Most Anticipated Korean Films of 2016

26. Lucid Dream
루시드 드림
Dir: Kim Joon-sung 1st Film)
Cast: Seol Kyung-gu (Peppermint Candy, 1999), Ko Soo (The Front Line, 2011)
Production: Road Pictures
Distribution: Contents Panda (Next Entertainment World)
Filming Dates: 2015-04-06 ~ 2015-06-29
Status: Post-Production
Genre: Thriller

Plot: A man loses his son and a friend suggest he take up lucid dreaming to cope with the grief. Soon, he believes the new technique could help him trace his son’s disappearance.

What to expect: Concept is interesting, but it doesn’t really change the fact that this has another kidnapped/lost child thriller with Seol Kyung-gu, granted at least he isn’t the father here. We’ll just have to see how debut director Kim Joon-sung acquits himself behind the lens with this one.

When can we see it? Film should be ready by now so it depends on when NEW think they’ll get the most bang for their buck. A spring/early summer slot is a strong possibility.
