Statement

Soo Jung Jung is interested in the nostalgic sexualisation of adolescent girl related to contemporary society. The typical sexual fantasy about high school girls has been dealing in various scenes such as idols, art and animi culture. In terms of the style of her work, the influence of Manga is internally relevant to her interest in the portrayal of young women and the social structures and pressures surrounding young groups of teenage girls.
