This venture was more than a project; it was a collaborative masterpiece. It is with immense pride that we share the screen with Kim Kkobbi, a luminary in the film industry. Taking on the roles of both cinematographer and post-production wizard, I worked as an editor and colorist to bring this visual narrative to life, cherishing the privilege of collaborating with a star of Kkobbi’s caliber.

In particular, the inclusion of Kim Kkobbi elevates the film, underscoring the universal language of storytelling that transcends borders.
