Professor Kim suggested ‘Piggy Dream’, a word made of first letters of 10 Trend keywords in English, as the top 10 trends of 2019, and explained the terms he created such as Cell Market, New-tro. Green Survival, Proxy Emotion, Millennial Family with interesting examples and stories. 
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” 

We would like to thank H.E.
