    The world is full of conversations with women I鈥檝e never met. 鈥淗i, how are you?鈥 鈥淵eah? Me too.鈥 鈥淣ah, no way!鈥 鈥淪ure, I鈥檇 love to.鈥

Only at the last event did I get to ask him whom his favorite inspirations were: He said Kim Ki-young and Yasuzo Masumura鈥攚hich led me to binge on the latter鈥檚 works.
