|In this moving and often heartbreaking drama, Kim, a film director, loses his dog Popee which he has raised for 10 years. To overcome his grief and to console himself, Kim decides to make a film about Man's best friend. Popee is not only an ode to Man's love of dogs, but it's also a reflection on our needs for love and companionship.|
Editor's NoteAfter the death of his 10-year-old dog Popee, film director Soo-hyun (Korean pop star Hyeon-jin Baek) decides to cope with his grief by making a documentary about his beloved pet. Soo-hyun's project soon expands from the personal to the universal as he begins interviewing other dog owners about their own experiences, resulting in a heartwarming drama that reveals the extent to which animals often serve as a conduit for human emotions. Though it is, in fact, a fiction film, POPEE often plays out like a documentary with strong elements of autobiography from South Korean writer/director Ji-hyun Kim.
