Born in 1978 - South Korea

"The works of So, Hyun-Woo are emphasizing the shift of a story weight from the world for children to the world for adults and the extension of a fairly tale to society. The extension makes it possible to see that institutions and capital deceive people. They have developed so-call a fairy tale for modern people or ideology and are deceiving people. From the perspective of institutions, the ideologies, such as commons-based and order-oriented society, and the society where the diligent can succeed, were to initially realize the common goodness, but in fact they have got to fall down to an instrument to educate the criterion between normality and abnormality and allow for internalizing the rules for common senses and rationality.

The enlightenment is vulnerable to powers. In the movie, Juyoosu Seupkyeok Sakun – the event of a sudden attack on a gas station, characters are allergic to the enlightenment. It is an instrument for those who have powers to defend their logic, rather than for common goodness and played as an instrumentalized rationality."
