It took 5,200 hours of filming, 2,500 participating actors and 500 costumes to produce the 125 minutes of Hunt. Directed by Squid Game’s Lee Jung-jae, the movie was presented at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival at a sold-out screening before receiving a remarkable seven-minute standing ovation.
Set in South Korea in the 1980s during the Cold War, HUNT depicts the pursuit of a spy who has infiltrated the KCIA (Korean Central Intelligence Agency). Rather than provide a cathartic ending to impress the audience, it presents a conflict of beliefs between protagonists Park Pyong-ho and Kim Jung-do, proposing a reflection on whether what we perceive is really the truth.
Taking readers through a story of beliefs and promises, this book presents exclusive imagery, from behind-the-scenes shots and movie stills to photographs taken on set at an array of different locations around the world. It is accompanied by words from Nam Jeong-ho, who narrates the making of HUNT and shares some of the movie’s key scenes alongside compelling anecdotes and unexpected moments.
