  • Production

    Life Is Cool was one of four films produced by CJ Entertainment to receive investment from Keyeast, a media contents company co-established by actor Bae Yong-joon. Although actual shooting only lasted for one month, it then took almost two years and 140 artists to complete the rotoscoping, a technique in which animators traced over live action footage frame by frame. Visual effects were created by local production company DNA, who had previously worked on The Animatrix.

    Director Choi Equan has said that he was inspired by the Richard Linklater's film Waking Life, and that the film's plot was based on a real-life story of one of his friends.


    Life Is Cool was released in South Korea on 12 June 2008. The film accumulated a total of 3,951 admissions at the domestic box office, and grossed US$28,100.
