The Gifted

- / - / - / -

In South Korea education success is highly valued, I’ve studied hard with one belief - it will promise my future. I was always an honour student in my school life, even certified as a gifted child in science by the government. But in the final year of the university, I became having a zero confidence and feeling betrayed by the education system which makes me lost.
At the same time, my little sister enters into an elementary school. Observing her life filled with extra classes and homework every day, I see my past. With looking back my time there, I try to figure out what I’ve missed and how I will have my own life after all that.
