In 2012, he received the Dong Gang Photography Award.  „Since my school days, I have been sick of hearing about the North Korean Evil, so I have been curious to know who they are. As time went by and I grew older, I became more curious about knowing our true self, constantly trying to destroy the North Korean Evil. If so, is South Korean the angel of justice? I have been collecting the scenery of function and malfunction derived from the division of the Korean peninsula. I have been captured it with my camera and picked it up with my hands, and yet, I ended up thinking for a long time, wondering the meaning of what I have been gathered.“ (Noh Suntag)
