middle heaven

when a person dies
A middle ground between earth and heaven.

The souls who entered the midst of heaven
Touring 7 spaces for 7 days each
wash away the smell of sin,
Organize your relationship with Lee Seung-gi.

The greatest regret left behind in this world,
I have to shake off the most painful memories
After the last 7 days
On the 49th day,

some are
Ascending to heaven for reincarnation…
some are
Remaining as a celestial man who threw away all human memories…
some others
He became a ghost floating in the middle of the sky.

A demon turns into a demon and runs rampant
When even the order of reincarnation is broken,

The exorcist who holds the key to all relationships,
a man with a living body
led by fate
Enter the world of the dead, the middle heaven.

A new Asian imagination about the world of the dead, 中天!

The imagination of <Jungcheon> started from curiosity about 'in what kind of space do people really exist after they die?' The world after death is a space that no one has been to, but everyone has drawn at least once, so special consideration was necessary. The production team was inspired by the concept of Buddhism, which is also known as the '49-jae 九齋' or 'Chilchil-jae 七七齋', which is familiar to Asian audiences including Korea, China, and Japan. The basic concept of 'Jungcheon', a fantasy space that organizes memories and prepares for reincarnation, was established. After that, from the scenario stage, a separate art team was formed for the space concept, and a lot of effort was put in to show a new Asian imagination.
As a result of thinking about the space concept for over two years, the 'Tanchwitang', where souls soak for 7 days to wash away the smell of sins committed in this world, is a 'tanchwitang' that can only be entered through the door only by remembering the worst thing. The village of chamseon' and 'chamseongwan', where there is a huge incense burner that burns fig leaves, spreads the scent of painting that calms the hearts of souls all over Jungcheon. Fantasy spaces of novel imagination similar to the real world, such as 'Street of the Otherworld', which were made with lanterns, were created. Now, you will enjoy the unique pleasure of checking the 49 days after death with your own eyes through the newly created 'Jungcheon' by the Asian imagination.
