Mo Geumsan, a small town barber, doesn’t have much longer to live. Deciding that he wants to shoot a film before he passes, he enlists the help of his son who dreams of becoming a film director, and his son's girlfriend. Their short film is positively Chaplin-esque!

Lim Dae-hyung hits all the right notes with a delightfully offbeat dramedy.
A mix of delicate melodrama and Chaplinesque slapstick humour.
Originally from Keumsan, director LIM Daehyung moved to Seoul to study filmmaking, and earned his B.A. in film studies from Hanyang University. With THE WORLD OF IF (short), he won the Special Jury Award at Mise-en-scene Short FF in 2014 and the Best Short Film Award at Seoul Independent FF in the same year. His remarkable first feature, MERRY CHRISTMAS MR. MO, won the NETPAC Award at Busan IFF in 2016 and was invited to numerous other festivals, including Karlovy Vary IFF in 2017. His latest film MOONLIT WINTER premiered in Busan IFF in 2019.
