The daughter who passed away using virtual reality technology and the mother who reunited were impressed.
On the 6th, MBC Special was broadcasted as 'VR Human Documentary Met You' (hereinafter I met you).
The main character of the story was Jang Ji-sung, the mother who left her daughter Na Yeon-yang. Na Yeon-yang, the third of four siblings, visited the hospital for swelling and was diagnosed with blood cancer.
Jang said, “If forgetfulness gets worse, I worry if I can remember Nayeon.”
“I saw the sky while driving, and I saw Nayeon falling asleep on the clouds.”
The production team collaborated with the best VR technicians in Korea to prepare Jang and Na Yeon-yang to meet. The motion of the children's model was recorded as motion capture and implemented on the monitor. I tried to reproduce the scene that reminds me of Nayeon and to make the best of Nayeon's appearance and expression.
Finally, Jang arrived at VR Studio to meet Nayeon. When asked what expectations he had, Zhang said, “I wanted to see it anyway.”
After all the equipment needed for VR was ready, Zhang wore VR equipment and entered the virtual world.
As the white butterfly flew and sat in one place, Mr. Zhang approached. The sound of Nayeon's song was heard and Nayeon of the VR world ran with the cry of “Mom”.
Jang said, “I missed my mother Nayeon a lot. I wanted to hug you. ”
