In Lucid Dream, a father loses his child due to a kidnapping. In order to find the evidence connected to the incident, the father receives the help of an aid to follow the steps of the suspect through lucid dreaming, a phenomenon where one is aware that one is dreaming. It is often used to the advantage of psychiatric therapy and is said to be able to cure lust. The psychological thriller takes place on the borderline between reality and fantasy.
Lucid Dream is scheduled to start shooting in spring of this year, with director KIM Joon-sung of Scent of Life (2012).
