Have you heard of trauma cleaners before? A trauma cleaner cleans the home of the deceased person and organizes their belongings. Through collecting what’s left behind, a trauma cleaner delivers any unsaid messages from the deceased to those who are living on. Director Kim Sung-ho talked about being inspired by Kim Sae-byul’s nonfiction essay Things Left Behind and wanted to show how trauma cleaning helps people experience proper closure. You’ll definitely learn something new through this series.

Lee Je-hoon, the Chameleon
