In 2003 Prof. SONG Du-Yul decided to go back to his homeland after spending 37 years in Germany in spite arrest warrant had been issued. But within a week he fell from a respected democracy's advocate to the biggest spy ever. This threw Korean society into turmoil of red paranoia. Nobody, even his friends, was free from the dreadful reality. 6 years have passed. Now he IS no longer a spy, but he WAS in 2003. What on earth were his crimes then? And what difference is laid in Korean society between now and then?
Dynamic Korea! Korean society is still breathless. 6 years have passed and the event has been completely forgotten. If it was just a bygone, we don't have to be reminded. I, however, ask; how far has Korea moved on? Prof. Song's event was much challenging to me as a documentary maker. What is surrounding us and how does it work on me? It's painstaking indeed to look into myself. I hope this documentary be a mirror inside to look into ourselves.
