‘Body movement composer’ is a title that can easily be spotted in the ending credit of foreign movies. They arrange the movements of zombies or in bed scenes as well as design the movement by wearing motion capture devices like in the film ‘Planet of the Apes.’ Park Je-in is the first body movement composer to be listed in the ending credit of a Korean movie. Park was the one who designed the memorable performances in the film ‘The Wailing.’ Park had crafted movements for Hwang Jung-min, who performed the ritual as a shaman, Kim Hwan-hee to contort her body when possessed by an evil entity, and Kunimura Jun to crawl on the ground with his arms. As her role in the film was new in the Korean film industry, her title was labeled in ‘The Wailing’ as a choreographer. But she finally gained her rightful and well-deserved title as a ‘Body movement composer’ on the back of her contributions to the movie ‘Train to Busan,’ where she directed and managed the zombie chasing sequences. We listen to the film story of Korea’s first body movement composer Park Je-in.
