‘Lucid Dream’’s director, Director Kim Joon-sung, explained about Park Yuchun’s character role.
The movie ‘Lucid Dream’ (directed by Kim Joon-sung, produced by Road Pictures) held a press screening and its press conference at CGV Wangsimni in Haengdang-dong, Seongdong-gu, Seoul on the 15th. At the location, lead actors Go Soo and Sol Kyung-gu, and Kang Hye-jung participated; together with Director Kim Joon-sung.
In the film Park Yuchun undertook the part of ‘This Man’, a mysterious man who is discovered when he appeared in ‘Dae-ho’(Go Soo)’s dreams. He plays a role as the presence who lets Dae-ho know about the existence of shared-dreaming.
Director Kim Joon-sung, who undertook the directing of ‘Lucid Dream’, spoke about actor Park Yuchun: “‘This Man’ himself in the lucid dreams is a popular, interesting character for dream-maniacs,” and, “‘This Man’ is needed to explain lucid dreams and shared-dreaming. Park Yuchun did well serving as a medium. I think he’s good at disappearing and appearing (in the film)”.
The movie is a memory-trace SF thriller where Dae-ho (Go Soo) –a reporter who specializes in the corruption charges of large conglomerates– uses ‘lucid dreams’ to look for his son who was deliberately kidnapped 3 years prior, and chases after the criminal by finding clues inside hidden memories.
‘Lucid dreaming’ refers to whether you perceive the fact it is a dream in the midst of you having a dream, being aware of the fact it is a dream from the beginning, or when a person controls his/her dream while he/she is having a dream in the first place.
‘Lucid Dream’ will open this [February] 22nd.
