Interview with Eloquence Magazine

About a couple months ago, I had an interview with ELOQUENCE Magazine and the copy of the book just arrived!!

ELOQUENCE is an International Creators Magazine which is based in Seoul, Korea. The magazine is published both in English and Korean, side by side. I am very glad to have had this opportunity to share my story with the Korean readers.

The ELOQUENCE magazine is available for purchasing at all major book stores such as  Kyobo.

약 2달전에 엘로퀀스 (ELOQUENCE) 라는 월간 잡지와 인터뷰를 하였는데요, 이번10월호에 제 인터뷰와 작품 사진이 실리게 되었네요.  감사하게도 제 인터뷰를 맡아주신 sophie님께서 미국까지 책을 보내주셨습니다!  : )

엘로퀀스는 국내외 각국의 창작자들의 예술, 음악, 건축, 패션, 영화 등 각기 다른 분야의 창의적인 작업을 소개하고 협업프로젝트를 진행하는 잡지로 기사가 영문과 한글, 이 두 언어로 나란히 출판되어집니다. 그리하여, 제 인터뷰의 원문은 영문이었는데, 한글 번역되어 같이 실리게 되었네요. ^^ 이번기회에 한국 독자 여러분들께 제 이야기를 공유할 수 있게되어서 매우 기쁘게 생각합니다.

잡지구입을 희망하시면, 교보문고와 같은 대형 서점에서 잡지를 구입하실 수 있습니다.


ELOQUENCE is a magazine for and about creators. As the only creators’ magazine in Korea, it provides a unique platform for creative people.
