album release 2012.12.11
Well, It’s interesting. His name ‘Bae ho’ is ”Bae’ same as my family name ‘Bae. Any way he is a legendary singer in Korea. Especially my father respect him so much. So when I became an art director of this album, my father very happy so called his friends!!
This album is reinterpreted his songs by jazz music who very talented jazz singer named ‘Molo’. Oh, that’s right! My father usually enjoy his music, so this work is very happy for me. What can I say, his music is very familiar to me. And this album was also ranked the first as music sale at Kyobo book & music store where the largest bookstore in Seoul, Korea. And in the same year has been selected best album jacket & design.
Especially when I took on the job of the album, then I have a responsibility to express to the art of music. So moment to start the day and end, every day, from anywhere, at any time listening that music.
I think that is very important attitude as an art director of the album. If you do not interpret the music visually, you are just trying to make the cover that striking thing, if so, it seems that there is no etiquette for the music.

30-Second Seduction: How Advertisers Lure Women Through Flattery, Flirtation, and Manipulation by Andrea Gardner
Picked this up this book because I thought it would be helpful in my new job. Advertising is sometimes really all about manipulation- and it is important to know about these techniques, no matter if you’re going to use them or not. Interesting stuff about psychology, sociologists reading trends and all.
Read about how advertising puts so much pressure on women- how we have to juggle so many things and to be ‘perfect’. In the end the book really eats at me because I have been influenced. Nobody is spared from the media deluge today.
The book addresses things I want to know- How the hell are you supposed to market your beauty product when you’re encouraging people to ‘be themselves, be authentic’ and things like that? “After all, advertising feeds on fears and insecurity.” And empowering women through ads does not necessarily convert into sales, though yes, people will like your brand. In the end there’s this huge dilemma and things get really crazy. Is there still such a thing as Good advertising? And why is advertising suffering from such an seemingly inherent bad rep?
"The fraying of social trust"- can you trust your friends when they might be involved in trying to sell you something? It’s like can I trust bloggers nowadays when all they do is do sponsored advertorials? Is there truth or honest opinion in the world anymore?
In the end being authentic and real is still very important in a world where everyone wants to be somebody else. Gulp.
/// Walking this fine line and it’s really important to stay true and ethical . These are some of the challenges I face every day at work.
do you feel like I did before/ do you see the world getting small //
The weekend passed by really quickly, quite tired but haha it was great :)
Hung out at Dhoby w the boys and chanced upon the Night Fest!! Cool stuff haha :) Earth Harp, cool light installations and hipster looking night market. Here are some crappy quality pictures from my phone. HAHA
Crowds, crowds, crowds. But: pretty lights :)
This. At first I was like wth are all those people looking at. And then when you finally see it, you shit bricks.
How amazing is this?!?!?! The artist must be really good- to work with a random tree :O Super impressed. Kinda creepy but wow.
Singaporean takes on classic art pieces. HAHA! Recognised the parodies especially since I’ve been exposed to the originals last semester during my aki mod Reading Visual Images :) These really tickled me.
"The Last Kopitiam" Hahaha.
Tried the Durian Creme Brulee zomg it was damnnn good.
And I guess lighting affects the photo quality x1000! The green was really pretty- there was live music and all sorts of entertainment. Plus it was spread out over a few places! Hapz!!
Traipsed all around Sg with my two buddies hahaha are we insane? I like walking the quiet streets at night. (Probably only so chill cuz I wasn’t alone and don’t really have to worry about safety) Second only to walking the streets at night after rain. But old already haha shag sia. Thanks for the awesome company ^_^
Also watched Guardians of the Galaxy (finally!!) Love the soundtrack! Fun movie :) I love Star Trekky kinda stuff HAHA one of the prison wardens remind me of Scotty.
NO MEH? :P
Somehow this whole movie also reminded me of Treasure Planet.
Had dinz with my sista lol and I forgot to bring my wallet HAHA! Paid her back later though hahaha.
More damage to my wallet on my imaginary pay but haha having money is soooo awesome haha. So far I have spent it on food, treating friends & family and work clothes.
Softball! Haha got up really early, but thanks Pok for giving us a lift again. Seriously lol how are we supposed to get to school otherwise :P
Field still muddy but morale was up! We played two games, didn’t win but I think overall the team has really gotten much stronger. Like Yawen says we really need to capitalise on the little opportunities to score since nowadays we can get on base. Quite different from the previous years. Caught two fly balls- quite shocked really haha. Also very proud of some awesome plays & runs my teammates made!! Upz yall :) And yes, like Rachel said, we did everything we could- we recovered from errors, we made good plays. All we need now is to connect the hits. Jiayou friends <3
Went off to play bball with the boys after the second game HAHA sun you max. Haven’t played bball in forever, missed it! :)) Went back eventually to help pack up haha.
Then dinz at smelly drain with whats left of the team was fun :D We were all so shag we didn’t realise we didn’t make our order until Pok said something. LOL. Plus all the crazy laughing I can only remember laughing and stoning LOL was a bit high.
Gonna go take a rest now! Busy week ahead for the entire office. We started packing a bit- cleared out magazines from 1997 omg haha. Very retro. Brought back some print material I liked hahaha :) Gaah just cannot leave these pretty paper things alone. Can’t wait for my first free weekend!!!
Also I really need to start paying attention to little details. Am kinda blind to my own copy- can’t catch my own mistakes and shit. Need to be duper duper careful- I’m really a big picture person I would say. But I’ll train up the eye for keener detail!!
Andddd totally need to watch my weight D:
Also, yay apples & home cooked dinners :)
