Gaksi got its motif from the Korean Bridal Mask. It is a work to express the satirical side of Somoo and the struggle as a bride(wife) in the modern times.

 

It attempts to ventilate the gloomy portrait of modern day people through the notion of marriage called, ’Gaksi’ in a satiric way.

Through Korean yet oriental subjects (Gaksi, Boochae, etc.) and music, it tries to create the most modernistic work.
