During the press release on March 14, director Kim Kyu Tae stated, "Noh Hee Kyung and I are not a good match" and joked about their relationship. He then added, "Once again, I am in awe from seeing the result of her work. I really hope that we can express her writing effectively. We rehearse countless times before we film but it is still very hard. She is such a difficult writer. We would be good as long as us, the production crew, can do our job correctly."
However, another crucial factor in the success of the drama is the quality of the scenes. Director Kim Kyu Tae added, "In order to make the emotions of the characters more dramatically, we use a lot of close up shots."
He added, "The reason we are able to create beautiful shots is because both Jo In Sung and Song Hye kyo are beautiful people" and "They are beautiful whether we do a full shot or a tight shot. I feel like I'm getting praised because of how beautiful they are" and became very shy. Kim Kyu Tae also stated, "I'm just able to film beautiful things as much as I want."
Regarding the drama, director Kim Kyu Tae stated, "The tone of the drama itself is very heavy so I thought the viewers may get very frustrated. So I thought the only way to soften up and relax the drama is to capture beautiful scenes." He mentioned that he is focusing on the artistic side of the scenes and places great importance on colors.
"The original scenes are very different from the ones that are aired on television."
Director Kim Kyu Tae also stated, "I wanted to try something new and fresh for the remaining episodes of the drama. I think this drama is a bit more detailed," He mentioned that the colors are not emphasized during the filming process because he wants the editing crew to bring out the colors he wants. "If you see the actual scenes before editing, the colors and textures are completely different. You would be surprised."
Currently, the cast and crew of "That Winter, The Wind Blows" are in the process of filming the 13th to 15th episodes. Director Kim Kyu Tae stated, "I think we will be done with everything about two days before the last episode is about to air. However, there will be an epilogue scene in the last episode. I think the script for this will be released right before the episode airs."
Lastly, he mentioned, "You can expect great things since the love story between the two main characters have officially started. We want to keep breaking a lot of hearts in the future."
