Korean winter short films collection
Winter is coming. This winter is similar to or slightly colder than usual, but precipitation is expected to be less. Over the past few years, abnormal temperatures have been repeated due to climate change, and snowfall has been gradually decreasing. Winter drought is getting worse and fires are getting more frequent. The scenery of winter is changing faster than expected.
However, when we think of ‘winter,’ we think of an image like a snow scene covered with white snow and a warm time with a loved one who can overcome the fierce cold. Many films have actively utilized these various winter appearances.
In early December 2021, when the winter began in earnest, four short films set in winter are introduced.
