What is this?
Essay with illustration and photos. It’s a book that summarizes my 15 years of story and fragments of ideas.
Why did I create this?
I wanted to introduce body shaming and body image which are unfamiliar definitions in Korea. I started with the goal of self-therapy, but I want to help people like me by sharing personal experiences.
How does it work?
In the book, I still don't have an answer on how to love myself, but I put my tryouts, regrets, failures, overcomings. By opening up about one's true emotions and experiences, readers can sympathize, get the courage to speak up like #metoo movements influenced by people. This is not only a book but a media.
