TEDxSinchon - KIM, Jeonguk - Navigate Your Way Through Life's Journey.mp4

Creative minority, Kim Jung Wook. Although known as a documentary filmmaker and graphics designer, he is most renowned for accomplishing a highly unusual feat: traveling round Korean waters on a 24-foot sailboat. After graduating from college with a bachelor's degree in graphics design, he entered iMBC, only to leave the company in pursuit of a free culture creating lifestyle. He does not want to limit his life to a single career path. Rather, he seeks to carve out a colorful identity through a wide range of commitments and experiences. He believes that time spent on waters without a definite purpose is not time wasted. He assumes what might seem like an unconventional stance by urging people to simply be themselves and live their own lives, even if doing so might be perceived by others as failures. His dedication to yachting, surfing, and other unique commitments has garnered media interest and opened up a staggering variety of opportunities including holding an exhibition, giving lectures, appearing on TV, planning and directing documentary films, and designing equipment and supplies for Busan Cup Women's Match Race.What is TEDx?In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSinchon, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSinchon event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
