Hyejung is a lighting designer in theater and public spaces.






BIOGRAPHY
Hyejung was born and raised in South Korea, where she initially studied theater at Chung-Ang University in Seoul. As a directing student, she became captivated by the profound impact of lighting design on a space: its ability to transform one world into another, almost like magic.
Light became her passion. Through dedicated studies in theatre, she progressively expanded her exploration into lighting design within public spaces such as museums, architecture, and amusement parks. She eagerly anticipates the synergies that will emerge from creatively combining these two artistic realms: public space and theater.
