Hi! I am Youjin Do, a creative maker, documentary director and published author. What makes me most happy is creating ideas and realizing them to make meaningful social changes.

I’m currently working on my new documentary's post-production with an amazing production company. I'll be able to share more news about it in February 2020!

From 2015 to 2017, I produced and directed my first feature length documentary about remote work and the rise of digital nomads called One Way Ticket. I crowdfunded it on my own website and organized producing across 4 continents with an entirely remote crew. We interviewed tech companies like Automattic, Zapier, Basecamp and Buffer. It's now published and streamable on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.

Based on my documentary research I was asked by Namhaebomnal, a reputable South Korean cultural book publisher to write a book called "원하는 곳에서 일하고 살아갈 자유, 디지털 노마드 (Digital Nomads: Freedom to Live and Work Wherever You Want)". It was the first book in South Korea about remote work and was featured on prime time evenings news and major publications.

After that, I worked for Korea Exposé, an English-language media outlet focusing on telling insider stories from South Korea. At Korea Exposé, I organized the video team from scratch and lead it to over 1 million views across YouTube and Facebook.

My recent videos focus on feminist movements in South Korea, which is seeing a revolutionary time in South Korean feminist history. I spoke about women’s rights and feminist movement in South Korea based on my recent video works in interviews with BBC, Quartz, and more.

My work has been featured in Quartz, Huffington Post, Forbes, News.com.au, South China Morning Post, The Next Web, Tech In Asia, Korea Herald, SBS Korea, Cosmopolitan, Grazia and many others.
