From Korea to LA
When I visited Korea two months ago, I felt the rareness and beauty of Korea, which I didn't realize when I was young.
I decided to capture Korean beauties with my eyes and photos for my next project.
Under the theme of "From Korea to the United States," my self-promotion project wanted to draw a journey for me, born and raised in Korea, to move to the United States to take on a new challenge. I wanted to fill the work with elements that feel the most Korean since my motherland is Korea.
The video begins with the opening of a mother-of-pearl cabinet in my grandmother's house. Five colorful balls merge into one and go on a journey. Several American TV shows (America's Next Top Model, Project Runway, and Gordon Ramsay show) I watched when I was a child are spread on the screen as pieces. And of the pieces suddenly turns into the landscape of LA. This is because the TV shows I watched often as a child has influenced me to come to the US. And the video ends as the ball rolls on the logo.
