Is there a particular element you look into when you decide a place to live?
Sunlight and windows are important. Opening large windows to feel the sun is what I love to do at home. That’s why I don’t hang curtains. I don’t own particularly nice furniture either so I look into houses that are nice itself. This house has a high ceiling, uniquely inclined. If a house itself is built in a distinctive structure or shape, you don’t need that many things to adorn it. But of course, it’s not easy to find a house like that in Korea.
You have less things in the house than we thought.
I wasn’t good in tidying things up since I was a kid. During the years as an editor, I had piles of books and papers invading my desk all the time. I always knew being in possession with so much stuff didn’t do me any good. Besides, I never wanted to live with a bunch of things, as if I’d stay forever in one place, which is the least thing I want to do. In fact, I just got rid of a table this morning.
With that aspect, we assume you’d make careful choices when you purchase things.
No, not really. Because I know I’m not going to keep them forever. And whether it be clothes, furniture or products, I’m not the type who has a hard time choosing. I’m pretty sure that’s a good side. I have in my head a clear guideline of what I like and want so I don’t agonize or waver between this and that. And grateful enough, I go well with things new.
