Synopsis
Director Back Seung-kee has presented a new world that he refers to as a "C-class movie", that surpasses "B-class" with its unique sensitivity and humor. This time, he challenges travel across time, space, and dimension with the expanded world and scale. Gi-dong is an exploration crew member of ASA (not NASA), aka Asia Space Administration. He leaves ASA to raise his daughter, Gyoo-jin, after his wife and colleague, Seon-ho, dies during childbirth. One day, he has a mysterious experience meeting Seon-ho from a different dimension and decides to go back to space to search for her. He boards the secret spacecraft, "Super Nova", based on the blueprints left behind by Seon-ho. "Super Nova" creates excitement from the title. It is the story of people who seek precious memories or existences beyond the boundaries of time and space. The most spectacular special effects of the film are expected but don't worry. The moment you witness the reality of the secret space ship, "Super Nova", the director's fans will be relieved by its appearance. (MO Eun-young)


"Time To Read Poems" (2016)

Directed by Lee Soo-jung

Synopsis
The warm consolation I give you, the time you face me completely.

Five people living in Seoul talk about their anxieties for the first time. Their voices in front of the camera are like reading a poem. A woman in her 30s is worried about whether to endure a hard life by taking medicine, a worker who worked like a machine without thinking of another choice, a man in his 50s who has been suffering from panic disorder for more than 20 years, a man who seeks stability in games rather than an uneasy reality, and a woman who equates her hatred and discrimination with the pain of all the weak.

They are in different situations, but they look at themselves in the face of uncertainty and miserable reality.
