[Munhwa News MHN reporter Kim Na-rae] Actor Kim Eui-sung, who is loved by many people and stands out as a representative actor in Korea through various works such as 'Extreme Jobs', 'Golden Slumber', '1987', 'Gang Cheol-bi' and 'The King'. He is not only an actor, but also a courageous person who continues to find a protest site against Hong Kong's repatriation law and creates a wave of cheering. He collaborated with reporter Joo Jin-woo, one of the top in exploration report and focuses on power-related corruption, regardless of regime, conclomerate or religion.  The movie 'My Candle, made by them together, is a national documentary about 16 million Koreans who changed the history of  Korea on March 10, 2017.

Kim Eui-sung and Joo Jin-woo, who met while reporting various issues in MBC [Exploration Planning Straight], retrospected the candlelight vigil in 2016, which will forever last in modern Korean history. The unforgettable candlelight rally at the time, which was impossible but made possible, and recordable in world history as a non-violent protest, made the two of them make a movie. Accordingly, Kim Eui-sung made a suggestion to Joo Jin-woo first, and the two who failed to find a professional director eventually became ‘directors’ and entered the full-scale composition.

Kim Eui-sung and Joo Jin-woo, who became the 'director', gathered the puzzles of candlelight vigil 2016, and interviewed people who participated in the candlelight vigils at the time, such as Ko Young-tae, Park Young-soo, Son Seok-hee, Sim Sang-jeong, Yoo Si-min, Yun Seok-yeol, and Chu Mi-ae.  As a novice director, everything was not an easy process, such as filming, editing, and recruiting a place, which took 2 years to complete the whole process. Director Kim Eui-sung and Joo Jin-woo said, “When I first planned this work, it was not easy to recruit a director. So in the end we did it ourselves. I thought it would be simple to make it well, but it was not really easy. I respected all the directors in the world. Although it will be insufficient, I did not give up to the end because I did not want to forget that time", expressing his will and affection for the work.

Movie 'My Candle', the national documentary which first recorded the miracle caused by the candlelight of the people,  will be released in March.
