YesAsia Editorial Description

Directed by Lee Yong Joo (Possessed), Architecture 101 turned into one of Korea's biggest movies of 2012 with its gently nostalgic story of first love revisited. Han Ga In (The Classic) and Uhm Tae Woong (SIU) star as the college sweethearts who cross paths again years later. The film alternates between the protagonists' present-day reencounter and memories of ambiguous puppy love back in the nineties. The younger counterparts are played by two of last year's breakout young stars, Lee Je Hoon (Bleak Night, Front Line) and miss A member Bae Suzy (Dream High). Selling over four million tickets, Architecture 101 was such a big hit, it even inspired a nineties nostalgia trend in Korea.

Architect Seung Min (Uhm Tae Woong) gets an unexpected visit one day by Seo Yeon (Han Ga In), his first love whom he hasn't seen in many years. Seo Yeon came by especially to ask him to redesign her home in Jeju, and she won't take no for an answer. The two first met 15 years ago in Architecture 101, back when Seung Min (Lee Je Hoon) was a naive university student smitten with headstrong Seo Yeon (Suzy). Both then and now, the two friends grow closer and closer even as life's crossroads pull them in different directions.

This edition comes with commentary, deleted scenes, making-of, interview, trailer, and teaser.

PRODUCTION NOTE
영화 속 또 다른 주인공, ‘서연’의 제주도 집
9주 간의 촬영기간 동안 3단 변신 감행!
영화 <건축학개론>에 등장하는 ‘집’은 단순히 영화 속 배경이 아닌 또 다른 주인공이라 할 수 있다. 이용주 감독의 시나리오 속에 항상 ‘공란’으로 되어 있던 집 설계 과정은 구승회 건축 수퍼바이저의 합류로 구체화될 수 있었다. 극 중 ‘서연’이 태어나고 자란 고향이자, 떠난 지 15년 만에 다시 돌아와 새 출발을 위한 집을 짓게 되는 곳 제주도. 그곳에 세트처럼 보이는 것이 아니라 진짜 ‘살고 싶은 집’의 느낌을 살리기 위해 바다가 내려다 보이는 위미리 마을에 평범하고 오래된 단층 양옥집을 ‘서연’의 집으로 선택했다. <건축학개론>은 집을 짓는 과정과 함께 첫사랑의 기억으로 얽혀 있는 두 주인공 ‘승민’과 ‘서연’ 두 사람이 새로운 감정을 쌓아가는 모습을 고스란히 담아내는 영화의 색다른 프로덕션 컨셉에 따라 9주간 서울과 제주도를 오가는 빡빡한 촬영 스케줄 속에 실제 집을 짓는 미션을 감행해야만 했다.
구승회 건축 수퍼바이저가 이용주 감독에게 처음 제안한 계획은 낡은 집을 영화 속 ‘서연’의 표현대로 ‘싹 다 밀고, 있어 보이게’ 디자인하기 위해 집 전체를 허무는 것이었다. 하지만 이용주 감독은 집이 가진 세월의 기억들을 남기는 방식으로 지붕과 기둥을 허물지 않는 것을 고수했다. 새로운 집의 설계 도면과 모델들을 보고 살던 집 같지 않다며 낯설어 하는 ‘서연’을 위해 ‘승민’은 재건축이 아닌, ‘증축’ 방식을 제안하듯, 제주도 ‘서연’의 집은 촬영기간 동안, 거실을 트고 벽면을 바다가 액자처럼 펼쳐지는 폴딩도어로 마감한 멋진 모습으로의 탈바꿈을 준비했다. 크랭크업을 앞두고 ‘서연’ 집의 마지막 변신은, ‘승민’이 ‘서연’을 위해 새롭게 마련한 2층 공간이다. 2층 서연 방 앞에 발코니처럼 펼쳐진 잔디 마당은 ‘서연’의 마음을 어루만져줄 제주도의 바다가 한눈에 내려다보이는 절경이 펼쳐진다.


첫사랑의 기억이 떠오르는 메인 삽입곡 [기억의 습작] 등
90년대 추억의 아이템이 곳곳에!
스무 살 ‘서연’이 ‘승민’에게 건넨 이어폰 한 쪽에서 [기억의 습작]이 흘러나온다. CD플레이어가 돌아가고, ‘서연’은 노래를 흥얼거리고, 그런 ‘서연’의 모습을 보면서 ‘승민’은 설레는 감정을 느끼게 된다. 1994년 발매된 전람회의 1집 ‘Exhibition’ 삽입곡인 [기억의 습작]은 감성 발라드의 대표 주자 김동률의 목소리를 통해 영화의 감성을 한층 더 풍부하게 만들어준다. [기억의 습작]은 가슴 한 켠에 묻어둔 첫사랑의 기억을 다시 한번 떠올리게 할 <건축학개론>의 비장의 카드이다. 또한 90년대를 풍미한 그룹 015B의 [신 인류의 사랑]이 캠퍼스 문화와 어우러져 관객들의 향수를 자극할 예정이다. 음악 외에도 과거 에피소드에는 삐삐, 헤어 무스 등 시대 고유의 매력을 전하는 아이템들이 대거 등장한다. 이제훈, 수지 두 배우들도 화려한 스타일 대신 풋풋함이 느껴지는 스무 살 대학생 룩을 완벽 소화했다. “90년대를 재현하는 적당한 선을 찾는데 고민을 많이 했다. 개인적으로 옛날 물건들에 담겨있는 기억들 때문에 버리지 못하고 갖고 있는 것들도 있고, 그 시절을 그리워하는 사람들도 분명히 많을 것이라고 생각된다”고 밝힌 이용주 감독은 아련한 추억뿐만 아니라 동시대의 공감을 끌어내며, 시대를 관통하는 ‘첫사랑’의 감성과 아날로그 정서를 풍부하게 그려냈다.


