We were told this is your first time living on your own in 34 years.
There wasn't a particular reason for me to call for an independence but I ran into a place that caught my eye while I was taking a slow walk around Yeonhui-dong by chance. And I immediately packed my stuff and moved in.(laugh) It was something like a pure attraction to the isolated feeling. I loved how quiet it was despite the fact that it was a branch of a busy street and how the people I’d run into would be mostly neighbors and not the tourists you’d face in other popular allies in the area. Well, the best part is that it’s only 5 minutes away by car from work.
What is your current job?
I work at the marketing team of a broadcasting studio ‘tvN.’ My role is to sugarcoat programs the producers make and ‘sell’ them to the viewers. Currently I’m engaged with a program called <Around the World in 80 Days>, produced by Youngseok Na (a renown producer in entertainment). In the beginning I was employed at Mnet and ran for four years ‘M PUB,’ which was one of the benefit services the company offered to viewers and customers. It declined to run an alcohol-only culture and instead focused on becoming a cultural space mixed with music and trend, and as a person crazy for music, it was personally a very intimate job to work on. I was also in charge of casting bands or djs, and sometimes I’d ask Professor Wonyoung Jeong (one of Korea’s famous musician) or music scriptwriter Suntak Bae to dj, which were extraordinary moments I recall from the job.
