Get Behind the Scenes of Korean Gorilla Baseball Comedy MR. GO

Just yesterday, Showbox unveiled the first teaser for their major summer title Mr. Go via Naver and now, there is a behind-the-scenes video via Daum that features the technical process of creating this CG character and integrating it in a live action environment.  The highlight of the video is the actual footage of the ape stepping up the plate and getting ready to bat.  The quality of the visual effects looks stunningly real.

As mentioned before, the big-budget sports comedy is directed by Kim Yong-hwa (Take Off, 200 Pounds Beauty) and the cast includes Xu Jiao (Starry Starry Night, CJ7) and Sung Dong-il (Take Off, 200 Pounds Beauty).

Synopsis:

Wei Wei grew up in the circus with a bat-swinging gorilla named Ling Ling. After her grandfather dies in the Great Sichuan Earthquake, she has only Ling Ling to depend on. In order to pay her grandfather's debt, she has no choice but to accept sports agent Sung's proposal to bring Ling Ling to the Korean Baseball League. Despite serious doubts and ridicule from the league, Ling Ling, now dubbed 'MR. GO', becomes an instant hit, hitting one home run after another and propelling his floundering team to the playoffs. However, the rise to stardom is met with unexpected troubles and MR. GO must now face adversaries beyond his control.
You'll find the BTS video embedded below.  Mr. Go 3D will be released theatrically in Korea in July.
