Despite the ridicule, poverty, and family discord, she was admitted to Yonsei University, one of the most prestigious universities in Korea and won a scholarship after winning a famous TV quiz show.
After graduating from college, she worked at Goldman Sachs, but at the age of 25, she underwent cancer surgery and wrote a list of 73 dreams she wanted to achieve before she died. She then moved to London, finished her master's degree, and worked for Royal Dutch Shell.
Her first book and autobiography, "Write Your Dreams, Write Your Future”, published in 2010, sold 300,000 copies and changed the lives of many people. In 2011-2014, she published "What is Your Dream?" and "What is Your Love?" based on interviews with over 500 people about their dreams and love in 47 countries around the world over a period of 25 months. She also filmed, starred in, and narrated a one-hour documentary that aired on SBS, the most popular TV channel in Korea.
In 2012, she founded the content company "Dream Panorama" and has shared the seeds of dreams in various ways, such as content production, publishing, educational programs, songs, apps, exhibitions, festivals, parades, and competitions.
