Hyunsuk Kim – One sick doctor spanked his left butt until he broke into tears many years ago in Pusan, Korea. The doctor’s hand marks still visible today twisted his personality. While majoring in animation and secretly studying film at ‘Pratt Institute’ and ‘School of Visual Arts’ to disguise his true intentions and to avoid any suspicion especially by his sister and parents, his serious sneering at life expressed in his first animation in 2001 accidentally won him a few awards in animation and film festivals. He also expresses his visual creativity, working with Blue Muse Dance.
