Hey everyone! Richard here. Way back in 2008 I started working at Kyung Hee University. In my first semester teaching I barely knew what was going on. It took me some time to get my footing being a lecturer, but I eventually caught on.
Back during that very first semester, I wasn’t really focused on getting to know my students like I am today. I was simply trying to keep my head above water. Which is why I’m so thankful for my friend Super DS, or just DS for short. He was a student in one of those classes my first semester, and he paid close attention to my class even though I barely knew he was there.
He came up to me one day near the end of the semester and invited me to his graduation film presentation. I was stunned. I accepted, we exchanged numbers, and we’ve been in contact ever since. He was pivotal in helping me produce my every first documentary movie The Su-neung: Korea’s University Entrance Exam, and he’s also invited Stephanie and I to his parent’s home way in the southern part of Korea. I’m fortunate to know such a person here.
Because we both lead busy schedules, it’s touch to see him often. He contacted me recently and I headed to Seoul to see him. He’s producing a new movie now, being shot in Seoul in association with Netflix starting next week by the Wachowski’s called Sense8. These are the same people that directed the Matrix! He’s invited Steph and I to the set next week so if we have a chance to actually go as visitors, maybe we can shoot a little video to show you what it’s like for a western movie to be shot in Seoul. That would be SO KILLER!
