Sequel to ‘Meeting You’ documentary offers a look behind the scenes
The sequel of the controversial MBC documentary “Meeting You” last month aired on Thursday evening.
The first part of the documentary, titled “Meeting You,” aired on Feb. 6 and brought Jang Ji-sung together with her daughter Kang Na-yeon who passed away in 2016 at the age of just 7 after being diagnosed with a rare disease. Kang was recreated through computer graphics and virtual reality (VR).
“The sequel is a behind-the-scenes story of the documentary,” the JoongAng Ilbo reported on Thursday. “It wasn’t an easy decision by Jang to choose to meet her deceased daughter again through VR and on a documentary. The sequel will shed more light on Jang and her family and what they went through after meeting Na-yeon again through VR.”
A clip from the documentary uploaded on YouTube last month has attracted over 18 million views and mixed reactions to the idea of recreating a deceased person through virtual reality.
