David Puttnam: Does the media have a "duty of care"?
I have just completed the first draft of the Korean translation of this talk, and I must say that I was deeply moved by the end. This is a very dense speech, rather vague and abstract at some parts, and I think it would have been difficult for me to thoroughly take in the talk without going through it line by line. The ideals Lord Puttnam so passionately argues for are something that I have always felt deeply for too but long forgotten - because it is just all too easy to be that apathetic, disillusioned, and ever cynical citizen who looks at "politics" only with disdain and prejudice. I have forgotten, or probably given up on, that it was, however slim, possible, and therefore I could always demand and hope for, more honesty, more impartiality, more accuracy, and more truthfulness, no matter how bleak and despicable things become. This talk reminded me that I had the choice, or in fact, freedom and duty, to partake and struggle in this great expectation of democracy. Really, an experience of going back to the basics. And by my standard, that qualifies for a great TED talk :)

Andrew Solomon: Love, no matter what
It was a joy and honor to translate this beautiful talk into Korean. Many wonderful lessons and fantastic innovations are regularly shared in TED talks, but somehow I believe there is still much greater potential in ourselves and the way we think than in any single scientific or technological innovation when it comes to changing the world for the better. That is why I wish more people can watch this talk!

Lisa Bu: How books can open your mind
This was a short but wonderful talk. I was particularly moved, like Ying-Hui Lin, by the line about how even a shattered dream can lead us to where it came from. Many people become needlessly unhappy by limiting their dreams and goals to certain tangible items like titles, jobs, money, etc. - this is just too simplistic and never enough to guide us to "happiness" or "passion." Life is way way greater, deeper, and full of beauty than some mere position or material possession we can dream of. And books help us to explore and expand our minds to see that.
