Hello. My name is Ahreum Lee. I live in Seoul, Korea, and I’m the lead singer of the band Juck Juck Grunzie. When I was young, I went to the temple once a week because my mother was a Buddhist. So it influenced me a lot. And what my mom said to me– she is not by my side anymore, but like a spiritual guide, her words stay in my mind. When you look at the earth as one, all people could be family, even though you may feel you’re alone. I need something to solve my twisted life. So I started making music, a band, and then I started drawing. Drawing can make me more introspective. First I wanted to heal myself and to share my emotions. And now… Why am I doing it now? It’s a difficult question. We’re in this compressed society in Korea. Society pushes people. I don’t think people’s opinions or culture are their own in Korea. Because they live in Seoul, South Korea… it was injected into their mind, so we learned that and became like that. And we take for granted that we live like that. People live only for success. And society decides the standards for success. Nobody tells them that there is another way. I spent time with a lot of great artists and worked with them. And everything I couldn’t learn from my family, I learned from them. So, I look at the world through those eyes.
