I never wanted to be a film director, and did so at a relatively old age…Perhaps it is all a matter of chance and luck?
I studied film in university, which made me realize how difficult its is, but I also learned how to understand and appreciate films…
I had loved films since I was a child. In a movie theatre, I could temporarily forget everything, let go of pressures, and become involved with the characters on screen, laughing and crying with them.
In the future, I will continue to follow my fortunes and keep on directing. I will try out different topics, and bring pleasure to audiences!
It is hard to say what the future holds, but one thing is for sure: film is a dream that I will pursue all my life…
