About this event

The main topic of the speech is 'All We Need is Romance! ' Since industrial revolution, we only cared about efficiency and productivity. At first, many people thought it is quite fascinating since it made human life much more convenient. Soon, however, people were skeptical about impersonal life which caused a lot of social problems.
Likewise, now we are going through a hard time; unemployment rates are high, many individuals are in debts, the world economy is going down. Things are tough. Many people are eager for more humane life. TEDxPalgong organizers would like to cast speakers who are living according to their conviction not clinging to money or other peoples'
