My Story

Telling the unheard stories.

My passion for being a filmmaker comes from a lifelong goal to tell the stories of people who are underrepresented by society.

 

Being part of an ethnic minority, Zainichi Korean in Japan, I have been interested in tackling the social issues and inequality surrounding me by using moving images since a child. Majoring in Media, Communication, and Culture at International Christian University in Japan has broadened my knowledge and perspective to be a critical thinker, which led me to see and explore the world.

 

To follow my dream, I moved to the UK for my master's Degree in Filmmaking and wrote and directed my first short film Beauty Is The Beast in 2021. The film was a social realism with an entire cast of East-Asian backgrounds.
