Living the kimchi dream
In a photographic essay I try to express how I interpret the lifestyle of young adults in Seoul. A life in the rapidly developing South Korea, which has acquired a high status in the world by its technological progress. But progress also demands its sacrifice. A strong social pressure is part of peoples lives in Korea and particularly in Seoul. Especially young Koreans are constantly in competition with each other. You have to work, and often alcohol is a valve to withstand the pressure.
The more someone is learning about this country, the more controversial the image gets, but is it representative? In Living The Kimchi Dream I'm looking for the identity that defines the young population of Seoul. I will not be able to answer this question completely, but maybe I can give a better insight.
