious Academy Awards, including best foreign language film.
Kim says the film became a success because of its originality.
“Our idea was to make this film that would be very funny, and to have fun,” she says.
It’s not that we thought ‘we have to make funny jokes.’ “
So the idea for ‘Moments’ came about in the end.
It’s not that we thought ‘we have to make funny jokes.’
It’s just that we needed a film that could be made by anyone and that could have a lot more impact.”
Kim is confident the film will have a bigger impact in the future.
“If we had made it in Korea in 2016, we wouldn’t have gotten a big audience.
But now, we know that people can relate to it and that people want to see more from materials,” she explains.
“People want to know more about materials.
And that’s what we really wanted to do.
So I think this is going to be a big success.”
The impact of materials On the inside of the films’ scenes, you’ll see a huge number of women in costume.
“Women are always a big part of our story,” Kim explains.
In the original movie, there was only one female character.
Now, there are three.
And each one has a very different story.
“What is the reason for that?
There are different stories about these characters.
For example, the one that you meet the first time is different from the one you meet her later,” Kim laughs.
And for girls, there’s a different story about how to make materials.
Kim adds that the materials in the film are not just for girls and women.
“When I was in Korea a lot, the production crew would take their materials and bring them back and then they would be put into the wardrobe and made into costumes,” she recalls.
“That’s the way materials for the women are used.”
It’s this kind of creativity that helps Girls’ generation change the way they think about the world.
Kim points out that the film’s makers, BTS, who won the best actress award at the Oscars for their performance, are also responsible for creating a new generation of girls.
“BTS is a group of artists.
They are making films and creating music.
They’re all creative, but they also have their own ideas about how things are supposed to look,” Kim reveals.
“They want to make sure that materials for young women are made in
