    Director YANG shot a film titled Dance Together, focusing on a Japanese woman who encounters someone new through a cell phone after experiencing the pain of a parting. KIM's short film is called Hello, Mom which has the warm feel of an analogue film, depicting the love between a mother and her daughter. Director KU's film is White Dog which portrays a white dog's growth and the dog's encounter with people. JUNG Woo-sung's topic was the fresh feelings of first love. His short is entitled Love.

    YANG explained, "Cell phones are now a big part of communication in our lives. The theme was how cell phones function as a means to communicate between people who may find it difficult to communicate." KIM Nam-gil said, "I wondered if portraying the concept of "companionship" would be possible using a machine but it was nice to be able to portray an analogue feel with the cell phone." KU said, "I think mothers with young kids will like my short film," adding that the phone has many good features. JUNG said "I portrayed the concept of one's first companion with the idea of first love." The four shorts can be seen on
