This drama dealed with an affair about the problem of the strong and the weak, and, of the normal state and the irregularity in a life regarding as ‘the uncomfortable truth’. To do this, this drama organise a system for a construction and a presentation of an image that is able to draw a social consensus. In this drama, a construction and a display of a shot, a frame and a point of view is concerned to a thematic sense. Therefore this study focus on an analysis of these units to research a thematic sense. First, a shot is concentrated to form an image of ‘an extinction’ and ‘be locked’. For this, it is used by a over-the-shoulder shot, a division of scene and a space etc to present an extinction about a communication between a character and character, between a character and a world. Especially, it is used by a technic of editing and camera working to recall an unsolvable problem of past. This helps a viewer come in a fictional world. By the way, second, unstable camera construct a third gaze as an indivisual of an organic body. And a camera construct not only an image of devil but also a point of view of hell. As soon as a crain shot as a point of view of heavens is formed, after breaking a point of view of hell, unstable state turn into a stable state. A construction and a display of a shot, frame, a point of view is the root and the system to present an image. In this, it is intervened in an ideology, an intention and a plan by a producer. This drama transformed pre-sense of a shot into a new formation to draw a thematic sense.
