About this event

Young감. (Inspiration)
영감(Young-gam) is the Korean word for Inspiration, the feeling of enthusiasm you get from someone or something, which gives you new and creative ideas. Also we created a new meaning of this word by mixing a English word and a Chinese character, “Young 感”. There for "Young 感" contains the meaning of sharing specific enthusiasms, sensibilities, and ideas among the youth as well as the original meaning of Inspiration.
In Korea, most of teens act like automatons which are repeating a cycle between school and home. Every day they are on the same path of the cycle even though they couldn't answer either questions fallowing behind, 'where are you going?', 'where do you have to go?' or 'where do you want to go?'. We wanted to free the teens of today from restraints of their studies therefor they becoming the free statement to get an inspiration of one's own life.