아날로그 정서가 드러나는 도심 속 옛 공간
<건축학개론>이 포착해낸 서울의 재발견!
<건축학개론>의 초고를 쓸 때 이용주 감독은 평생 한 곳에 머물던 남자 그리고 계속 떠돌아 다니던 여자가 10여 년 후 다시 만나, 떠돌던 여자는 이제 정착을 준비하고 머물렀던 남자는 떠나는 준비를 한다는 컨셉을 머릿속에 구상했다. 극 중 정릉 토박이 ‘승민’, 그리고 고향 제주도를 떠나 정릉 친척집에 잠시 머무는 ‘서연’, 두 사람은 우연히 발견한 동네 빈집에서 풋풋한 데이트를 시작하지만, ‘서연’이 꿈에 그리던 강남 개포동 반지하방으로 독립하면서 버스 710번 남쪽의 종점과 북쪽의 종점의 먼 거리만큼 둘의 관계에도 변화가 생긴다.
또한 <건축학개론>이 담아낸 서울 도심 로케이션은 일상적으로 경험해온 곳곳의 재발견을 예고한다. 평범한 듯 하지만 옛 정취가 살아있는 정릉과 창신동 골목길, ‘승민’과 ‘서연’의 감정이 켜켜이 쌓여가듯 세월의 흔적을 고스란히 담고 있는 누하동 한옥집, ‘승민’과 어머니의 삶의 터전을 그려낸 수유동의 시장 골목 등은 스크린을 통해 사연을 지닌 흥미로운 공간으로 재탄생 했다. 건축학도 출신으로서 ‘집을 짓는 것만큼, 공간을 바라 보는 것’이 좋았다는 이용주 감독이 그려낸 <건축학개론>의 공간미학을 짚어보는 것도 관객들의 중요한 관람 포인트가 될 것이다.

SYNOPSIS
어쩌면…사랑할 수 있을까?
건축학개론 수업에서 그녀를 처음 만났다
생기 넘치지만 숫기 없던 스무 살, 건축학과 승민은 '건축학개론' 수업에서 처음 만난 음대생 서연에게 반한다. 함께 숙제를 하게 되면서 차츰 마음을 열고 친해지지만, 자신의 마음을 표현하는 데 서툰 순진한 승민은 입 밖에 낼 수 없었던 고백을 마음 속에 품은 채 작은 오해로 인해 서연과 멀어지게 된다.

어쩌면 다시…사랑할 수 있을까?
15년 만에 그녀를 다시 만났다
서른 다섯의 건축사가 된 승민 앞에 15년 만에 불쑥 나타난 서연. 당황스러움을 감추지 못하는 승민에게 서연은 자신을 위한 집을 설계해달라고 한다. 자신의 이름을 건 첫 작품으로 서연의 집을 짓게 된 승민, 함께 집을 완성해 가는 동안 어쩌면 사랑이었을지 모를 그때의 기억이 되살아나 두 사람 사이에 새로운 감정이 쌓이기 시작하는데…

Nostalgic for the nineties
Is it too soon to be nostalgic for the nineties? Not according to the blockbuster success of Architecture 101, a nostalgic romance about first love set in the nineties and the present-day. The film has turned into the highest-grossing Korean romantic melodrama of all time with over four million admissions. And it didn't even have to kill anyone.

The gentle look back at a time period that is both close yet far away is no doubt part of what makes Architecture 101 strike such an emphatic chord with audiences. The young, hesitant, plodding romance between two friends - the reticent Seung Min and the willful Seo Yeon - is the kind of sincere coming-of-age story that we gladly watch over and over again. Simple period details, like pagers, Discmans, and (fake) Guess T-shirts, bring knowing smiles to faces, as does the fond familiarity of university classrooms, quiet streets, and traditional courtyard homes.

The nineties portion of the film takes on a warm and muted veneer, dusty memories that shine soft and bright on screen. In contrast, when yesterday's sweethearts meet as older but perhaps no wiser adults in the present day, there is a cold modernity to the environment and cinematography that looks beautiful but feels far less hospitable. The contrast is very effective in further romanticizing that unforgettable tale of first love and first heartbreak. The younger actors, Lee Je Hoon and Suzy, actually outshine their more experienced counterparts, Uhm Tae Woong and Han Ga In, in the film, if only because the nineties side of the story is simply much more compelling.

