TEDxSinchon - Woo, Heungje - A Person Who Has Never Experienced Success.mp4

A GreemZip art dealer, Heung Jae Woo was an average office worker after graduating from college. As a lover of paintings, he conceived the idea of selling works of art in a small store tucked in the corner of the streets as opposed to posh art galleries and exhibitions. In August 2005, he put his idea into action by setting up a place called "One House One Picture " with his friends. Soon after, he established a number of new programs, from the "Art Financing Association " in which 1,000 Won is collected every day to purchase artwork to "Morning " in which GreemZip's works of art are placed on display. In April 2009, he launched another program called "Enough Salon," which serves as a marketplace where people can freely sell or exhibit their artwork. Despite being short of money in the early years of GreemZip, he found joy in his new job that he could not find in his previous job as an office worker. He emphasizes the importance of taking the road not taken, namely taking a break from the monotony of everyday life and gaining diverse, seemingly unnecessary experiences. Even with Greemzip drawing significant media attention, he is constantly thinking of ways to publicize the arts.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.
