Go Go 70 prepares to premiere
(Does anyone else hear the words “Go go” and find yourself immediately tempted to singsong out, “…Power Rangers!”?)
The three leads of the disco-era movie Go Go 70 (Jo Seung-woo, Shin Mina, and Cha Seung-woo) came out to promote their new film on September 19.
In the film, Jo Seung-woo apparently performed all songs himself — he plays a rocker fronting a band — and found his numerous stage experiences in musicals helpful: “It wasn’t very difficult filming the performance scenes. I wasn’t required to follow the camera. We filmed as though they were real concerts,” with multiple cameras fixed in various spots to capture the unfolding events: “All I had to do was enjoy myself.”
Shin Mina, on the other hand, had this to say about her dance- and singing-heavy role (for which she trained for three months leading up to shooting): “It was a difficult process from the start. … I felt pressure working with Jo Seung-woo, too.” Having never danced in any of her prior roles before, she felt shy at the outset, but found her groove (we hope) as filming progressed.
The movie opens October 2.
