Music and Memories:

Hong Kyung, a rising talent known for "Innocence," "D.P.," and "Weak Hero Class 1," voices the character of Jay, a musician and retro instrument repairman.

A chance meeting with Nan-young, sparked by an old turntable, turns into a love story that must withstand the vast emptiness of space.

Artistry in Animation:

They are directed by writer-director Han Ji-won, who has already impressed with her short films "Kopi Luwak," "Clearer than You Think" and "The Sea on the Day When the Magic Returns," the film promises a tender and nuanced love story.

Her participation in the Sundance Film Festival is a testament to her cinematic prowess.
