Behind-the-Scenes of Park Chan-wook’s PARANMANJANG

On-the-set featurette for the 30-minute short film - PARANMANJANG (Night Fishing / 파란만장) from Park Chan-wook (JSA, Old Boy, Thirst), which made on a budget of 150 million won ($133,000) and shot using the iPhone 4. Park made the short with his younger brother Park Chan-kyong, also a director.

The short is a fantastical tale that begins with a middle-aged man fishing one afternoon and then, hours later at night, catches the body of a woman. The panicked man tries to undo the intertwined fishing line, but he gets more and more entangled. He faints, then wakes up to find himself in the white clothes that the woman was wearing. The movie’s point of view then shifts to the woman and it becomes a tale of life and death from a traditional Korean point of view.
