Youth Paves a New Path
In times of low economic growth, it's hard for young people to imagine a rosy future. They might enjoy more privileges compared to their parents' generation and be more competent, but youth unemployment problem has worsened and it's become harder for them to make ends meet.
However, there are young people who have made their unique dreams come true. Their dream doesn't involve a grand future. They value doing what they love with people who share their interests.

Ik! Taekkyon
Young people in white uniforms stand on stage. They are called Ik! Taekkyon, a team that was chosen to be a national representative in 2015. They were founded by 6 young athletes to keep the traditions of taekkyeon, the only martial art to be recognized by UNESCO to be an Intangible Cultural Heritage, and educate people about it. To popularize the martial art, the team members mixed taekkyeon with another martial art called tricking and created a fusion performance called bigak. It hasn't even been full 3 years since their establishment, but Ik! Taekkyon has already given over 500 domestic and 100 overseas performances. They are not interested in money or fame. They just want to practice taekkyeon with people who have similar interests. They want to be happy today so that they can be happy tomorrow.

DNBN Co-op
In Chuncheon, Gangwondo-province, there's an organization called DNBN Co-op. Four youths who established this co-op say that they are just regular people, but they are celebrities in Chuncheon. After establishing the co-op, they opened a coffee shop called Curious 2nd Floor House in Jungang Market. Their goal is to bring young people back to the traditional market and revive it. So they also host a concert once every other month with local musicians.
That's not all. They also renovated an old inn in Chuncheon and opened BomN Guest House. They host makgeolli (rice wine) party and Chuncheon City Tour for young travelers and print vouchers they can use at local shops to help the regional economy.
Most young people choose to leave small towns and settle in big cities, but DNBN Co-op members' decisions were different. They chose to pave a path for themselves in a deteriorating neighborhood.

Young Seller
One word sums up Young Seller: passionate. Young Seller was founded in 2011 by 2 friends, Kim Yun-gyu and Kim Yeon-seok. Their interest in youth activities and business led them to establish the company and recruit other young people to work with them. They began by opening their first restaurant Potato House. Now, they have a total of 11 restaurants and 40 employees. The secret behind their rapid growth is that they did not focus on making money but on implanting hope, giving jobs, and helping youth find their future. They also encourage their interns to become full-time employees by taking 2 weeks of education and 3 months of internship. Full-time employees can also open their own businesses after building experience.
Young Seller's business brought life back into what was once a deteriorating alleyway in Youngsan-gu, Seoul. It used to be filled with empty print shops. After Young Seller simultaneously opened 6 restaurants, people started visiting the alley again and local businesses also benefited from it. Through this, young people learned that they can accomplish anything as long as they have the passion for it and work hard. And now, they are preparing to enter the U.S market. They started collaborating with Song Jeong-hun, the president of Utah Cupbop restaurant, where he sells Korean dishes such as bulgogi and japchae (stir-fried glass noodles with meat and vegetables) in a cup. The Young Sellers love to take on challenges to make bigger opportunities for young Koreans. Armed with courage and passion, the Young Sellers live every day to their fullest.
