|The turnout for the symposium was terrific. The CKS auditorium was packed full with fellow addicts. Audiovisual equipment was setup outside of the auditorium so that the overflow crowd would be able to see and hear the presentations. Chris Berry commented in his closing remarks that this symposium was very special since there was a 3-way communication between university professors, industry professionals (e.g., producer Kim and screenwriter Park) and the public (i.e., fellow addicts). Jun Yoo thought that this symposium had the largest turnout of all symposiums held at the CKS.|
