SEOUL, Feb. 2 (Yonhap) — Lucid dreaming is an elusive state in which you consciously know you are dreaming. Unlike a regular dream where there is no control over what you experience, a lucid dream offers you the possibility to control your surroundings.
The upcoming Korean sci-fi thriller “Lucid Dream” tells the story of a father who slips into his own dreams with help from a psychiatrist to locate his little boy kidnapped three years ago and find clues to track down his captor.
“The term ‘lucid dream’ may sound strange, but you may have experienced the phenomenon at least once without knowing,” rookie director Kim Joon-sung said during a news conference for the film at a CGV theater in southern Seoul.

At the legal processing held in Seoul Central District Court’s 15th Criminal Investigative Division hearing, Judge Choi will be appointing Mr. Park as the key witness of the incident and holding an examination of witnesses on November 24th.
Ms. Lee’s defense said, “Mr. Park is the one who sexually assaulted Ms. Lee forcibly,” in a written statement sent to the justice department and denied the charges of false allegations.

XIA Junsu of K-pop boy group JYJ and veteran musical actors Park Eun-tae and Choi Jae-young co-star in the musical, set to run through Oct. 29.
The creative musical is a theatrical adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s “The Picture of Dorian Gray,” a Victorian novel that portrays a young aristocrat’s desire for eternal youth and beauty at the expense of his soul.

Seoul Gangnam Police Station disclosed they will be forwarding their case to the prosecution to apply for charges of false allegations and attempted blackmail on Ms. A –the first female who made accusations against Mr. Park– tomorrow (the 9th) morning.
They are also forwarding charges of attempted blackmail for gang members Ms. A’s male cousin Mr. Hwang and Ms. A’s boyfriend, to the prosecution.
Seoul Gangnam Police Station disclosed arrest warrants got issued in court; in requesting for the charges of false allegations and attempted blackmail toward Ms. A –the woman who first accused Hallyu star Park Yuchun with the charge of sexual assault– and for the charge of attempted blackmail by Ms. A’s male cousin.
Judge Jo Eui-yeon of Seoul Central District Court –who handled the interrogation of the suspects before their imprisonments– explained the reason for the issue of the warrants, “There is the fear of the destruction of evidence or of them escaping, to when they are summoned for the truths of their criminal conducts”.
Toward Ms. A’s boyfriend who received the charge of attempted blackmail together with her, the judge said, “It is difficult to accept the need and the grounds for his detention, when viewing in the light of the progress of the investigation and such up to now,” and overturned it.
It is policy the police wrap up the case sooner or later enough to determine on whether their [Ms. A’s and her cousin Mr. Hwang’s] imprisonments or not, and forward the case to the prosecution in the middle of next week.