Architecture 101 may be a Korean romantic melodrama, but it doesn't have any of the tragedy and tearjerking often associated with the genre. Director Lee Yong Joo takes a decidedly mellow route with the story and characters, and the film is all the stronger by being sweet and subtle in its bittersweet depiction of first love and first heartbreak, and grounded and realistic in its depiction of the possible present-day rekindling. Nothing grand may happen in Architecture 101, but it does a fine cinematic job of evoking heartbeats and heartaches and quietly bringing the audience back to the nostalgic nineties, back to memories of that one who got away.

Architect of First Love Pain (A) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Hard working architect Seung-min (Tae-woong Uhm) is one day propositioned by Seo-yeon (Ga-in Han) to design and re-build her a large house to replace a derelict home on the coastal edge of Jeju island. A place Seo-yeon desires as a final resting home for her hospitalised and terminally sick father. But Seo-yeon is also the long lost first love of Seung-min from both of their university days. At first Seung-min is reluctant to take on Seo-yeon’s project, but with approval from his hierarchical superiors, Seung-min gets the go ahead to design Seo-yeon’s home. But with Seung-min himself weeks away from getting married to a woman he works with, he remains unwilling to help Seo-yeon. This main reluctance relates to Seung-min’s deja vu feelings towards Seo-yeon and the heartbreak he experienced in his student days. Seung-min had loved Seo-yeon too much and found himself torn by a cruel misunderstanding of fate. In youth Seo-yeon was always determined to live in a big two-story dream house and have two children and a dog. Then Seung-min imagined he could design and build Seo-yeon’s dream home and even had created a prototype model. As Seo-yeon shared her favourite song with him, by splitting her headphones, Seung-min felt maybe love between them could blossom. But Seo-yeon’s dream didn’t totally suggest to Seung-min that her shared life would be with him. After all, Seo-yeon had feelings for Jea-wook (Yeon-seok Yoo) an architect major in Seung-min’s study class and although studying music, Seo-yeon joined the architect study to be in the same class as Jea-wook.

Coincidentally Seung-min shared student digs with Jea-wook and began to learn that he also had interests in Seo-yeon. Seung-min though often talked with his long time school friend (Jeong-seok Jo), a cool dude with plenty of dating ‘advice’ (generally eccentric scenarios on how Seung-min could ‘woo’ Seo-yeon’s heart). Seo-yeon though did share ‘possibility’ days with Seung-min, like when she asked him to visit her new student digs, on her November birthday when both walked on railway lines, where Seo-yeon first told Seung-min of her dream home. Even agreeing to both meet again on 1st day of snow. But Seung-min considered her ambitions met more with Jea-wook’s architectural talent and character calibre, but Seung-min still wished to design Seo-yeon’s dream house; his model a secret expression of love. Now 15 years on, Seo-yeon returns to Seung-min’s life and past hurtful memories flood back.

Architect of First Love Pain (B) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
First love heartbreak isn’t as nasty as having a tooth pulled, but not far off, and I’d hope most wouldn’t need to suffer “Architecture 101” teen love angst. Love and dating is supposed to be bliss, and it really is, albeit in a parallel world. But here on planet earth 101 it’s stymied by immense social complexity, personal desire and hierarchical aspiration. Not to mention a guy needing a healthy bank account to buy his lady 1,001 pair of shoes as well as a big cushty house to make even Lara Croft jealous. Anyway, although I anticipated by the 101 part of the title, a mysterious symbolic sacred architecture aspect, “Architecture 101” is totally a story about reminiscing of first love and heartbreak. So no Captain Scarlet and the Mysterones ‘Crater 101’ here, I’m afraid...lol. Architectural building plan blueprints and job done isn’t exactly the importance of this movie either, as mending deep and sweetly painful first love heartbreak is beyond materialism. The student flashback roles are played well by Je-hoon and Suzy of Miss A/Dream High. But both sets of roles convey well painful separation (Tae-woong and Ga-in thumby uppy, too), but the student flashbacks show the crucial interplay between Seung-min and Seo-yeon; how they first met, got to know each other, date, first crafty kiss and befallen to that old ‘mountain out of a mole hill’ heartbreak scenario (or satellite station out of a look out tower, for architectural difference), as parallel times and love hurt circumstance collide.

“Architecture 101” relates excellently to first date romance. Setting hearts too high on separate levels (a dream home and a dream girl) and any fella watching this who ever dated a girl and wondered how that girl felt about him, will feel quivery emo, especially to Seung-min and Seo-yeon’s rail line walk and secret ‘kiss’. This is more than anything a sweetly sad love story of reminiscence, ambition and hurt. But painful to watch Seung-min (Je-hoon) crestfallen at his perceived ‘betrayal’ by Seo-yeon. Again Suzy acts well as a softly spoken girl with strong ambition and manages to touch your heartstrings, too. Miss S is sure making headways in acting. Deja vu concerning Dream High, too, by the sharing of earphones for a romantic song. No doubt Tae-woong and Ga-in are just right for these characters (like ‘em both), but Je-hoon and Suzy would win the young S Koreans over, as they’ll identify with those first love years. Love needs mending, but A101 is good.
