What's your ideas on how to start Before I Die wall in Seoul? 서울에서 'Before I Die' 벽을 시작하기 위한 좋은 아이디어를 나눠주세요!

I was so inspired by the 'Before I Die' wall which was set at TED conference(I wrote down 'Before I Die, I want to GET MARRIED' lol). After the TED conference, I watched Candy Chang's TED talk and decided to bring this idea in Seoul as a licensee of TEDxItaewon / TEDx ambassador in S.Korea.

It's time to move! One of my friends suggested that she wants to give me a big wall in Gangnam and support my project. Let's do this together. I'm looking forward to hearing good ideas from you all. Thanks!

작년 TEDx 한국 대사로서 빌게이츠 재단의 초청을 받아 미국 TED 현장을 방문하였을 때, 캔디 챙의 'Before I Die' 벽을 보면서 '재미있다', '멋지다' 등의 영감을 받았습니다(죽기전에 결혼하고 싶다는 장난어린 문장을 쓰기도 했지요. 제 페이스북에서 보실 수 있어요). 그러면서 한국에 돌아가면 주변 사람들과 함께 꼭 해야겠다는 결심도 했지요. 그 때가 온 것 같습니다. '버킷리스트'로 알려진 삶의 소원들을 스스로 생각해 보는 것이 바쁜 현대인들에게 참 중요한 부분이 아닐까 싶습니다.

*현재는 다음과 같이 구상하고 있습니다.
- 계획안 작성 후 서초구청 협의
- 제작비/설치비 예산 검토(약 50만원)
- 소개영상 및 이미지 제작
- 킥스타터(kickstarter) 혹은 와디즈(wadiz) 등으로 크라우드펀딩
- 설치완료 후 영상 및 사진 정기 업로드(페이스북)
- 한국 TEDx 행사에서 재활용 등

    If it's possible, let's make this project as a long term project. Perhaps this project becomes an initiative project for many projects around Korea. More specifically, after Before I Die project in Gangnam is done, we will start same projects again but in several places other than Gangnam, such as Gangbuk or other cities like Daegu, and continue on until it becomes a national movement. So it will become a wave to spread Candy Chang's message around Korea.
    To do that, in my opinion, we need to record and create new contents based on the project. Perhaps we can interview people who write on the wall. And also, the project initiator’s massage will be very important.
    I think all the contents created by this project should make people to think what our community is, and what was missing in our community. And also what is true value of this community which we missed out. So people should realize that the humanistic value created by this project is something very important to us.
    Maybe we can make some change or expand the original project as well. For example, we can put a box for name card, so people who wants to actually meet people and the projector(you) voluntarily leave their contact numbers & emails. So later you can make a meeting for people who wrote messages and leaved a name card.

    I'm going to wish nothing but the best for you, David.
