A High School dropout, Chris Yoon’s self-taught graduation essay, “Escape from madness.”

A High School dropout, Chris Yoon’s self-taught graduation essay, “Escape from madness.”

At the end of long wandering, teen-age Chris Yoon shouts for the world, “A new path.”

Chris’ first impression is his teen freshness. But when you talk to him, you’ll be amazed by the wide field of view and deep thoughts that aren’t like a teenager. Chris Yoon, a youth who failed to adjust to studying abroad at a young age, went off the standard ordinary path and spent time called wandering by the world.

It was wandering in the eyes of others, but it was a ‘time of passion and curiosity and immersion into the world and philosophy’ for teenager Chris Yoon. He sharply dug into the absurdity of the world that adults seem to overlook, and his interest in politics, economy, culture, society, and human existence created Chris Yoon, an addictive reader.

While citing complaints, anxiety, and worries toward the world, he tried to find the answer from the classics, humanities, philosophy, thinkers, and writers. The time of repetition of constantly thinking, writing, erasing, rewriting and rethinking, makes us look forward to the ‘future sociologist Chris Yoon,’ who changes the world. I asked Chris Yoon.

Q. How did you feel that you were dismissing the manuscript?
A. It’s been two and a half years since I quit school. Like others, I couldn’t get my report card and show it to my parents, and I felt ashamed at the thought that I did nothing by myself. However, after writing the final manuscript, the sense of achievement is little comforting.

Q. What does it mean to escape from madness?
A. I wandered for a long time. Now I thought I should get some iron. It means to escape to the last wandering.

Q. Changes before and after writing a book?
A. I am very grateful. In fact, my parents seem to have worried a lot. I just did what I wanted, writing, but my parents must have always been anxious to watch. Still, I thank my parents for believing and waiting until the end.

Q. What reader do you want to meet?
A. I’m curious about people’s reactions. So anyone is fine. I would be happy if I had a reader who would at least write a bitter comment on my writing. Because that is an interest.

Q. What are your plans for the future?
A. I want to study sociology. Previously, I was interested in philosophy. Now I want to study sociology. I think it may be because I am looking for close contact with reality.

“Escape from madness” is a book that I would like to recommend to wandering middle and high school students and their parents as well as those who want to break stereotypes about the world. “Escape from Madness” may not be a bestseller, but Chris Yoon has plenty of potentials to be a best-selling author.
