A teaser trailer for Park Chan-wook’s new short film Paranmanjang (known stateside as Night Fishing) has landed online.  While any new film from the Oldboy director would generate excitement amongst those fond of his work, Night Fishing is bound to garner some attention from those outside of the Chan-wook fanclub as the entire 30-minute film was shot entirely on an iPhone (albeit a souped-up one, I’m guessing).

The film centers on a man who catches a female body while fishing.  As the story goes, he faints while untangling his line only to awake and find that he and the woman have switched wardrobes.  If I’m guessing (and I am), the story only gets stranger from there.  Paranmajang opens in select South Korean theaters at the end of January with its international release currently unspecified.  To check out the teaser trailer, and a behind-the-scenes featurette, hit the jump.
