The hallowing tale of an ex-K-pop star on the decline delves into her epic journey unbeknownst to anyone but her other self, or "the Muse" as she calls, reflected in the mirror. Thoroughly brainwashed by the contemporary pop culture, aka "Gangnam-Style" phenomena out of South Korea, “Lulu” is a photogenic beauty in mass media obsessed with physical perfection and eternal youth. While her public persona pursues fortune in the linear virtual world, her other self seeks her long lost identity through vertical mental trips, or her “categories,” that continue after death. You see, she is so self-deluded that she doesn’t know she physically dies at one point. This confessional first-person story is a metaphor of the age of excess, materialism, a social satire and criticism in the context of millennia-old mythology and contemporary psychodrama seen through the eyes of young Asian women who struggle against their make-or-break destiny. Only the backdrop is the ultramodern society in Seoul, South Korea where everything, from fashion to faith, evolves at the speed of light.
