‘TARTARUS’, the unescapable underworld.

The divided world within the movie ‘TARTARUS’ contains a mythological view, the underground (TARTARUS- COVID 19 outbreak era), earth (GAIA- The era of COVID 19 recovery) and the blue (AITHER- COVID 19 free era). In times of this virus outbreak, the whole universe including Seoul is full of fear of this invisible and unpredictable virus. The movie portrays the hellish reality of the underground world ‘TARTARUS, and we are all trapped in this gloomy and miserable world of TARTARUS.

Awakening from the darkness the protagonist takes strong steps towards the uncorrupted world (AITHER) filled with pure air. The door of hope that he can escape from the underworld has unlocked, but the world ahead of him is yet still the underground world. The creation high above was merely an illusion drawn in his head. There is no more hope, and the people are exhausted from this inevitable nightmare. They are desperate ever than before to reach AITHER or at least the ground GAIA. The more we descend deeper to the underground world; GAIA symbolizes the courage to stand up again.

‘TARTARUS’ coveys our new reality of COVID-19 fatigue and presents the courage to fight and overcome this state.
To defeat this fatigue, where is our GAIA?
Will we be able to meet GAIA and step up further to reach the new blue world?
