The documentary takes a dig into Bong's unreleased Looking For Paradise. He made it during his university days. The documentary's focus will be on Bong's creative aspects, and it will also shed light on the era when young filmmakers rose from South Korea.

The mid-1990s were an exciting phase in South Korea. There was a sudden shift from Military representation into the creative field.

Busan International Film Festival was one of the rule breakers and innovators at the time. It banned Japanese movies and CJ Entertainment and paved the way for the Korean film industry. It had investments in multiplex and Dreamworks.

The new music acts and talent agents imported foreign music and sounded today's most popular KPop music.
