The 30-minute film about a love triangle involving Jeoní»s part, her loving younger sister and her sister's boyfriend, Jeon is on top form. It was a friend who persuaded her to appear in the movie.

The film is a kind of extended music video for the singer Position, who also returned to work after long absence, just like Jeon. She says she decided to appear in it because it is directed by top commercial film and music video producer Cha Eun-taek.
