With the prolonged era of COVID-19, the theater field is striving more than ever to find a breakthrough. While many attempts are being made to redesign the concept of theater and plays that adhere to the new reality of events, such as the online premiere screenings, online live streaming, and social distancing, a new type of online play screening project is also being considered by students that love plays. The 2020 Spring play created by the Hanyang University Department of Theater and Film, That is it: Dress Fantasia, is a new type of online play that is planned to be called an "HDT WebTheatre", where one chapter of a play is released every day, which is different from the regular online live streaming form.

The 2020 first semester theater group of Hanyang University's Department of Theater and Film opened an online screening event (HDT UNCONTACT) that allows the audience to meet sections from five different plays and musicals online, through the YouTube platform. A total of 5 pieces, The Red Flowers Bloom on a Spring Day, Rip that Tennis Ball, That is it: Dress Fantasia, Pest, and Jane Eyre: Thornfield Hall, have been under screening orders through the official YouTube channel of Hanyang University's Department of Theater and Film, starting from the beginning of July. For the finale of the online screening event, the play That is it: Dress Fantasia will finish the event. 





That is it: Dress Fantasia is about the sickness and emptiness of a couple in their 20s and the trace of the era of modern history that our grandparents went through. At first, the play may seem like it is representing social problems such as the disparity between generations. However, in the end, it beautifully presents an insight into "our" lives where throughout the endless relationships and goodbyes, and unfillable loss and emptiness, at the end of our lives we can say, "That is it." A play that is composed of seven different chapters, That is it, is not performed in chronological order. Rather, it is presented in a non-chronological way, with certain keywords such as lemonade, maternity dress, and sonata that are leading each chapter. During a total of 7 days of opening (7.13~7.19) at 6 p.m., the play itself and key soundtracks will be released through the official YouTube channel of Hanyang University's Department of Theater and Film.
