Name: Gwan Lee
Hometown: Busan, South Korea
What useful skills should be taught in school but aren’t?
How to deal with Human Relationships. Human beings enter into relationships. There’s a lot of relationship stuff and everything is connected. I think this is really important and should be taught in school.
If you were hired to show tourists what life is really like in your hometown, what would you show them / have them do?
Busan is the second city in Korea, and unlike Seoul, nature is well preserved. At the same time, it has an immensely developed city. As a port city, the sea is famous and Buddhism is developed in Busan, so I recommend the Busan sea.
What were you like as a child?
I lived in a temple for a while when I was young, grew up in a Buddhist family. I first started art when I was 5 years old, and I started music when I was 7 years old. I liked people, and I was so into playing the piano at that time.
What’s one subject you could talk about for at least 5 minutes?
Talking about music. Because I am a musician. I like to talk about everything about music and I have a lot of knowledge about it.
What is a band/movie/artist/cool thing you recommend?
Radiohead, The Libertines (especially Pete Doherty), Ulrika Spacek and Frank Ocean.
