Terror Saarinen has given this work the title "VORTEX". The cultures and traditions of Scandinavia and South Korea meet and are combined, the primitive identity of the dancers is stimulated, and sometimes they are caught in a whirlpool and renewed with the image that their cultures collide violently. I succeeded in deriving physical expression.

By the fusion of the traditions and experiences that live in my body and the Korean traditions
I feel that I have been given a wonderful gift. ”
