The people she "meets" in the news and in documentaries become her art. In her new work, the artist commemorates the lonely life of the late Professor Ma Kwang-soo, genius professor who first studied the "Shame" sentiment of the poet Yoon Dong-ju as well as a novelist and poet who was persecuted for his obscenity and controversy. Looking at the late professor Ma Kwang-soo, who called for freedom of expression and thus led a risk-filled life, the artist thinks about her desire to express herself as an artist. Recalling the words of the late professor, "I resent the sky. These are depressing days when we suffer under hypocritical intellectuals and writers," the artist sympathizes with the agony of intellectuals who faced the oppression of the world with their lonesome methods. Park Ji-yoon's works "Still Precious to Me" and "The Joyful Life" calmly express the artist's feelings by portraying the late Ma Kwang-soo with titles of his poems from the collection of his poems "Sight." In another new work, "Really, Endearing Woman," the artist portrays the grandmother Kim Sook-ja, who lived as a "comfort woman" in the U.S. military base. In a documentary about war and women's lives, the artist learned of courage from these grandmothers who overcame their scars from the war to testify their stories.
Also, the artist looks upon the state of people in our society, such as members of the lower middle class who live silently this society, workers who work in jobs with extreme conditions, those who strive to be the best in one field, and job seekers who study until late hours to get a job. Ultimately, the artist talks about inner happiness in "Paradise," while looking at the paradise drawn on Oriental landscape paintings and thinking, "We can't go there right away, but might there be a paradise somewhere in people's hearts and bodies?"
