Rainy Days in South Korea
A positive way to look at what’s usually a gloomy day
A rainy day usually draws the ire of those affected by it, blaming it for making much of the day’s activities more burdensome. In South Korea, Hui takes a gray, rainy day and turns it into a work of art. There’s something about looking at life through water-speckled windows that helps us appreciate the little things.
Hui provides us with how she looks at the world on a rainy day on the island of Jeju, whether it be a palm tree obscured by a washed out window on her drive to work, a high-definition shot of water droplets on a window in her home, or a close up of tiny droplets outside a restaurant serving up hot South Korean style pizza (sounds like the perfect choice for a wet day). Hui is able to take the routine rainy day and illustrate the overlooked brilliance of precipitation, both on its way down to earth and after it has found a resting place on a glass window.
