Synopsis

Director's Note
I've never considered making films as a director even though I have produced 10 feature films for 10 years since I built a film company of mine 'CHUNG-NYUN INDEPENDENT FILMS.' Suddenly, I am eager to direct films in fall, 2007.
After that day, I have been interested in making films as a director and I made 'Boy meets Boy' reflected by my childhood finally.
