Joo Young Kim interested in how people look at one thing while ignoring the rest.  Some people selectively see only those they want to see, and others just cannot see the big picture. “AÉ CCU” (é-kku) means one eye.

“AÉ CCU” portrays average humans.  While most of us are granted two eyes to widen our scope of view, we don’t take advantage of this gift, either consciously or unconsciously.  We use one eye while the other, we hide inside our minds.
