Seung-wan’s most ambitious project to date comes to North America
“It's said that during the Cold War, 6 out of 10 people
walking the streets of Berlin were spies.
Although that crushing period has passed, I sense
that tragic history still hanging in the air.
I wanted to tell a story about human beings who
are defined by dangerous secrets bigger than their own lives.”
