"While getting ready to film outdoors there was a time when the soft wind met with my face, I had lifted my chin up and I met eye contact with the sky. ‘Ring~ Ring~’ for a while I throw away my ringing smart phone and I open my mouth to let the fresh air in. It was as if all the dirty things hidden in my body and the poison-like digital technologies were all spilling out of me.
I become time’s slave, not having the super power of controlling time. Trying to grab onto it, but it has already ran over to me. Inside the reality that is hard to let go, I give it a nickname ‘yearning memories’. How long will it take for me to find ‘myself’ inside my tightly closed heart? I want to find myself not as an idol, nor as a member of infinite’s ‘L’, but as a common 20 year old, (sometimes immature) person who spends his life slowly day by day’.
During the time I authentically laid hands on my first DSLR camera, I had ignored my parents’ discouragements and out of excitement I purchased the camera during my trainee era. In the past I enjoyed taking pictures, and getting my picture taken; I had wanted it so bad I couldn’t hold it in and to see that this thing was in front of my eyes, what should I take a picture of first, what would be a good thing to take a picture of? I didn’t know what to do so I hurriedly organized my day, and I started everything by writing a memo that I used for ‘diary’ purposes. I even happened to be able to pick up some time and get the chance to go to a location nearby and emit myself into taking pictures, and I was able to create a joyful space that I would go out to and enjoy by myself. I had the chance to organize my dizzy footsteps with pictures and emotion messages. Effortlessly I had slowly discovered daily that I have found another different inner ‘L – Kim Myungsoo’, and I started to think; isn’t it time to show the world and debut as this new me?
Through that I followed my emotions and 5 senses; I want to show you the normal ‘me’. Through this book I begin to analyze and remember my emotions, it was like picking up and giving my confidence a pat on the back; the convenient life, the familiar reality, the fatigue, the depression, the emptiness and weakness, and my numerous encouraged rivalries and my weakened mind and body. Right now, at this very moment we; you and I are going to spend this precious time together.
I give myself some space and finally took a note of my surroundings and myself; this feels as if I was a flower that wasn’t able to bloom, so I warm up my small melted dreams and gave myself some life into my breath. I get a ticket into a one-way road that I’ve always carelessly passed by and as I walk down it it feels as if I had bought a ticket to success. Messily taking pictures of my footprints and the crashing waves on top of the sand; for some reason I am heart-touched. I had rolled up this short amount of time, and whenever I’m tired I can look back at this moment, and my tear drop becomes shining joy."
