Journalism: Kimchikim’s Life Essay Articles
KIMCHIKIM’s life essays appeared weekly in Sports Seoul New York, a Korean daily newspaper published in Seoul, Korea. KIMCHIKIM’S articles focus on human interest topics relative to current news, special events and milestones throughout the year. Photographs of people and places that are featured in the articles are also accompanied by her freehand movement sketches of the nude human body, which can best be descibed with the French term “croquis” meaning a quick sketch. The newspaper’s emphasis on sports and dynamic motion of the human form lends itself well to croquis drawings which are reflections of ideas and moods (i.e. happiness, sorrow, pleasure, pain) in the articles. KIMCHIKIM draws the human figure in a Soho studio in New York City where movement models pose for less than a minute. These articles have been considered as unique, fresh, and emotional life essays which are anticipated and cheered by readers. Many supporters of the articles have found inspiration and reflection in the life’s descibed in the essays, as well as in their own. KIMCHIKIM was a Columnist and Cultural Events Reporter for SSNY through 2006.
