One of the reasons why the piece feels so unique is that it is made up of different episodes. Usually, omnibus is about creating several stand-alone short stories focusing on a single theme and turning it into a work that reconnects the plot behind each story, but ‘Urban Ghost Story’ is created by 10 different volumes.
Each episode is about 15 minutes long, it feels like watching 10 different stories at the same time. This is the result of choosing to switch screens quickly rather than enhancing immersion with a long story in an era where short 10- to 20-minute forms are in the spotlight.
Director Hong, who is known for his sharp direction in music videos and CFs, also shows his unique sense in Urban Myths by emphasizing color and atmosphere. suitable for each episode. In ‘Tunnel’, the feeling of fear is heightened with a gloomy and gloomy atmosphere throughout, while in ‘Dental Cavity’, the unique composition of looking out of the mouth and the sound of a crack is used. used to open ASMR to intentionally provoke discomfort.
In ‘Closet’, a story takes place in a room that uses bold colors of wallpaper and furniture to overwhelm the eye, creating an alien atmosphere in everyday life.

The casting for Urban Myths is mostly up-and-coming idols, whether they’ve been in acting or are new to the scene.
