Korean designer makes his mark on Hollywood
Having firmly established himself in the growing concept-design industry, artist and illustrator Steve (Woo-min) Jung has his sights set on educating the younger generation of talented Koreans to enter his industry.
The 32-year-old naturalized United States citizen who made his home in Los Angeles, has worked on some of the most popular films with computer graphics in recent years.
Concept designers are like visual planners. Their job is to take the imagination of directors or script writers and bring them to life. Concept designers not only design characters, but they also work on the films’ backdrops and design movie sets and characters.
Jung most recently worked on “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and “Tron Legacy,” a sequel to “Tron” (1982), which was released in North America and Korea late last year. Jung helped design characters and worked on the “club” set and other action scenes in the film.
