    When director Woo Seon-ho was at his maternal grandfather's funeral, he wondered what would happen if his grandfather's dead body suddenly disappeared. This unusual and dark thought inspired his debut feature film, Over My Dead Body. He had previously won the comedy award at the 4th Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival for My Really Big Mike.

    Over My Dead Body has elements of social satire and black comedy as well as character comedy. At the core of the comedy is various unexpected situations as different characters come together. There are also chase scenes shot around Banpo Bridge and the surrounding high-rise apartment blocks.
