Of this event, artist Woojae Kim writes:

"Serving homemade liquor to guests is considered the highest form of hospitality in Korea. It was said that people could tell a family’s character by the taste of their liquor. Sharing drinks with each other is an important gesture of friendship in Korean culture. It is an invitation to participate in hospitality. I ask in whose hospitality do we share? Is it my hospitality, through which I laboured for weeks to create makgeolli for others? Is it Artspeak who hosts the event? Is it the microbes that magically turn rice into wine? Is it the land and water that support the organisms? Is it the people who have stewarded the land for a long time?"
