I'm trying to become a creative artist and a influential person, making a lot of fun, meaningful contents with a team. When I saw the first movie called "Yong Gari" when I was a little, it made a lasting impression on me regardless of its quality. The movie is about a dinosaur-alien named Yong Gari and the portrayal of it was so realistic to me. That is when it hit me.
