The life of an immigrant is similar to the life of a frog in a pond.
They are a minority - vulnerable to fish underwater, and preyed upon by mammals on the surface.
Yet, frogs have the privilege of crossing boundaries of both planes.
For this reason, I want to express immigrants as a "marginality," not a minority.
Many immigrants takes on challenges to pursue new dreams.
While countless stories feature immigrants who have already settled,
only a few portray those in the midst of the challenges of immigrant life.
After all, it is a life on the periphery, rather than that of a grand protagonist.
However, I consider this as a marginality, not a minority.
It is a new domain that can cross the boundaries between surfaces.
Western Avenue highlights the stories of such active stories.
It is not an epic for the successful ones,
but a memoir of very ordinary heroes who pours all effort into surviving amid failures and defeats.
