I wanted to do a statement on how much the society in Korea looks for the perfect candidate and yet they don’t see how broken a person could be behind their photos. It’s quite common that companies look at a resume with a photo and decide whether you are fit for their company, apparently they can “see the character of a person” with just a photo. However, I wanted to show how much goes on inside a person’s mind and heart aside from a photo. Many people carry emotional wounds in this land and cannot talk about it.
This is a social statement on how oppressive it can be and even how the work culture makes women work in more submissive ways. Women also get paid less than their male counterparts in Korea. I was actually shocked when I saw the statistics on this.
