Ryu’s dream is to produce an animation 100% domestically in Korea, from story making to production that is globally showcased and loved.
“I want to make unique contents that garner attention in the US by blending Korea’s delicate sensibility with the American culture. I think it’s worth a shot as the next generation producers are growing.”
