So many great images from this hard and just struggle. I'm going for the Aegis Missile ship sign. This was a simple but ingenious idea that provided a powerful symbol of resistance. It sums up the creativity and commitment at Gangjeong village.

My favorite picture is #4, a girl dancing Mayak Dance. She looks so happy! Her smile represents Hope.

I like the use of the cut out battleship as a frame for a natural formation in the distance. Creative.
