Professor Kim ended the lecture with Alvin Toffler’s famous quote “Change is not merely necessary to life – it is life”, emphasizing that “it is necessary to transform the social institutions and consumers’ perceptions according to the changes in industry, environment, and generations, and companies must be able to create goods, service, spaces with concepts in these changes”
