Progressive independent Producer
We joined Dada for a chat at one of her favourite places in Seoul, the Seoullo bridge.
It’s important to surround yourself with things that inspire you, people, art, this amazing view.
For me, I don’t really look up to famous people, my friends are more impressive. The way they protect their own philosophy, aim for their dreams and aren’t shaken by the world. I’m going to be someone who inspires others.
When people first meet me, they see that I’m all smiles and hugs and maybe don’t expect much else, but inside I’m actually a really determined person - I’ve had to be to get where I am.
As a female student in the early 2000’s, I was told that I’d never survive in the video industry, back then women weren’t involved in it. As time passed, things began to change. The industry evolved from film to digital, the internet made sharing data simple. Korea’s culture and values began to change, but I never gave up on my dream. Today I’m one of the very few female producers in Seoul and I’ve got my own production company, my hard work continues to pay off.
NO ONE CAN LIVE MY LIFE FOR ME. I AM THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DELIVER MY DREAMS.
This experience taught me that no one can deliver my dreams and happiness, except myself. That’s why I’m such a positive and hard-working person. One day I’ll be known as “Dada Kim, influential Korean film producer and inspiration to younger generations.” Watch this space.
We’ve been brewing a premium pilsner with real substance since 1842. A naturally green hop aroma, a crisp finish and a clean, confident bitterness from the combination of two Hallertau hops: Emerald and Magnum.
