Singapore, 7 Jul 2005 -- April Snow, directed by Hur Jin Ho was completed on 18th June after five months of filming.
The last day of filming took place on Joongbu Highway. It was the scene where In-su (Bae Yong Joon) was driving on the highway heading to Samcheok hospital in the early morning after he received news that his wife has had an accident. In order to finish the shoot within the scheduled time, all the crew members were kept busy the entire night spraying artificial snow for this scene. It was not easy as the artificial snow stuck strongly to the windscreen of the car and they had to work through the night till 4am to make the scene right.
Bae Yong Joon is looking forward to seeing how the movie will turn out now that the filming has ended. In his previous projects, he felt relieved after the filming process was completed. For April Snow, he felt like filming was never going to end as he bears even greater expectations for this film than any of his previous projects.
On 16th June, two days prior to the completion of the movie, Bae Yong Joon had personally prepared gifts and autographed photos for over 80 of the crew members to thank them for their hard work and their sincere devotion towards April Snow. He said that he felt as if the crew members were like his own family.
The lead actress of April Snow, Son Ye Jin (Seo-young), finished her scenes a few days earlier than Bae Yong Joon. Her last scene was where In-su sends Seo-young home after a date in Seoul. At the end of filming, as much as she was happy, she also felt sad.
The hottest romantic couple on screen, Bae Yong Joon and Son Ye Jin are presently taking a short break after shooting April Snow. However, it will not be a long break due to the hectic schedule coming up ahead for the preparation of the theatrical release of April Snow.
The most anticipated Korean film of 2005, April Snow, will open in Singapore cinemas on 13 October.
