Play • 1 hr 1 min

We kick off 2021 with an Ask Dr. Cho episode, recorded live on January 5th on Facebook, and chat with Young Nam Kim, the author of A Very Long Journey, a children's book publishing in 2021.

Young Nam Kim is an award-winning artist from South Korea who won his first national art award at 16. Loving father of two. Writer, Painter, Sculptor, and all-around funny guy.

A Very Long Journey is a revolutionary new children's book which is created through a technique of relief sculpture and photography rather than traditional or digital illustration techniques.

It is written, sculpted, and painted by award-winning artist Young Nam Kim, who won his first national art competition at the age of 16.

A Very Long Journey is an exciting tale of two children's coming of age. Set against the backdrop of the Antarctic, Koda and his brother Don get into mischief and learn some important lessons of compassion and responsibility.

Meant to be much more than just a children's book, we have created an educational series of content to go along with the book.
