Young Korean artists see crypto art as fresh opportunity

When contemporary artist Mari Kim was suggested to "mint" one of her artworks to sell it as an NFT, she did not hesitate. "The sooner, the better," she thought to herself.

NFTs, or "non-fungible tokens," have taken the global art world by storm, with artist Beeple's digital work fetching a whopping $69.3 million at a Christie's auction in March, the third-highest price achieved by a living artist.

And they have started to take off in South Korea, bustling with crypto enthusiasts and young artists eager to find new sales outlets for their works.

In March, the country's first-ever NFT auction took place, and "Missing and Found," Kim's 10-second animated artwork, sold for 288 Ethereum (ETH), equivalent to 600 million won, or US$537,000, at that time. It is now worth more than 1.4 billion won since the virtual currency rose in value. Ethereum is the second-most valuable cryptocurrency after Bitcoin.

Ren really shined in this episode and Jaejae is always great. I'm loving the rest of the 95-line dying of low-key embarrassment revisting the past and it's so interesting to hear how they ended up with 'Face' as the title track.[Spoiler (click to open)]
now I'm really curious what the 2012 kpop scene would have been like if the song stayed with Son Dambi or After School instead.. any thoughts?
