In 2007 there was an all-time low of one word in pop music: love.
This is ironic, because although it has only slightly increased in use since 2007, clearly our obsession with human connection – especially romance – is anything but decreasing. Turn on any popular Spotify playlist for evidence.
Why then has "love" significantly dropped out of our media? It seems what we see in real examples of life-long love have been pushed aside for glamorous, sensual, easy-to-get and easy-to-leave-when-it-no-longer-pleases-you ideas of love.
There's not much sexy about dealing with someone else's emotional breakdown, or sharing your money to buy groceries. But the reality is, life-long love includes daily life.
Those daily events are something Korean artist, Puung captures through her touching illustrations.
"'Love' comes in ways that we can easily overlook in our daily lives," Puung writes on her Facebook. "So, I try to find the meaning of love in our daily lives and make it into artworks."
