You are our hopes and dreams. You are precious beings. Look at yourselves and build self-confidence.
70 years since the independence, South Korea have faced countless obstacles. The Korean War, Gwangju Uprising, IMF Crisis, economic depression… The stories of today’s 5-po, 7-po generation (a new term in South Korean society that refers to a generation that gives up on courtship, marriage, childbirth, social relationship, one’s dream and so on due to excessive stress, anxiety from society and down-hill economy) are gradually turning into a common phenomenon. However, we South Koreans have always overcome such hardship and will continue to do so. And the driving force behind our endurance comes from children, our future hope. We would like to begin this project in order to bring out self-esteem among these children. We want to make them realize and discover their bright future, potential within themselves, and they shall stand as our hope. We hope these children to look at themselves in portraits and realize their preciousness.
