When he was 20 years old, he watched short animation films from The National Film Board of Canada (NFBC) by chance and becomes fascinated with the world of animation.  But he didn’t get accepted to any of the schools that he applied, which he continued until he was 27 years old.  After going through several non-formal education systems, he finally made his first short animation, Ordinary Meals in 2009.  In 2010, he was accepted to Korean Academy of Film Arts and made his second animation, City of Good People, which received good reviews at several film festivals.  From 2012 to 2014, he made his debut feature animation, On the White Planet at KAFA.
