A mega tsunami strikes Korea

Of the total 3365 cuts in the movie, CGI was applied to 560 cuts. Cuts that required complex skills were over 100 in "Haeundae: The Deadly Tsunami". For comparison, "The Day After Tomorrow" had under 100 CGI cuts. In terms of complexity, the water CGI used in "Haeundae" was challenging even in Hollywood standard. An American CGI specialist, Polygon Entertainment took on the challenge of producing the tremendous special effects of water scenes and to provide the CGI for the picture. Headed by Hans Uhlig, the company’s credit includes the Star Wars series, "The Day After Tomorrow" and "Perfect Storm". "Haeundae" is the birth child of the Hollywood master’s passion and cutting-edge technology. The movie will flood local cinemas on 8 October.
