Behind the Curtains explores one’s transition through trauma and what is left afterwards. The loss of oneself both physically and mentally is its main theme. Yoon also wanted to play with the change in perspective of a trauma. As time passes by, old wounds heal and fade away. Trauma becomes something one look into as a third person, not live in it anymore. One can always close the curtains and avoid it.
