As far as the film is concerned, its director’s previous works that are touching and exquisite are: Sonata Kaze no Ue, Whisper of the Heart, and Thirst. Like what the film is exactly aiming for, he has already given us a splendid example with his first, Shibakana Boys as well as Dr. Akagi.
The background of Inflationary Japan depicts Japan’s day-to-day life on the verge of bankruptcy, causing the political system to churn as the nation puts on a variety of illegal measures to stabilize finances. People instantly recognize the social issue depicted by the film, for it is exactly the one that unites them.
The Architecture 101 series is loosely based on a short film by the same director, starring Lee Je-hoon, Han Ga-in and Lee Je-hoon, and released in 2006. The original idea was to transform a drama into a documentary, and this resulted in K-Pop bubblegum music and fashion-forward clothing, which is what makes it a comedy mixed with romance (although this isn't the aim of the series).
To reflect the heart of the story, the directors chose to make the series into a self-reflective narrative. In addition to being a story about love, it is also a story about architecture. Their aim was to empower people to think about their futures by showing them the hope of achieving something bigger than themselves. 7211a4ac4a
