Design Overview

‘The King's Case Note’ is a comic historical drama dealing with traditional science investigation. This film is an adaptation of a famous comic book, but the character’s setting was changed. Specifically, age and appearance of main characters, so that many of the comic books fans were disappointed. Also, at the beginning of the marketing plan, it was hard to attract the audience’s attention because the actors were not very popular at that time. We decided to hide the relationship with the original comic books as much as possible and focused instead on interesting scenes in the film such as the traditional science investigation and adventure. Also, we emphasized the relationship between the main characters as a buddy movie because they had a great on-screen chemistry in this film. As a result, this film reached about 1 million viewers.
