SEOUL, Feb. 2 (Yonhap) — Lucid dreaming is an elusive state in which you consciously know you are dreaming. Unlike a regular dream where there is no control over what you experience, a lucid dream offers you the possibility to control your surroundings.
The upcoming Korean sci-fi thriller “Lucid Dream” tells the story of a father who slips into his own dreams with help from a psychiatrist to locate his little boy kidnapped three years ago and find clues to track down his captor.
“The term ‘lucid dream’ may sound strange, but you may have experienced the phenomenon at least once without knowing,” rookie director Kim Joon-sung said during a news conference for the film at a CGV theater in southern Seoul.
