A lo largo de su serie HELLO MR MISANG el ilustrador coreano Lee Juyong proyecta ilustrar los extraños mundos que el citado Mr. Misang y su buen amigo Franken Aje visitan a lo largo de sus viajes.

En la primera entrega de este bizarro cuaderno de bitácora, titulado “Modern Life is a Rubbish”,  ambos personajes recorren la ciudad del Trabajo, el Dinero y la Competitividad. Una barroca y distópica sátira de nuestro día a día inmersos en este voraz capitalismo que todo lo entiende en clave de sobreexplotación y constante beneficio.
