Tragic love, 2004, Digital slide projection, 25min

 

Once upon a time, there was a movie star named "Lee Dae-Geun" Almost every boys in my generation were fascinated by him. And of course, he was my hero. Anyone could be my friend as long as he likes Lee. Recalling my memory, he was the strongest and the sexiest guy on this planet. If I had a dream, that was to become a man like him.
Everybody has one beautiful time in life that will never be forgotten. For me, the summer of the year 1980 was such a time in my life. In the summer, my classmates and I went to a park nearby Soon-Deok women's high school for painting competition. Although I heard about the notorious girls of Soon-Deok women's high school, I wish the rumour were not true.
