TED has Kim Young-ha videos and excerpts (from 6 works)

Kim Young-ha

Kim Young-ha at TEDx

A video of Kim Young-ha giving a charming lecture, as well as excerpts from six of Kim Young-ha’s works, several of which are linked to full versions of the stories (I have linked the full versions, where possible).

The excerpts are here, and the works include:

This video was filmed at the TEDx event in Seoul at which I first met Young-ha, so it inspires a certain nostalgia in me.^^

It is a 16 minute talk in Korean, but with English subtitles, and TED’s summary of it is:

Why do we ever stop playing and creating? With charm and humor, celebrated Korean author Young-ha Kim invokes the world’s greatest artists to urge you to unleash your inner child — the artist who wanted to play forever. (Filmed at TEDxSeoul.)
