“I am a theatre director, sometimes writer & other things. I'm originally from Seoul, South Korea. I now mostly live and work in New York City while searching for opportunities across America and the world. I collaboratively create narrative-driven theater that is maximalist, kaleidoscopic, epic and political as well as intimate, personal and emotional. As a leader of artistic processes, I am committed to radical inclusion and progressivism. Drawing inspiration from my liminal cultural position between South Korea and America, I seek and make up stories that fall outside presumed societal narratives”
