Critic of pop culture
Bongcheon-dong, Gwanak-gu, Seoul
Underneath the name of his name card, all it read was, ‘critic of pop culture and film.’ It couldn’t get more simple. But his work experience is rather complex. He’s been an editor for <Cine Feel> and <Cine21>, editor-in-chief for a culture magazine <Brût> and comics web magazine <A Comics>. His name was used in one of the main characters of cartoonist Kang Pool’s comics, <Moving>. He lacks the ability to fly like Bongseok from the cartoon but he enthusiastically ‘moves’ his writings throughout borderless genres of films, cartoons and comics, novels and many more. As we stepped inside his home and office at a multi-unit housing in Bongcheon-dong, we were quick to notice the overflowing of books that were indeed border-free—just like himself.
